What’s your personality colour?
I absolutely love learning about different personality types, and the classic traits and natural skills these personalities have – particularly in regards to the workplace.
Research has shown that there are four basic personality types. If you know which colour personality you are you can interact and communicate better with other people.
So grab yourself a cuppa and tick the boxes below that apply to you. Well – as this is online, you’ll have to mentally tick! If you REALLY want to, you can click the image below and then print it.
Add up the totals for each colour. Which one do you score highest in?

How to interact with a Blue personality:

Personality types and good communication
Does your colour sound familiar to your personality type? Can you recognise what your other team members may be? If so, do you need to alter your communication methods and style to interact better?
If you know how to get the best out of a person, you will see great results, and better still if you recognise what colour you are, you are able to advise people how to get the best out of you.
