Don't look at other responses until you've answered each of the following questions thoroughly. If you’d like, you can also draw a picture to go along with your description. I promise you will learn a few things about yourself after I reveal the key to decode your answers!
1.) Start by picturing a desert in your mind's eye.
Imagine a desert landscape with a horizon line separating sand from sky.
(For this, and all the following questions, there are no specific rules; no right or wrong answers. You are perfectly free to describe the cube that you see in your mind.)
2.) In this desert there is a cube.
What does the cube look like? How big is it? What's it made of (if you can tell)? What color is it? What kind of texture does it have? Is it above, below, or bisecting the horizon? Is it sitting on the sand, or in some other position? How close or far is it from you?
Before you go on, write down 5 adjectives describing your cube - the mood it conveys as well as its physical qualities.
3.) In this desert there is also a ladder.
Where is it located in relation to the cube? What is it made of? What position is it in? Does it have many rungs? A few rungs? Approximately how many rungs?
4.) In this desert there now appears... a horse.
What kind of horse? What color? Where is the horse? Does it have on a saddle or bridle? And if so, what kind? Also be sure to imagine how it relates to the cube and the ladder. And since this is a living object, what action might it be doing right now?
5.) Now, somewhere in the desert there is a storm.
What kind of storm is this? Where do you see it? Does it affect the cube, the ladder, the horse, or not? If so, how?
6.) And, finally, in this desert there are flowers.
Where are they in relation to the cube, the ladder, the horse, the storm? What kind are they? Are they many, or a few? What color? Scattered or clustered?
You've successfully created an unique image in your mind's eye that only you could come up with. Every element is individual to you; this is a purely subjective exercise. There are no right or wrong answers. After all, this is your imagination, and only you are capable of describing what occurs inside.
Look one more time at the scene you've created. Make sure that you've left nothing out; that everything is described in as much detail as you are capable of.
What did you see?
I had this INTJ guy I dated describe to me what his picture would look like, and out of all the ways that we could have envisioned the cube and ladder, ours turned out to be the same. Anyway, I am looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with!
