All tests - Relational psychology - The cube

You are in a desert and you see a cube.


It is preferable for you to draw a picture and write your answers.

Try to concentrate on how you feel about what you are describing and not just on how it looks. For example, you may describe the cube a certain color because it gives you a feeling of calmness. However, another person may describe the cube a different color that also gives her a sense of calmness. Though both people picture the cube differently, the interpretations of their answers are the same - the cube represents calmness to them.


1. The cube

How big is the cube?
What is its color? What do you think about that color?
How far away is it from you?
Is it transparent? Can you see what is inside?
How big is the cube compared to the desert? What is the ratio?

2. There is a ladder.

Is the ladder leaning on the cube?
What is the color of the ladder? What is it made of?
What impression does it give you?
What is the distance between the cube and the ladder?


3. There is a horse.

What is the distance between the cube and the horse?
What is the color of the horse?
What impression does it give you?
Is it tied? Is there a saddle?

4. There is a storm.

What is the distance between the storm and the cube.
Is it a big storm or a small storm?
Is it passing by or staying?

5. There is a flower/ there are flowers.

How many flowers are there?
Where is/are the flower/s?
What is the color of the flower/s?
How do you feel about the flower/s?






Cube : The cube represents yourself. How you think about the cube reflects how you think about yourself. For example, you may think the cube is made of yellow stones. Yellow may give you a feeling of warmth and stone may give you a feeling of strength. Then, it means that you believe that you are a strong and warm person. The distance between you and the cube reflects your understanding about yourself. If the cube is far away, then it means that you do not feel close to your inner self. If the cube is transparent, that means you let people see through you. People can read your mind easily. The ratio of the cube to the desert is how you think about yourself in this world. The bigger the ratio, the bigger your ego is. A small ratio means that you recognize that you are just one part of this world and there are many other things out there beside you.

Ladder : The ladder represents your friends. If the ladder is leaning against the cube, then it means that your friends depend on you. If the ladder is supporting the cube, that means you depend on your friends. The distance between the ladder and the cube indicates if you feel close to your friends or not. Again, how you feel about the ladder reflects how you feel about your friends (e.g.. what you feel about the color of the ladder and the material it is made of).

Horse :
The horse is your partner/lover/significant other. If the horse is close to the cube, you are close with each other. If the horse is tied or has a saddle, then in your relationship, you want to be the one in control. Your overall impression of the horse reflects the impression you have of your partner.

Storm : The storm is the obstacle in your life. If the storm is close to the cube/ stationary, then you are always experiencing hardship in your life. If the storm is small, then it means the obstacle in your life is quite small.

Flower/s : The flower represents your offspring/ If the flower is close to the cube, that means you are close to your children. Again, what you feel about the flower indicates the feelings you have towards your children.

The cube is the length and width of a door. It's shiny and black, completely solid. It's kind of far away, maybe about 20 feet away? The cube is small in comparison of the desert... it's like I'm in the Sahara. I feel intimidated by the cube.

The ladder is leaning against the cube. It's a warm reddish-brown color, wooden, and the edges are rounded out. It feels safe.

The horse is standing next to the cube, white and calm. I feel calmed by its presence... it's not very majestic though. Or beautiful.

There's a big and bad storm out in the distance on the horizon. I can see black clouds and lightning. It's coming towards me, and I feel scared of it.

There are small pink and white flowers around the cube and horse. There aren't many, and don't have much of a presence in comparison to everything else. But they're pretty.

Everything makes sense to me except for the cube. I'm not sure what to think of it. Funny how everything is a bit distant to me.

I actually kept picturing a life-size Rubiks cube that the horse was sitting on while the ladder was lying in the sand several feet away. I saw approximately (because I counted) 876 white flowers with baby's breath. I think the flowers were lilies but I can't be sure that they weren't peonies. The storm was terrifying, almost like envisioning the tornado from the Wizard of Oz. I was fearful that it swoop up the poor horse that was sitting innocently on the cube. Needless to say, it passed very quickly, but then I saw it heading back in my direction. This test was very curious and I am feeling quite unsettled at the moment. Wow. I never imagined that a simple online quiz could eff up my life like dust in the wind.

