What Did You See First? Let’s See What It Says About Your Unique Personality Traits

There is something truly amazing about our minds and what they perceive. Our perception, whether it be visually, audibly, or physically, is always changing and shifting depending on a few variants. When you look at the above image, what did you see first?

One of those variants is our subconscious mind.

Several psychologists and researchers have delved deeply into the conceptualization and understanding of the subconscious mind. The fact remains, our subconscious is a mystery slowly unraveling before us on the very outskirts of our conscious perception. In other words, it’s there and we are aware of it…without being aware of it.

Our inner-most desires, our thoughts before we fall asleep, and our childhood dreams all play a role in what our subconscious mind shows us.

Look at the picture below and note the first thing you see. Do you first see trees, roots or lips?

A. Trees

If the first thing you see are trees and/or tree trunks, there is a large possibility you are an extrovert. You show kindness to strangers and are polite to those you know, but you have a limit and there are two things you won’t tolerate: being pushed around or mocked.

You are a sensitive soul who shows compassion to others. You pretend not to really care, but the truth is that you care greatly what they think of you.

Even though you surround yourself with people you consider to be friends, you know deep down in your heart that only a few of them are sincere and authentic. You come across as a sensitive person, but make no mistake- you are as strong as they come. You are also extremely intuitive and when it comes to showing your true emotions you would rather hide them than put them on display.

In addition, you tend to not trust people very easily. You are a mystery to some people, and they’ll never figure out what’s going on in your mind. You have a tendency to say ‘yes’ to new opportunities, making sure you succeed in anything you put your mind to.

B. Roots

If you noticed roots first, you are likely an introvert. Acknowledging your mistakes and accepting constructive criticism is what helps you to improve yourself for the future.

At first, when people meet you, their first impression of you is usually wrong. It’s likely you’ve heard “when I met you I didn’t think I’d like you,” or “when I first met you I thought ___” countless times. However this impression changes when they get to know you and they start to realize you are extremely wise, and have tons of personality. It’s really not your fault you give off a different vibe at first- we all have walls for a reason after all.

You are someone who is incredibly diligent with tasks. If you want to accomplishing something, you will. You have morals and principles which you use as a guide to live by. This has made you the kind of person who knows what they want and will achieve success in life because of this clarity.

When people get to know the real you, it becomes obvious you are an independent and responsible person who always strives to be a better version of themselves. You suffer from low self-esteem sometimes, but you have genuine friends who remind you of how amazing you truly are when you need to be reminded of it.

C. Lips

If lips are what you first saw when you looked at the image, you are a simple and quiet person. You prefer an average life which is not complicated by unnecessary commotion to find fulfillment. You are very flexible in your thoughts and manners and always go with the flow.

You are wise and also sometimes naive as your thoughts are not malicious and you always have good intent. You may be perceived as weak and in need of help but in reality that is not true. You have strength in dealing with problems on your own without the help of anyone.

You do not care for complicated relationships and like to be honest with people. Therefore people come to you for advice or to talk to because they know they can trust your opinion.
