What
Is

True
Colors
?
An Assessment of Self and Others
to Achieve Collaboration

So, what is your color?
1. Locate the cards with pictures on them representing characteristics of each color personality. After carefully viewing each one, score accordingly:

4 points: “MOST like you,”
3 points: “somewhat like you,”
2 points: "less like you"
1 point: “LEAST like you.”


Score the cards and then transfer your score to the scoring grid below.
The Analysis
Let's Talk About the Four Colors and
FAMOUS people of each color!
What Does This Mean For Us?
Just a little history...
Modified from original
Galen Reavis, Lead Counselor
Dianne Thompson, Director
Office of Advisement & Counseling
Gwinnett County Public Schools

True Colors is based off other more famous personality tests.

David Keirsey categorized the personality into 4 types in the late 1960s with his best-selling self-help book "Please Understand Me."



Don Lowry, inspired by Keirsey, was amazed by the many benefits that came from recognizing personality types. He then developed the metaphor of True Colors and studied the various meanings associated with colors (“good as gold”, “true blue friend”, calming properties of green, and stimulating effects of orange).
2. Flip over to text. Repeat steps from 1.

3. Locate your color survey. There are 10 incomplete sentences that describe people. Each sentence has four possible endings. Repeat steps from 1.
4. After taking the survey, transfer your scores to the boxes on the scoring grid below. The highest score will determine your TRUE COLOR!
How did you score?
40+ = High
50+ = Extreme
5 point difference = shared strength
What if there's a tie?
Go back and look at the picture
cards of both colors again …
Go with the one that is
probably MOST like you.
Separate into groups based on your ONE dominant color. Together, brainstorm and record the following on a poster board or dry erase board (you have 10 mins):
1. Strengths
2. Challenges
3. Joys
4. Needs


Did you know that we have elected THREE of the Colors as President of the United States…
And we'll probably NEVER elect the fourth

"That's what learning is, after all; not whether we lose the game, but how we lose and how we've changed because of it and what we take away from it that we never had before, to apply to other games. Losing, in a curious way, is winning."

AT WORK:
I have a strong desire to influence and motivate others so they may lead more significant lives. I often work in the arts, communications, education, and the helping professions. I am adept at motivating and interacting with others.




AT WORK:
I am conceptual and an independent thinker. For me, work is play. I am drawn to constant challenge in careers and like to develop models, explore ideas, or build systems to satisfy my need to deal with the innovative. Once I have perfected an idea, I prefer to move on, leaving the project to be maintained and supported by others.
AT 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 am practical and sensible. I believe that work comes before play, even if I must work overtime to complete the job.
AT WORK: I am bored and restless with jobs that are routine and structured. I am satisfied in careers that allow me independence and freedom, while utilizing my physical coordination and my love of tools. I view any kind of tool as an extension of self. I am a natural performer.
Is that okay with you, blue?

A philsopher known as Hippocrates observed that people seemed to have one of four humors, or approaches to life: Phlegmatic, Choleric, Melancholic, or Sanguine.
Carl Jung in the 1920s thought people displayed 4 types of functions: Feeling, Thinking, Sensation, or Intuition. He thought for the most part that these functions were innate, but that a culture and environment can influence behaviors.

In the 1950s, Katherine Briggs and her daughter, Isabel Myers, studied Jung and chose to take it further into 16 personality combinations. This became the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.
