5 Beliefs Sigmund Freud held about life – which one do you deem most TRUE or FALSE?

Sigmund Freud is a name that doesn’t need introductions. He was a psychoanalyst and psychiatrist who worked relentlessly to discover truths of the deepest and darkest layers of the psyche, and he was successful for the most part. His words are of great value. Here are some of his beliefs that he left as legacy. Which one resonates most with you as TRUE or FALSE?

  1. The goal of all life is death.
  2. There are two major factors protecting human health: to love one’s job and to love one’s life.
  3. Our weaknesses are our power.
  4. There is no such thing as love, there is only libido.
  5. People are more intelligent than they can imagine, and they are unimaginably immoral.

When making your choice – which one seems/feels most TRUE or most FALSE to you – also consider how the choice makes you feel, the emotions it wakes in you. Share in a comment, and I’ll get back at you with a short interpretation of what your choice says about you. Looking forward to your comment : )

Personality test – What do your Success Quotes say about you?

Your favourite success quote may just tell you what your sub- und unconscious settings are towards success, and therefore whether you will achieve it and how. Please read the quotes below and, staying completely true to yourself, choose the one you favour most. It will have something to reveal about you.

  1. “Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines practiced every day.” Jim Rohn
  2. “However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.” Stephen Hawking

  4. “Success is how high you bounce when you hit the bottom.” George S. Patton
  5. All you need in life is ignorance and confidence, and then success is sure.” Mark Twain

Interpretations:

  1. You’re hardworking, ambitious and calculating, these are your major strengths. You strongly believe – and you’re most probably perfectly right – that any person can achieve anything they set their mind to by means of hard work and discipline.
  2. You believe in talent, and you most probably have a lot of it. You feel a great need to discover what’s unique about yourself – or already have – and you believe we should all build on that unique something that only we, each of us, possess in order to fulfil our meaning in the world.
  3. You’re both ambitious and creative, but also innovative and original, these are your major strengths. You seldom go by the rules, but you also have principles. An electrifying personality, bold and interesting, you get a lot of attention if you unchain yourself.
  4. Endurance, persistence and tenacity are your major strengths. You’re a fighter, and you can put up with quite a lot. One of your characteristics that might surprise even you is your great capacity for tolerance. You’re patient with people, and you understand them on a deep level.
  5. You may be an intellectual, since you sub- or unconsciously believe success – at least in the material world – is for the fool or the stupid. You may be spiritual, and you may have a sixth sense that allows you to feel the world at its deeper vibrations.

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.

Personality Test – What’s your Life Purpose? – Part 1

What is your purpose in the world? Let us come a little closer to the answer – please read the quotes below and choose the one that you feel resonates more with your deepest beliefs:

  1. “Effort and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.” John F. Kennedy
  2. “The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows.” Sydney J. Harris
  3. “My purpose: to lift your spirit and to motivate you.” Mavis Staples
  4. “There’s a divine purpose behind everything – and therefore a divine presence in everything.” Neale Donald Walsch
  5. “The purpose of our lives is to be happy.” Dalai Lama

Interpretations:

  1. You’re the very definition of Driven, Strong and Makes-An-Impression. Whoever you work for or with – in case you’re freelance or a businessperson – is a winner. You’re reliable, efficient and tailored for success. You may do well in business or medicine – and these are only two major examples.
  2. You’re a kind person, and you may be patient. You’re profound and wise, and – as your choosing this quote clearly states – you may be a good teacher, writer or philosopher. You may be a good communicator; you sometimes talk a lot, sometimes it’s hard to get a word out of you, but you always manage to convey your meaning.
  3. You have a talent to impress people and to determine them to listen to you because you have a way with both words and gestures; you may want to make sure your drive to motivate people doesn’t stem from repressed vanity though; you may do well as a coach, a therapist or teacher.
  4. You believe in divinity, and you feel its presence strongly; you may place quite some value on fate, which gave you reason to believe in it by proving its presence in your life quite often; it may be that your purpose is a purely spiritual one; you may do well as a counselor, social worker, or you may be talented at dealing with difficult people, such as underage offenders; even though not regarded as a real job in our way-too-money-focused world, you make a really good friend.
  5. You’re a person who focuses on the essential; you’re well-grounded and sophisticated, simple and elegant, deep and a person of few words; you’re dual from a number of points of view; you may have trouble with worldly purpose such as money-making, since you tend to do only what you like; you may not know this, but deep down you’re a rebellious nature, and you often rebel against yourself – like when you decide to do something and then you go ahead and do the exact opposite.

