It’s interesting how our own minds can play tricks on us, making us see what’s not there or multiple versions of the same thing. Can we even trust it at that point? The answer is yes, not only should we trust it, but we should trust the first version we notice the most. Our first impression or what we notice first is rooted in our intuition and aligned with our freest thoughts, yet to be tainted by imposed logic or what we “think” we should see.

Our subconscious holds our truest selves, made of the combination of our past, present, and future selves. It might come through in our dreams or it can be exposed through image tests like the one below.

What Do You See First?

Look at the picture above and pay attention to the first thing you see. What do you see first?

According to Wake Up Your Mind, people see either trees, roots or lips and what they notice first reveals a lot about their personality and social skills. Remember that the goal isn’t to find all three images but rather to focus on the first one. Once you have it, match it with the related interpretation below.


If you see trees first, then you’re probably an extrovert who doesn’t like to be pushed around. You live life by your own rules and you’re not afraid to stand out. Despite having intuitive abilities, you prefer to hide your emotions than put them on display. You even sometimes come off as mysterious.

However underneath your thick exterior, while you pretend not to care, you tend to give importance to what others think of you. You have some walls up that are hard to get through and that make it harder for you to trust others. This is due to your sensitive nature and natural empathy. However it doesn’t make you weak. In fact you’re strong and always ready to say yes and go on new adventures.

In a way, you’re free-spirited, and connected to the bigger picture, just like the trees.


Those who see the roots first are likely to be introverts. You’re able to stand constructive criticism because you understand that mistakes don’t define you, but rather teach you the lessons that help you be better. In fact, this is how you’ve built wisdom and have taught yourself to be disciplined, focused, and responsible.

You’re hard to read and people often don’t get the right first impression of you. You may come off as boring but you’re actually full of personality. However, you’re not easily influenced by peer pressure. Despite sometimes struggling with self-esteem, you manage to always stick to your morals. Your discipline allows you to stay focused on your goals and centers you on the right path. This is how you achieve success.

In a way, you’re rooted in yourself, and can always look back within to find the right answers.


You’re defined as “simple and quiet.” You’re not necessarily on one end of the spectrum but rather somewhere in between, living an average life and finding it easy to feel comfortable and content with where you’re at. You prefer non-complications as it puts your mind at ease. This gives you the ability to simply go with the flow instead of constantly chasing the next thing and never finding satisfaction.

You may come off as naive but in reality, you just know how to make the best out of whatever cards life deals you with. You don’t need help from others. In fact, you’re often the one others come to for advice as they value your honesty and flexibility.

In a way, you’re always ready to greet life with a kiss and embrace with love whatever challenges come your way.
