In this report; we investigated the correlation between the entropy and the psychological quantity obtained by showing several contents which show binary dot pattern images to participants. We examined the correlation between the entropy values calculated by several different algorithms and the psychological quantity by three verbal expressions. In the comparisons between the binary dot patterns which have natural randomness that may exist in real photo picture; we obtained that the psychological quantity by three verbal expressions have high correlation with entropy values. We found that the entropy values calculated by means of measuring the length between each black pixel has highest correlation to the psychological quantity.
