What does your Shadow say about you? – Personality Test

Welcome to a new personality test that will help you explore yet further the depths of your psyche. Today we have a special treat. The word “shadow” is a powerful one in psychology, and the associations we make to it say a lot about who we are – or fear to be. So, as always, I’ll ask you to please take a look at the book titles (or potential book titles) below, and decide which one would best suit a book in which you’d play the protagonist! As always, please try to enter a relaxed state of mind, in which you can feel rather than make your decision.

  1. Silver Shadow
  2. The Shadow Prince/ess
  3. Beyond the Shadow
  4. The Shadow God
  5. The Name of the Shadow

Interpretations:

  1. Your demons are in the open. You don’t really fear them, nor do you find them ugly. You may be quite comfortable with your dark side. Saying you wear your heart on your sleeve may be a bit overboard, but you’re a sincere personality.
  2. You know you have valuable strengths. Ambition and confidence are words that define you. You may be somewhat manipulative when you deem it necessary, and you don’t really feel bad about it either.
  3. You’re an explorer – especially of your own soul and those you care about. You may be a good “therapist” kind of friend. Beware of energy vampires – some people are all about complaining and poison, and may abuse your powers and kindness.
  4. You feel the human being has limitless potential. Deep down you believe in the divine character of humans, and you’re willing to start on the tough journey of discovering and unlocking. You may feel that humans are descendants of gods.
  5. You’re extremely profound. You may have a love of reading, with special interest in philosophy and mythology. For many people you’re a delight to talk to, and quite fascinating. You’re mysterious and maybe compelling.

I’m cat-curious what you got, so please leave a comment with your choice if you feel comfortable sharing.

Shocking Psychology Facts

Here is another top 5 Shocking Psychology Facts! And we’ll keep them coming, folks 🙂

  1. Critique harms more than it helps. Even a perfectionist will be caused to under perform if they’re criticized. There is no such thing as “constructive criticism.” If we are to criticize, we should start with praise, continue with our points of critique, and conclude with further praise.
  2. The bystander effect. When people are uncertain, they do what they see others doing, thinking that if others do it, it must be the right thing. That’s why people often stand around and watch other people being mugged or beaten – it’s often not fear, but self-doubt, mistrust in the own perception, which causes them to do what they see others do around them.
  3. People tend to be more honest when they feel someone is watching them, even if it’s only a picture on a wall.
  4. Depression doesn’t only affect the mind, but also the body. Studies show that “severe” depression causes cells to age, and makes people more susceptible to age-related disease.
  5. There is little difference between being in love and having obsessive-compulsive disorder. The biochemical reactions are almost identical.

Personality Test – What do your Villain Statements say about you?

Now we’re down to the nitty-gritty! What does the villain in you say about your personality? Take this personality test to find out. Just like in the other personality tests before this one, take a look at the statements below and decide which one of them appeals to you most. Just like last time, try to base your decision on what your gut tells you rather than your mind. Ready? Here we go.

  1. „Villains often come with pretty faces.“
  2. “I might be the villain of my own story.”
  3. “There are only two kinds of people in the world: villains and smiling villains.”
  4. “If you have a gun, you can rob a bank. But if you have a bank, you can rob everyone.”
  5. “The question isn’t, ‘who is going to let me?’; it’s, “who’s going to stop me.”

Interpretations:

  1. You often felt hurt by the people you desired and admired; your experience makes you one of the few who can resist an abuser who uses charm to manipulate; you’re a mentalist, a people-reader, and should often be feared.
  2. You’ve often been standing in your own way; you might have inner programming that hinders you in either your professional field or your love life; or maybe both; you might be too profound for your own good and fail to desire the things society tells you that you should want.
  3. You have trust issues; there’s no one you can really call your best friend, which makes you a dangerous person quite often; you’re often intriguing for other people like a viper with sparkling scales.
  4. You understand what’s happening around you, and you’re often sick to have to be part of the system; you’re rebellious, often bitter, but very articulate; you often have an influence in your circle.
  5. You pursue success at all costs; you’re not a person of many scruples, nor are you willing to compromise; you might do it, but only temporarily and with the thought of revenge; you’re determined and focused; a force for good or evil, it’s only a matter of choice.

