The first states that those personality characteristics that are most important in peoples' lives will eventually become a part of their language.

In order for a password to work successfully and provide security to its user it must be kept secret and un-guessable; this also requires the user to memorize their password.

Password psychology - Wikipedia

The psychology behind choosing a password is a unique balance between memorization, security and convenience. Password security involves many psychological and social issues including; whether or not to share a password, the feeling of security, and the eventual choice of whether or not to change a password. Passwords may also be reflective of personality. Those who are more uptight or security-oriented may choose longer or more complicated passwords. THE POSITIVIST REPUDIATION OF WUNDT. Ebbinghaus.

Mental Imagery (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)

Meanings and Connotations of ‘Mental Imagery’ Mental imagery is a familiar aspect of most people's everyday experience (Galton, 1880a,b, 1883; Betts, 1909; Doob, 1972; Marks, 1972, 1999). A few people may insist that they rarely, or even never, consciously experience imagery (Galton, 1880a, 1883; Faw, 1997, 2009; but see Brewer & Schommer-Aikins, 2006), but for the vast majority of us, it is a familiar and commonplace feature of our mental lives. The English language supplies quite a range of idiomatic ways of referring to visual mental imagery: ‘visualizing,’ ‘seeing in the mind's eye,’ ‘having a picture in one's head,’ ‘picturing,’ ‘having/seeing a mental image/picture,’ and so on.
