In order to measure and observe the behavior of a client, psychologists use tests, as well as other assessment tools, in order to arrive at a diagnosis and a guide treatment if it is necessary.
Psychological testing, as well as assessment is nothing to fear of. It is not like the usual test. It is not something that you have to study for. Rather than that, it is an opportunity for psychologists to determine the best way, in order to help you by trying to understand how to perceive the world around you.
The test we are going to present you below is one such example. Let us know if you think that it is accurate.
– Can you tell which one is NOT a family?
If your choice for the fake family is #1:
If you chose #1 as a fake family, it means that you are not the most family oriented person. As you can tell by the picture, the mother keeps the child away from the father, and the father looks like he does not care at all.
If you have chosen this picture, you might have grown up without a strong father figure, which is why you will tend to help those people in need. When you make positive changes in the lives of other people, you are incredibly happy. Nevertheless, deep inside you, you actually don’t know what real family is.
If your choice for the fake family is #2:
If you chose #2 as a fake family, it means that you are very family oriented person, as well as psychologically sane. If you take a close look to the image, you will notice that the woman on the left side is wearing a mini skirt, neglecting her child. And the father is not better at all actually, as he is also quite unaware of his child. Both of them are putting their needs in first place.
You are probably a very good-natured person that dreams of stable and trusting relationship, which will last a lifetime. That is the reason why you immediately had the ability to spot the fake family. You have the belief that marriage and family are very important thing, and that they should be placed in first place. You also enjoy taking care of other people, and you put a lot of effort in creating a happy environment for the people in your life.
If your choice for the fake family was #3:
If you chose #3 as a fake family, it means that you may have a traumatic psychological illness. This is an image that represents the most loving and happy family. It depicts two parents who are lovingly embracing their child.
You are probably a person that comes from a dysfunctional family. One of your parents may have been overtly abusive due to alcohol, substance abuse, or untreated mental illness, while the other one could have been codependent. In your mind, you have the belief that this is how a real family is supposed to look like and that is why you choose the happiest family as a fake one.
