Our perspectives define our reality. How we interpret the various situations we encounter in our daily lives results in an array of emotions. Maybe you see the world through rose-coloured lenses, or maybe you’re a pessimist at heart.
First, look at the image. Don’t take too long, but simply allow the first thought that your brain processes about the picture to rise to the surface. What do you see?
If you saw a fiery explosion, then your imagination is very well-developed. In fact, this sense of creativity has helped you in countless situations. Chances are, you are a highly-imaginative individual who enjoys working in an artistic capacity. And if you don’t, then I bet there are at least a few talents of yours that are still yet to be discovered…as well as expressed. What are a few of the activities you enjoyed doing as a kid? Did you enjoy doodling, or giving names to shapeless clouds? Your creative energy needs a healthy outlet. So, whenever you feel over-worked or over-stressed, find a way to release those feelings through your gift of imagination.
You see everything. That’s because you are a very observant person who notices all the little things that others might miss. The slight changes in body language, the inflection of tone- pretty much nothing can be hidden from you. This goes hand-in-hand with your sensitive nature, and you are all-too-aware of the moods and emotions of those around you. You know how to talk to people in just the right way to get what you need from them without inciting conflict. Timing and patience are two of your gifts that others wish they had. Simply by asking the right question at the right moment, or waiting for the answers to some to you in the right time, you get what you need. You’re guaranteed to be successful in areas of work that require precision and awareness.
You also possess an active imagination, but you also rely heavily on logic for the majority of your decisions. Sure, you enjoy daydreaming when you can spare the time, but you prefer to focus on the things you can physically see with your eyes. You see things clearly. That’s probably why your friends are constantly flocking to you- for your expert advice. Escaping difficult situations is easy for you because you utilize a rational and sharp mind to find the best way out. Never giving into panic, and always keeping calm are two of your greatest qualities, and your friends appreciate how you can calm others down as well. Whether you understand it or not, people are naturally drawn to you, like a magnet.
If you can’t wrap your head around this picture, and only see a random blob of colour, then you need a rest. Your mind is clearly too stressed to complete an abstract thinking problem, and that’s an indicator of being overworked. Take some time for yourself and relax. Turn off your computer, silence your phone, and get away from the things that are contributing to your stress. Taking care of your mind is just as vital to your health as taking care of your body.
