When you stop and consider it, the human mind is a pretty incredible thing.
The brain is so curious that it invents ways to understand itself better. Really kind of wild when you break it down like that, isn’t it?
One of the ways we understand ourselves better is through psychological testing.
Despite what you might think, testing your psychology to understand yourself isn’t just for mentally unstable people.
Anyone can do it. One of the popular ways is through simple hypothetical tests.
This test that we’re about to do, called a “psycho-dynamic” test, is a few decades old now.
It’s a tried and true way to reveal your inner feelings about your fears, likes, loves, and desires. We recommend grabbing a pen and a piece of paper and writing down what you see in your mind’s eye and what your answers are.
At the bottom of the article, we’ll discuss what each of your answers indicates about you.
From there, you can do with that information whatever you like.
We encourage you to keep an open mind, an open heart, and be willing to hear what the results have to say, but don’t over-analyze it or anything.
And if you think you have a friend or loved one who might like to take the test, be sure to share!
Picture yourself walking down a forest path.
Close your eyes and visualize the scenario if you think it’ll help you. Once you’ve got a good image of your forest, there are three questions that need to be answered:
Question 1: Are the trees organized in a pattern or are they randomly placed?
Question 2: Is it daytime or nighttime?
Question 3: Is the path wide or narrow? Is it well-traveled or rugged?
Be sure you’re writing down your answers so you don’t forget! You can even jot down a quick description of your forest to keep it fresh in your mind.
