Your subconscious is incredible. It abandons all logic and thinks symbolically. It’s the gate connecting you to the world of the intangible.
Today, I challenge you to dive into that subconscious-driven world. What for? A personality test unlike any other you’ve ever done!
It’s believed that this test, called the ‘Tibetan personality test’ was put together by the Dalai Lama. To complete it properly, you need to think abstractly. Don’t spend too much time focusing on each exercise; just go with the flow and pick the answers that pop into your head..
Grab a notepad and a pen and prepare to learn a lot about yourself!
Ready? Let’s get started!
#1 – Imagine there are five animals in front of you.
They make up quite an interesting cast of characters; you’ve got a cow, a sheep, a tiger, a horse and a pig.
Put the animals in whatever order makes you feel happy. Remember, don’t think too deeply; just write the names of the animals in an order that you like.
Question #2 – Describe every noun in this list.
- A dog is _______.
- A cat is _______.
- A rat is _______.
- Coffee is _______.
- The sea is _______.
Use only one adjective per noun.
Question #3 – Think about 5 people that are significant in your life.
For each of the five people, choose a color from the following list:
You can only choose one color per person. Remember, don’t choose wisely – choose intuitively.
So, what does it all mean?
Let’s break each question down and look at what your answers mean.
Question #1 – Your Priorities
- Cow: Your career
- Tiger: Your self-worth
- Sheep: Love
- Horse: Family
- Pig: Money
The way you ordered these things is, of course, indicative of what you prioritize in life.
Question #2 – Your Attitude Towards Life
- Dog: Your personality
- Cat: Your partner’s personality
- Rat: Your enemies’ personality
- Coffee: Views about Sex
- Sea: Your life overall
The adjective you chose to describe each noun relates to your subconscious view of what that noun represents.
Question #3 – Your Attitude Towards People
- Yellow: Someone who had a major impact on your life.
- Orange: Someone you consider to be a true friend.
- Red: Someone you love wholeheartedly.
- White: Your kindred spirit.
- Green: Someone you will never forget.
Color plays a large role in shaping your subconscious view of yourself, as we discuss in this post.
