What You See First Could Say A Lot About The Way Others See You

The way you perceive the world around you can have a definite impact on your personality and attributes. That’s basically the premise behind Rorshach tests as well. The test is named after its creator, Swiss psychologist Hermann Rorschach. Inkblot tests, as they are also called, analyze perceptions of images. Then, those responses are recorded and then analyzed using psychological interpretation, complex algorithms, or both.


Today, we will be taking a look at a very peculiar image. Your goal will be to relay what you see first. Keep in mind, there are no right or wrong answers. What you see first may tell you a lot about your personality.


Personality traits are complex. Research suggests that our traits are shaped by both inheritance and environmental factors. These two forces interact in a wide variety of ways to form our individual personalities.


Besides those aspects. There are others that may also contribute to your specific type of personality.


Personality is not determined by any single gene, but rather by the actions of many genes working together. Behavioural genetics refers to a variety of research techniques that scientists use to learn about the genetic and environmental influences on human behaviour.


What Do You See First

Take a look at the image below. Pay attention to what your mind notices first. Where are you drawn to? What do you see? Then, let’s dig deeper into what your answer means.


So, what did you see first? Take your time if you haven’t quite got it yet. Remember not to try and focus on any one area, but let your mind do the work for you. After all, this is about your subconscious and what it is trying to tell you.

Alright, let’s see what your answer means!


What Your Answer Reveals

For many of us, looking at an image will give the same results. If there is a tree painted in the foreground, we will all see a tree. But what about the abstract areas? Is there something within the shape of the leaves? The clouds? Are the ripples in the lake holding a familiar shape? All of these observations lead to analyzing the subconscious mind. Let’s see what yours is trying to say.

If You Saw A Couple

If you saw a couple kissing, then perhaps you are a hopeful romantic.


Despite everything that might be happening in the world around you, you stay hopeful. Your friends consider you to be the one who helps them through anything. Always a rock to lean on, you are a support system for more people than you realize. Everyone needs someone in their life who can make them smile. That person is you.


If You Saw the Explosion

If you saw an explosion similar to Hiroshima, then you are someone who needs a break.


Sure, a lot of us have been steadily pushing forward for the past 2 years. However, it’s not a good thing to always go-go-go and never have any rest. You may have felt like you have lost your sense of self, or who you used to be. That’s okay. As long as you remember that giving yourself some space and time to breathe isn’t selfish- it’s a must!

Be patient with yourself above all else. Whether you saw the couple or the explosion, be kind to yourself. You’re the only person who can be in control of how you treat yourself.
