The Play School window. Admit it, you had a favourite.
Up until the year 2000, when the whole of Play School was given a makeover, there were only three different windows to choose from – the Square, the Round or the Arch. (The Diamond was introduced in the overhaul and probably means very little to those us who aren’t Play School purists.)
Watching it as a kid all those years ago, there was always something exhilarating about your window being chosen. It didn't matter which presenter - Benita or Noni or John or George - told us 'where we were going today', as long as our window opened to the destination.
But what does your choice say about you as a person? It turns out quite A LOT.
Psychologist Raymond Schultz says: “Day in and day out, shapes are an elemental part of our lives, and the ones that you’re instinctively drawn to directly relate to the most basic aspects of what it takes to make you happy.”
Here's what you choice of Play School window says about you.
The SQUARE window.
You’re an organised, logical and hardworking person who likes structure and rules. But sometimes you have trouble making decisions because you always want more information.
How to spot a square window person: They move stiffly, use precise gestures, love routine and are very concerned with detail. They’re also very neat in their appearance and work space. They do a lot of planning and are always prompt.
Prediction: You have become an accountant or something equally ordered and structured. You are adorably awkward, and if we opened your wallet, every note would be found facing the same way in ascending dollar value.
Heaven help the person who makes you late.
The ROUND window
You’re a “people person” with lots of sympathy and consideration for others. You listen and communicate well and are very perceptive about feelings. You like harmony and hate making unpopular decisions. A circle is the glue that holds the team or the family together.
How to spot a round window person: They’re friendly, nurturing, persuasive and generous. They tend to be relaxed and smile a lot. They’re talkative, but have a mellow voice. They also have a full laugh and love to touch others on the shoulder and arm.
Prediction: You are now either a masseuse or a social worker. You also have 17 cats and three dogs living in your house because you find it impossible to turn away any creature in need.
