Neuroscientist Patrick Cavanagh says that “It’s really important to understand we’re not seeing reality.” What we’re seeing instead is “a story that’s being created for us.”
A lot of times our brains will create a visual that may not actually be there, which we will see in some of the images below. It's truly crazy how our brain works and fills in the missing information that still might not be correct.
"Misleading Thumbnails" is a Reddit page that shares to us a bunch of thumbnails that aren't quite what they seem. Adding a misleading caption to an image can completely change what our brain thinks the image is.
"Not always what you think" is their slogan and it's for a good reason. These thumbnails and captions will make your brain do a whole turnaround because it doesn't know what it's seeing.
Let's look at these 30 examples of misleading thumbnails and captions that completely change the way our brain sees the image. Try looking at the picture before reading the caption to see how your brain changes perspective when you read the caption versus what you previously saw.
Let's get into these 30 photos that might actually blow your mind.