Cube: the cube is small, just small enough to carry with both hands, and appears lightweight. It is a light blue, the sun reflecting off of it so the side is a real color. It's translucent, so you can just barely see through it, and there is nothing on the inside, which is also blue. It is very small compared to the desert, 1 desert:1 billion cubes.
Ladder: the ladder is free-standing, silver and red, and it gives me the impression that it is used in construction sites. The ladder is off to the left, not very far away.
Horse: the horse is to the right of the cube, with a saddle on but not tied down, and it's a brown, with a white patch between its eyes. It gives me the impression that is sweet, maybe old, and harmless. It is abot 5 feet from the cube.
Storm: the storm is behind the cube, but it's large and approaching quickly. It is very far in the distance.
Flower: It appears to be a rose bush, with May flowers but also thorns. The flowers are pink, and are in front of the cube. I feel that they are beautiful but not to be touched.

I am single and have no children.

My reaction to my kids was apparently, "What are they doing here!?"
26-06-2016 20:55
Cube: Small can fit my hand, mirror like.
Ladder: Old, brown, wooden
Horse: Brown, not far but not close, free
Storm: Bad, dark clouds, far but I can feel the wind.
Flower: A single yellow flower growing out of the ladder.

It's weird.

Small light grey cube hovering slightly, 3-4 meters away not at all transparent. Awkwardly just there.

Standard metal free standing later a foot away from the left side of the cube get a wtf is it here impression just like with the cube, the is no one else out there why would a later be there.

There is a brown brown horse, average sized, no saddle or rope that walks over and awkwardly stands close by the other side of the latter facing me. I get a lonely impression for the horse because the horse is one in a cloudy dessert, dim desert.

The storm starts, but it's far away, I. The background it becomes humid tho.

No flowers unless I really try, then they are red

My daughter gave us this test and it was spot on!! My husband envisioned a 6 ft by 6 ft wooden cube that was like a child's block, with each of the other items as a picture on each side. We think he was influenced by having played blocks with our granddaughter just minutes before. His images were lovely and warm, but clearly compartmentalized and organized. He's an airline pilot. His entire life is organized this way and he does not get distracted, EVER, when he's focusing on something. I really liked his horse; a carousel beauty, but without the bridle or pole keeping her restrained! His flowers= desert blooming cactus!!

Desert: very dry, very expansive. No flora or fauna.

Cube: about 2 feet tall, 15 ish feet away from me. It's black, kinda shiny but not that shiny. I do, in fact, see myself as just a part of this very large world and work aggressively to cultivate humility in myself.

Ladder: light-colored wood. Lying on the ground about 4-5 feet away from the cube. I don't have all that many friends, and I certainly don't like to have any sort of codependency going on. I don't really know what the color means LOL but I suppose it means I think the best of people?

Horse: dark brown. It's a strong, able-bodied horse. It seems to be at ease, but is alert nonetheless. It's pawing at the ground, kinda chillin'. It has a bridle but no saddle. It's standing beside the ladder and opposite the cube. My significant other is, in fact, brown, strong, and easygoing. Not sure why it has a bridle but no saddle. We haven't been together for very long and he has trouble opening up to people, so it makes sense that the horse is kind of set away from the cube.

The storm: The storm is just basically bad weather on the horizon. The weather is nice and sunny and pleasant right now, but it looks like I can expect rain and wind in a couple of hours. Oddly, I feel like I'm in the midst of a storm right now. Maybe I'm subconsciously expecting a new storm or for this one to get worse.

Flowers: ah! Let's make flowers all around! I don't like this arid desert, now I have the opportunity to make it nice and pretty and full of life. Lots of flowers, pink and yellow and red and orange, as far as the eye can see. I don't have any children LOL but maybe it means I can see myself having them in the future, and not tentatively, but with all my heart and soul and without holding back any part of me. Perhaps I think that my life will be more vibrant when I have children. Interesting test.

