Innovative Thinking – I Can’t Sleep – Blog 039

Look at the image above.  Just a standard, difficult maze design?

Keep looking at it.  In a few seconds you will see the words “I Can’t Sleep”.  Once you see them, you can’t “not” see them any more.

Isn’t it amazing how the brain can identify patterns in the most complex images and lock on to them.

Sometimes this works in our favor by helping us see the solution in a sea of contradicting information.  Sometimes, when our brain locks onto what it thinks is the solution, isn’t and we can’t see past it.
