THESE ARE A FEW OF YOUR (LEAST) FAVORITE THINGS

by Kate Collins


I love those fun magazine quizzes that tell you something about yourself. Well today I have a fun blog quiz that may tell you something – or nothing -- about yourself. We’ll just have to see, won’t we? At any rate, it’ll be fun. So grab a pencil and paper and get ready.

Answer with the first response that comes to mind:

The one accent color you would never use in your living room.

The kind of shoe style you would never buy.

The color of lipstick you would never use.

The food you would never eat.

Your least favorite type of animal.

Your worst vacation spot.

Kind of movie you won't watch.

~~~~

The human brain seems to have quicker access to unpleasant memories than to pleasant ones. If you’ve had a bad food experiences, for example, I’ll bet you thought of one food you would never eat again immediately.

If you were ever chased by or frightened by an animal, that’s probably the one that popped into your mind first. Or you might have caught a glimpse of yourself in natural light wearing a lipstick that was decidedly unnatural on you, and you chucked that baby in the waste can ASAP.

The harder ones to answer were probably the more innocuous ones – such as the accent color or shoe style. It’s not easy to tie a specific bad memory to something like that. Well, unless you had an Abby Knight experience of falling off a super high heel and twisting your ankle.

I hope you had fun exploring your memories. If you don’t mind, I’d love it if you’d share your answers. Were the questions tough to answer on the spot or easy? Which one(s) did you have to stop and think about?

The brain is a marvelous thing, isn’t it? Mine wanted to play today, and this subject is like a playground to me.

Enjoy the week. And by the way, are you singing the Julie Andrews' song "A Few of My Favorite Things" yet?