My cube was very large yellow metal in color and not transparent. I am running my hands up and down and feeling it's cool smooth surface rest my cheek against it.
My ladder was leaning up against the cube as if I want to climb to the top and look around it's silver and made of metal.
My horse is right next to the ladder and cube with a saddle and bridle on with the reins, Dangling down and he has the choice to stay or leave but we're a team and we ride together. Our relationship is mutual.
The storm is way off in the distance and is nonthreatening may be it'll even passed by.
My flowers grow everywhere in a sea of red and are all around touching the cube.

Cube: Larger than the eye can see, blending in with the desert. It rises before me, about 1 metre away. It is non transparent and makes up about 1/1000 of the desert.

Ladder: The ladder leans beside the cube, it is painted a faded red and is made of wood. I want to climb it.

Horse. Three metres from the cube. Black and magnificent, yet tired and dehydrated. It is not tied or saddled- it is free.

Storm: The storm rises 20 metres above. It is a big storm, that seems to be inching closer with monintention of passing by.

Flowers: A single flower, sticking out from a keyhole in a door on the side of the cube- by thebred ladder. It is red and makes me happy.

Analysis: correct in some aspects, seemingly flawed in others...

CUBE: Mine was a cube of ice laying in the desert sand -- small, solid, clear/semi-transparent, slightly melted.
LADDER: There was a rope ladder hanging from the sky nearby. It rose so high into that it disappeared from sight so I have no idea what it was hanging from (didn't consider).
HORSE: The horse was a small shaggy Shetland pony. Bay coloured. Standing still. No halters, ropes or saddles. Just a wild scruffy little guy.
STORM: The storm was in the distance, but approaching quickly. A huge sandstorm which reached high into the sky and darkened the whole horizon.
FLOWERS: I pictured 2 dandelion flowers. They were hanging out of the side of the pony's mouth. He was eating them. He was oblivious to the approaching storm.
DISTANCES: All of the items (excepting the storm in the distance) were pretty close to one another (within 1 or 2 metres).

A little concerned...
Until a few minutes ago, I thought I was pretty stable! Now I'm afraid I might be a complete nut bag!!!

I thought this was extremely accurate. Even down to the flowers. I drew three pink flowers, all separate across the desert, but all very "pretty". I have 3 children that are all separate, but beautiful people. If the love interest is correct, then my current (just budding) relationship has me pondering. My horse was "lost" in the desert. Not tired, and no saddle. Just lost.
Eh, wish I knew about the storm, I would have placed it far away!! :)

The size of a rubix cube maybe even a bit smaller made out of wood like a building block, maybe 10 feet away from me
Very tall made out of metal about a foot away from the cube. it's not leaning on anything and it goes up forever
It is a brown horse without a saddle or anything. it looks magical
The whole desert has turned into a field of wildflowesrs. there would be no way to count them. Hundreds, maybe thousands
The storm is approaching in the distance and it's very bad. A tsunami
31-05-2016 03:52
Cube--Small (about the size of a rubix cube), could fit in my hand. Steel--not see through at all. Sitting on the ground.

Ladder--Wooden ladder, laying on the ground about a foot beside the cube.

Horse--Brown, wearing nothing. Standing on the other side of the cube, facing me.

Storm--Large thunder heads in the distance coming towards me. You can see the lightning flashing in the clouds. I'm not scared though.

Flowers--I actually didn't really see any flowers. Well, I did, but it was one of my real marigolds in my garden at my house. It wasn't in the desert at all.
30-05-2016 21:18
Cube: cube is very small, transparent, made of glass. Pretty far away but can be seen clearly. Nothing inside it. Ratio between cube and desert is small with the cube resting in the middle and a lot of sand on each side.

Ladder: Ladder isn't leaning on the cube, just 1 or two feet to the right, standing up on its own. The size of the ladder is two or three feet taller than the cube. It's silver and made of steel. My impressions of the ladder were odd and random but it's also mysterious.

Horse: The horse is running towards me in the opposite direction of the cube and the ladder. It's brown and has no saddle or isn't tied at all. Impressions of the horse are calming.

Storm: The storm is coming up behind the cube and the ladder, very grey and very big. Not sure if it's staying or passing by. It's on its way.

Flowers: Thousands of flowers! They are to the right of the horse and to the left of the cube and ladder. Untouched. Pink and purple, but impressions of the flowers makes me feel eerie.
