What Simple and Advanced Psychology Tests Uncover
Relational psychology tests have been utilized for years, and many people find that they reveal many unknown aspects of themselves. For instance, try the “Walk In The Woods” relational psychology test below. Be sure to remember your answers or to write them down just in case. First, close your eyes and imagine that you are walking through a lovely forest on a warm summer day.
#1: Which person are you with?
#2: What kind of animal do you see first?
#3: What does the animal do?
#4: How big is the animal?
#5: Is the animal free to roam where it desires?
Now, this is what some psychologists would tell you your answers mean:
#1: This is the most essential person in your life.
#2: If you see a peaceful animal, then you’re more peaceful than aggressive (and vice versa).
#3: Whether the animal approaches you, freezes, or flees indicates how most people react to your presence.
#4: If the animal was small, you only have a few significant problems in life (and vice versa).
#5: If the animal is free and not caged or restrained, then you are a more open than closed individual. If the animal is not free, then you are likely too closed-off from the world.
The above test is a good introduction to “The Great Psychologist Test.” In Psychology Today, psychologist and Director of The Lazarus Institute Clifford N. Lazarus argues that, “Most people have fears and anxieties. Often they are adaptive and rational emotional responses. But in many cases, fears and anxieties are not adaptive or rational. They do nothing but create huge and unnecessary barriers that block us from moving forward in life or simply from feeling better about ourselves.” In order to realize and face your own fears—which may have been repressed years or decades ago—take the advanced psychology test below.
If you dare!
Which image scares you the most?
#1: The abandoned house.
This means that you’re a genuine human being who does make a lot of frivolous decisions. What’s more, you normally place values and beliefs above personal gain or compromise. The covering on the wall symbolizes being emotionally closed and spiritually confused, and it likely means that you require intellectual satisfaction in addition to emotional release.
#2: The stairwell.
This indicates that you love life, but also that you fear death. However, this compels you to live healthier than you might live without this fear, so it doesn’t hinder you. It’s human nature to want to enjoy your life as much and as long as possible, but make sure it doesn’t prevent you from helping others enjoy their lives as well.
#3: The cave.
This suggests that you desire warmth in life, or from another human being. This is probably because you’ve been disappointed and hurt by people too many times in the past, both romantically and otherwise. Yet, it’s imperative not to lose hope and to keep spreading and attracting positive individuals.
#4: The wooden cabin.
The poor condition of the cabin means that you fear being poor or losing money. This can lead you to place too much value on material goods instead of other people, but you’re also extremely loyal (so there is some degree of balance). Be sure to articulate your conflicted character so other people don’t get the wrong impressions.
#5: The tunnel.
Unfortunately, this suggests that you are in emotional turmoil. It is essential for you to release your pent-up negativity in order to take control of your life and solve the significant problems that you’re faced with. Focus on the positives—and the light—in life.
#6: The door with chains.
Blue is the color of the sky, which usually means that’s what you strive for in terms of ambitions and goals. This indicates that you have a good grasp of reality and the global world, but also that you probably devote too much time and energy to working. Always remember to take time to yourself to rest and recharge.
