An aspect of one's personality may be revealed by how he or she sees a drawing. In 1892, a German magazine first published a drawing, titled "Kaninchen und Ente," which means "Rabbit and Duck" in English.

It caught people's interest after it resurfaced on the internet. This ambiguous figure was used by American psychologist Joseph Jastrow to study the human brain. Along with Necker cube and Schroder stairs, Jastrow used the figure to theorize that perception is not just a product of the stimulus, but also of mental activity.
