The illusion was shared on TikTok by Charles Meriot and it's amazed viewers with how accurate it is.

The illustration shows a pile of dusty books, but if you look closer the books also look exactly like an old man with a beard and a hat.

But which image did you spot first?

Charles explained: "If you saw the books first it means you love to absorb information and you have a lot of knowledge.

"But you have a very complicated personality," he added.

However if you spotted the old man before anything else it means something completely different.

According to Charles: "If you was the face first it means you're the life of the party.

"You're highly intuitive and you often make decisions with your heart."

Viewers were baffled by how accurately the illusion guessed the personality, one said: "The books! And I'm a science teacher!"

A seconded wrote: "The accuracy! I saw the face first."
