Color Codes

From another blog I enjoy reading, I found a link to an interesting personality test called The Color Code which may be found at; The site offers a free basic test interpretation or you may purchase a more in depth if you choose. I completed the test out of curiosity and here I share information from my basic profile derived from the test;

My personality style was determined to be a BLUE

Motive: BLUES are motivated by intimacy. They seek to genuinely connect with others, and need to be understood and appreciated. Everything they do is quality-based. They are loyal friends, employers, and employees. Whatever or whomever they commit to is their sole (and soul) focus. They love to serve and give of themselves freely in order to nurture others' lives.

Traits: BLUES have distinct preferences and their personal code of ethics is remarkably strong and they expect others to live honest, committed lives as well. They enjoy sharing meaningful moments in conversation as well as paying close attention to special life events (e.g. birthdays and anniversaries). BLUES are dependable, thoughtful, and analytical; but can also be worry-prone and moody. They are "sainted pit-bulls" who never let go of something or someone once they are committed. When you deal with a BLUE be sincere and make a genuine effort to understand and appreciate them.

Actually I found this remarkable because I do in introspection agree with all of the comments received in my profile. Hopefully this will allow readers to feel that they know me a bit better. It was amazing to me that such a brief test could reveal so much of what I actually see in my own personality. I encourage you to take the test and learn whether your results are equally on target.

Talking Points:

For any who take the test: Did you find the test accurately portrayed your personality style in the way you see yourself? Did you learn anything surprising from the test? I’d love it if any would care to share their own experience with the test.

I am blue too. Interesting questions they ask as well. I think it does fit my personality well.

I am a red, which also fits my personality. The book is very interesting and discusses all color combinations in terms of relationships (romantic, parent-child, coworker, etc.). I didn't learn anything suprising from the test, but I did from the book. I can now figure out what color person I am talking to and how better to deal with them.
