The First Word You See Reveals Aspects Of Your Personality

Who are you based on the first word you see?

It’s an old saying, “We see what we want to see and hear what we want to hear,” but the reality is that we tend to gravitate towards and see things which match our emotional state and way of thinking. When we experience happiness, we often tend to see the happy things around us; we see a Mom with her child and stop for a second just to enjoy the cuteness and purity of the young one playing, or we may notice someone smiling and smile in return. On the other hand, if we aren’t feeling good, we can tend to focus on and pick up on things that are not visually appealing and add to our unhappiness: we may see some smog from a car passing by instead of the beautiful blue sky above, or we may notice some litter on the side of the road, further adding to our experience of unhappiness.

We unconsciously attract to ourselves things that align with our feelings, thinking, personality, traits, goals, and wants. Our perception of our world reflects on who we are as an individual. This is why the practice of self-compassion is so important. When we begin to practice feeling the feeling of love for all of the parts of ourselves, we begin to see loving things outside of ourselves, and attract loving things into our lives.

Look at the picture and remember the first word you see, then read below to find out what it means:

What is the first word you see?

1. Heart

If the word heart caught your eye, then you choose to live your life from your heart your focus is in the right place. You’ve discovered that your innermost part of who you really are comes from deep within the quietude of your heart, and the beauty with which your personality expresses itself makes you a treasure among friends.

You are a deeply loving person inside, and with a bit of openness, people around you are able to feel loved when they are near you. If your mind gets busy with overthinking, stress, or worry, remember to stay in your heart; it is the rock within to build your empire of relaxation and love.

2. Compassion

If compassion is the first word that caught your attention, then you are a truly beautiful person with a calling to help serve the world.

You see the humanness is all people, and you see the life in all living things. You love others as your self, and when someone is struggling or in need, your heart goes out to them. You always try to operate from a place of sweetness within, and if people could always see the real you, they would fall in love.

Others may not always recognize your value, but you are truly a blessing to anyone who is lucky enough to have you as a friend or family member. When you choose to follow your heart, great things happen in your life; both for you and for those around you.

3. Softness

If softness was the first word that appeared to you, then you are a gentle soul with deep potential. Softness correlates with inner freedom, as those who remain soft of heart are blessed with the inner mobility to freely move through their emotions. They do not get stuck in heavy feelings such as hatred and pain, but rather soften within them and allow them to flow out of themselves.

Your deep reservoirs of potential are connected to your ability to listen deeply to your heart and to others. The way you are able to connect with others when you are coming from a place of softness and non-judgment is truly beneficial and healing to them. If you haven’t already read a few books or taken a few classes on how to enhance your already natural talent for listening, now would be a good time to do so. There is a world of opportunity waiting for you.

4. Hope

If hope was the first word that caught your eye, then you are the kind of person who can let go and trust that the future will be okay and will bring you all that you need. You may struggle at times to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but deep within you have an unshakeable knowing that things will turn out okay, and this deserves to be listened to more than whatever tries to bother you in the moment.

Gratitude is your secret superpower. Your ability to envision a bright future only needs the soil for this beautiful idea to grow, and that soil is being thankful for what you have now. Try practicing writing down, saying, or thinking of five things you are grateful for each day. Even after the first week, you may notice that you become happier, and that things start to move forward in positive ways in different areas of your life, that you’ll start saying ten things each day instead! Once you discover how powerful the practice of gratitude and thankfulness is in your life, your wonderful future will turn into a reality.

5. Kindness

Those who practice genuine kindness are truly people to be valued in life. If this was the first word that caught your eye, then you are one of the treasured people who possess this wonderful skill and ability. You offer a hand whenever asked, and often in your life have had times where you helped someone without expecting anything in return. Kind people like you make the world go round, and if there were enough people like you… it would be like heaven on Earth.

You may not always receive the same treatment from others that you give, but that is the essence of kindness, you do not expect anything in return. Yet you will find that those around you will answer you with kindness when you find yourself needing it the most. Stay true to your kind heart, these kind experiences will end up being the greatest things you look back on in your life.

6. Helping

If you first saw the word helping, you are a truly passionate person who has their priorities in the right place: in your heart. You are the friend people come to when they are in need, and your support helps people to change things that they can not accomplish on their own.

It can be a little exhausting to help others as often as you, to say the least, and sometimes when others ask you for help, it can feel challenging. But remember this; these people love you and you are their Angel in their time of need. When they think of a strong person who is there for them and  offers them unconditional love, you are the person that comes to mind. If anyone was to be given an award for integrity and being a truly good friend or family member, it would be you. Balance is key, so remember to take care of yourself too 🙂

7. Giving

Did you see giving first? If so, then generosity is in your nature and charity is your blessing to this world. You are naturally altruistic, and give without hopes of getting anything back. Your life has blessed you in certain areas as you well deserve it, but getting these blessings back is not what motivates you. You desire to see the best for everyone, we are all here to help each other.

You have a strong vision for how kind the world should be, and while the world is not perfect, you never stop giving your time, energy and money towards making it a better place. You are able to see things in a different light from others, and being able to motivate and show them why we need to contribute to others is one of your deep underlying strengths. Your potential for leadership is incredible, as you are not afraid to stand up for the causes you believe in. Stay true to the love in your heart, and share this love with others, and people will naturally follow you.

8. Laughter

If laughter was the first word you saw, then you know that one of the greatest joys of life is laughing till your belly hurts with friends and family. ‘Life is better when you’re laughing,’ and your witty sense of humor has been known to cause a few outbursts of amusement and joy. Others tend to feel comfortable around your warm and gentle energy.

You’re able to build intimacy quite easily with others and help them to feel good and to let their guard down. You don’t take yourself too seriously, and you accept yourself; flaws, beauty and all. You’re Flawsome; a person who accepts their flaws and knows they’re awesome regardless. Being able to brighten the day of someone who isn’t feeling the best is a specialty reserved for you. Go out of your way every now and then to cheer up your friends, family or even a random stranger, and life is sure to bless you with even more wonderful things to be happy about.
