Have you ever done the "True Colours" test? It works much the same as the "Myers-Briggs" or "Keirsey's Temperment Sorter". Basically, it is a way to help you identify personality types so you can
There are 4 distinct colour groups, Blue, Gold, Green and Orange. Most folks have 2 predominant colours that overshadow the 2 colours that we are not.
Blue people are all touchy feely.....they can be very empathetic, are good listeners
Gold people like rules....they are like Cops, play by the rules or go to jail
Green people are the planners.....they are like builders whose projects will take years to finish but they see it and make it happen no matter how long it takes
Orange people are spontaneous....they come up with great ideas and are very impulsive
I am a Gold/Blue or a Gold/Green. I like my rules, I like having a plan and I can be empathetic. I do however have issue's with being spontaneous....it just doesn't fit into my long term plans.
When I took this test as part of a course some years ago, the woman teaching it had a great philosophy. She said for her, she was a work in progress. She knew where she fit in and realized she had to work on her less predominant colours to become a more well rounded person.
The older I get, the more I see the wisdom in her thinking. We all have a tendancy to stay within our comfort zone and not come out of it. With that being said, change is hard. When I started chasing immortality, it was my Green that planned the long term goal. It was the Gold that defined the rules it was to be done by (eat this, don't eat that). It was Blue the that helped me find like minded people who are on the same road as I am.
My 1st is nice...white is a classic,
My 2nd is awesome, absolutely 1 of a kind and special because I worked so hard for it;
The 3rd is something I wear for training...more subtle;
And finally, the reason for todays post...a gentle reminder that i have to work on my Spontaneity (sorry you have to turn your head...for some reason it will not load properly...enjoy the close up)
