Optical illusions with words

it’s all about optical illusions with words.

I’ll start off with a classic. Check out the following image.

Name the color

Say aloud the ink color of each word. How quickly can you do it? Did you slow down?

The next one is a really cool wedding card. When the card is closed, you’ll see the name of the bride. When opened, the name of the groom will appear. Can you discover the names of the newly weds?

Names on a wedding card

This one is pretty strange. Just look at the words below. Doesn’t make any sense, does it? Now sit back and try to read the text. The text will explain itself.

First and last only matter

What do you read here? Most people will read evil, but some will see the good in life at the first time.

Good or evil

Somewhat simular to the previous illusion. When you don’t see the womans reflection in the mirror, you’ll read hate. But when you see her reflection, you’ll see her true self.

Hate or love

When looking at the following illusion, you’ll probably read the word Life. But when you look closer, you’ll see the characters are pretty messed up.


Another double word illusion. Most people will see the word “Me” in brown directly. Only few will think about others the first time and see the other word.

Me and You

The following illusion looks like a couple of blocks don’t doing anything. Can you see the words within these blocks? Try closing your eyes just a little bit, looking through your eyelashes.

No sex

This is a double word illusion that fits exactly in this topic. Which two words are spelled here?

Optical Illusion

Read the text in the triangle below out lout.

Paris Springtime

Did you read I love Paris in the springtime? If so, you’re wrong. Look again and check what is really spelled.

In this illusion you’ll read the word Teach and the reflection of it. Can you read the second word (the reflection) too?

Teach or Learn

The following four illusions show faces of people. The faces are created with words, showed both sides of the person. Can you see what person it is and which words they’re spelled in?

Dead or Alive
Peace or War
Threat or Pretext
Tiranny or Freedom

Bonus: FFF

Count the “F‘s” that are in the following text.


How many “F‘s” did you find?

Wrong. There are 6 F’s in the text above. Read and try again.

How is this possible? Your brain isn’t compatible of processing the word OF. Everyone that finds the six F’s at once is a genius. Three is normal, four is very rare.

Bonus 2: Face

In addition to my article about the faces everywhere illusion, here is another face. Or is it a face? Try tilting your head to the right to see the word.

Face or Liar

It starts with an “L”. Can you see the word?

Thanks to the users in the comments, they placed a source where a couple of these images came from.
