    Default Yanny/Laurel dichotomy

    My theory is that sensors hear "Laurel" (what is) first, intuitives hear Yanny (what is underneath). 🤔

    I heard Yanny. Some are theorizing it has to do with sound frequencies picked up by the brain.

    Yeah I heard that too. But my dad is older and has hearing issues so according to those theories he should hear Laurel. but all he heard was Yanny.

    I don't think it's type related! More related to sound frequencies than abstract type concepts. (I can only hear Yanny.)
