What picture represents the most beautiful relationship in your eyes?
You are motivated by the desire to be light-hearted and happy
You are motivated by the desire to enjoy life and tend to maintain good intentions in your attitude towards others, but you do not believe you need to strive and be the greatest righteous person in the world for that. You aren’t strict, and you usually prefer to approach life with a light attitude that doesn’t take things seriously. It is obvious that you maintain basic decency and integrity, but you are sometimes willing to sacrifice them if they come at your expense and limit your joie de vivre. All in all, it seems that you have found a good balance between devotion to others and concern for your benefit, and it is recommended that you continue to maintain the delicate balance between the two.
You are motivated by the desire to be moral and kind
You have a very developed awareness of morality and a clean conscience. You make sure you don’t hurt others and are willing to even bear difficult prices for your worldview. You often soul-search and even torment yourself so that you can meet the high level of dedication, sacrifice, and loyalty you have set yourself. You are a thoughtful and supportive person who believes in truth and love and judge people favorably, but you should be careful not to become a "know-it-all" pious person, and always consider that we are all human.
You are motivated by the desire to be useful and practical
You act for good reasons and focus on the "big picture" and in trying to help your loved ones, you don’t always know where to draw the line and you need to understand that the goal doesn’t always justify the means. You have a worldview that even if your intention is good, your actions can be interpreted as offensive, sarcastic, and insulting. You want people to notice that you’re giving and do things that serve your image as well. It is recommended that you abandon the pessimism and the tendency to jump to conclusions and return to your initial goal - being useful.
You are motivated by the desire to be smart and powerful
You are willing to help and give from yourself, especially for people who want to learn from you and internalize the messages you have to convey. You are an educator in your soul, and a person who loves to feel powerful, independent and sharp. You have the ability to soul-search sometimes - especially if you are critiqued by a person you value. You have a good heart and good intentions, but you believe in "tough love" as a way of life and setting a high bar of achievement for yourself and others.
