We had this psychological experiment done in class and it was the raddest thing ever, just try it, okay? Do it before you click the read-more or the effect is ruined.
- Think of an animal you like. Write down three adjectives you would use to describe this animal.
- Think of your favorite color. Write down three adjectives you would use to describe this color.
- Think of this scenario: You are sitting in a comfortable chair in a room that is pitch black, and all you can see is a line of light going across your field of vision in this room. Describe, in three points, how you feel.
- Think of your favorite water environment — whether it be the ocean, or a waterfall, or a shower, or a bath, etc. Describe how you feel when completely immersed in it.
Under the read more is what psychologists suggest your answers to these questions indicate about yourself.
Here’s why I think this experiment is hilariously spot on, at least for me, but I suggest doing this for yourself the first time first, before reading anything after this cut, or the game is ruined.