Personality Test – What do your Death quotes say about you?

Last time we looked at what our Love Quotes say about our personality, and I promised that today a personality test on Death Quotes would follow, since Eros (Love) and Thanatos (Death) are so closely related to each other. This is the first of a series of two personality tests based on your Death Quotes, so this is only layer 1. Scratching the surface. What you have to do is read the following quotes and let yourself feel which one resonates best with who you are:

  1. “A man who lives fully is prepared to die anytime.” Mark Twain
  2. “It’s not death a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.” Marcus Aurelius
  3. All our knowledge merely helps us to die a more painful death than animals that know nothing.” Maurice Maeterlinck
  4. Death is a delightful hiding place for weary men.” Herodotus
  5. I’m not afraid of death, I just don’t want to be there when it happens.” Woody Allen

Interpretations:

  1. You love and enjoy your life or, if you don’t, you’re totally capable of doing so if only you could delegate some of your responsibilities; you believe there is so much to enjoy and appreciate, and you may have little patience for whiny brats; people may love to be around you for your positive nature; you rarely complain.
  2. You appreciate the light in life; you may have had to put up with too much hardship; you may be the type of person who’s very responsible, the kind of person people come to when they need a solution, counsel or money; you’re the strong and reliable one, with a positive approach to life.
  3. You’re deep and maybe a bit dark; you’re as strong and reliable as #4, but you’re grimmer, and you have an appreciation of the heavy; you may feel that overly positive people are either phony or stupid, and you don’t have much tolerance for triumphant speeches, candy or pink ribbons.
  4. You’re an experienced, wise person who listens more than they talk, and who’s learned to master both their drives and emotions; you may have turned into an intellectual, and you appreciate like-minded people; you’re a person of reason, and you love civilization, good old wine/scotch and harmony.
  5. You’re well grounded in reality, you have a refreshing spirit, you’re witty and often funny; people love to be around you because they get such a good vibe from you; you’re the kind of person people resonate with, and you may be generally well-liked, especially when acting like yourself.

  5. “I hasten to laugh at everything, for fear of being obliged to weep.” Pierre Beaumarchais

Interpretations:

  2. You’re a tough person, and your friends may see you as the epitome of ‘strong’; you may sometimes feel that the goal justifies the means; you can be very calculated and even dangerous; you’re dignified, and you may have suffered a great deal in your youth; your innate strength is toughness.
  3. You seek to defeat your fears; you seek to face them and master them; your innate strength is intelligence; you may always be a step ahead of your opponents in matters of strategy; you’re often honest, but diplomatic instead of straight-forward; you try to be fair, but you don’t expect to be treated the same.
  4. If you truly understand and feel this quote to the core you are a deeply wise person; you don’t fear your own strength in terms if what you might achieve, but in terms of the atrocities you’re capable of; you may seem very kind and sweet – even to yourself – but you’re capable of great cruelty provided with the right reason.
  5. You’re witty and sometimes sarcastic, sharp-tongued and even poisonous; to you, it’s not about being hurt as much as it is about being offended; clever and quick, you may be quite fascinating at least to people of the same sex; people want to be like you; you may be an influencer.

Personality Test – What do your Anger quotes say about you?

Long time no personality test, so let’s have a special one before we start off into a well-deserved weekend. Since some weeks can be quite demanding (I know mine has been), anger can be unavoidable. So let’s relax, sink into our cushions and explore our subconscious mind to discover what our attitude to Anger says about us.

Read the quotes below – which one represents your feelings about anger?

