Short Freudian Test: What’s on Your Subconscious Mind?

Let's learn about yourself!

Psych2Go invites you to take a look deep into the secrets of your subconscious mind. Grab a pen and a piece of paper, turn the logic off, turn the imagination on, and let’s go!

  1. You’re peering into the sea. What do you feel?
  2. You’re walking in the forest and looking down at the ground. What do you see? Now write down the feeling you had.
  3. You watch seagulls flying above your head. How does this make you feel?
  4. You’re looking at running horses. What emotions did you get?
  5. You’re in the desert, and there’s a wall in front of you. You can’t see the end of it. There’s a little hole in the wall. You see an oasis through it. What are you going to do?
  6. While wandering around the desert, you suddenly find a jug full of water. What are your actions?
  7. You are lost in the forest in the night. Suddenly you find a house with lights on. Think of what you’re going to do.
  8. You’re in the fog, and you can’t see anything. What’s the first thing you want to do?

What do your answers mean?

  1. This is your attitude to life, your emotions, and wants.
  2. This is the way you feel about your family.
  3. Your attitude to women.
  4. Your attitude to men.
  5. This is your strategy for solving problems.
  6. This is how you choose your sexual partner.
  7. Your readiness for marriage and starting a family.
  8. Your attitude to death.

  1. your comment here….

    1). the air on my body and feeling of urine exiting my body/penis
    2). leaves, dirt, twigs, rocks, bugs, birds – the processes at work and my part in it all
    3). no different
    4). no different
    5). depends on the circumstances. Am I thirsty? (I presume you assume I am) I would look through the hole and circumstantially, I might look for a way to expand the hole (if it’s necessary … the size of the hole is not mentioned)
    6). verify it is actually water. consider if it is safe to drink. possibly test it…depending on the circumstances
    7). depends, do I have any camping equipment with me? Can I see anyone inside?
    8). get my bearings

  2. The fog question gives me the creeps (because i’ve had a dream about that.) My response was to get on hands and knees and feel my way along the ground to determine where I am.

    Question #6 “This is how you choose your sexual partner” :
    This corresponds to the finding of a jug of water in the desert.
    My answer was, “First sniff..then taste.” LOL!

  3. My answers…
    1) lightness, freedom, small, peace, quiet
    2)leaves on a wet ground. Excited
    4)interested/ curious
    5)try to make the hole bigger
    7)sleep outside not too far from the house but far enough where they won’t find me
    8)turn the high beams on

    My questions…
    *What does seeing seeing wet leaves on the ground in a forest & being excited mean as far as how I feel about my family? *answer 2

    * How does me drinking the water relate to how I choose my sexual partner? *answer 6

    *Does answer 7 mean that I see and am aware of the possibility of marriage and children but am not yet ready to make it apart of my life?
