If You See Faces In These Objects You’re Probably Neurotic

The Sixth Sense, this ain’t. There’s a name for seeing Jesus in your toast – pareidolia.

According to a study from Tokyo's NTT Communication Science Laboratory, seeing faces in inanimate objects is a tell-tale sign of neurosis.

Those who are slightly more highly strung tend to be less emotionally stable than others and tend to see meaningful patterns that aren’t actually there, says neuroscientist Moheb Costandi.

Should you wish to test your own mental stability, check out the gallery below. If all you see is a string of happy faces, best check yourself in to a psychologist, just to be safe.
