This viral school bus puzzle has made many adults scratch their heads in a hopeless search of a solution! But the same cannot be said about children. It turns out that 80% of the young children presented with this puzzle solved it correctly in a matter of seconds. The puzzle is simple: Look at the school bus in the picture, can you tell which way it is going?
Take your time, be patient, and focus on the details! Can you see it?
If you say the bus is going left, you are right!
And the clue is more obvious than you may thing. In the picture, the bus doors are not visible, so it is correct to assume they are on the other side, which means they are close to the sidewalk and, therefore, the bus is going left.
Can the bus go right?
Absolutely! This answer is correct depends on the country you are from. People from the UK, Ireland, Malta, Cyprus, Australia, Southern Africa, and the Caribbean drive on the left side of the road. So they would look at the puzzle from a different angle.
It’s fascinating that the bus question stumped adults but not children! The young ones can sometimes solve puzzles faster because they are more visually attentive to details. Moreover, they have a flexible mind and do not follow preconceptions, according to The Conversation.
Their brains capture the visual image first, and come to conclusions based on what they see, while adults try to consider all the possible options and often hesitate about them at the same time.
So, how much time did it take for you to solve the school bus riddle?
