Abstract: Let $ f:\mathcal{L}(\mathcal{H}) \to X$ be a continuous function from the algebra of all bounded linear operators acting on a complex infinite dimensional Hilbert space $ \mathcal{H}$ into a $ {T_1}$-topological space $ X$. If $ f(WA{W^{ - 1}}) = f(A)$ for all $ A$ in $ \mathcal{L}(\mathcal{H})$ and all invertible $ W$, then $ f$ is a constant function. The same result is true for a function $ f$ satisfying the above conditions defined on a connected open subset of $ \mathcal{L}{(\mathcal{H})_0} = \{ T \in \mathcal{L}(\mathcal{H}):T\,$has no normal eigenvalues.
