If you see animals in clouds, or a face in the moon, you could be a pareidoliac.

 

The following photos can test your ability to see things that aren’t there:

Seeing recognizable objects or phenomena in otherwise random or unrelated objects or patterns is called pareidoliaIt’s a form of apophenia, which is a more general terms for seeing apparently meaningful connections between unrelated patterns, data or phenomena.
Everyone experiences it from time to time. Nearly everyone occasionally sees animal or human shapes in clouds, for examlpe. This post contains photos that let you test your ability to see things that aren’t there.some ways, the pareidolic images we discover tend to indicate things about which we are most interested, whether they be people, puppies or planes. Finding such “embedded” images can fun and interesting, almost a hobby for some. But for some they can also fuel obsessiveness and paranoia. Enjoy finding your own pareidolic images, but keep in mind that what you are seeing is not really there, but in your mind.--Larry Sessions
I am most definitely a pareidoliac.  I see images in my bathroom carpet, tiles, wooden doors...you name it.  ^_^

At one place where I work they have marble walls, I see so many things! The other day I tried to NOT see something and got a headache!

And do you remember the pic I took on my way to work that looked like the fish on the left was going to eat the fish on the right?? COOL!
