This Personality Test Reveals What You Secretly Want In Love And Relationships

Taking a personality test is a quick and effective way to find out hidden truths about yourself. And one of the most challenging things for people in any stage of being in love is figuring out what's really most important to you, and what you most deeply and secretly want to experience in your relationships.

When you meet someone you're attracted to and they happen to be attracted to you too, taking a breather to assess whether or not being with this person gives you want and need sometimes feels like it would suck all of the romance right out of your currently enjoyable dynamic. Heck, this can even be the case when you aren't seeing someone exclusively and are still living in singles' life of casual dating or if you've been in a stable relationship with someone for a good long time.

You know you want to be "happy" in a relationship, but you may not always know what that looks like for you, let alone what it could possibly mean. But this personality test can give you the answer.

And, frankly, all of that can sometimes get a little overwhelming, so if you'd rather not wade through self-help book after self-help book, or at least, not right now, we've got another solution for you.

Look at the image below and make a note of what you see first. Then, scroll down and find out what the this personality test reveals about what's secretly most important to you in love and relationships.

If you saw...

1. The man's face

If you saw the man's face first when you looked at the picture above, you are a big picture thinker — literally.

You can't help but stop yourself from planning everything, from what you're going to eat for every meal the next day down to where the children you haven't even had yet should to go to college. It's just how you're wired.

What you secretly want most out of a relationship is stability and control.

You feel your best when you are guiding others and steering the ship of your lives. A strong partner who is willing to let you take the helm is exactly what you need, particularly when they trust you enough to kick back and not make any waves. 

2. The sheep

If you saw the sheep when you first looked at the picture, you're a sensitive, romantic person who is easily hurt.

You have a proverbial mountain of love to give, but you're wary of doing just that out of fear that you will be rejected, or worse still, let down in every possible way. You know being this way isn't easy, but you can't help it. Your heart drives you.

What you want out of a relationship is to be constantly swept off your feet.

You want to feel 100 percent adored at all times. You want a life of being carried over the threshold daily and surprised with flowers nightly. You want a partner who will show up at your office and serenade you with song.

And, what's more, you want someone who totally means it all. You want a life in which romance comes naturally and the love behind it is unquestionably sincere.

3. The boy at the tree

If you saw the boy at the tree when you first looked at the picture above, you're a hopeful realist.

You know better than to assume every first date you go on is going to be your last first date, but you can't help thinking about how his last name sounds with your first name. You've been through the mill of dating, but you still believe in love. You just aren't as quick to fall in love as you were when you first started this crazy ride.

What you want out of a relationship is open communication and trust.

You don't need flowers and you don't need grandiose but empty gestures. You need someone who understands that a relationship only works when the people in it put in the time and effort.

For you, a partner who can constructively speak their mind is absolutely key. To you, talking about your feelings, both good and bad, is the only way to achieve real and lasting intimacy.

4. The huts

If you saw the huts when you first looked at the picture above, you're the kind of person who is scared of a real relationship.

You like the idea of having a partner in theory, but the reality of sharing your life with someone scares the pants off of you. You've run away from good relationships before, and you may have even ghosted the odd partner here and there. You don't want to be alone forever, but the idea of being in a "real" relationship is daunting.

What you want out of a relationship is friendship and physical intimacy without labels.

Other people can call it whatever they want, but what really matters to you at the end of the day is that your partner is a friend, just a friend with whom you have sex. They understand that you need to move a little bit more slowly, and they know you thrive when relationships aren't defined to a perfect T.

Let everyone else waste away defining their relationships. You could go without that noise forever!

    What do the world’s most successful people do when it’s time to retire?

