Personality: What's Your Color?

Are you a Red? Maybe a Blue? Many psychologists believe that each of us has a dominant personality type with traits unique to that type. The way we think, act and feel all play a part in defining our personality.

How well do you know yourself and others? How would you characterize your personality? Have you ever wondered why you get along with some people better than others?

Take this test to learn more about your personality type. Colors have been assigned for easy reference. Once you know your color, it’s an eye opening experience to see how your unique traits play out in life as compared to differing personalities. The better we understand ourselves and others, the more effective we can be in all our relationships.

Below are sixty word phrases that may or may not describe you. Click "YES" for the phrases that best characterize you. If you do not feel strongly about a phrase, check "NO.” For another perspective, you may wish to have your partner or someone who knows you well assess how he or she sees you. (This may lead to engaging conversations about how you perceive yourself in the world and how you are perceived by others).
