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.

Cube: Big enough to fit an apartment, about a half mile away, keeps shimmering between blue, black, silver, and transparent. It looks as though there is a woman, by herself washing dishes but I can hardly tell, and just came up with a random ratio: 1 Desert = 22 Million Cubes.

Ladder: Taller than the cube by a foot, leaning against the right side of it, appears to be an old, brown, wooden work ladder.

Horse: About a few hundred fee away from the cube, light brown with white glistening mane and a small saddle, I saw a woman in a silver dress riding it towards the cube.

Storm: Behind the cube (from my point of view), about 15 minutes quite dark, and can't see an end to any side (except of course the front of it, heading towards the cube.

Rose: 1 Seemingly perfect perfect red rose, it keeps glitching between me and the cube along the same imaginary linear line. Wanted to take it, put in in a small glass vase, and keep it alive as long as possible.

Some information before attempting to interpret this: I am a male, early 20's, not married (would very much like to be, to the right woman of course), no children (and in no hurry to have them), no significant other, I enjoy all colors, but blue, black, and silver are often not my top 3 (of course it changes based upon my mood, and what the color is being applied to but they aren't the ones I repeatedly go back to the most), and I only think I let people see though me when I get to my absolute most desperate, unless it's seemingly trivial things.

I'm not sure what to think about my results. I tend to think whoever created this, thought that every item meant the same thing to every person, which is clearly not the case with some of the items. More common things like a storm being an obstacle are, more often than not, going to be the case with most people, but still some people like storms, and don't necessarily dislike them because they have a different interpretation in their mind. A common problem with these tests is they do not address possible extra information; like in my case, the woman riding the horse, the woman inside the cube, or the constant transportation of the flower. These kinds of tests are very often inaccurate, misinterpreted, improperly formulated, ambiguous, one size fits all kinds of things, which is the problem when humans and their minds are so much more complex than anything that can be written down into a static formula, or process as simply interpreted as this one, and most others out there. You need a test that account for all possibilities if you wish for it work properly for everyone who takes it. Now granted, that is not to say that this won't be accurate for some people, but more often than not, tests like these are not going to give entirely accurate results, or accurate results period for the entirety or vast majority of its participants.

Cube: It's a black cube and its pretty big, about 8ft tall. It's black and it's definitely not transparent. I don't really know what it's made of, some kind of heavy metal. The ratio would be about 1/1000000. The desert is huge and seems endless. there are a couple of cacti and dead bushes here and there, but that's about it. There is a big boulder a few feet from the cube.

Ladder: The ladder is leaning against the boulder not far from the cube. It is brown and made of wood.

Horse: My horse is brown and free. It's definitely wild since it just came out of nowhere and walked up right next to me to look at the cube. It seems trustworthy, but I would wait for it to come to me instead of coming up to it so I just leave it alone.

Storm: You can see the storm to my left. It's huge and the clouds are as black as night. It's coming my way quickly, but I don't panic because I know there's no escaping it.

Flower: There is just one flower and it's beautiful. I imagined it a bright red daisy with a bright green stem and two leaves. It's close to me, but it's not that close to the cube. The flower makes me feel happy and gives me a little bit of hope

Cube: small, about knee height. A few metres away from me. Red and completely opague, but slightly reflective. Looks very out of place and artificial, compared to the rest of the desert. (I basically don't think much of myself and I feel like I don't fit in, like I don't belong here, in this situation, this body, this world).

Ladder: silver, metal ladder. Very plain, very typical, lying on the ground about a metre away from the cube. (I don't really have many friends, especially not close ones who I can rely on. I have my girlfriend who is also my best friend, but that's about it. Maybe I don't feel supported, like I'm on my own in the world even though there are people all around).

Horse: close enough to see clearly, black, elegant horse, looks kinda lonely, lost. It's not got a saddle, nor is it tied up. I looks as if it's wild. (I think this means that I am close to my girlfriend but maybe there's some emotional blockage, and I don't allow people to get too close because I'm too scared of losing them).

Storm: a huge, black cloud immediately above the cube, not going anywhere. Lots of lighting, striking the cube. (Basically, everything bad seems to happen to me, but it has an effect on everyone around me too).

Flowers: about 10 all spaced out, wilting and faded. Not much colour in them. (I do not have children, and do not intend to have children for a long time so idk what that means, however I did find it hard to imagine the flowers - maybe that's why).

Cube: Small enough to fit in my hand. Transparent clear with a warm yellow glow inside. It's floating eyelevel off the ground.

Ladder: It's laying on the ground, left to the cube. (Not sure what that means)

Horse: It's a brown horse with a red tent. It's strong and sturdy. It has nothing attached to it. It's just standing there looking at me on the right side of the cube.

Storm: It's a very large storm that covers the whole desert but it's off in the distance, only close enough to see it and feel the wind. It's just dust everywhere..

Flower: It's a red tulip. It had finally finished blooming and is directly under the orb. Completing everything.

Everything's is about 2 feet away from me. Everything just beautiful yet scary..

I was holding a bunch of flowers outstretched and tied with string. Is there any significance to the flowers being in a bunch?

I pictured the cube as a tinted glass rest stop/oasis, where travelers in the desert can stop and rest, also get a cup of water. It has a loft in the interior, which the wooden ladder leads to. The brown horse is unsaddled and just resting by the doorway awaiting his traveler. The storm is a ranging thunder storm complete with rain which is collected and filtered by the cube for the travelers to drink. The flowers look like sea heather and gathered in a bundle left on a table inside the cube.

Not sure if I thought of these things in the way I was suppose to, but this is what I pictured.

My fiance made me do this over the phone.

The cube was small light blue, solid, in a large sandy desert expanding beyond the horizon.
No Ladder.
The horse was brown with a black mane, and standing in the distance. Abandoned by its rider, (forgotten but content maybe even happy).
Between the cube and horse is a small oasis with a small patch of grass and a handful full of Lilly looking flowers.
And a large sand storm in the background.

I wasn't expecting the ladder to be my friends! I pictured it all awful rope-and-wood like the helicopter ones.. completely disposable and useless.. but i don't feel that way about people!! It was interesting overall.

I understood most of it. It was awesome, but I wasn't heart felt.
