Word Association #3

Just for a change today, 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. Microsoft

2. Television

3. Documentation

4. Meeting

5. Nationality

6. Drink

7. Church

8. Supermarket

9. Pet

10. Illness

11. Cartoon character

12. Fitness

So how did you get on with those words? Did you find it Difficult? Did your answers surprise you or were they just as you suspected?

Well here’s my responses to my Word Association questions:

1. Computing

2. HD

3. Organised

4. Bot on a Friday afternoon please – I suspect my answer may have something to do with my meeting yesterday afternoon!

5. Scottish

6. Water – what I’m drinking just now!

7. Salvation Army

8. Shopping

9. Tigger the name of my cat!

10. Tough times

11. Tigger

12. Slow process

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

Do you like these Word Association games? I find I get a bit stressed when I’m doing them as I put a lot of pressure on myself not to over think my answer!

I still agree with what I’ve said in previous Word Association posts, that I think when we truly do respond with the first words that come into our mind, our answers tell us a lot about what’s on our emotional state, and what’s important to us at that time.

Bearing all this in mind, review your answers, does my theory hold true?

As I said before when I posted my first Word Association blog post, 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 illuminating to discover what is occupying my subconscious…I’d urge you to try it out for yourself.
