The animal you see first in this visual personality test reveals secrets about your personality
The animals/animal you see first in this image can offer a lot of insight into your personality. People have long thought that animal choices say a lot about your personality, but new scientific studies show there are differences in the personalities of people that prefer different animals. Which animal or animals your eyes were drawn to fastest in the image can reveal details about your personality.
1. The Bird
If you saw the bird first, then you have an open and extroverted personality. You love mingling with others, and you are a very social person by nature.
2. The Crab
If you saw the crab first, then you are a person who has an amazing sense of humor and tends to always look towards fun and laughter for having the best time. You are a pro at diffusing tense situations with humor.
3. The Bird & The Crab
If you saw the crab, and the bird at the same time then that means you are a very emotional, and sensitive person by nature. You are one of those people who are driven by their hearts more than their minds, and you approach every situation with a lot of sensitivity.
4. The Horse
If you saw the horse first, that means you are a very independent, free-spirited, and self-reliant person. You are also quite spontaneous by nature, and spread cheer wherever you go.
5. The Dolphin
If you saw the dolphin first, then that means that you are an aesthetic, imaginative, and creative person. Originality is your middle name, and you always focus on just that.
6. The Ducklings
Finding these two ducklings is something that a lot of people cannot do, but if you did it says a lot about you. This means that you are an extremely detail-oriented, and focused person, who rarely misses anything
7. The Bear
If the bear caught your eye first in this image, then it signals that you are a person with amazing leadership qualities. People look towards you for guidance, and motivation.
8. The Puppy
If you saw the puppy first, then you are an innocent, and naive person who has a very nurturing, caring, and benevolent disposition. You love taking care of other people and are emotionally mature and intelligent.
This imaging test works toward identifying your governing personality traits because your subconscious mind plays a big role in deciding which animal you see first. This is also known as convergent thinking. Psychology Today defines convergent thinking as the ability of your brain to naturally limit the choices it can think of.
Convergent thinking relies on instinct and preferences, making the first item you see the one that feels most natural to you. It reflects your inner beliefs and desires.
This exercise can also uncover more about the way you think. In his book, “Thinking Styles” psychologist and college professor Robert Sternberg talked about the fact that people think differently and that it affects how they learn, work, and interact with others.
How quickly you identified other animals and whether you were able to see all of them can help identify your thinking style and mental agility. The traits of the animals/animal which you see first in the image speak about your characteristics, but the way you concentrate on the images shows your thinking style.
• Finding the bird and the crab requires focusing on contrast. If you were able to find both of them quickly, your brain processes information very quickly, and it is easier for you to spot connections and patterns.
• Seeing the horse was a more difficult thing to do actually. It shows that you have the ability to look deep into something, and you are very intuitive.
• Finding the dolphin’s image requires a different type of thinking altogether. To see it you almost have to relax your eyes. This indicates the creative, expressive thinking often attributed to the right-brain.
• Seeing the bear requires a thinker with the ability to look at the big picture and not be caught up with other details.
So, did you find all the 7 animals in one go? If yes, then what does it say about you? The more animals you found in the image, the more divergent is your thinking compared to convergent thinking. That sounds complicated, but divergent thinking is just the process of finding more options.
If you found four or more animals in the image, you’re already well on your way to becoming a divergent thinker. Studies show that divergent, creative thinking offers many benefits. Divergent thinkers learn more easily and solve problems more creatively.
