The cube

The cube

Embark on a journey of self-discovery with The Cube Quiz, a unique psychological exercise set in a metaphorical desert. This quiz invites you to visualize a cube and other elements, focusing not just on their appearance but on the feelings they evoke. Each element in this scenario symbolizes different aspects of your life, from your self-perception and relationships to your challenges and family. Your descriptions and the emotions attached to them offer profound insights into your inner world. This quiz provides a creative way to understand more about your personality, relationships, and the obstacles you perceive in life. Uncover the deeper meanings behind your imaginative landscape and gain a better understanding of yourself.

In a vast, sprawling desert, the sun casts long shadows on the sand. You stand alone, feeling the gentle caress of the breeze, with the endless sky above and the earth stretching out in all directions. Amidst this serene solitude, your eyes catch a glimpse of something distinct in the landscape. There, a cube rests, its presence a quiet enigma in this expansive wilderness. Intrigued, you approach, your curiosity piqued by its sudden appearance in this tranquil world.

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.

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

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.

desert: dry cracked soil that extends for miles in every direction around me; im looking to the west; the siloettes of mountains in the distance.

cube: about 10 feet in front of me; about 8 -10 inches wide; made of blue glowing glass; an orb of white light in the middle

ladder: made dark wood; sturdy looking; about 2 feet to the left of the cube; goes on indefinetly into the sky

horse: about 20-25 feet behind the cube and ladder; very dark bay color, with a black mane and tail, and white markings on its face and legs; it is standing still, looking at the cube and ladder; it has a bit and bridal, and saddle on.

storm: large terrible thunderstorm moving towards me; lots of lightning/wind/rain

flowers: a single white daisy sprouted out of the ground about 2 feet to the right of the cube; three more white daisies back next to the horse


Inaccurate almost to the letter.


Cube: very big, light blue and is transparent, small compared to the desert

Ladder: cornflower blue, metal, cube is supporting ladder and is close to the cube.

Horse: dark brown, saddle and rope, but the rope isnt tied to anything and its just hanging

Storm: pretty big and severely close

Flowers: surrounding the cube and very close to the cube, purple, red, and yellow and make me feel hopeful



Small, fits in one palm. I'm holding it. Reddish-orange and slightly glowing, made of smooth glass with sharp edges. Slightly translucent, and filled with red sand. The desert is vast and unending and I feel insignificant.


Laying down a couple dozen steps away. Made of sandalwood with a fine grain. Feels distant and ordinary.

Horse: Standing tall over the ladder. All black with white socks and stomach. Imposing and terrifying, I wouldn't try to ride it. Looks wild and crazy. (more of me being scared of love than scared of an s/o dw)

Storm: In the distance, but coming fast. Huge storm. Passing, but a direct hit. The horse is completely unaffected but the ladder is torn to pieces.

Flower: 1 flower uncovered by the storm. It's right in front of me, between my knees. It's blue and wonderfully cold to the touch, icy. I'm scared to touch it, but being near it is a strange combination of exhilaration and calming.


So... apparently I'm a jet black cube made of a hard, impenetrable substance.

AND my non-existent lover is a black horse that is daunting, yet somehow makes me feel safe.

Danggggg! ????
