Psychology is such an interesting subject, it can reveal unknown facts about your personality in an instant, through the method of images. Take the remarkable Blob Tree Test, developed by the famous British behavioral psychologist, Pip Wilson, for example. The test is highly effective in determining facts about your personality, and also helps understand how you perceive the world.
Although the blob tree test is used in many schools to determine the mental health of children, it has proven to be relevant in the case of adult personalities also.
The blob tree test is inspired by the theories Wilson put forth in his book, The Big Book of Blob Trees, where the author uses 50 different blob trees, characters, and scenarios to explore feelings, and understand hidden emotions that individuals or groups may experience personally.
Choose a blob figure and we will tell you what kind of a person you are:
The blob tree test depicts a tree where several illustrated figures are shown in different moods and positions. As you can see in the picture above, there are figures with various facial expressions sitting on/trying to sit on/climbing/lying around the tree. Each of these figures describes a certain mood and a certain activity.
First of all, take a good look at the tree and its denizens; then choose two figures. Not randomly. You have to carefully choose two blob figures:
- The figure whose mood/activity you think resembles you the most.
- The figure you would want to resemble, i.e, be like in the future.
Your choices will reveal facts about your psycho-emotional state and personality.
