    The link Above is a quiz that analyzes your personality based on your choices of color. This only takes a few minutes if you wait the full time. I took it and my results were pretty accurate based on how much I know myself.

    • Feel free to post all or part-of your results if you want to. No pressure.

    Also

    What is your favorite color?

    Red

    Orange

    Yellow

    Green

    Blue

    Indigo

    Purple

    Pink

    Turquoise

    Magenta

    Brown

    Black

    White

    Gray

    Silver

    Gold


    Fun-Fact:

    In psychology, green is the color you are supposed to like if you need to look happy and normal. "What is your favorite color?" Green is a representation of nature, peace and non-violence. The other colors all imply a specific personality aspect.

    And of course the things in this thread don't always apply to people 100% of the time.

    Pretty accurate. (Favorite Color Purple here)

    • You dislike responsibility and have difficulty dealing with real day-to-day problems.

    • You dislike being part of the crowd, wishing to stand apart from the mob - you like to be noticed for your individuality. You don't like to copy others and you don't like them to copy you.

    • You like to have the best of everything, so you aim high.

    • Being the free spirit you are, you love to travel to experience different cultures and meet new people.

    • You are a good judge of character and sum others up quite quickly and accurately, although you usually see the best in everybody.

    • You can sometimes appear arrogant and conceited if operating from a negative perspective.

    • You can be selfish and self-indulgent as you don't like being imposed upon by others beliefs and regulations.

    • You can be secretive, with even your closest friends not really knowing you well

    • You are usually introverted rather than extroverted and may give the impression of being shy although this is not the case

    As for some of the others... Can't really say.

    • As a personality color purple, you are a generous giver, asking for little in return except friendship

    • Being a personality color purple, you have a peaceful and tranquil quality and a quiet dignity about you. People are drawn to your charismatic and alluring energy

    • Your Deepest Need

    Your deepest need is for emotional security and to create order and perfection in all areas of your life, including your spiritual life.


    EDIT - Took the quiz. This too was kind-of accurate.

    • Your Existing Situation

    "Seeking for his own identity, is sensitive and seeks close nurturing relationships and environments. Has an eye for beauty and a desire to have his emotions protected and further developed." (But but but... I have often been called a greedy insensitive pig :/)

    • Your Stress Sources

    "Feels empty and isolated from others and wishes to overcome this feeling. Believes life has more to offer him than what he was experienced thus far, and doesn't want to miss out on anything. He purses all his goals and dreams, fearful that any missed opportunity will cause him to miss out on even more. Quickly becomes an expert in any field he pursues and can sometimes come off as overbearing and nosy."

    • Your Restrained Characteristics

    Current events leave him feeling forced into compromise in order to avoid being cut off from affection or future cooperation.

    "Feels he is carry(ing) more than his share of problems. He is flexible and laid back, sticking to his goals and working to overcome any difficulty."

    Is satisfied and finds contentment through sexual activity. (is actually a virgin :p)

    • Your Desired Objective

    "Looking for affectionate, fulfilling, and friendly relationships. Seeks intimacy and personal relationships full of love, self-sacrifice and trust."

    • Your Actual Problem

    Needs to find a stable and peaceful environment which will free him of the worries that are preventing him from achieving the things he wants.

    • Your Actual Problem #2

    "Prefers to be left in peace and avoids arguments, confrontation, and conflicts."

    Nice thing you have here @--Jack--

    I have three favorite colors, you know. Still, as you might have guessed, the most favorite one for me is black. You can look it up yourself though, I do not believe in any such studies.

    @Ecstasy nah... not even one of my three favorites. Blood is fun, but the color of it is a mess - it starts and good solid red, but after a while it's just dirty brown. Meh...

  8. #619382013-08-02 16:28:17 *Cenica said:

    I'm kind of unsure what do click here because I have a couple of favorite colors.
    Edit: These are the results I got for the actual color test.

    Your Existing Situation

    "Looking for a way to overcome her current problems and issues, but finds it difficult to find solutions or choose the best course of action."

    Your Stress Sources

    "Current problems are seen as dangerous and threatening. She is angry a the thought she will have to continually put off her own goals for the time being, leaving her feeling powerless to change things. She feels used, overwhelmed, and exhausted at the demands placed on her. "

    Your Restrained Characteristics

    "Demanding and picky in her relationships, but careful not to bring out conflict or disagreements and this may decrease her chances of achieving her goals and ideas."
    Emotionally distant even from those closest to her.
    Current events have her feeling forced to make bargains and put aside her own desires for now. She is able to find satisfaction and happiness through sexual activity.

