What color are you?

Took a personality test at church the other night with the girls in my small group (which ROCKS by the way-very cool girls). Instead of using words like sanguine, phlagmatic, choleric, melancholy or beaver, otter, retriever, lion you get a color that is your personality based on your answers to 24 revealing questions.

For example:

question #5 openness or precise or risking or perceptive

question #14 I like: variety & activities or facts, data, & order or bottom line results or low key situtations

questions #20 I am known for: making things fun or doing things with order & details or making things happen or making people feel accepted

So you answer 24 questions by numbering the different answers 1 to 4 points on how it fits you...add up your score...and then they tell you what personality color you are. Obviously the score will be as accurate as you answered the questions. I tried to be as honest as possible.

Here are the basic summaries of the colors...

Yellow-Values relationships, freedom, variety, and fun. Wants and needs recognition, socialization, and verbal affirrmations. Strengths are inventive, intuitive, fun and persuasive. Needs to work on organizing time/materials and priorities.

Blue-Values belonging and doing things right. Wants and needs acceptance and appreciation for quality work. Strengths are integrity, quality, organizations, and systems. Needs to work on flexibility, not being critical and maintaining a positive attitude.

Red-Values power, achievement, and results. Wants and needs control and respect for accomplishment. Strengths are leadership, vision, perseverance, and drive. Needs to work on being non-judgemental, not so controlling and having more patience.

Green-Values peace, harmony, and a steady pace. Wants and needs acceptance for who I am, not what I do. Strengths are diplomacy, adaptability, stability, and empathy. Needs to work on asserting myself and not becoming overwhelmed. Taken from Vicki Barnes Seminar

Can you guess what color I am?? What color do you think you would be??

I think you're yellow all the way! I think I'm in between Blue and Green...not sure.

I see you as a green, but I am insane, so take that for what it is worth.

I see myself as purple, right between blue and red.

I got curious and googled color test and found this one:

And here is what I got:

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.

Not too sure about that.
