hello, i'm a yellow.

So my supervisor at work is on a week-long cruise, and hence i am B-O-R-E-D at work. They put me at the front desk (good thing i hate answering the phone), and after eating enough cashews to fill me to the brim, I started perusing the Internet for something enjoyable.

And hence....a personality analysis. I used to hear about "the color code" from a good friend who worked at a juvenile justice camp that prescribed to the philosophy to analyze incoming delinquents. Basically it breaks people down into categories (red, yellow, blue, or white) based on traits they displayed AS A CHILD. This part got me skeptical...I don't think I'm the same person I was in high school, let alone who I was at 7. But my friend always claimed I was a "yellow," and I always wondered....

He was right. Yellow it is. Overwhelmingly yellow, in fact.

Here's what the test told me:

Yellows are motivated by Fun. They are inviting and embrace life as a party that they're hosting. They love playful interaction and can be extremely sociable. They are highly persuasive and seek instant gratification.
Yellows need to be adored and praised. While yellows are carefree, they are sensitive and highly alert to others' agendas to control them. Yellows typically carry within themselves the gift of a good heart.
Yellows need to look good socially, and friendships command a high priority in their lives. Yellows are happy, articulate, engaging of others and crave adventure. Easily distracted, they can never sit still for long. They embrace each day in the "present tense" and choose people who, like themselves, enjoy a curious nature.
Yellows are charismatic, spontaneous, and positive; but can also be irresponsible, obnoxious, and forgetful. When you deal with a yellow, take a positive, upbeat approach and promote light-hearted, creative, and fun interactions.

So there you go, kids. You're dealing with a yellow.
I don't know....what do you think?

p.s. Go analyze yourself. It's free. It makes you put in some info at the end, but I made up a last name and a zipcode so the zombies can't hunt me down....just in case. It emails you the link to see your results, but if you unclick the box about receiving newsletters then it shouldn't spam you or anything. (Are yellows too trusting?) The only downside is that it only tells you what your main type is. I guess you have to pay to get more in-depth results. Too bad I'm "easily distracted and can't sit still for long," or maybe I'd do some more investigating.

I can see that. I'm a blue, but my secondary color was either yellow or white, I can't remember.

I took a test like this in my Philosophy class in high school. Then, I scored ninety-something percent blue.
Today I scored fifty three percent blue. Secondary was white.
I guess my desire to have close relationships has been decreased and replaced by a desire for inner peace.
That sounds about right.
I can see you as a yellow. For like half those things. The other half I wouldn't have guessed but also probably because for most of your adult life so far, we haven't been in as close of contact. Well, that makes me sound like a horrible sister. But you know what I mean.
I had hoped we would be the same color and I could say, "We are the same color. That is neat."
Now I want to go impulsively buy the book...
