The pictures hide a lot of information. More than you imagine. Not only because of the arrangement they have on the sheet, because of the colors or the intensity of the line. When we draw, our subconscious flows more easily and reveals, of course, aspects of our personality that we ourselves did not know.
Children's drawings are very meaningful, and are often used by psychologists to discover aspects of the child or even to detect a problem. For this reason, many times they are asked to draw their family, a tree or a house. Yes, a house. You can't even imagine the things you can discover from this simple drawing. We will tell you how to take the home test to better understand your child's personality.
It is not the same to draw a big house than a small one. Or a dark and gloomy house than one of bright and cheerful colors. It is not the same to draw a house surrounded by a fence than one surrounded by a garden. Details count too. We suggest you take the test: ask your child to draw a house and discover what aspects his subconscious reveals about his personality, of their relationship with the family and the environment or way of looking at the world. But remember that before the age of 6 you will not be able to do this test:
- Big house: Own of very outgoing children, with ease to relate to others and communication skills.
- Small house: The most introverted or shy children tend to make the house smaller. They are children who do not like to attract attention. They prefer to go unnoticed and have a somewhat lower self-esteem than the rest. In some cases, it can denote a feeling of inferiority or low self-confidence.
- House with gate: Gates or fences indicate protection. They are more distrustful children, also somewhat introverted, who find it difficult to communicate their emotions. They prefer to keep their feelings to themselves. If the fence ends in a point, they are also children who tend to be defensive and give too much importance to what others say or think of them.
- House with garden: Children who add a garden around the house are very sociable, cheerful and outgoing children. They love to play in a group and interact with others.
- Long house: They are more impatient children, wanting to grow and mature faster. Impulsive and with many aspirations and dreams.
- Very low house: It can be a sign that the child feels oppressed. Perhaps the rules are too strict and do not allow you to express yourself freely. They feel anguish or worry about something.
- House on two levels: They are very observant and intelligent children. Perceptive and very detailed.
- House with very dense smoke: The normal thing is for the child to paint a chimney with smoke in a spiral shape. If, on the other hand, the smoke is a blur, black, dark, it is a sign that you are contemplating family or school problems. It is like a desire to expel all the anger or pain that is inside.
- The door: The door represents the entrance to our inner self. Some older children draw it ajar, a sign of opening to the outside. The most normal thing is for children to draw it closed. But we must look at its size. If it is too large (disproportionately), it may be a sign of overdependence, or on the contrary, of great generosity. Children who draw two doors represent family problems (or for example, parents who do not agree when setting the rules and have arguments or confrontations). And when the child draws the door to the side, instead of the center, it indicates that he has an exceptional critical sense and that he is also very selective.
- The Windows: The windows represent your relationship with your family within the home. When the child does not draw them, it can be a sign that he feels too pressured and anguished by the rules of a fairly strict education, overprotection or perhaps lack of affection. The children who decorate them are very detailed and sensitive children, and those who draw them with bars, that there is something about their family that they do not like.
When he draws several but they are not well aligned, it is a sign of a very impulsive child.
- Ceiling: The roof is related to the brain, thoughts, mind, fantasy or ethics. Thus, the absence of a roof, or an almost non-existent roof, would denote a very poor creativity or fantasy, compared to children who draw an excessively long roof, typical of a mind that is too fanciful and far from reality. The decorated or tiled roof indicates detail and of course, a very rational child with a high cognitive level. A flat roof can be related to some family conflict.
Many children draw a roof with a dormer or a window on top of the roof. They are very, very creative children, with overwhelming fantasy or imagination, although this is not normal to see in children under 8-9 years old.
- Castle-shaped house: He is surely a very dreamy child, with highly developed creativity and fantasy. Although on certain occasions, it is associated with children with a strong character and many ambitions.
