"If you're not picking up on those higher frequencies then it sounds more like Laurel".

"Another user tweeted", When you hear both Yanny and Laurel, but your friends pressure you into choosing one or the other.

But there are also plenty of White House staffs who only hear Yanny, including strategic-communications director Mercedes Schlapp. "All I hear is Yanny", Sanders replied.

One of the first things to understand is a concept called priming.

There are actual reasons why an individual might hear either word.

Moeen Ali pitched in with 65 runs to help Bangalore reach 6-218, overpowering Kane Williamson's 81 off 42 balls for Hyderabad. Needing 20 off the final over, Williamson was caught on the boundary by Black Caps teammate Colin de Grandhomme .

Unless you live under an internet-less rock, you've probably been asked the question sometime this week: yanny or laurel?

How you listen to the recording will also affect what you hear. "I heard 'Yanny, '" said the puzzled Hetzel, when she looked up the word "Laurel". Listening with headphones, speakers or on a laptop or smartphone will affect what you hear based on sound quality. So hearing Yanny might mean you have younger ears. Some Twitter users found it amusing, while other scoffed at it.

Ivanka Trump is definitely on Team Laurel, but Kellyanne "alternative facts" Conway isn't too loyal to her side.

What made it viral is that while some people thought it's obviously Laurel, the rest were convinced that the robot voice was saying Yanny.
