Have you ever wondered if your brain works differently from others?

Well, the picture puzzle proves exactly that and confuses everyone because no one can decide how many squares are in this picture, but how many can you see?

How many squares do you see in this image? Stunning image baffles the internet Credit: Playbuzz

A Playbuzz user shared their thoughts on this awesome optical illusion as users try to count how many shapes are squeezed into the image.

While math may not be everyone’s favorite subject, participants are simply asked to add up how many squares they see.

At first glance, the diagram appears to show a grid with two additional squares drawn in the middle, but when you look closely, you end up seeing many more.

## While trying to add all the squares, see if you can solve this puzzle:

A set of plastic squares is placed in front of the mirror, but instead of reflecting what we see in front, the glass reflects the cylinder.

Interestingly, when the shape is rotated, the images are reversed, and to make matters worse, the video shows the addition of more symmetrical shapes, creating a whole new illusion.

A set of four squares becomes overlapping cylinders, and two interconnected squares become two SEPARATE cylinders.

No wonder this awesome illusion drove people completely crazy.

This confusing reflection is what drives the optical illusion video.

Fortunately, you can stop scratching your head because another clever scientist has discovered that the secret behind the confusing images is “reverse engineering.”

Devon, from 3D printing company Make Anything, demonstrated that one side of each cylinder is shaped like a square and the other is more circular.

When rotated, the images change

At the same time, he explained: “Two sides are curved up while the other two are sloped down and this basically ‘corrects’ this ‘hot’ hybrid into a square or a circle offsetting in opposite directions, meaning it goes back to merge into a square or a circle when the true shape is exactly in the middle.

## Now, to find out the answer to how many squares there really are…

And the answer is 40.

The grid consists of eight small squares, 18 individual squares, nine 2×2 squares, four 3×3 squares, and 4×4 squares.
