How good are your visual skills? The good news is that as a photographer you're more likely to do well in the following test than the average punter.

In a study of 2000 people, less than 1% of people scored 100% in the missing-piece puzzle, but those with a creative background were found to have a better eye for detail.

Players are shown a series of 10 photographs each with a part of the image missing. They're then asked to select the puzzle piece which completes the photo within the time limit.

Participants who said they had previously worked in a creative role or studied a creative subject, performed better in the test. 23.2% of creatives got 7 or more correct answers, compared with 15% of non-creatives.

Overall, the most common score was 4 out of 10 correct answers, with 37.4% of participants getting this result.
