Your Personality Style as a white
As a WHITE, you are driven by a core motivation that is perhaps least easily identified by the other colors. You are driven at your very core by the motivation of PEACE. You simply want to feel independently harmonious and at peace with those around you. All behavior based personality theories read you inaccurately. They look only at your outward behavior and miss the driving core motivation within which is at the heart of understanding you. Another reason you are least understood comes in how quiet you are in expressing yourself. You are the least likely of the colors to present your thoughts or demand attention.
You are a powerful intellect with remarkable logic on clarity on all aspects of the human experience. The problem lies in getting you to share what you think inside or how you see others. You crave tranquility and expend tremendous energy in order to remain free of conflict. It is not uncommon for you to tuck yourself away with a good book or take a long solitary hike far from the maddening crowd. For you, alone time is not only welcome, it is mandatory for you to function.
You are keenly aware of your surroundings but wait for others to invite your feedback before verbally sharing your insights. You are a wealth of knowledge which unfortunately often goes untapped because of your resistance to freely speaking your mind, especially if it might create conflict. While you are capable of having NOTHING on your mind at any given time, even when you have thoughts you typically present yourself as detached or uninterested. A college professor once asked a young WHITE student if he was happy. The student simply nodded her head in the affirmative. However, your lack of facial expression caused the professor to say, "If you are happy, why don’t you tell your face?!" You must remember that you cannot NOT communicate! Your body language often denotes lack of energy, emotional aloofness or even anger.
You are brilliant on your own. You love your own company and find that you quite enjoy living in your own head. When a parent sends a WHITE child to her room out of frustration, the child feels rewarded and inwardly couldn’t be happier with the parent’s punishment. The WHITE child could easily remain in their room for hours. Punishment would be forcing them to engage in dialogue or interact with the family. A WHITE will often find themselves daydreaming or living out fantasies in their mind. They are very independent people who do not find it difficult to be alone within themselves in life. WHITES can sit with people on long drives and be completely comfortable with long silences while others crave some form of interaction. People often ask WHITES, "what’s wrong?!" while the WHITE is baffled by their discomfort with quiet connectedness. "Nothing’s wrong" they respond, but in their own mind they are thinking, "if you keep forcing me to interact because of your discomfort, THAT will create a problem for both of us."
Perhaps your greatest innate gift is kindness. Kindness is your trademark and you are often dismayed at how difficult it is for others to be kind to others. While you are not necessarily compassionate like the BLUES, they are not particularly kind like you. Compassion has an emotional derivative and kindness comes from a logical base. You have strong logical perspective and as such are very accepting of reasons why others may not share the same opinions on life as you do. You are exceptionally inviting of diversity and do not appreciate irrational rigidity in others. In your efforts to be kind to others, you often hold yourself back from offering your true feelings. Trust me, no matter how harsh you fantasize yourself to be when articulating your feelings; you do not come across the least bit unkind.
People need your wisdom and perspective. You need to speak to the issues because you offer tremendous clarity in your brief and unassuming way. Your egolessness is impressive as you do not need constant attention or even desire having the final word. Your modest, yet determined independence is without equal. People always appreciate your brevity when sharing your insights as well as your unassuming style in life.
You doubt yourself and suffer from a serious internal lack of confidence. Confidence comes from doing and you discover once you have done something that your innate fear was irrational which often frees you to more fully engage others and life. You are vulnerable to allowing others to determine your life experience simply as your way of "getting along", but you must trust your instincts and engage those people or ideas that challenge you to be your very best. Do not settle for less so as not to rock the boat in life. Your life is as important and deserves your internal commitment as much as allowing others to express their more insistent demands on you.
Like water, you flow over and around life’s challenges. You can be quietly, yet fiercely, independent. You prefer to experience life at your own pace and with your own unique style. You always bring the voice of reason and lack of personal bias to the human experience. You can be exceptionally talented at inventing things and find yourself fascinated within your own mind at the wonders of life. People challenges, on the other hand, can prove exasperating and less inviting than issue-based challenges. You are mostly very diplomatic in difficult relationships and provide a quiet solace for those with whom you interact. For you, less is more which can prove extremely difficult for you when others feel more (of you and your interaction) is preferable to your preference to share less.
Patience often wins the day for you as you enjoy a powerful sense of endurance. You do not need immediate gratification and willingly go the distance for the things you want. Your motto is "all things come to he who waits". Nobody can out wait you. Without much fanfare, you move through life with an innate beacon guiding you toward your own personal comfort zones which may lack the understanding of others because you don’t verbally share your intentions or personal preferences.
You embrace life with such an unflappable “even-tempered” approach. It can be quite awkward when you reach a boiling point after enduring too much for too long, and find yourself "blowing up" in exasperation at someone. After you share your emotional outburst, you retreat to your quiet solitude, having had your say and wanting no more discussion on the subject. Conflict in the moment is difficult for you, as is expressing yourself candidly, so you stuff ill will until it simply must be said as you have suffered enough.
People don’t know you easily but they find your gentle way easy to be around. You may be boring but you are never bored. You are indecisive (when was the last time you knew where you wanted to go eat?!) and tolerant of others. Your presence often lingers far longer than your immediate presence would indicate because of your kindness and acceptance of others. Enjoy your remarkable logic and know how refreshing your selflessness is in teaching all the colors just how little one really needs in order to be genuinely satisfied in life. Your driving core motive forms the essence of who you are. It is the innermost reason for your behavior and, therefore influences the way you see and interact with the world around you. Understanding your driving core motive is the key to getting yourself.
