This shape can tell a lot about how a person thinks politically, apparently.

According to psychologists, how a person interprets it can reveal a person’s political views.

If you don’t think it’s a circle and answered ‘no’, you’re probably politically conservative, leaning to the right and believing in small government and a strong military, with a dislike for immigration.

In it, experts found that people who are more tolerant of shapes that deviate from the norm, and generally have a more flexible approach to interpreting shapes, are more tolerant of marginalised groups, and actively want to help them.

And if you don’t think this shape constitutes a circle you’re less this way inclined. Or maybe you’re just a bit pedantic…
