Now that you know what you have seen, let's take a look about what each image means...

The Knife

Vladimir Kush

The knife represents a fear of illness. You are a bit of a hypochondriac and tend to worry about terminal illnesses more than the average person. You are constantly thinking about what you would do if you or a loved one was diagnosed with a disease or should an epidemic break out.

The Caterpillar

Vladimir Kush

The caterpillar represents a fear of the unknown, specifically of supernatural elements that you don't understand. While you may not advertise your thoughts on the afterlife to everyone, you have a developed an increasingly present paranoia surrounding ghosts and spirits, and what happens to our souls after we die.

The Butterfly

Vladimir Kush

Seeing a butterfly in the image means that you suffer from a fear of rejection and betrayal. You tend to hide it from others, and act like you aren't affected, but deep down inside you take rejection very hard. You don't trust people easily, so when someone breaks that trust, you don't know how to handle it.

The Apple

Vladimir Kush

If you see an apple when you look at the image then you are actually fearful of death. While most people are a little uneasy when it comes to the topic of mortality, your obsession with the inevitability is consuming. You are fixating on something you cannot control and can miss opportunities because of this obsession.

The Fly or The Seeds

Vladimir Kush

If you first noticed the fly or the seeds of the apple, then you are a perfectionist and your fear of failure is one that you need to deal with. You have an eye for detail, but you become so obsessed and focused on them you are never able to let go and move on.