    Your Desired Objective

    "Always trying to make a good impression on others, and is constantly watching to see if she is succeeding in this. Is interested in how others react to her; this makes her feel in control. Strategically plans out ways to gain further influence over others and special recognition. Is easily distracted by the pleasingly beautiful and original."

    Your Actual Problem

    "Feeling a lack of energy, she does not wish to be involved in further activity or give in to demands. She is feeling powerless causing her stress, agitation, and irritation, all which she tries to escape by refusing to participate altogether. She tries to escape into a fantasy world where things go her way and her desires are easier to reach."

  9. #619592013-08-02 18:29:54AlphaHikari_1A14 said:

    Your Existing Situation: "Needs a peaceful and quiet environment. Desires an affectionate and faithful partner who will spoil her and treat her with importance. If she feels mistreated or a lack of attention, she may withdraw." (That was pretty accurate.)

    Your Stress Sources: "Always trying to make a good impression on others, but doubtful she is succeeding. Feels she has the right to everything she hopes and dreams of and becomes annoyed and helpless when things don't go her way. Is troubled by the very thought of failure which leaves her feeling miserable. Always sees herself as the victim as if everyone treats her poorly and she never is given her fair share. Feels her failures are no fault of her own, but due to the shortcomings of others." (I agree with everything but me seeing myself as a victim. Also my mistakes and failures are my own faults.)

    Your Restrained Characteristics: "Feels she is getting less than she deserves for all her hard work; however, she makes no effort to change things and tries to make the best of the situation." (Absolutely true)

    His confidence is low but she is unable to admit that is the reason for her avoidance of conflict. Feels it is a situation out of her control and she is making the best of it. (Also true)

    "Seeking to broaden her horizons and believes her hopes and dreams are realistic. Worries she may not be able to do the things she wants and needs to escape to a peaceful, quiet environment in order to restore her confidence." (Feel that way everyday)

    Conceited and is easily insulted. Holds back emotionally but is able to find satisfaction through sexual activity. (It said that twice like one time wasn't enough to get the point across. That was completely true too.)

    Your Desired Objective: Is in need of immediate rest and relaxation. Longs for peace and a sense they are understood. Feels she has been treated unfairly which makes her angry. Cannot stand to stay in an environment in which she is treated unfairly and with no consideration for her feelings. (I do get angry a lot because of stuff like that.)

    Your Actual Problem: Lack of energy leaves her unnoticed to pursue further activities or demands placed on her. She feels powerless which leaves her agitated and depressed. Tries to escape from her struggles by searching for peaceful and restful conditions in which to relax and recover in an atmosphere full of security. (Read me like a book.)

    Your Actual Problem #2: Disappointed because her hopes have not come to pass and she fears coming up with new goals will only lead to further disappointment. These conflicting emotions lead to a feeling of anxiety and depression. She tries to escape into a peaceful and calm relationship which offers encouragement and protection from further disappointment. (Pretty accurate)

    This test had some really good results to me. They were mostly true and I couldn't deny them as facts about myself.

    Wow very interesting thread well my fav colour is red

    • You are impulsive - you should count to 10 before reacting to situations as it is in these situations that your anger and aggression often appears.
    • You are always in a hurry, wanting to do everything right now. Patience is not one of your strong points.
    • You are a hard worker and you enjoy physical labor and working with your hands.
    • Red people can be aggressive and easy to anger, often exhibiting a violent temper - this is negative passion and energy. You flare up instantaneously but calm down quite quickly once you get it out of your system and then forget it ever happened - you do not hold a grudge.
    • Lovers of red are probably not particularly spiritual or religious - however if you do participate in religious activities it is the physical customs and rituals that you are drawn to, the singing, Communion and other rituals, organizing the church fete and other fundraising activities, the physical part of being there. Red people like to take care of the nuts and bolts, the nitty-gritty, the practical aspects and physical preparation of organizing an event.
    • You have a strong need for power and control which is connected to your basic survival instincts.
    • You can be somewhat of a know-it-all, not wanting to appear unintelligent or ignorant.
    • You are a good worker, although not necessarily a good boss - your aggressive nature doesn't serve you well in management positions. Because you are action orientated you are good at meeting deadlines and getting the job done at the right time.
    • You can be quite determined when you want something, but tend to have a short attention span, moving on to the next best thing when you quickly get bored with the previous one - you want it all and you want it now!

