Transcript of True Colors

What Color Are You?
True Colors
Created by Don Lowry in 1978

Grounded in Hippocrates' identification of four primary personality types:
- Sanguine (extroverted/creative)
- Choleric (task-driven)
- Melancholic (introverted/reflective)
- Phlegmatic (harmonious)

Lowry's original test featured colors and the theater (see creepy mime cards, stage right) to blend learning and entertainment.
