Are you a literal(realism) or figurative type person?

Figures on a Beach by Picasso - Figures on a Beach by Picasso as an example of non-realistic type of thinker.

To illustrate what I mean, if you were asked to try to draw a person would you try to draw them very realistically like maybe Rembrandt or would you try to draw them in a less realistic style or a figurative style like some of Picasso's work, see attached picture? So what type of personality do you have based on what you would choose to do in this example?

Sounds like an attempt at realism. Are all the arms, legs, head, etc. generally in the right place?

I am a realist. I expect people to mean what they say, and to say what they mean. If they do not do this, it is not my problem. I treat people as if they are saying what they mean, I pay attention and I take everything literally. It is not up to us to read eachother's minds.

That is partly what I meant and partly not. I expect people to be that way, also. But there is also being truthful while still having a personality that leans toward a figurative way of expression.