    they are right I guess

    • Having a personality color red identifies you as extroverted and optimistic, courageous and confident.
    • You are action oriented and physically active - sex is a necessity to you - you have strong survival instincts.
    • With a favorite color red, you like to be the center of attention - in fact all reds crave attention, other people are drawn to the vitality and sense of excitement you emit.
    • As a personality color red, you are stimulating to be with and you radiate a great deal of energy.
    • You are ambitious and competitive and like to be the winner - you are achievement orientated and second place is not good enough for you. With you it is all or nothing.
    • You usually gain the respect of others quite easily with your practical and grounded attitude and ability to set boundaries.
    • Lovers of red are the explorers and pioneers of the world, the entrepreneurs and builders who like to be first in discovering new physical realms.
    • If you favor the personality color red you have a passion and enthusiasm for life and are not afraid to pursue your dreams and goals.
    • You do not procrastinate - you never put off until tomorrow what you can do today.
    • With a personality color red you may have an over active ego and appear over confident with a super inflated sense of your own worth.

    and these are the points which are all the exact opposite of me ?????? wow

    Your Stress Sources

    "Feels unappreciated and in an unpleasant position. Needs personal recognition and the respect of others, since he has not been about to find partners who value the same things he does. He holds back his emotions and is unable to give fully of himself, but lasting isolation makes him want to change those ways and surrender to his deep urges. Giving in to his natural instincts and urges is a sign of weakness, so feeling this way makes him weak and irritable. Fighting these urges makes him feel stronger, as if he can take on anything that comes his way. Longs to be valued as an important associate and admired for his personal qualities."

    "Has high emotional expectations and desires to be the center of attention, which makes it difficult to find a satisfying relationship. His reserved, cautious nature makes him emotionally distant. "

    Lone Wolf (too accurate)

    I'm sharing my favorite color - gray, since its my favorite, and rare around here

    • If this is your favorite color, you are neutral about life, often to the point of being indifferent.

    • If you love gray, you are trying to protect yourself from the chaotic outside world, even to the point of isolating yourself from others, leaving you with the feeling that you don't really fit in or belong anywhere.

    • As a personality color gray, it is important for you to maintain the status quo - you prefer a safe, secure and balanced existence and never desire much excitement. You will usually compromise in order to keep the balance and stability you so desperately seek.

    • You are practical and calm, do not like to attract attention and are simply seeking a contented life.

    • With gray as your favorite color, you are the middle of the road type, cool, conserved, composed and reliable. You tend to conform just to keep the peace.

    • Being a personality color gray, you are attracted to this neutral, non-emotional color as it controls and contains your energy - you just don't show excitement or enthusiasm about anything much in your life.

    • You are a hard worker who just gets on with the job that has to be done - you tend to be committed and loyal to your work whatever it may be.

    • You often add a splash of color to your grey look, to show that you aren't all that dull.

    • You tend to be indecisive, lacking confidence - a fence-sitter who finds it difficult to make choices in most situations in your life.

    • When operating from a negative perspective of a personality color gray you will be restrained in your actions, often putting a pessimistic slant on things.

    • You like to be in control of your emotions and avoid experiencing emotional pain by shutting off from your emotions.

    • You may be feeling stressed and over burdened, and looking for a rest, a break from the stresses of your everyday life - gray will protect you.

    • You tend to make fair and balanced judgments, and may be a good critic, because of your emotional detachment.

    • You prefer to not get involved - you are quite independent and may be quite individual in your attitude, although you lack imagination and creativity - this may give you a narrow outlook and may prevent you being open to new ideas and opportunities - the opportunities are there, you just have to embrace them.

    • With a personality color gray you may be a self-sufficient, unemotional dedicated worker in your business life and a lonely indecisive person in your private life.

    Your Deepest Need

    Your Deepest Need is to create balance in all areas of your life, to be respected for who you are and to find your place in the world with a deep feeling of belonging. (still finding it)

    Your Desired Objective

    Your Actual Problem

    "Finds himself too trusting and needs protection from this because he feels people will take advantage or misunderstand him. He hides his true feelings by being highly critical and distant, unwilling to participate unless he knows the intent is honest."

    Your Actual Problem #2
