The purpose of this paper is to find the variation of Muller-Lyer illusion and analyze the characteristics of the individuals. We carry on the experiment by an illusion instrument which produced by Beijing Jade Bird Tianqiao Instrument & Equipment Co., Ltd. and Muller lyer illusion test software which developed based on the illusion instrument by us. Then 474 samples are got through the illusion instrument and the test software totally. The statistical analysis shows that the illusion quantity increases while the angle decreases with the test order of 30°, 45°, 60° or 60°, 30°, 45°. But the illusion quantity of 45° is greater than 30° and the illusion quantity of 60° is less than 30° with the test order of 45°, 30°, 60°, which shows that the order of test has an effect on the experimental results and the adaptability is conducive to reduce the amount of illusion in this test group. At the same time the statistical analysis also shows that the illusion of females’ is higher than that of males’, and the female in the group of whose illusion quantity of 45° is the biggest were almost the students who achieved outstanding academic performance.
