Ready? Is this a circle - or is it not?
According to a study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, whether you see a circle or not could have a lot to do with how you see the world politically.
If you thought 'yeah, sure, it's a circle all right,' then you're probably a liberal thinker.
The study says you probably support LGBT rights, legalisation of drugs and a strong welfare state - while if you thought 'nah, no way in hell is that a circle', you're more likely to be a conservative who believes in a small government and a strong military.
According to the research, it's all about how flexible we are - and if we're less tolerant, or, as the study dictates, conservative, we're more likely to argue that as the 'circle' is an unfamiliar shape, there's no way it can be defined as a proper circle.
More liberal people are more tolerant, says the study, so they're happy to accept the circle as a circle, despite its unconventional shape.
