True confession: I’m a sucker for quizzes, especially IQ and personality tests.
Baba Mail has another personality test. Here’s the description:
We all have different characters but, according to ancient Japanese wisdom, we can all be grouped into several character types. Take the famous ‘cube test’, which has been designed to find out which personality type you are, and see whether we can define you. All you need to do is read the instructions on the photographs. Then imagine what you have read. Finally, answer the questions truthfully. After 10 questions all will be revealed.
According to blogger David Wolfe:
[T]he ‘”cube personality test”…was developed by Japanese psychologists in the year 2000. The quiz was first published in the best-selling book “Kokology” by Japanese author Tadahiko Nagao.
The book is filled with various psychological games designed to help people learn about themselves. The cube personality test is one of the most popular exercises from the book.
What makes it so special?
Well, unlike most other personality quizzes, the cube test forces you to dive into your subconscious to pick up on things you might not even be aware of.
As such, you get a much deeper and more realistic look at who you are.

I got “Confident Leader “.
From the videos about each personality type, as well as David Wolfe‘s description, I gather that:
- The Cube Test has four personality or character types. In alphabetical order, they are:
- Confident leader
- Creative adventurer
- Passionate realist
- Shy sweetheart
- This is the meaning of the various symbols in the Cube Test:
- Cube represents your ego:
- Large cube signifies self confidence; small cube means you’re shy, humble and modest.
- Cube dug into the ground means you are a planner who thinks far into the future.
- Cube sitting on top of the ground means a very businesslike thinker, realistic (“grounded”), and “plans for the future”.
- Floating or moving cube means you are someone who thinks out of the box and avoids convention.
- Ladder signifies your friends:
- Ladder touching the cube means you’re very connected to your friends and rely on them for support. A detached ladder means you prefer to be independent.
- If the ladder is below the cube, your friends see you as an authority figure. If the cube is on the same level, you and your friends are equals. If the ladder is above the cube, this means you see your friends as authority figures in your life.
- If the ladder is short, this means you prefer keeping a small circle of friends. If it’s a long ladder, you’re an extrovert with many friends and acquaintances.
- Horse is a symbol for one’s ideal life partner:
- A strong horse means your ideal partner is hardworking and reliable.
- A beautiful, majestic horse means your ideal partner is likely someone who takes pride in his or her appearance.
- A horse that’s far away from the cube or moving in the opposite direction means you’re distant from your present partner or far from attaining your ideal one.
- Flowers represent your children:
- The number of flowers you imagined represent the number of children you would like to have.
- If the flowers are close to the cube, it means you desire a close relationship with your kids – or already have one. If the flowers are far from the cube, this means you do not value having a close relationship with your kids.
- Thunderstorm represents your fears:
- A distant, far away storm means “you are pleased with your lot and have little anxiety” and that you’re living life with little worry.
- If the storm is close to the cube, you are ready to face conflict and any coming trouble.
- If the storm is directly over the cube, your troubles are overwhelming you right now.
- Cube represents your ego:
Here’s another explanation:
So what do you think?
Is this Cube Test accurate or rubbish? LOL
For me, the flowers as signifying children should be amended to include pets as surrogate children. I imagined a field of flowers surrounding a large cube on the ground, but I have no human children. I do have, at present, two rapidly-maturing kittens and four birds.
