A symbol that reflects me – and why


Symbols are packed with lost of messages that we often interpret subconsciously and as such, they are powerful conveyors of information.

Decide upon a symbol that accurately represents you, or an important aspect of who you are as a person.  What do you believe?  What are your values? What are your hobbies?

The above symbol is the yin and yang symbol which symbolises harmony and balance.  For some of you, this may reflect you as a person, but it may not for others.

    The symbol that best represents me is a Dolphin. The first reason why I believe I am a dolphin is because I am very energetic and enjoy physical activities. This relates back to the dolphin because they are constanlt moving. I also enjoy being in the water at the becah, in the pool and on the boat, playing sport or just relaxing. In summer I tend to live in my togs. Again, dolphins live and play in the water which represents me. Lastly, I am a happy person and love to laugh. Dolphins act in a similar way when they converse with each other and they always seem to be happy.

    • My second Attempt:
      I believe the symbol that best represents my personality is a dolphin. I chose a dolphin is because I am very energetic person who loves outdoor activities. This relates back to the dolphin because they are extremely active and they have lots of energy. I also enjoy being in the water, at the beach, in the pool and on the boat, playing sport or just relaxing. Dolphins live and play in the ocean and in summer I tend to live in my togs so I believe that the dolphin the perfect symbol for me. Lastly, I am a happy person and love to laugh. Dolphins act in a similar way when they converse with each other and they always seem to be happy.

  2. The symbol I chose that best represents me is a gymnastics beam. I chose this symbol for many reasons. The first reason is because gymnastics is such a massive part of my life and is my favourite thing to do in the whole entire world. Another reason is because, for me, beam is the most difficult apparatuses. This means I fall off a lot but I get back on every time. I believe this best symbolises me over any symbol because I feel I always get back up whenever I fall off track. 🙂


  3. I believe the symbols that represent me are a rugby ball, a tiger and a aeroplane. The reason i choose an aeroplane is becasue of my travel to other countries and that i have lived in lots of different places. A rugby ball because of my love of sport and finally a tiger because i like to be a leader, go were ever i want and not be told what to do.

    I decided that the symbol that best represents me is a butterfly. Most butterflies always travel in groups and I love to be with my family and friends. Butterflies are often colorful which describes that they are energetic. I am very energetic. When butterflies are fluttering around they look happy. I am a very happy person. Some types of butterflies travel very far from home every year. I also traveled very far from where I come from. I believe butterflies are a good symbol to represent me.

  5. I believe that my symbol is a mango. Mango’s are bright, sweet and I think that fits my personality. Some mango’s are soft and pulpy, I can be caring and understanding. In the mango there is a hard seed, I believe that, that seed represtents hard times in my life. When cut mango’s are yellow which is a bright colour and for me that means, I am a happy person. Mango’s are mostly sold in summer, which is my favourite season. I also like mangos.

    The symbol that best describes me is a star. Firstly, there are millions of stars out there in the universe, like there are humans in the world, but each one is unique and so am I. Secondly, when you see a cartoon star, or when someone draws them, they are often yellow, which is a bright, bubbly and happy colour. I believe that I am a happy and bubbly person and I am also unique, which is why I chose a star to represent me.

  7. I believe that the best symbol to represent me is a salmon. The salmon is a hardworking and very determined fish. Every breeding season it swims for miles up a stream with great leaps and raging water and predators lurking on every bank, and the salmon transforms several times over its life to contend with this. It becomes stronger and faster. I see myself much the same as this. I picture that raging stream as life, and me just a fish. I am determined and passionate about reaching my goal and sometimes, I change.

  8. The symbol that best represents me is a mountain bike. I chose the mountain bike as it requires alot of physical effort which i enjoy as it helps me get/stay fit. I also chose the mountain bike as people can ride with family and friends which can be very enjoyable and also a good time to socialise. I also chose it as my symbol because i love the outdoors and in mountain biking you spend a fair bit of time outside. 😀

  9. Paragraph:My symbol is a light house. When comparing a lighthouse to me, the similarities might not be very evident. But if you look deeper you can slowly recognise the similarities. Just like the light house in the picture I am quite tall and can be seen from afar. Like most lighthouses I am built in a strong and stable manner ready to take on any challenge that gets thrown in my path. The task of the lighthouse is to keep people out of harm’s way, this, in a moderately exaggerated form is what I do. This lighthouse also likes to play the piano just as much as I do.

    My symbol is the Dove as I believe that is the most realistic thing that represents me. I like a peaceful and harmonious environment, and I dislike conflict and I will often try and resolve the issue and similarly doves are often portrayed as peace bearers. Also doves represent free spirit and care, and in my opinion I have both those qualities. Doves are a part of nature and as I love the outdoors and wildlife a dove represents me well. I have also always wanted to fly! 🙂

  11. I believe the best symbol to represent me is a lightning strike. The meaning might not be evident at first, however it can be related to three items or values I treasure: my faith in God, my love of physical activity and my love of playing the piano. Firstly, my faith in God is bright, strong and powerful, as in a lightning strike – it will never fail until I fade (die), as when the stroke of light disappears. A lightning strike is energetic, strong and quick, relating to physical activity, and the downward motion of a strike is parallel to music – in the early stages of learning your brain is simply trying to learn notes but later your passion for music flows from your brain into the heart – downwards like a lightning strike.


  12. Jack’s Symbol

    I believe that I am best represented as a peace symbol with a dove. The peace sign shows my negativity towards violence and how we should have earth-centred unity. The dove portrays my purity and beliefs in the lord as it can also be seen as the Holy Spirit. Also the symbol shows the sins that I present like any other person; the lines in the circle show the cross of saint peter who begged that he have worse that Jesus to apologise for his sins. To continue I possess two different life styles which is shown by the fact that this sign is able to be seen as good and bad.
