The Animal You Spot In This Photo Reveals Your Dominant Personality.

What exactly is personality? We learn about the word at a very early age, and we use it a lot in everyday conversation, but the topic is actually complex. Scientists, specifically psychologists, have spent a long time trying to figure what a personality exactly is and how each person develops theirs. One way to figure this out is by taking a personality test.

Someone's personality is a combination of characteristics and qualities that, when put together, form a person's character. Psychology calls these traits. If someone asked you to list your personality traits, you'd most likely end up with a pretty long list. But some experts believe that every person has a 'primary trait' - a main characteristic that defines your general behavior and attitude. There are several tests, like the following picture, that are used to pinpoint a person's primary trait.

This picture is known formally as a projective test - an exam which present situations, images, or words to someone in order to analyze their response. It's used to determine certain aspects of their personality that they express unconsciously. This is a pretty simple one: a group of animal images stacked together. It is believed that the first animal you see is an expression of your primary personality trait. How about we find out what each one means?

It's believed that if someone sees the wolf image first they're typically a fearless and fierce person. They're ready for anything life throws at them and they're experts at handling tough situations. Even though they like the company of others, they tend to be a bit lonely on the inside.

But some people might see the bright insect first....

Praying Mantis

If you saw this brightly colored praying mantis first, it means that you have a perceptive and patient personality. Your inner voice is powerful and it gives you a sense of purpose. Your decisions are typically based on a gut feeling, but your instincts seem to always be right because you rarely make poor decisions.

Or maybe you saw the elegant horse....

Stallion

For people that saw the stallion first, you may have an ambitious personality. These people are free-thinking, honest, and driven. They're strongly motivated to succeed no matter what. They're humble and hardworking, with strong morals and the will to fight for them. They always aim for their voice to be heard and they're self-confident, but not cocky.

But maybe you saw the beautiful butterfly...
