took a test about my unconscious. i was shown several
inkblot images and finally this is what came out:

Candice, your unconscious mind is driven most by Self-
protection

Whether you know it or not, your unconscious mind is
defending your internal emotional experiences. It acts like
an emotional dam that helps you keep things in check. One
reason for this could be that you have a deeply-rooted fear
of being flooded by emotions. In response, your unconscious
acts in the opposite manner, by protecting you from
unpredictable, emotional tidal waves.

While this tendency might be useful in some circumstances,
it may also at times make your emotions hard to articulate
or grasp. And that can lead to some frustration.

Since you tend to appear level-headed to others, they feel
they can count on you for sound opinions and advice.
Another benefit of your unconscious drive is that it allows
you to remain calm in the toughest of situations. This can
be a real benefit for you during business negotiations or
personal arguments because you're not apt to say damaging
things that you'll have to apologize for later.

The only hazard with this drive towards self-protection, is
you might filter out good emotions as well as the bad. That
can leave you feeling like something is missing, something
you can't quite place.

But ultimately, your unconscious is wise and will know if
there is a time in the future where it would be beneficial
to be different.

Though your unconscious mind is driven most strongly by
Self-protection, there is much more to who you are at your
core.
