Word Association

I’m going to throw some words at you, and I want you to note down the first word that comes into your mind when you read each word.

Here goes…

1. Home

2. Letter

3. Work

4. Love

5. Child

6. Sport

7. Friend

8. Music

9. Shopping

10. Cross

11. Health

12. Book

So how did you get on with that, easy? difficult? surprising?


Here’s my answers to the above:

1. House

2. Bill

3. IT

4. Sandy

5. Small

6. Tennis

7. Trust

8. Christian

9. Mum

10. Jesus

11. Dad

12. Bible

Were any of your answers the same as mine? Did any of your answers surprise you? What about my answers, did any of them surprise you?

Personally I think our answers to these kind of questions, tell us a lot about what’s on our mind, and what’s important to us. So bearing that in mind, review your answers again, does my theory hold true?

I sometimes just pick some really random words and just try this myself just to see what my answers are – I know that sounds really sad, but I often find it quite illuminating to discover what is occupying my subconscious…try it out for yourself.
