I Am An Orange Married To A Green

Hugh and I took a little personality test last night via Mrs. Susan at The Penless Writer. My primary color is orange and Hugh's primary color is green. My secondary color is yellow and it was within three points of my primary. Hugh's secondary was red. Here are the descriptions of our primary colors...

ORANGE:

These are our out-going, enthusiastic, center-stage people.

They act on a moments notice. They are witting, charming and spontaneous. They love to talk. They need variety, fun and stimulation. They are natural trouble-shooters and are good at flying by the seat of their pants.

They are great at motivating and inspiring others. They are great net-workers. They usually know a lot of people. They can be very loving and encouraging unless under pressure when they can use their verbal skills to attack. They have a strong desire to be liked and enjoy being the center of attention.

They are personable and are sensitive to the reactions of others, often taking things personally. They usually pay attention to style and trends (many times setting them). They can be the life of a party. They are great at inspiring and motivating others and thrive in an environment where they can have a voice in making major decisions.

GREEN:

These are people that we might refer to as "Rocks of Gibraltar."

They are fair and dependable. They are honest and stable. They are loving and reliable. They live their lives with a great deal of integrity.

They take a larger view of the world and see things from a reference of wholeness and completeness. They pride themselves in being able to see the "big" or "whole" picture. Their word has great value and they do not give it lightly. When they commit, their word is their bond. They are in a constant progression toward wholeness.

They love to categorize and view the world from a systems perspective. They enjoy consistency and like things that have a measure of predictability. They are empathetic but not overly sympathetic. They rebuke with without judgment, counsel with mild but strong hearts. They are temperate, modest and wise.

I love little tests like this. I think it's interesting and we love to discuss the results. If you'd like to take the test, you can find it here. I'd love to know how it turns out if you'd like to share. ~Blessings on your day!

I LOVE things like this, too! Have you ever read Personality Plus by Florence Littauer? It's really good- kind of like Meyers Brigg, but not as complex.

Tiffany said...
