So I took the Hartman Personality Profile A.K.A. "The Color Code Quiz" and found that I am about 58% blue, 29% red, 11% white, and .02% yellow.
This is a breakdown of the colors from my greatest to least. The info comes from The Hartman Personality Test's website:
(58%) BLUE (Motive: INTIMACY)—These are the do-gooders. Intimacy, connecting, creating quality relationships and having purpose is what motivates and drives these people. They bring great gifts of quality and service and are generally loyal, sincere, and thoughtful.
(29%) RED (Motive: POWER)—These are the power wielders. Power, the ability to move from point A to point B, and get things done is what motivates and drives these people. They bring great gifts of vision and leadership and generally are responsible, decisive, proactive and assertive.
(11%) WHITE (Motive: PEACE)—These are the peacekeepers. Peace, or the absence of conflict, is what motivates and drives these people. They bring great gifts of clarity and tolerance and are generally kind, adaptable, good-listeners.
(.02%) YELLOW (Motive: Fun)—These are the fun lovers. Fun, or the joy of doing something just for the sake of doing it, is what motivates and drives these people. They bring great gifts of enthusiasm and optimism and are generally charismatic, spontaneous, and sociable.
With scoring only .02% yellow it is official: I really *am* the un-fun parent!
Blues are emotional...Is that why I didn't find Bella's depression to be too much in the book?
It is interesting, because as I read about the qualities and limitations of each, it seems that many of my blue qualities cancel out a lot of the negative red limitations and visa versa.
The quiz was in the book I tried to borrow from my Italian friend. Since one of her kids misplaced it, Steve picked up a copy for me at the library yesterday. I'm having everyone in our family anwer the questions. I really do like personality tests. I think they're interesting.
If you are interested in taking the free online quiz and finding out just your dominant color, you can visit the website. And to get the full results, you can ether pay the money on the website or borrow the book from your library. The book is titled, The Color Code by Taylor Hartman, Ph.D.
If you take the test, I'd love it if you'd let me know what color you are!
