So, the image below is actually one of a concave face. Most people see it as a convex face, because our mind subconsciously brings out human facial features. Sort of like a cognitive short cut (the face on mars etc)

The optical illusion doesn't, however, affect schizophrenics. Their minds do not make sense of the image, and view it for what it is; a concave face.

Haha, not necessarily. Drunk, or high people can see the concave face. Also I imagine people with visual impairments may be able to as well

Concave is like looking at the inside of a bowl, convex the outside. So if the face appears to be coming out of the image, you're seeing the convex picture. If its like looking at the back of a mask (the bit your face goes in) its concave.
