So take a look at the inkblot. What do you see? At first glance, you might think it's nothing but a few blobs of colour. You know, the kind of thing the critics like to call a modern art masterpiece, even though most of us look at it with a somewhat puzzled expression.

Take a closer look

But take another, much closer look - because there's more to this picture than meets the eye.

If you saw two twin kitties standing side by side in perfect symmetry, it's fair to say you're a cat lover. But if a long-eared, friendly-looking pooch emerged from the screen, then you were right all along - you're a dog person!

But what else does the picture reveal about ourselves? Well, according to some experts, quite a lot!

They suggest that people who see kitties are likely to share many of the same character traits as their feline friends, including a strong independent streak, a conscientious approach to life's challenges, and, let's face it, a little bit of stubbornness.

The dog-spotters among you will tend to be the sociable, fun-loving extroverts. You've got a natural playful side, and you don't take life too seriously. In fact, you want to be everyone's best friend. But, just like our pooches, you might not always be aware of it when it's time to get serious.

What can a picture really say about a person?

So what do you think? Have the experts figured you out from just one picture? Or are you an enigma that will always confound their narrow expectations?
