Apparently some people sometimes find themselves—to their own surprise—nauseous from certain non-graphic images. I have never experienced this myself, although I do get inexplicably stressed by tasks such as Aimbooster.

Recently @XeeleeFlower said that she felt nauseous from the following image, and I found that quite interesting.

Have you ever experienced such a thing? What are your thoughts regarding the matter?

Some images can cause seizures in individuals who are prone to them. While I am not one of these individuals, I feel that I may be prone to motion sickness. There is this thing called "cybersickness" which is basically motion sickness transferred to images/videos online. Even simply scrolling too fast on one's phone can bring this about. Fortunately, I think that in my case, it's not too extreme.

Have you managed to pinpoint exactly what type of imagery nauseates you? I was thinking that it might be similar to my stress response to some things, and I have not yet figured out exactly when I get stressed—I have only isolated cases without a common denominantor.

I'm not 100% sure, but for me, I think that it's caused by how quick the movement is in gifs like above. Something like this (Warning: could cause seizures) doesn't really bother me, which is why I think I may just have a slight tendency towards cybersickness as opposed to being really affected by it. For reference, when I was little, I would get carsick a lot. I think I just kinda grew out of it, though it may still linger a bit.

I get that falling sensation all the time which makes me nauseous. I can jump off a cliff in a video game and about puke but can fall further irl and it does not phase me.