Quick Lesson on Motives:
1. Motives are the innermost reasons behind your behavior and form your innate personality. 2. Your driving core motive influences your behavior and acts as the lens through which you see the world. 3. Driving core motive is not linked to heredity or environment. 4. You have only one core personality, driven by one singular core motive, though; you may have strengths’ and limitations from more than one color.
Remember, as a WHITE, you are motivated by Peace. This is not referring to a political agenda or the absence of war. It is an absence of inner conflict, the idea of serenity, and an acceptance of oneself and others. There is a strong and compelling need to keep things in balance in your life, so as to maintain an internal feeling of tranquility and harmony. Every WHITE is different and unique. While you may not possess all the intricate nuances of the WHITE personality, all WHITES share the same driving core motive of PEACE, which determines how you see and interact with the world around you.
Only people with the same innate personality fully understand how central the driving core motive is to their very being. It is like breathing. It is innate and natural. No driving core motive is positive or negative in and of itself. Driving core motive simply reflects what is most crucial to every individual who shares the same color personality.
YOUR ROLE AS A light weight
As a WHITE you are considered to be a "light weight" among the personalities. Both WHITES and YELLOWS represent the personality light weights, defined as such for their constant refusal to be controlled by others. Simply stated, you do not care what others think is the best thing for you to do or way for you to live. Right or wrong, you want to make your own decision and live your life on your terms. In fact, light weights will even make "wrong" choices just to make a point to the REDS and BLUES that they refuse to be controlled.
Both heavy weights and light weights are critical to the balance of life. REDS and BLUES are classified as heavy weights sole because they spend their entire lives trying to control others. Remember that life is all about relationships. Your ability to understand the roles played by each color will greatly enhance or seriously sabotage your skill in building meaningful relationships with others. You will find yourself more successful by picking your battles and seeking other’s best interests, instead of denying the value of other’s influence in helping you make correct decisions. That said, you enjoy a quiet resolve to live your life independently and in your own unique style.
Relationships are more positive when each personality acknowledges their nature and works to enhance others as well as themselves. Neither is right or wrong. It’s more about motive and timing. For example, there are times when WHITES and YELLOWS would perform better allowing themselves to be controlled and REDS AND BLUES need to let go of their need to control and be right about how everyone needs to live their life. Both need each other. Both bring styles that enable them to survive in life and contribute to the well-being of others. You would do well to embrace the gifts that both light weights and heavy weights bring to the spectrum of relationships.
DO YOU HAVE A SECONDARY COLOR? -YES , blue….
You have a core WHITE motive with secondary BLUE. You enjoy a strong self-regulation, which allows you to control your emotions and hold a steady pace in life. You are typically well received by others who find you funny and pleasant to be around. You don’t challenge issues or people directly but prefer indirect communication. You have opinions but usually keep them to yourself. If necessary, you will tell a close peer your opinion and hope that he or she will carry the opinion further in order to impact a change. You are an unlikely candidate for challenging the status quo, especially if your opinion is in the minority.
You can be highly organized and efficient in how you deal with life. You think things through and willingly do whatever needs to be done in order to meet your goals. You lack leadership skills and often look to others to challenge you to "raise the bar." You are typically content with what life throws you and will "make do" with what you have. You have a high tolerance for pain and can endure difficulties far longer than most other personalities. Sometimes you will simply wait out the competition, winning by default, rather than having to face it head on.
You have a kindness about you that is highly accepting of others, but once you have been crossed you find it hard to open up to that individual again. You may accept an individual who has crossed you, but you will struggle to see him without the emotional scar he caused you in the past. You wish people would read your mind so you wouldn’t have to verbalize your concerns. You enjoy conversation easily unless there is tension or the dialogue becomes combative. In a combative situation you are quiet and simply wait while the others engage each other. You often think about what was said long after a conversation has ended.
You appreciate your independence but love a sense of belonging to a small, intimate group. You enjoy the blending of the WHITE traits of listening and clarity with the BLUE traits of quality and commitment. You don’t require much attention or public acknowledgement, but are highly appreciative when someone notices your contributions. You do not seek to be acknowledged on your own. Asking for a raise on the job would keep you awake for days, and even then you would, at most, make the request on paper rather than having to verbally engage your supervisor.
You like pleasing others, as long as you can maintain your autonomy to move at your own pace in life. When you are unable to navigate a relationship well, you withdraw and hope that things will get better without a direct confrontation. You are comfortable on the fringe rather than being the central focus and prefer to go through life as a participant rather than as a leader. Once you find your footing, you have a remarkable ability to set forth boundaries and expectations, which provides for a very positive and enjoyable environment.

You may or may not feel that you necessarily possess all of the needs and wants listed above. Therefore, cross out the needs and wants that don't quite seem to fit you, and circle the top two or three that you feel are most critical to you. Remember, even though there are only four major personality types, no two white are exactly alike. Needs and wants do tend to fluctuate somewhat from one person to the next, especially when a secondary color is present. It is a healthy practice to communicate your top needs and wants to those with whom you are interested in creating a more dynamic relationship.

WHY COLOR CODE YOUR LIFE ?
WHAT COLORS ARE IN YOUR LIFE?
Filters Impact Your Self-Expression
Despite the remarkable accuracy with which your driving core motive describes your personality, you will always remain uniquely yourself. Numerous "filters" affect self-expression within each of the four colors. For example, consider introversion versus extroversion. Some whiteS are introverted (their best energy comes from being alone) while other whiteS are more extroverted (their best energy comes during interaction with others).
