Vertical-Horizontal Illusion

Run this application online

Image not available

The vertical–horizontal illusion (Bisection illusion) is the tendency for observers to overestimate the length of a vertical line relative to a horizontal line of the same length.

Within this vertical–horizontal illusion (inverted "T" version), only one variable can be varied: the length of the fixed line. If you vary at least 3 different line lengths within the same task, and repeat each line length at least 2 times, the application will calculate descriptive and inferential statistics for the dependent variables (absolute and relative error).
