I’ve done a few Word Associations with you over the last few months, and today, as the title of this blog post suggests I’m going to give you another one, but this time all about Christmas! So as usual 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.
So here goes…
2. Christmas tree
5. Santa Claus
6. Christmas day
7. Christmas message
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 expected?
Well here’s my responses to my questions:
10. No work!
Were any of your answers the same as mine? Did any of my answers confuse you? Did any of your own answers confuse you?
I’ve said in previous word association posts that 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 answers! Are you relaxed when you do them or do you find it stressful too?
I still believe that when we respond with the first words that come into our minds, 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?
I chose some words you’d always associate with Christmas but I hope they got you thinking a little more about what Christmas means to you. As you may have gathered from my answers, Christmas for me is all about Jesus, and celebrating his birth.
