It can actually reveal a lot about who you are as a person. So take one more good look at this picture and then scroll down to find the part of the image you saw first to see what it says about you.

What You See First Reveals How Your Subconscious Wants You To Act

Everyone presents themselves to the world in a certain way. Whether they are super tough, extremely sweet, or a free spirit, there is always a specific way that we express ourselves to the general public. But then there is who we really are, the personality we reveal only to our nearest and dearest friends, or even just to ourselves.

Your subconscious mind is always trying to show itself, and help you show who you really are. One way that it does this is by making you notice certain things first. The images you see and the parts of it that you notice first can reveal a lot about who you are. Let’s see what your subconscious is trying to tell you!

Take a look at this image, and make sure you focus on the first part you notice.

Did you pick out what you saw first? Here’s what it means.

The baby owl on the far left represents your passion for inner reflection. While you present yourself as this fun-loving, open, and loud person, you actually take a great deal of pleasure from quiet introspection and need time to focus on yourself. Your subconscious wants you to spend more time alone and focus on centering yourself.

You have struggled in your life with a lot, but you are stronger than anyone knows. You hate when people look at you like you should be pitied because you know that you are more powerful than anyone gives you credit for. Your subconscious would like you to stand up for yourself more in front of others, instead of letting them walk all over you.

You are shy when it comes to speaking up, but it doesn’t mean you aren’t worthy of respect. You can’t let people tell you what you’re worth, and your subconscious believes that you need to start believing in yourself more.

You are highly guarded and people can tell this, but what they don’t see is that it is mostly a ruse. You form strong personal attachments, but hide your feelings to try to protect yourself. Your subconscious wants you to open up more, and let the people you care for know how you feel.

Those aren’t the only animals in the image, but what do the others reveal…

The Secret Symbols Hiding In Every Pack Of Playing Cards

It’s easy to forget when you’re playing your millionth game of computer solitaire, but the standard pack of playing cards is an ancient and mysterious object.

Decks of cards have been used in China since the 600s, and gradually spread to Egypt. The standard deck of Egypt’s Mamluk dynasty, with swords, batons, cups and coins, eventually traveled into Italy and later the rest of Europe.

While some countries like Italy and Greece still use the original Egyptian card suits, most decks have adopted the four French suits that evolved in the late 1400s. There’s no exact origin for the designs, but each suit is connected to a distinct part of society:

  • Clubs are associated with peasants, laborers and work.
  • Diamonds are connected to merchants and wealth.
  • Hearts are usually compared to the clergy, and the search for happiness and love.
  • Spades are tied to warriors and also nobility.

The French also gave us another very familiar part of the modern deck: the aces.

While a “one” card has always existed, the French Revolution, which saw the French people overthrow their King and Queen, turned the lowly ace into a “trump” card that could defeat the King and Queen cards.

But it turns out even the number of cards in a deck has a special meaning.

Cards Against Humanity Just Gave 100 People $1000 To Prove A Point

While you may know it as a game you play with a group of friends after you’ve had a few drinks, Cards Against Humanity is more than just a party game.

The politically incorrect game has decided to tackle an issue that is near and dear to our pockets.

“Today, eight men own the same amount of wealth as the poorest half of humanity (almost 4 billion people). Most Americans can’t come up with $400 in an emergency, and one in five American households have zero or negative wealth,” Cards Against Humanity explains on its website. “Our lawyers advised against our first choice — a campaign to eat all the rich people and live in their houses — so we settled for something more achievable.”

The card game had 150,000 people sign up for “Cards Against Humanity Saves America,” which was an experiment in wealth disparity.

The holiday promotion has promised people six surprises in the month of December at the cost of $15.

“There’s no time for questions—now is the time to act. You give us $15, and we’ll send six America-saving surprises right to your doorstep,” they said.

10 Huge Mistakes Everyone Makes On The Price Is Right

We’ve all seen hundreds of episodes of America’s favorite game show, but almost nobody realizes there’s a winning strategy for The Price is Right.

Ben Blatt, a Harvard grad with a degree in applied mathematics, managed to crunch the numbers in the show’s most popular games and created an all-in-one cheat sheet with tips for how to win. As it turns out there is a science to even the most “random” games like Plinko. We break down how you can avoid the 10 most common Price is Right blunders:

Mistake #1: Not impressing Stan Blits

Who is Stan Blits? He’s a longtime production assistant for the game show with a very special job: Stan screens every person in the studio audience, looking for contestants to “come on down” to Contestant’s Row, and he alone decides who gets to play.

Blits, seen here firing up the crowd before a ‘Price’ taping.Shared

You could know all the prices by heart and still never get a chance to prove it if you don’t impress San Blits while waiting in line. Luckily, Stan has revealed what he’s looking for: “energy, sincerity, and potential humor. And if they can equal my energy or exceed it and maintain it, they are at the top of the list.”

Mistake #2: Guessing on Contestant’s Row

How much is a new barbecue, a vinyl record player and a flat screen TV worth? The odds are whatever number you just thought of was too low. Blatt checked the data on Contestant’s Row bids and found they were almost always lower than the actual price.

Whatever they bid, the last person to guess the price has a 35% chance of winning this round. Always try to guess $1 higher than the highest bid so far. If you do this as the last bidder, your odds of winning are an impressive 53%

Mistake #3: Starting from the bottom on the Clock Game

We don’t expect you to know the average price of the Clock Game prizes, but Blatt assures us that they’re almost always between $500 and $1,000. Your first bid in this “higher or lower” game should be $750, smack-dab in the middle.

If you keep using that technique (for instance, if it was higher than $750 your next guess would be $875, because that’s halfway to $1,000) you can normally get the exact price in 10 guesses or less.

Mistake #4: Bidding low on the Cliff Hangers prizes

The aim of this game is to guess the exact price of each of the three prizes, because for every dollar you’re off the mark by the mountain climber rises one of the 25 steps. The trick isn’t to guess perfectly, but to bet smart to keep the price difference low.

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5bjdOFeByw?feature=oembed]

Blatt recommends starting with $19 (which is usually very close to the first prize). Each prize is more expensive than the next, so once the first prize has been revealed bet $11 more (so after a $30 prize, bid $41). Your mountain climber should be safe if you follow this strategy.

Mistake #5: Ending a car price with 95 or 50

One of the most exciting things you can hear while competing on Price is Right is that you’ll be bidding on a new car. But many contestants mess up their chance to win their new ride, and host Drew Carey thinks he knows why.

He says that most contestants make the same mistake when they bet on a car: ending their guess in 95 or 50. Here’s his reasoning:  “Car payments end in 95, 50, and 99. And, when you look in the paper all you see is the payment, you never see the car price. In the ad, you always see the payment, so that’s why people say the car has got to be 98 or 95.”