So what did you get? I’d love to find out, so please leave a comment with your choice if you care to share. Check out the many personality tests in the Personality Tests section above, or by scrolling down the Older Posts on the Home page. Looking forward to reading from you!

The last number of your Birth Year tells you the purpose of your life

They say the last number of your birth year is especially important. It favors one of the basic elements of Feng Shui that defines your destiny.

The five basic elements – Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water – tell us a lot about ourselves and the ultimate purpose of our individual lives. Astrologers think these elements have a strong influence on people’s character and the turns of their destinies. They determine the mental organization, habits and personal preferences.

What’s your birth year? The last number reveals something about you.

If the last number of the year is:

0 or 1, your element is Metal

2 or 3, your element is Water

4 or 5, your element is Wood

6 or 7, your element is Fire

8 or 9, your element is Earth

 

  1. METAL

You always help people and take care of your loved ones, but you never ask for help yourself. This kind of independent behavior makes your entourage respect you. You hate it whenever someone tries to nose in on your life or gives you unrequested advice.

Professionally, you’re ambitious and lucky in business. You desire and relish in a prosperous life. Paradoxically, even though you enjoy attention and the limelight, you also want to be left alone. It’s not a good idea for anyone to challenge you, because you’ll defeat them.

One of your weaknesses is a way too sharp sense of criticism, which can cause you trouble in relationship with other people. You ask too much of yourself and of your loved ones.

  1. WATER

You’re generally well-liked, and many would think you’re a nice person. You’re capable of using other people in very practical ways in order to reach your goals. You act with the fluidity of a river, making a mark on your surroundings with your inner strength and charming calm. You easily win people’s affection, which makes them willing to follow you.

You make people feel special by appreciating their unique talents, which is why you can work so well with people and do good business.

Your weakness is that you always try to make people like you, which may drive you to go to great lengths and even alter your personality. This can cause you to become indecisive, passive and depressed.

  1. WOOD

This is the symbol of growth and progress. As the time passes you become richer in experience and knowledge, and therefore more valuable like an old wine. Dynamic and active, you socialize easily, and you maintain a positive attitude toward life’s challenges.

Professionally, you’re a great organizer, and you can make plans on large scale. You’re capable of making good decisions because you care about the people you work with. People trust you. Your open mind and compassion make you an excellent friend and colleague.

You’re always looking for opportunities for growth and renewal. You understand and value people’s potential. You’re often overprotective towards your loved ones. To you, marriage and family matter greatly.

Your weakness is that you work excessively, but you’re still inclined to let others lead you. You need to become bolder, express yourself and show your worth.

  1. FIRE

This is the symbol of passion and action, fast movement, activity. You’re an enterprising person, adventurous, restless, competitive, strong. You like to laugh and look at life with optimism. Enthusiastic.

You may conquer many hearts thanks to your seductive and affectionate style. You live great passions.

Professionally, you possess leadership qualities, and you’re result-oriented. You’re impulsive and impatient.

People are attracted to you in a magnetic way, and you guide them through experiences that make their adrenaline surge. Your mind is always working, and you always have new ideas and intelligent solutions.

Your weakness is that you easily become stressed out, and you have low tolerance of frustration. You’re impatient, you want it all here and now, and you can easily fly in a rage if your needs aren’t met.

  1. EARTH

This is the symbol of stability, safety and trust. You’re a wise and patient person, perfectionist, prudent. A responsible character, you’re given to self-sacrifice in favor of other people.

In you people find great counsel and a haven because you have a serene perspective on things. Share your wisdom with others, and teach them to achieve the mental tranquility that you possess.

What leads you is logic, which reins over feelings in your case, and you plan your life in as much detail as possible. You don’t like surprises, and you desire full control over your destiny. Your calm and reserved demeanor make you attractive to the opposite sex.

Your weakness is that you don’t trust your intuition, and you question the possibility of making your dreams come true. You’re way too reliant on your logic, dependent on controlling all life situations, too afraid of the unknown and losing control. Try to get rid of the blockages in your mind.
