Secrets of the Cube

I adore doing personality quizzes….Meyers-Briggs, Glamour quizzes, obscure made-up web tests…I’ll take them all. I’m not sure why I take them. Probably because like most people, I think I’ll find something in my “results” that I can use to justify some not so good behavior…

But with all the quizzes I’ve ever taken, there is one that is the absolute coolest. I have so much fun with this “test”, I do it to all my friends when they come over.

One day, browsing through the bookstore, I came across a small square book. Its subtitle is what hooked me: The Ancient Visualization Game That Reveals Your True Self.

TRUE SELF? Hey, I want to know that.  I had to buy it.

The book’s full title is Secrets of the Cube: The Ancient Visualizaion Game That Reveals Your True Self. It’s written by Annie Gottlieb and Slobodan D. Pesic.  

And the best part?  It’s scary how close to home it hits.  I should have posted this for Halloween!

The authors ask you (or you ask your friends) a series of things to visualize.  Then you describe in as much detail what you have visualized in your mind.   Their explanations of what you saw in your vision read a bit like a dream interpretation book, but much more specific.  I’m not going to tell you what they ask you to think about…it would ruin the fun when you have a chance to do this yourself 🙂

Of course it wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t tell you a little bit about what my “cube” told me about myself.  On the up-side, I’m a Visionary Intuitive which means I can make “leaps of association that can lead an Intuitive to a correct conclusion by a non-logical route.”  I think that is a pretty useful thing for a writer!

On the down-side, I can have “a sense of too many possibilities.”  That’s not so good when I’m trying to decide which way I want a scene to go!!!  Or when shopping for shoes!
