Transcript of 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.
