The standard Muller-Lyer illusion introduced by Franz Carl Müller-Lyer

The standard Muller-Lyer illusion introduced by Franz Carl Müller-Lyer, has been an optical illusion that has been drawn to the attention of many psychologists in the most recent times. In the Müller-Lyer illusion, there are two identical lines that appear to be different in length despite the fact that they are both the same length. As shown in (Figure 1), this illusion was due to the presence of arrowheads at the ends of the lines. The line that was perceived as being shorter than the other was due to the “fins-in” organization and the other appeared longer due to the “fins-out” arrowhead organization (Mundy, 2014). Since there has not been a significant amount of research carried out on this perceptual illusion, many psychologists argue to provide a rational explanation (Dewar, 1967).
