What Did You See First? Your Answer Can Reveal a Lot About You With Almost 100% Accuracy…

01) What Did You See First? Your Answer Can Reveal a Lot About You With Almost 100% Accuracy

“According to Hermann Rorschach, the creator of a famous test with inkblots, the things that a person sees in the picture are determined by their character and personality. Abstract pictures can point out the things taking place in people’s minds, as well as reveal some hidden features of their personality. You’ll learn something new and interesting about yourself with our test. All you need to do is to look at the images and say what you saw first.

Just like you, we at Bright Side love funny tests a lot. The only thing you should keep in mind is that it’s a game, which means you shouldn’t take the results too seriously. Anyway, we hope that it will surprise you in a nice way.”


Results: I’ve concealed what I saw, in order to not influence anyone else who decides to do this.

XXX: you always take things the way they are and judge them by their true value. You don’t try to change or decipher things around you or understand their hidden meaning.

I think that’s partially right…but it’s difficult to say. It both affirms and contradicts me…

…I’m complicated, you know?

XXX: you can be a little careless and inattentive to details by nature. Moreover, you are a practical person who doesn’t like to take risks.

Hmmm…I am practical, yes.

XXX: you are the one who’d rather take a couple of steps back in order to see the whole picture. You always gather information and study a situation thoroughly before getting close to a problem and starting to solve it.

Yes…Now this one is good…I’d say it fits me the best, so far.

XXX: you are an extremely creative person who sees the world as a place full of new openings and achievements. Intuition, wisdom, happiness, and satisfaction of your tireless curiosity are the most important things in life for you. You have perfect taste and a sensitive perception of art, poetry, music, and literature.

The “perfect taste” part might be pushing it…

…otherwise, I think this one is pretty spot on.

XXX: you are the one who gets frightened easily. You are a little absent-minded and you don’t like to do things when you don’t know what the result will be. Occasionally you might even have conflicts with yourself.

I am absent minded a lot more, as I age…

…I do not frighten easily, though.

I do have conflicts with myself, yes.

01) You Can’t Do That On Television: The Darkest Kids Show EVER?


“You Can’t Do That on Television ran on Nickelodeon throughout the 1980s, and in many ways defined kids television for an entire generation. But did you ever notice how insanely dark and twisted the show actually was? Let’s take a brief look at the show’s more disturbing elements, and discuss why these may have actually been the best part of the show.”

Yes…I did watch it…

8values…

“What is 8values?

8values is, in essence, a political quiz that attempts to assign percentages for eight different political values. You will be presented by a statement, and then you will answer with your opinion on the statement, from Strongly Agree to Strongly Disagree, with each answer slightly affecting your scores. At the end of the quiz, your answers will be compared to the maximum possible for each value, thus giving you a percentage. Answer honestly!

There are 70 questions in the test.
What are the eight values?

There are four independent axes – Economic, Diplomatic, State, and Society – and each has two opposing values assigned to them. They are:

Equality (Economic)
Those with higher Equality scores believe the economy should distribute value evenly among the populace. They tend to support progressive tax codes, social programs, and at high values, socialism.

Markets (Economic)
Those with higher Market scores believe the economy should be focused on rapid growth. They tend to support lower taxes, privatization, deregulation, and at high values, laissez-faire capitalism.

Nation (Diplomatic)
Those with higher Nation scores are patriotic and nationalist. They often believe in an aggressive foreign policy, valuing the military, strength, sovereignty, and at high values, territorial expansion.

Globe (Diplomatic)
Those with higher Globe scores are cosmopolitan and globalist. They often believe in a peaceful foreign policy, emphasizing diplomacy, cooperation, integration, and at high values, a world government.

Liberty (State)
Those with higher Liberty scores believe in strong civil liberties. They tend to support democracy and oppose state intervention in personal lives. Note that this refers to civil liberties, not economic liberties.

Authority (State)
Those with higher Authority scores believe in strong state power. They tend to support state intervention in personal lives, government surveillance, and at high values, censorship or autocracy.

Tradition (Society)
Those with higher Tradition scores believe in traditional values and strict adherence to a moral code. Though not always, they are usually religious, and support the status quo or the status quo ante.

Progress (Society)
Those with higher Progress scores believe in social change and rationality. Though not always, they are usually secular or atheist, and support environmental action and scientific or technological research.
What’s the “Closest Match” mean at the bottom of the results?

In addition to matching you to the eight values, the quiz also attempts to match you to a political ideology. This is a work in progress and is much less accurate than the values and axes, so don’t take it too seriously. If you disagree with your assigned ideology, send us an email at eightvalues@gmail.com with your scores, matched ideology, and preferred ideology, and we’ll look into adjusting the system. Thanks!”

“Closest Match: Libertarian Socialism

Ideological matching is a work in progress, and is much less accurate than the values and axes.”
