Your Personality Style as a blue
As a BLUE, your greatest desire is to love someone and be loved in return. For you, life is far more about relationships and meaning than about creating empires, riches, and fame. You may even sacrifice a successful career move in favor if improving an important personal relationship. You are highly gifted in nurturing, mentoring, and developing others. You see the world predominately in terms of personal connections and relationships. You crave integrity and quality in both personal and professional aspects of your life. You are committed to emotional depth and substance in your life and interaction with others.
You crave being understood and will go to extreme measures to encourage others to know you and understand why you think and behave as you do. You feel gratified when others listen to the details of your day. You are notorious for your emotional candor and willingness to share—even to the tune of publicly revealing your inadequacies—because you value being known and feeling connected. In your eyes, being vulnerable is a small price to pay for the chance to connect emotionally. Your heart may be broken more often than others’ because of your depth, but you also experience life more richly.
As a BLUE, you are thoughtful and care for others well-being. Selflessness (versus selfishness) is your guiding philosophy. You prefer doing for others more than solely for yourself. You actually look for opportunities to give up something in order to bring happiness to others. You may, for instance, hold doors open for people, offer a ride when someone’s car breaks down, contribute to charities, or devote your entire life to helping others.
You need to be appreciated. With most BLUES, a simple pat on the back will not suffice. You expend such great effort in making the world a better place that you often need to be told and shown how much you are appreciated for your thoughtful gestures and what a difference you make in others’ lives. You may feel somewhat awkward receiving praise, but always enjoy knowing at the end of the day that you truly are a wonderful human being and made a tremendous contribution. Sometimes you need this because you are so tough on yourself internally. You are "hard-to-please" because despite your amazing care-giving and genuine commitment to bless the lives of others, you have unrealistically high expectations for yourself and others. You appreciate a sincere thank you, especially when linked to something or someone you value or have tried to assist. The key word here is "sincere." Anything less than genuine sincerity feels hollow and fails to resonate with you intuitively.
For you, life is best experienced with personal connections. You delight in being remembered on your birthday and on other special days, particularly if the remembrance is something personal. You need to care for others and have people in your life that care about you. Your life is measured more in quality and substance than in superficial friendships and material possessions. Only when you have been hurt too deeply will you abandon your vulnerability to people and your own personal development. BLUES are highly resilient despite their intense emotions. They enjoy a remarkable intuition and uncanny sixth sense for reading others’ legitimacy. In life, they cherish those who have mentored them as well as those they have been honored to mentor. In the end, not much more matters to BLUES.
As a BLUE, you tend to behave in a proper, appropriate manner. You have a personal moral code that guides you in your decision-making, value judgments, and your leisure time. You actually enjoy "being good." Of all the colors, you come best equipped with a strong sense of integrity. You would rather lose than cheat and are very trustworthy. If leadership were solely a function of ethics, you would always be in a position of power.
For you, loyalty is unquestionable. You thrive in committed relationships and can be counted on to perform your duties. You often exceed others’ expectations in your job performance because the quality of your work is indicative of your loyalty to your family, business associates, friends and self. Quality is critical to you and you struggle when others ask you to "cut corners" or produce an inferior product. You are highly dependable, often exceeding the hours expected in order to complete assignments.
Your middle name could be empathy. When others share an experience with you, you are right there with them emotionally. You want the details. People often comment on how easy it is to open up to you because of how caring you are and your depth of understanding for them. Feeling compassion for others is not a difficult stretch, regardless of your own limited life experiences. You tend to remember feelings and thoughts shared in conversation and you selflessly allow conversations time to run their course. You frequently invite deep and intimate conversation.
Of course, as with all gifts, there can be a dark side. With your great sensitivity comes your need for others to care when you share yourself. You have a tendency to personalize comments and actions of others when you feel they are insensitive. You are notorious for getting caught up in emotional "spin cycles." When you are unable to get a grip on your emotions, you should seek rational insight and advice from your more logical friends.
You are very exact in your work and find details an important aspect of your daily routine. It frustrates you when others refuse to take the time to be properly organized and live life on your "higher plane." You like to do the work "right" and can struggle with delegating to others who may not share your same enthusiasm for quality. You willingly sacrifice personal time in order to stick with a project until it is completed according to your specifications. Only then can you let it go and enjoy yourself without worry. Learning to delegate will be one of your life challenges. Embrace it early so you can breathe easier and enjoy life more abundantly.
One of the more interesting paradoxes you exude comes in your tremendous sense of organization and attention to detail, while being strongly driven by your emotions. You are deeply emotional, as opposed to logical, but because of your tremendous analytical skills you often err in thinking of yourself as logical versus emotional. At your core, you are ruled by your heart—unless you foolishly cut off your "gut instincts" because of previous life trauma from personal relationships. Even then, your logical orientation becomes merely a mask hiding the true depth of your remarkable emotional aptitude.
