Sigmund Freud's Priorities

This is a interesting test I came across. Try this.

Five things are happening in your house at the same time.

1. The telephone is ringing!
2. The baby is crying!
3. Someone's knocking or calling you from the front door!
4. You hung the clothes out to dry and it is beginning to rain!
5. You left the tap on in the kitchen and the water is already over flowing!

In which sequence would you solve these problems? Write down the sequence.


Every individual point represents something in your life.Below is the meaning of each point:
1. Telephone represents Work
2. Baby represents Family
3. Door represents Friends
4. Clothes represent Money
5. Tap represents Love Life

The sequence you chose determines the priorities in your life.

this test was designed a century back by sigmund. i dont think this pshychoanalysis tool can be used in now. but anyways a nice way to do some serious introspection.
