My True Color

What is your true color?

Childhood

I wanted to follow the rules and regulations of the school. I understood and respected authority and was comfortable with academic routine. I was the easiest of all types of children to adapt to the education system.

Relationship

I am serious and tend to have traditional, conservative views of both love and marriage. I enjoy others who can work along with me, building secure, predictable relationships together. I demonstrate admiration through the practical things I do for the ones I love.

Work

I provide stability and can maintain organization. My ability to handle details and to work hard makes me the backbone of many organizations. I believe that work comes before play, even if I must work overtime to complete the task.

Questions

1) What three characteristics about your color fit you best?

During my childhood I always wanted to follow the rules in school. I can maintain organizations. Also, I expect loyalty. Some that were not like me was that I don't have traditional, conservative views. I really don't expect people to 'play their roles.' Also the last thing that really doesn't fit me is my ability to handle details.


2) What type of job do you believe fits your personality type?

It seems like being a salesperson would fit my personality type, but I don't want to be a sales person.


3) How might your color affect you at work?

My color says I'm very organized, which I kind of am. I always have to have things in a specific place and everything has to be neat.
