    Default "true colors"/birkman assessment

    i took the "true colors" test or whatever, this abbreviated adapted birkman quiz the other day in this horrible pedagogy class i have. anyhow, the results were interesting. we grouped ourselves into colors, and i found that i couldn't stand most of the people who scored into my same color group. they were people i had already had clashes with (albeit passive-aggro silent ones mostly.)

    Learning Styles - Color

    the test is at the link above.

    www.terry.uga.edu/~jaronson/truecolors/TrueColors.ppt

    info on the "colors" is here.

    i'm guessing this has been done before but let's get a recount!

    Red maybe green

    seems vaguely like...

    red = EJ
    green = EP
    yellow = IJ
    blue = IP

    i don't think that's a horrible correlation, but i'm not sure any strong ones can be made.

    i was a blue, fwiw.

    disagree. yellows seem well organized, but hyperorganization doesn't always equal T. many times not at all. try an ENTp physics professor.

    yeah, I definitely got more than 5 on the first part, and I was stuck between 4 and 5 on the second part.

    I got blue...but I don't think it's correct, right? I think I'm either red or green.

    Yellow, strangely.

    EDIT

    Or not-so-strangely, I'd say that's actually a good fit. Green seems like the best, though, from reading the tables. The only thing that I wouldn't say applies is "Competitive"... I deliberately avoid competing where possible.

    Weak green, maybe blue.

    I didn't take the test. I usually think it's better to simply look at the descriptions and decide for myself. In that case, blue ftw.

    This is pretty old, but I don't care.. 3 in the first section and 2 in the second makes me a blue.

    Compared to the other categories, it's actually amazingly accurate..
