All tests - Relational psychology - The forest

Take a walk in the forest and learn something more about yourself.

 

1. Forest

Imagine that you are walking in a forest.

1. What do you see, and how does everything make you feel?
2.
What kind of trees are there?
3. Is it bright or dark?

 

2. Path

Now, describe the path in relation to the forest.

1. Is the path clearly visible?
2. Is there any other path?
3. Is the path wide or narrow?
4. Is the path well-traveled or abandoned?
5. Is the path easily navigated or are there obstructions?

 

3. Bear

As you continue walking through the forest, you see a bear.

1: Describe the bear.

2: What is the bear doing? Choose the closest option.

Analysis

1. Forest

The forest represents how you felt about the world, as you were growing up. If you see squirrels playing then you felt that the world was a safe place.

The trees and the light in the forest represent the interaction that you had with adults as you were growing up, and the impact that this interaction had on you.

The taller the trees, the more influence adults had on your life.

The lighting represents the authority adults had  over you. The brighter the forest, the more you felt you had the freedom to do as you wanted and the happier you must have felt growing up. Note: being given a lot of freedom does not imply that you were in any way neglected.

The darker the forest, the more restrictions you felt were placed on you, and the more likely you were to find yourself in stressful situations.

 

2.Path

Adolescence is represented by the path through the forest.

The path's visibility indicates how prepared you were to handle situations during adolescence. The more visible the path, the more successful you were at anticipating changes, and facing challenges. A less visible path means you were less aware of what to expect and therefore some events may have left you feeling perplexed and bewildered.

Multiple paths are important choices that had to be made. If you saw many paths, you either saw many opportunities for yourself, or you were very confused about what choices to make.

The width of the path indicates room for emotional growth. The wider the path the more opportunities existed for emotional growth.

Meeting fellow travelers along the way, or a tidy and well maintained path, are indications of a frequently used path. A path that is not so frequently used, may have weeds and be scattered with litter. The more traveled the path, the less evidence there is of feeling isolated from your friends and family. Note: belonging to a small family or having a small circle of friends does not necessarily mean that you did not receive enough support.

Obstructions are the way that we perceive problems in adolescence. The more rocks, weeds and logs we see along the path, the more we feel that certain circumstances prevented us from accomplishing our goals.

 

3. Bear

1. The bear is symbolic of problems and how you deal with them. The question gave you the chance to see a potentially dangerous situation. If you saw a tame, harmless bear or a young playful bear, or even a teddy, then your life is stress free and when faced with a problem you see a challenge or opportunity instead.

If you saw a menacing bear then you are more likely to see problems rather than creative challenges or opportunities. People under routine stress will see large, dangerous bears.

 

2. If the bear has not seen you, or has seen you but is doing cute 'bear type' things, then you are not under everyday stress and you do not have many real problems. When presented with a problem you prefer to focus on the solution.

If the bear has seen you but is ignoring you, then although you may be worried or anxious about something, you are not under unhealthy levels of stress.

If the bear is looking threatening or is coming right at you, you need a holiday! You are likely to be under high levels of stress.

 

3. How you continue your journey represents how you are affected by stress, how you deal with challenges, and also how you make decisions.

If you walk up to the bear, you face your problems head on, and you take a direct and pragmatic approach to decision making

If you avoid the bear you may think your problems are insurmountable, and you prefer a more indirect, non-confrontational approach to decision making.

If you ignore the bear, you pay little attention to setbacks and you are not affected by stress.

If you were considering adoption, then you have a healthy approach towards life and everyday challenges.

 

6. Key

The key represents work related interests. The key's appearance reveals how other people see your career, and the key's function reveals your career goals.

1. Appearance (how other people see your career)

The more ornamental the key, the more you prefer a career that is remarkable, distinctive or unique.

Outdated or antiquated keys show you feel more comfortable in a conventional or long established career.

2. Function (career goals)

If the key opens everyday things such as cars and school lockers then your expectations about your career in terms of wealth, joy and accomplishments are average.

Keys to royal residences, castles, fortresses or mansions reveal a desire for power.

If the key is able to unlock and open a number of things then you are probably undecided and unsure about which career path to follow.

Keys to items or places along the way, reveal a desire to choose a career that will solve a challenge.

Keys that allow access to valuable things such as a treasure box, indicate a desire to accumulate wealth.

Keys to personal belongings such as diaries or lockets indicate that a fulfilling career is one which addresses other people's needs.

If the key is of little use or value, you are rather pessimistic about finding a rewarding and fulfilling career.

A magical key or a  key to a magical world may reveal excessively optimistic expectations from a career.

If you are unsure as to what the key may open, you have not yet defined your career goals.

The key locked a door behind me

Tall trees. The forest isn't completely dark, but it isn't light outside either. A wide, open path that is well maintained and tidy. There are no obstructions. I am scared of the bear at first because it sees me, but then I notice that he is harmless and cute. I continue walking by him while looking at him, and then continue on my way. The key is old and antique-looking.. it opens a diary or a little treasure box.

Very tall pine trees, not much room to move around and very, very dark. The path was barely visible and quite narrow rarely used, there was only one path. The bear was quite large and menacing, the key I found was silver and old fashioned. It open the door of the grand hall of a castle.

That's what I had, except the key was a rusty brown color and unlocked a diary of someone who lived a long time ago.

Dark forest but dappled with light. Mostly pine but some other. Trees wide spaced. Not really any path, but could move easily. Deserted, but bear noticed me and walked off. Key was partly buried under pine needles. Old and gold. Opened an old door to a mysterious land...

My forest was dark and the path wasn't wide but it wasn't hard to find. only one path with logs and ferns. Large pin trees everywhere. black bear clawing at a tree tried to find another way around. found an old fashioned key uniquely made and it opened a door to a castle with a big treasure chest in the room. hmm...

Dark, dense forest (kind of like a jungle but not tropical)
Narrow, well traveled dirt path to a village (I see tribal people from the village along the path collecting berries)
Baby sun bear that's playing in the trees far away from me.
I watch it for a little bit then keep walking.
The key a vintage, well worn, and pretty looking.
The key unlocks a tiny bungalow along the path

Forest in daytime, woodsy trees around me, pretty typical. The path is diagonal in front of me a little ways off, thin but clearly marked. The bear hasn't noticed me yet. I avoid it by passing by unseen. The key is old-fashioned, black but with green covering it, mold? or like pennies that turn green. I am unsure of what it could open, but then I know that it should open an old wooden cabinet in a historic manor.

Forest: Tall, dark trees. Dark forest, but not completely dark. A little light. I didn't see many animals along the way.
Path: Wide, straight path. Clearly visible. There are no other people on the path.
Bear: The bear saw me, but continued doing whatever he was doing. I tried to avoid him.
Key: It was an old-fashioned key. It opened a treasure chest.

Path: Almost invisible, no other paths, narrow, abandoned, lots of obstructions
Bear: Seen me & looks threatening, I ignore it and walk on

I'm walking through the forest. I am by a lake that has few people. I am walking along and the bear is walking right toward me but is not defensive, instead we walk together and give each other company not really paying attention to each other. There's little circle light spots coming out from the trees, it is warm out with a cool breeze it is amazing.

The bear got stuck in the trees. Of course she isn't a threat.
My key is meant to open an ancient chest, preferably an empty one that I can keep my own stuff in.
