What You See First Reveals Hidden Aspects Of Your Personality

Like a classic ink blot test, abstract images and the way we interpret art can reveal noteworthy details about hidden aspects of our personality, and the way we think.

The psychological benefits of viewing art can also be quite wonderful, as art encourages creative thinking, increases brain connectivity and plasticity, and also increases empathy, tolerance, and feelings of love.

Art can be useful in getting both hemispheres of the brain communicating with each other, and art also enhances problem-solving skills as well.

While the meaning of the interpretation of what you see is ultimately up to you to decide, keep an open mind and you just might learn something interesting, new and enjoy the wonderful benefits that come from spending a few moments enjoying works of art.

Notice which image you first see when looking at the image above.

Read on below to discover the meaning of what you saw first in the image above!

1. The Armored Knight

If you first saw the armored knight in the picture, it represents your desire to enjoy life and to have fun, yet there may be some heavy inner emotional walls you've put up in order to protect yourself from being hurt.

You may have a deep desire for friendship and loving connections in your life, and the stable presence of a caring loved one.

Spend some time allowing your feelings to open up through the practice of self-compassion; start with healthy personal affirmations such as, "I am lovable, I am good enough, I am worthy of love and stability in my life."

Then take some time in a quiet place, and focus on the feeling of love in your heart. Once you can steadily feel the feeling of love, begin to bring that love to the 'you' within your feelings of hurt that may have originated from the past.

Tell this past, hurt part of yourself how much you love it, as consciously feeling the feeling of love towards this part of you will cause it to open up, to relax, and eventually to heal.

A stable support system can also be quite useful, so try reaching out a little bit; make regular plans with friends and family who you feel genuinely good being around, take a yoga class or a gym class, volunteer at a charity with other like-minded kind people to become friends with.

The sky's the limit, and your wonderful and supportive friends are out there waiting for you.

2. The Two Dancers

The two dancers represent your romantic attitude about the world, however it's one that you sometimes may try to conceal.

You may deeply value some of the close people in your life, yet you are not able to tell them how incredibly important they are to you as often as you'd like.

Consider thinking of a few small things you really appreciate about them, and then the next time you meet, express from your heart how much you truly love and value having them in your life.

An example of something you could say is; "You know, I don't always say it enough, but I truly and deeply appreciate how often you call me and check in on me to see that I'm doing alright.

I just want you to know how much I love you and really appreciate your calls. Thank you so much."

It could be something big or something small to mention to this wonderful person, but the important thing is that you are able to communicate to them your heartfelt love and appreciation.

The two dancers can also represent a somewhat hidden desire to have more fun in your life, so consider trying something new, whether that be taking an interesting class, learning how to draw or paint, traveling somewhere new or even reading a book on a new topic that you find enjoyable.

3. The Older Man's Face

If you first saw the older man's face, it means both that you can see the bigger picture in life without getting lost in the details, but it also means that you may be in a time of reflecting while looking back on valuable times in your life.

Sometimes there are moments in our lives when a gentle calling of what's truly important to us in our hearts speaks to us, and brings us to a place of stillness and 'knowing' inside.

We begin to think back to times that our hearts wanted to express itself more, a person we wanted to show more love to, a kindness we wish we had given, or even a time where we felt truly happy to be alive and our heart remembers the deep loving gratitude we still feel for the people that helped us in those beautiful moments.

The key to remember during these moments of heartfelt reflection is that something to learn is being presented to you; something to meet your heart's need and to fulfill your heart's inner request.

The past is a lesson we can use to learn from and to help us live a better today, so if your heart and mind are fondly recounting something from your past, think about how you might bring forth that same love and kindness into your life today.

Maybe someone truly helped you at a vulnerable time in your life, and their kindness moved you and helped to make you into the kind and caring person you are today.

Consider ways in which you might be able to pass on this same loving kindness to someone you encounter, even to a stranger, knowing that this act of love may help them in ways you can never imagine.

Your heart wants to expand in this way of love, so listen to what your heart wants, and then enjoy following it, take some action, and make something beautiful happen in your life.

My Personality Confuses People

5 Signs Your Personality Is Intimidating People

Strong or "intimidating" personality types have a specific view about the world. Oftentimes, the hardship or obstacles that one has had to overcome has shaped their personality and character.

Sometimes they come off as rude or crass, but really it's just their independent ideology and mindset that rubs people the wrong way from time to time.

Many of us do not figure out exactly how strong we are until we're in a situation that leaves us with no other choice but to be strong.

A strong, or "intimidating" personality type, can mean something different for everyone. But there are a few traits and characteristics that seem to be inherent in all of them.

Here are five ways to tell if you have an intimidating personality:

You get bored with mundane conversation

Intellectual conversation can be hard to come by, but strong personality types prefer it to the mundane banter that most people turn to in social settings. They welcome people who are intellectually curious, wishing to discuss anything worthwhile.

The intimidating part of this is that these people aren't afraid to tell you that. Especially when it comes to getting work done; they simply don't have the time for anything but actual substance.

You can't stand ignorant behaviors and attitudes

While this is somewhat of a generalization, most strong-willed people are very educated, whether it be from a recognized institution or simply through years of research that they've conducted on their own.

They've put in the time and effort to learn and understand as much of the world as possible, something that requires an open mind. So, when are willfully ignorant, artificial or judgmental, strong personality types will not tolerate it.

You create opportunity where there is none

"It seems that the harder I work, the luckier I get."

This quote describes the ability of a strong personality type to create opportunity for themselves without the help of others. Their dedicated work ethic creates opportunity, and their courage motivates them to take advantage of it.

And they're not about to feel sorry for anyone who is offended by their ability to succeed.

You're largely uninterested in attention from others

While characteristics of strong and intimidating personality types often invite attention (be it positive or negative), they really don't care for it.

Furthermore, they're not about to go out of their way to seek it out either. They prefer to focus on their work, making sure that whatever needs to get done gets done, and that it's done well.

You're uninterested in excuses

Because strong personality types have such a determined work ethic, they know all too well that things sometimes don't go as planned. But do they make excuses?

No. They analyze the obstacle before them, figure out a way to get around it, and push forward with their work.

Which is why they have absolutely zero time for anyone who's keen on complaining or whining without legitimate reason to do so.

Do you want to stress less, sleep better, and feel abundantly happier... without drugs or anything crazy?