    When Thomas Schreier Jr. graduated from the University of Notre Dame more than three decades ago, he never envisioned that in his late 50s he'd be teaching a class there called Designing an Inspired Life and regularly walking the South Bend, Ind., campus as the founding director of the university's Inspired Leadership Initiative. The initiative, now in its second year, consists of 15 accomplished individuals who have wrapped up two or three decades in successful careers and are eager to devote an academic year to studies at Notre Dame. Notre Dame's joins similar programs at prominent institutions pioneering this concept: the Stanford Distinguished Careers Institute, operated in partnership with the Stanford Center on Longevity, and Harvard's Advanced Leadership Initiative, a yearlong program for corporate executives and professionals interested in applying their skills to social problems.

    Tesla ordered by German court to stop cutting down trees for Gigafactory

    A German court on Sunday ordered Tesla Inc to stop clearing forest land near the capital Berlin to build its first European car and battery factory, a victory for local environmental activists. The U.S. electric carmaker announced plans last November to build a Gigafactory in Gruenheide in the eastern state of Brandenburg. The court ruling, by the higher administrative court of the states of Berlin and Brandenburg, comes after the state environmental office gave a green light to clear 92 hectares of forest for the plant.

    Here’s how one ‘black swan’ investor is protecting his $5 billion fund against a market crash that ‘won’t be pretty’

    “Really explosive downside protection is really the only risk mitigation that's able to move the needle for people, because it's the only risk mitigation that doesn't cost you as you are waiting for it to happen,” Spitznagel said. In other words, his fund provides crash insurance so his clients can take on more “systemic risk” with their other investments. Spitznagel, a former trader, is a protégé of Nassim Nicholas Taleb, the author of the 2007 bestseller, “The Black Swan,” which is a metaphor used to describe unpredictable, highly disruptive events — the kind that could blow up markets.

    The potential restriction on the engine sales - possibly along with limits on other components for Chinese commercial aircraft such as flight control systems made by Honeywell International Inc - is the latest move in the battle between the world's two largest economies over trade and technology. The issue is expected to come up at an interagency meeting about how strictly to limit exports of U.S. technology to China on Thursday and at another meeting with members of President Donald Trump's Cabinet set for Feb. 28, sources said. The White House and the U.S. Commerce Department, which issues licenses for such exports, declined to comment, as did a GE spokeswoman.

    OPEC Underestimates China Virus

    A comparison of the latest forecasts from the world's three big oil agencies — the International Energy Agency, the U.S. Energy Information Administration and the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries — highlights the huge uncertainty that exists over the virus's repercussions for oil demand. As may be expected for a body representing oil producers, OPEC sees the impact as minimal, having just cut its first-quarter forecast for global oil demand by only 400,000 barrels a day. The IEA's revision is three times as big, and if its forecast bears out, it's deep enough to tip the world into its first year-on-year drop in demand in more than a decade.

    Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is reportedly paying $165 million for a palatial Beverly Hills mansion and, according to SEC filings, for that price the Amazon  founder could have footed the 2019 federal tax bill his company is planning to pay this year, and still have $3 million left over.

    Afraid of sky-high stock valuations? Consider this ‘deep value’ strategy

    There's no shortage of arguments that the U.S. stock market, whose main benchmark indexes are at record highs, is overvalued. If your investment portfolio is concentrated in an index fund, you might feel you are properly diversified, but there's a good chance your risk is concentrated among a short list of companies. Jim Roumell, the founder of Roumell Asset Management of Chevy Chase, Md., and manager of the Roumell Opportunistic Value Fund (RAMSX) offers an investment strategy that is truly different: A balanced fund that takes concentrated positions in micro-cap companies that he argues are grossly undervalued.

    U.S. household debt hits record high of $14.15 trillion

    Total U.S. household debt reached a record $14.15 trillion at the end of the year after increasing by $193 billion, or 1.4%, in the fourth quarter of 2019, according to the Fed's Quarterly Report on Household Debt and Credit. The report, based on “a nationally representative sample of individual- and household-level debt and credit records drawn from anonymized Equifax credit data,” noted that total household debt is now nominally $1.5 trillion higher than the pre-recession peak of $12.68 trillion in the third quarter of 2008. The rise in household debt, led by mortgage balances, marked the 22nd consecutive quarterly increase.