  1. You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger. (Buddha)
  2. Speak when you are angry, and you’ll make the best speech you’ll ever get. (Laurence J. Peter)

  4. When I am angry I can pray well and preach well. (Martin Luther)
  5. No man can think clearly when his fists are clenched. (George Jean Nathan)

Interpretations:

  1. You know how poisonous anger can be for the soul, you’ve probably experienced this poison quite a few times; you may be a patient person, often kind, but you’ve been in some dark places not everyone experiences in life.
  2. You feel anger is creative; it’s a driving force for you, and you may even seek the feeling when you need a kick; you’re not afraid of anger, you can deal well with it and use it to advantage; you may think that people are more attracted to you when you’re angry.
  3. You’re a positive and probably busy person; you have responsibility and sometimes worry, you deal well with it, but when you unwind you prefer it light and funny; it may get on your nerves when people get too philosophical because it tires you.
  4. Similar to number 2, anger helps you channel your inner strength, which you use to learn and convey lessons; you try to stay humble and grounded; you may be a good influence for the young, and people may come to you for advice.
  5. Reason is high up in your value system; you admire efficiency and cool-headed approaches; you’re open minded and accepting, you may even militate for people’s right to be different and express themselves; you could be an engineer as well as a therapist.

Personality Test – What do your Funny Quotes say about you?

Welcome to a new personality test! Curious what your your idea of “funny” says about you? I know I am : ) Please read the quotes below – which one sounds more like you?

  2. Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.” Mark Twain
  3. I can resist anything except temptation.” Oscar Wilde

  2. You have deep understanding for the human being and its weaknesses; you don’t consider yourself above them, you’re usually kind and calm and understanding, but when you lose it, it can get ugly.
  3. You’re a refined intellectual whether you know it or not, and you enjoy a bit of decadence now and then; by contrast you may be a rather clear-headed person, trusted to make the right decisions by day, but you may shed skin at night, so to say.
  4. You’re mundane and have little patience for ambiguity; you may have a latent or subconscious disdain for over-intellectuals and philosophers; you’re quick-witted and often sharp-tongued.
  5. You place great value on reason and intelligence, you may secretly think they can save the world; you may consider impulse and temperament lowly, and be mad at yourself when you fall prey to them – you’re only human, you’re aware, but you strive to grow constantly.

Personality Test – What do your Money Quotes say about You?

Time for another special personality test! Today we’ll look at what your attitude to money says about you. Please read the quotes below – which one sounds more true to you? Your choice will say something about you . . .

  1. “The lack of money is the root of all evil.” – Mark Twain/George Bernard Shaw
  2. “Money is only a tool. It will take you wherever you wish, but it won’t replace you as the driver.” – Ayn Rand
  3. “I have always been afraid of banks.” – Andrew Jackson
  4. “If I have enough money to eat I’m good.” – Shia LaBeuuf
  5. “Never spend your money before you have earned it.” – Thomas Jefferson.

Interpretations:

  1. You’re wise about money, and even though you’re totally NOT avaricious or in love with money, you know you can’t live without it; you’re realistic, dependable and strong; you feel good about yourself when you earn money, because it makes you feel you’re strong enough to master the system.
  2. You’re idealistic and sometimes you wonder about this invention called money. To you, it’s more of a matter of philosophy. It doesn’t interest nor does it bother you that it exists, but you’re a freedom lover, and need of money is a restriction you’d rather people didn’t have.
  3. You’re probably more of an artist and an intellectual; you may be highly intelligent, but financial and technical progress might be a challenge to you; on the other hand, this shows that you’re wary of the inventions of powerful people – they did a lot of harm before.
  4. You have a rather utilitarian kind of thinking, or you’re concerned with matters much above trivial greed and craving of luxury; you may be above the trivial in quite a number of ways, and you may see way beyond them; you’re well-grounded and sort of intellectually “elevated” at the same time.
  5. You’re definitely money savvy – or at least money talented; grounded and smart, reliable and hard-working, present and cautious, your mind works like a Swiss watch; you’re mature and mostly right, so you have every reason to be confident.
