KOKOLOGY TEST: You are only human

Kokology is the study of kokoro (Japanese: 心) which in the aforementioned language means “mind” or “spirit”. The Kokology book series was created by Tadahiko Nagao and Isamu Saito, a professor at Rissho and Waseda Universities in Japan and an author of a number of bestselling books regarding psychology and relationships. The main focus is the analysis of the deep psyche using theories from Freud and Jung. Kokology Questions typically are “guided” Day Dreams or Submodalities.

“I can’t believe it! How could I do something so stupid?” We have all too many chances to say those words. Burned toast, coffee stains on paperwork, sleeping through the alarm clock, stubbed toes, missed exits – it’s human nature to goof up once in a while. Nobody’s perfect, and each of us proves that every day. Keep that in mind the next time you’re tempted to laugh at other people’s careless mistakes. After all, you never know when it’ll be your turn to wear mismatched socks to work.

You’re walking down the street, thinking of other things, when you stumble into a garbage can on the sidewalk and knock it over. What comes spilling out from under the lid?

1. Nothing comes out – the can was empty.
2. A pile of loose trash spills out onto the street.
3. Apple cores, chicken bones, and other raw garbage.
4. A well-tied black plastic garbage bag.

You are only human: Kokology key

In your carelessness you overturned a garbage can, dumping out something that had been neatly shut away and exposing it for all the world to see. Your image of the can’s contents reveals things inside you that you try to hide from public view.


Nothing comes out / the can was empty. People who gave this answer tend to live their lives without making displays or false pretenses. What you see is what you get. It’s this simple honesty that gives them their charm.


A pile of loose trash spills out onto the street. Those of you who said the can was full of loose trash may seem to be straightforward and forthright to others but actually have a pile of unexpressed feelings locked up within. You may notice these feelings only as a general sense of frustration, but when you think about it, aren’t there places where you’ve been holding back from saying the things you really feel?


Apple cores, chicken bones, and other raw garbage. People who imagined a pile of kitchen waste are suppressing their appetites and the natural desire for food. Maybe you’re on (or just avoiding) a diet. Or trying to save money by cutting back on eating expenses. Whatever the case, it’s taking its toll on you. There’s no need to overdo it, but it might do you good to spend, well-earned night out at a restaurant with friends.


A well-tied black plastic garbage bag. People who saw a neatly tied garbage bag have a strong sense of self-control. Maybe too strong. You hate to show weakness of make complaints – your pride won’t allow it. But letting others know how you really feel is no sign of weakness. Loosen up the drawstrings and let in some air before all that garbage goes bad and starts to smell.
