What Colour are You? February 8, 2012

Have you ever heard of the colour code personality test? I did the test about 18 years ago, from the book, “The Color Code” (us Canadian spell colour with a u!).   It’s based on 4 colours that determine your type of personality, and you can have a combination of each colour in you, but one usually is more dominant than the others. The colours are RED: type A personalities, leaders, grab life by the horns, and take charge!  BLUE: loyal people, tendency to hold grudges, love to give service and nurturer.  WHITE:  don’t like confrontations, are peaceful, quiet, internal thoughts, good listeners, and YELLOW:  fun, partiers,  no rules, Free, no consequences.   

Anyways, I took the test years ago, my results were a bit more white, then blue, some yellow, and 1% red.  So mostly white and some blue make up my traits.  One of the traits, did not mention that comes with a white personality is having a hard time making decisions!  One of my best friends, also scored a “white” for this personality test.  We often joke about our indecisiveness when it comes to making decisions, by saying “We are so white”, even though we are caucasian and do live in Canada, we truly are white!   Someone once told me it’s a sign of a perfectionist, not making decisions, as you are afraid, that you will make the wrong choice. I’m not a perfectionist, if I was, my house would be constantly clean and in perfect order…and I wouldnt never be able to leave the house, as I might not be good enough, for others to see.  Oh well, what you see, is what you get, and I’m happy the way I am!  I’m not making any excuses! I love the way I am, and happy to make the most of what I want to do!  Yesterday morning,  I spent my time de-junking my closet and organizing it, what a chore! I guess if I kept on top of my home, then it wouldn’t take as long to do it, or would it?  What else would I do with my time?

I’m do expect being a perfectionist only when I sell something I make, as it’s a reflection of me. Recently, I just read and learned, deciding on choices, is not about making the wrong choice, but realizing you’re going to be missing out, when you can’t have both! That, I totally agree with…it’s like eyeing your friend’s meal, as it looks even more tasty than the one you just ordered! Don’t we all seem to do that…and then try to nudge off a friendly taste on our behalf, just so we know we haven’t missed out entirely!

After getting my muslin and studio lights, I knew my decision that would be next would be backdrops! What is a girl supposed to do, when you are a 
“White” personality, and there are just so many choices to choose from!

Well….I tried covering my bases, I order several combinations of colours to fit the mood!  Dark Blue, Brown, Pink, Baby Blue, Black Damask, and a Mixture of Green/Blue with different combination of flooring! Woot Hoot! Lots of fun combinations…and I thought I might as well order a lot, rather than pay for more shipping down the road!

After ordering, there weren’t as wide and tall, as I had hope, so I now really know I need to focus on children, as they are the perfect size! …unless I do pets (in a separate area)

If you like to check out the of the Color Code, by Taylor Hartman, you may find it at your public library.  I see there are several other books he has put out.  You can check for more explanations of the test online here:  the colour code test.  You can take a free test, or you can pay to take the colour code comprehension test, and save money, use coupon code PASS-53EK to save $10 off at
