his opening line (sorry fella, but it was) is my favorite new party/bored at work game. the fella told me that he read about this game in a psychology book and that it was a fairly accurate indicator about a person's personality. i've been inflicting it on my friends ever since, because if stranger in a bar says so, then it must be true!
remember, there is no right or wrong answer. say the first thing you imagine and get ready to have your soul exposed.
first picture a desert... got it?
now picture a cube in the desert. how big is the cube and what is it made of?
okay, now imagine a ladder... where is it in relation to the cube and what's it made of?
lastly picture a horse. what does it look like, what's it doing, and again, where is it in relation to the cube.
the cube is supposed to represent you. the size of it represents your ego. what it's made of is up to you to interpret. the ladder represents your friends and family. what it's made of and location is up for your interpretation. the horse represents your relationship. again, interpret at will.
how insightful was yours? mine was pretty cool. be warned, this game can get a little awkward. case in point, a friend at work wouldn't stop going on about how boring and ordinary the horse was.
"well, what's the horse doing?" i probed.
"nothing," he responded with a shrug. "it's just standing there."
after i told him what it all meant, we giggled about it for the rest of the night. for the record his horse is quite lovely and exciting. if i haven't played with you already, i'd love to read your answers in the comments section.
have a great thanksgiving all. eat some extra stuffing for me!
