Test yourself - can you be controlled by mere pictures?

Updated on October 7, 2011

Have you ever believed your actions can be controlled by subliminal persuasion or by mere photographs? If you believe you are immune to such efforts I invite you to take this fun test to see just how strong you are against the power of subliminal visual suggestion - or yes, you can just take it for the entertainment value.

Explanation: the aim of this game is to see how well you can avoid my subliminal attempt to make you do something. Your objective is to show no physical submission to my attempt.

Instructions to play/test:

1. Do not proceed down the page before reading all the instructions.

2. Be sure you will not be interrupted for at least two minutes. Sit straight or stand, relax, and tell yourself that you will fight all attempts to force you to do anything except read and view this test.

3. Following these instructions are photographs. These photos may seem unrelated, but be assured none of them are frightening or offensive.

4. After reading this last instruction scroll down the page, giving each photo a nice look, at least 3 seconds worth, before proceeding to the next image. Remember, to win you must defeat my aim to make you perform an action via subliminal visual suggestion! When the photographs end you can read what behavior I'm attempting to make you perform.





:






How well did you succeed? Did you remain immune to the test? Did I make you do anything against your will?





If you yawned at least once your will was defeated by the power of subliminal visual suggestion.

    I passed! I didn't yawn. Probably because I was focused on not jumping up and down in Starbuck's - to my embarrassment! Voted up, up and away!

    Husky, have you been out fishing? Man, I wish I had time to do that. As I hear tell the carp and catfish are mighty fat and greedy this fall at Watauga Lake.

    Thanks much sweetie, and I'll plan to check out your hub tomorrow!

    So bethperry, what does it mean that I just woke up from having dozed off and had to wake my computer as well? Just kidding! But I am a bit tired and those photos didn't help curb my drowsiness. I really had to fight the desire to yawn. Trying to exist on a limited number of hours during the MV Striped Bass and Bluefish Derby (check out my hub on that one) certainly added to the challenge. Voted up and interesting.

    lol Rochelle! Good for you!

    Hmm..How about a photo of a neked Keanu Reeves with chocolate drizzled over his abs and a carton cloud saying "Buy now, buy now!" Not sure, but it might work :)
