Szondi Test: A test that can reveal your deepest hidden self!
Designed in 1935 by a Hungarian Scientist named Leopold Szondi, the test will explore the deepest repressed impulses of a person based on the sympathy or aversion caused by the specific photos of psychopaths. In this test, you will look at the portraits of 8 people and choose the one that scares you the most. Based on the picture you choose we can reveal your deepest hidden self.
1. The Sadist portrait
If you have picked this portrait, it means that you are likely to have repressed some experiences from the first years of life, associated with authoritarianism in your behaviour, a need to dominate and a propensity for bad intentions. Now, you are likely to be a person who is completely harmless and peaceful, always ready to help others. If you work in an office, your superiors find it difficult to handle you since when you don’t want to do something, you create barriers (Example: Getting late to work or showing that you’re in a bad mood). When it comes to defending yourself, you choose passive resistance and defiance which in long term exhaust those who have a problem with you.
2. The Epileptic portrait
When we talk about personality disorders associated with brain disease, damage, and dysfunction, some of the symptoms can be impulsiveness, irritability, the outbursts of anger and aggression. If the gentleman in this picture caused revulsion and fear in you, it is likely that early in your childhood, you repressed some of such feelings and behaviours of anger and impulsiveness to your subconscious. Today, you are most likely a kind and peaceful person who’s meek and friendly. You give the impression of a responsible and self-controlled person. You are stable in your feelings and easily bond with people, ideas, and objects.
3. The Catatonic portrait
Excessive stimulation of imagination and cognition and negativism are just one of the features of mental disorder, catatonia. If this smiling gentleman stirred up some negative feeling in you then you may have repressed some hyperactivity of your mind in the past, which could make you lose touch with reality if it had not been transferred to your subconscious.
Now, you tend to adopt to stereotypical behaviours and do not like innovations and changes. Maybe you’re the type of timid and diffident person, who finds it difficult to adapt to new situations. Your biggest fear is to lose control of yourself. You have a set of rules you follow. You are a bit stiff, often defensive and perhaps inhibited person who never deviates from the ‘behaviour codex’.
4. The Schizophrenic portrait
If this impassive gaze and poker face made you feel uneasy or in simple terms, struck some kind of fear in you, then you are kind of person who probably repressed feelings of indifference towards others and withdrawal from things and events at an early stage of your childhood. Right now, you are probably quite a sociable person. You believe in socializing and communication with others and going out often. The sociability is rather misleading and perhaps hides an isolated person who lives with the feeling or likes the feeling of being alone. Your relationships may seem impersonal and superficial as if they lack any true feeling. Deep down, you may feel that you do not really need others and coexistence with them is not really important.
5. The Hysteric portrait
If you found this strange lady intimidating in any way, it’s maybe because you have repressed an insatiable desire to attract attention and a thirst for approval. Some of the personality traits of hysterical people are, they are superficial, have unstable emotions, are a narcissist and are an exhibitionist. Today, you are seemingly quiet and a shy person who gives an impression of a modest person with intense introversion. You may possess an overpowering desire to charm others. You take your appearance very seriously and always try to be elegant and well dressed, complementing your clothes with accessories that attract others’ attention. You are like to choose a rare/extravagant profession or hobby.
6. The Depressive portrait
Well, everyone knows the main symptoms of depression. The facts that this photo intimidates you may mean that you have some of the symptoms of depression in your personality, namely lack of self-esteem, feelings of inferiority and guilt. You do manage to keep them under control. Right now, you are, most of the time, an outgoing and carefree person. You always show dynamism, confidence, and optimism. You can also be suspicious and morose. You are very likely to shift your depressive tendencies to assuming the roles of being everybody’s psychologist searching for a solution to other people’s problems.
7. The Maniac portrait
Some of the diagnostic features of mania are extroversion, over stimulation, overestimation of self and a waste of money and emotions. If this face disgusts you in any way, it means that inside you, there is a kind of excitement which, if left uncontrolled would transform you into a fanatic mystic. You are now a kind of person who doesn’t want to provoke others with your behaviour and you are also a person who detests noise, extremes, and excesses. Being logical and thrifty, you always show a fully controlled behaviour.
8. The Dissociative Identity Disorder portrait
If this man seems dangerous and strikes fear in you, maybe early in your childhood you have repressed an identity problem or a problem with your gender identity. Today, if the defense mechanism of denial worked, you may have a tendency to confirm your biological sexual orientation. In this case, your behaviors, manners, and appearance emphasize that you are a real man or a real woman. If you’re a man, you’re very “macho” and if you’re a woman then you’re very “feminine”.
