A Simple Drawing Test to Interpret Yourself

How to find out the personality of yourself. Drawing-test to know your personality.

Instructions: Draw a sun, river, tree, snake and house. Do it on your own and make sure that your drawing is not influenced by anyone or anything.

Draw before you read this part!


  • Tree – The tree is your mother. If you draw a large tree, it means you idolize your mother/look up on her. On the contrary, a tree that is levelled with the house means that you treat your mother as a close buddy.
  • House - The house is you. Open windows and doors mean that you you are open to the outside world while the opposite (closed) implies that you are not ready to accept everything ‘unknown’ or ‘new’. The design of the house, on the other hand, signifies your simplicity. The more complex the drawing is, the more complex you are.
  • Sun - The sun is your father. The distance of the sun respective of the house implies  how close you are with him. A rising sun or a sun that is partly hidden behind a bunch of clouds means that you are not very open with each other. If you draw sunglasses , funky eyes, nose, smiling mouth etc. on the sun, perhaps your father is a fun and jolly person.
  • River - The river represents your friends. If it runs long and wide, you have a very rich library of friends. Again, the distance of the river with the house (you) determines your closeness with your friends.
  • Snake - The snake is your hardships and problems. If you put it away, that means the problems are far from you. If you put it on the house, the problem is in you; on the tree, in your mother; and so on…

So, did the interpretations matched you? Or are there some items that seemed to be not totally you? Always keep in mind that to be a better person, you must not change your own personality because there is only one you in the whole universe. You are unique.

    @mishee, Ha ha, I don’t know. You be the judge. I guess you don’t have much problems.

    Are you sure that the Snake means HARDSHIP? I was given this same activity by a couple of my friends studying B.Ed ; and they were told that the Snake interprets as the Husband (I’m a girl). I had drawn it behind the house, & they interpreted it as “close proximity with him” (as in physical, ie: he would always be around, not away on business etc.). Those who drew it on the other side of the river, they said, would mean that their husbands would be away most of the while.
    But, after reading this article, I’m confused, because I could have put it behind the house since it means hardship, & I wasn’t feeling like drawing it too.
    Or, is Husband & Hardship identified as the same?

    Hi Mary! Thanks for your interest. Hardships and husbands cannot come together. Problems and hardships are symbolized in the subconscious of the human mind as an animal that bites. In this activity, it was instructed to draw a snake. You can search for this symbolism in the internet. :)

    I drew a sun setting over the horizon, partially covered by my house in front of it. What does it mean, that my sun is so close to my house, yet partially hidden by it?

    Most of the interpretation was wrong for me. I made the snake a part of the tree, but my mom is not a problem. Also, I drew the sun huge and smiley, and while my dad can be goofy sometimes, the description didn’t make much sense. I think I was seeing the sun more as my friends. I don’t know what I thought the snake was. Sin, maybe, but I’ve never exactly disliked snakes, so mine looks almost playful. And the house was just a house to me, and I don’t see how the tree is my mom.
    I drew a bridge over the river, too.

    some part is quiet accurate. but some are not so much.
    I have phobia towards snake so that may affect the outcome. I drew a tiny dot under a dock near the river, far away from my house to represent it.
