Testees are required to find the simple figure(s) embedded or hidden in a relatively complex figure. Field-independent people can get rid of the influence of the background image and find out the hidden figure, while field-dependent people will find it hard to finish the task
In the test there are 24 figures which are presented in 2 sets of 12 cards with complex figures and a set of 8 cards with simple figures. Each complex figure includes an embedded simple figure, which the subject is to identify as quickly as possible. Presentation is timed with a three minute limit . According to Bonham (1987), the EFT was adapted from Gottschaldt's figures by adding colored patterns to increase complexity.
