The Cube (Psychology Test)

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 house?
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?

  1. 1. – Approx. 3″ x 3″
    – Color is black outlines, with clear or white surfaces. The surfaces are shaded to give a three dimensional feel.
    – I drew it. It’s about 1 ft. 6 in. away.
    – I don’t think it is transparent because you can’t see the back to sides or bottom.
    – I don’t see a desert.
    2. – Ladder is black and made of plastic, and it is leaning on the cube.
    – I get the impression of non-balance.
    – There is a greater distance at the bottom. About a foot. It leans against the top.
    3. – The horse is located on top of the cube.
    – The horse is white with a black tail and mane.
    – The horse looks mad, it’s not tied, and there is a saddle.
    4. – It’s near by, but hasn’t quite reached the cube.
    – I would say it’s a medium sized storm.
    – Passing by.
    5. – There are two flowers.
    – Under a cactus between the cube and the storm.
    – The flowers are black.
    – They need rain.

  2. 1. my cube is about one foot all around. its blue.. a little darker than sky blue but not too dark. its one of my favorite colors. its right in front of me, within one foot away. its not transparent, cannot see if anything is inside. a desert is vast, open space for miles so im not sure what the ratio is of one foot to many many miles.
    2. no the ladder is not leaning on the cube. its a brown wooden ladder. its an old ladder but still sturdy and useful. the ladder is right beside the cube.
    3. the horse is standing over the cube. the horse is gray with white feet and star on his forehead. its a fiesty horse but loveable. its not tied and no saddle
    4. the storm is far from the cube. its a quick small storm but does lots of damage.
    5. 6 flowers opposite the storm.. far away from it, beside the ladder. the flowers are all different colors, purple, yellow, red. they smell nice and are pretty
