Word Association #4

It’s Saturday again, so I’d like to give you another word association challenge today. So as before, 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. Chocolate

2. Bible

3. Interview

4. Diet

5. Scotland

6. Sunday school

7. Tennis

8. Baby

9. Water

10. Hairdresser

11. Cinema

12. Car

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

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

1. Mmmmmmm

2. Study

3. Nightmare

4. Weight-loss

5. The independence debate

6. Childhood

7. Rafael Nadal

8. Blessings

9. Thirsty

10. Appointment

11. It’s been a while

12. Garage

Were any of your answers the same as mine? Did any of my answers confuse you? Did any of your own answers confuse you?

Do you like these Word Association games? As I’ve said in my previous word association posts, 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 think when we truly do respond with the first words that come into our mind, our answers tell us a lot about our emotional state, and what’s important to us at that particular point in time.

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

As I said before, 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.
