What does this say about you?

I recently came across an interesting relational psychology test.  I found it so interesting that when I compared my notes to the “results” section I had goosebumps trailing up and down my arms.  We’ve edited it up a bit for you from the original to make it easier to use.  Richard and I will both post our results in the comments – so get out a notepad or a piece of paper and prepare to post your own answers to share and compare!


This is what they call a relational psychology test. The answers to these questions indicate relevance to values that you hold in your personal lives.

How to fill out the test:

  • Read the first line and imagine what it says.  So picture yourself walking in a forest etc.
  • Click on the sentence to reveal the question
  • Write down your answer, and then read the next line.
  • Repeat.

Let’s get to it!


Ready for some results?

Now – read through the following list and compare against the answers you wrote down.  This list will explain what your answers mean as they relate to things in your life.

  1. The person you were walking with is the most important person in your life.
  2. The size of the animal you come across is a representation of the size of your problems.
  3. If your action was more severe, it means you tend to be more aggressive. If it was peaceful, then more passive.
  4. The size of your home is representative of the size of your ambition.  If there was no fence around the home, it means you tend to be more open.
  5. If what you saw on the table wasn’t food, people, or flowers, it indicates some unhappiness.
  6. How durable the cup you found was is representative of how strong your relationship is with the person in the first part of the story. What you do with it is representative of your attitude toward them.
  7. The size of the body of water is related to the size of your sexual drive.
  8. If you became very wet, it indicates that sex is important to you. If not very wet, it may mean it’s less important.

My Answers:

I’m walking with my husband of course. He’s my favourite hiking partner.

Ohhhhh look, a cutie pie black and grey raccoon. So adorbs.

And look! He stands up on his hind legs and waves those little front paws in the air like my George kitty does. I have to give him a little scritch.

What a pretty little log cabin. It’s small to medium sized, no fence, fairly rustic.

Why are we breaking and entering? Are the three bears going to come in? Yikes. There’s a pretty, handcrafted table with a red cloth diagonally spread across the top, a white ceramic water jug on top alongside a mason jar filled with water and daisies.

Hmmm, who leaves a cup in the garden? It’s spackleware, blue and white enameled metal. I was obsessed with this stuff as a kid, though now I know it’s camping ware generally. I had a set for my dollhouse that I used to set their table for nice dinners – Hah! I’ll take it with me, maybe I will find some daisies of my own to tuck inside.

I stop at a wide expanse of lake with a long dock extending out toward the center. There’s a swimming float bobbing about partway to the other side. It reminds me of the lake at camp Windego, where I went as a kid for summer camp.

Well, I already stole a cup so I’m not going to steal a boat. Guess it’s diving in and swimming for me. I get soaked, of course!


1- I’m alone, but my wolf is with me somewhere out in the forest

2- A wolf – my wolf of course.

3- he ducks his head and bonks me with it, then licks my hand as I pet his head.

4- A small stone cottage, no fence and with a wide stone path leading up to it. The path is borded with shrubs and greenery, smoke curls from the chimney and the roof is thatch, but well cared for.

5- It’s set for dinner with a candle in the center

6- It’s a huge stone fountain. The bowl of the cup fills with clear water that spills over it’s rim and splashes down in a wide basin at its base. I drink from the clear water.

7- A huge expanse of water opens up before me, it was hidden by the garden and the trees on either side, but it’s a large lake. I can’t see the far side and the sun reflects off the calm slightly ripple surface. The water makes soothing sounds as it laps at the small stones by my feet.

8- I get soaked in sweat. There is a dock protruding out in to the water with an old wooden rowboat tied to it with two oars. I use the boat to cross the water, it’s a long but exhilirating journey and by the time I reach the far side I’m exhuasted.
