So here are the personality colors & a quick synopsis of what it means to be that color:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
Right? I mean, who wouldn't want to be those things? I picked B & A respectively, in case you were wondering.
Then there were the tough ones because I didn't want to be ANY of them. Like:
b) hard to please
I mean, who wants to be any of those? Again, I picked B & D cuz I can sense you are dying to know.
I was surprised they didn't have one that said:
I guess I woulda had to pick D on that one. IF that were a real question. Which it wasn't. But if it were..... I'm just saying. I'd rather be gassy than those other three. But I digress....
My point is that I turned out to be a YELLOW. I was the only YW leader who was a YELLOW, btw. Almost all of the rest of them were BLUEs. What a bunch of freakin' do-gooders!!! And "having purpose" is soooo o-ver-ra-ted ::clap clap clapclapclap:: No, I'm totally kidding. Of course they are BLUE... that is why they are in YWs. But everyone was like "Oh OF COURSE Sister Anderson is a YELLOW! Duh!!"
But here's the thing that no one realizes about me. I had 19 answers that were yellow..... but I had 15 that were white. FIFTEEN! I think it's a odd mix myself but, really, I think it's dead on. I tend to avoid conflict to a fault. I don't like returning things to the store because I always think they are going to question why I'm bringing it back. Gty learned long ago that he needed to be the one to call if there were problems with our CC bill or something because if they were like "Um, yeah, you bought $100,000 worth of stuff from Croatia and you're gonna pay for it." I'd be like "Oh, um, ok." And I can adapt like a chameleon, baby. I just thought that was because I have lived in six different states in 12 years though. The thing is that people rarely see my whiteness (except in Hip Hop class---hazzah!).
But this begs the question: Is it because they can't get past the yellowosity that is me or because I don't let them?

I'm guessing it's the latter. I like to keep my great gifts of clarity and tolerance on the DL.
