If you follow our blog regularly, you’ll know we love sharing these odd images, riddles and quizzes with you to determine your personality. Did you know that some images are very telling about the way you think? The Rorschach test, the official name for ink blot tests, has been used for years. We have a new one for you: this image with a tree, a gorilla, a lion and fish. What did you see first?
Fun fact: this image is the logo of the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium in the United States.
Most people will see the tree first, so if you saw the tree you’re not the only one! The black tree in the middle of the image is very prominent, so it’s quite logical to see it first. This means you are practical and think logically. You act from your mind instead of your heart. You are able to make rational, well-thought-out decisions. This does mean you do have difficulty being in touch with your emotions, which makes it hard for you to express your feelings. You could try and take a little more risk and be a bit more spontaneous.
Did you see the gorilla first? This could mean you have a lowered self-image. You are perfectionistic and quite hard on yourself. Your standard is very high, and you expect the very best of yourself. This is difficult, as no one can be perfect and live up to your high standards. You are also very curious and you like to discover new things and experience new stuff. Try to focus on what’s good for YOU, not what other people expect of you.
If you saw the lion first it means you like your freedom. You are independent and act instinctually. You don’t like to judge and hate being placed in a box. If you feel suffocated by someone, you are likely to use your ‘claws’ to defend yourself. This means you can be quite direct and harsh, even if you don’t mean to be. You love life and live it to the fullest. Your heart is in the right place, but sometimes you forget how other people may perceive your behaviour.
Even though they are not very prominent, the fish were the first to catch your attention. This means you are an introverted person who doesn’t like to be in the centre of attention. You don’t show the true you to many people. Nonetheless, people like you and you’re easy-going. You are dependable and are able to build strong bonds with others, meaning you are often called ‘best friend’. Your empathic and people like being around you.
