85% of People Can't Identify All of These Different Patterns! Can You?
by Craig

Just think how patterns affect your life. They affect your mood, your first impression when you open a door to a new restaurant, how others see you - through your clothes and accessories. Patterns even help you feel truly comfortable in your home once you’ve decorated it. Some patterns bring a sense of history with them, such as a Celtic Knot or Tartan pattern from Scotland, or a sense of self, like an ethnic print. When you think of the number of patterns out there, it’s mind-boggling. And with new techniques and the ability to create your own designs, there is no end to the patterns available. 

Find out well you recognize the patterns of the world. Try your luck at this fun quiz. But a quick warning: You may start redecorating once you complete the quiz! 

Whether it’s taking a pattern from nature (coral) or a pattern from the world of art (watercolor) or from metal work (fretwork), wherever you gaze, you’ll see a pattern. Even today’s hairstyles include an ombre look – a pattern with shading from dark to light. 

With so many patterns for the eye to see, one can understand why the minimalist look is so popular! How good are you at identifying patterns? Eighty-five percent of the people who take this quiz can’t get them all. Test your skills now by clicking the button below.