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:
Remember, as a BLUE, you are motivated by Intimacy. Intimacy means legitimate emotional connection. BLUES will often sacrifice a great deal of time, effort, and/or personal convenience to develop and maintain meaningful relationships throughout their lives.
While you may not possess all the intricate nuances of the BLUE personality, all BLUES share the same driving core motive of INTIMACY, which determines how you see and interact with the world around you. Whether you are 51% BLUE or 95% BLUE, your driving core motivation is to share and connect intimately and meaningfully with others. 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 heavy weight
As a BLUE, you are acknowledged to be a "heavyweight" among the personalities. Both BLUES and REDS represent the personality heavy weights, defined as such for their constant desire to control others. Simply stated, you want things your way because you feel that your way is best for everyone involved. While you are often intuitively accurate, your desire to control others goes against man’s inherent desires for free choice in their lives. Ironically, your greatest nemeses for control are REDS who also think they know what is best for everyone.
REDS are, however, more pragmatic and willing to negotiate than you but they always insist they know best at the beginning. Only after you become immovable based on moral and emotional grounds will they consider alternative approaches.
Both heavy weights and light weights are critical to the balance of life. WHITES and YELLOWS are classified as lightweights solely because they spend their lives refusing to be controlled. They don’t want to spend the energy controlling others, but they definitely don’t appreciate others spending their energy trying to control them. 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 others’ best interests instead of demanding that your way be the way for everyone concerned. That said, your natural sense of integrity and fairness will play a vital role in facilitating successful relationships.
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 is more about motive and timing. For example, there are times when REDS and BLUES need to let go of control and WHITES and YELLOWS could perform better allowing themselves to be controlled. Heavy weights and light weights reflect the balance of nature by bringing opposite perspectives. Both need each other. Both bring styles that enable them to personally survive in life and contribute to the well-being of others. You would do well to embrace the gifts that both heavy weights and light weights bring to the spectrum of relationships.
DO YOU HAVE A SECONDARY COLOR? -YES , white….
It is essential to your life effectiveness that you embrace the powerful gifts of your driving core motive, and recognize that while you always have the ability to enhance it by developing new dimensions of yourself; you can never change it, or become another color.
It is possible, however, for people to have a secondary color that influences the way that they go about life. While the influence of a secondary color can be strong, it is still not nearly as significant as your driving core motive. Think of it as though your driving core motive is like breathing, while a secondary color is like walking. Walking certainly is a very important element of people's lives, but not nearly as critical as breathing.
Your results indicate that you have a WHITE secondary personality by nature. There and disadvantages to this. The major advantage is that people with a strong secondary color can naturally work to develop character in the positive traits of that color. In your case, you should pursue the development of the strengths of the WHITE personality, as they will make you even more effective as a person. The disadvantage of possessing a secondary color is the challenge it presents to being true to your blue core personality as you may send mixed signals. One moment you will act blue while another moment you will act WHITE. This behavior can confuse people and make it difficult for them to know how you will react to any given situation. In other words, you may appear to be more inconsistent than would a purist, or someone who does not possess a strong secondary color.
As a blue with WHITE you will find that you have a mixture of the natural needs and wants typical of both the blue and WHITE personalities. The following table lists the needs and wants of both:
People like you. They find you easy to be with and can tell that you have legitimacy and kindness. Your strength is rarely offsetting to others who find you personable but never pushy, interested but never demanding, quiet but never boring. It is a wonderful complementary blend of emotion and logic. You can empathize easily with people, yet seldom move into heavy judgment or criticism. You like being with others but find your own company equally easy to enjoy.
You have a keen intuition and can sense what others are feeling or thinking while engaging them in conversation. You reach out to people up, down, and across an organization with relative ease and typically strike a strong balance between sharing and listening. You enjoy the WHITE gift of egolessness and therefore can laugh at yourself (although you most certainly will be embarrassed!) and often allow others to have the last word. You speak to the issues but enjoy hearing how others feel about any given topic.
You seek life at a more relaxed pace; in that you let others stand in the limelight and don’t find high risk a particularly enjoyable venture. You can subjugate your needs for those who may be more demanding, but always seem to find the time and the opportunity for self-expression when it is necessary. You are less disappointed than many BLUES or emotionally ignored like many WHITES.
Your personality combination enables you to move fluidly through life with remarkable ease. You seek more gregarious and intense individuals socially and find them to be a positive force in creating options for you. You usually keep your self-doubts to yourself but freely reveal them when asked. You have difficult speaking your mind in combative circumstances but remain solid in your beliefs regardless of others’ expressed viewpoints to the contrary; nonetheless, you are open to changing your perspective when provided meaningful data or compelling insights.
You value intimacy deeply but may allow some opportunities to pass if it requires intense conflict. You choose your battles carefully and won’t force issues when you deem it unnecessary. People find you to be honest and committed, but may have to ask you about specific issues to know where you stand. You are not particularly interested in gossip, especially when it is hurtful. Sometimes you speak your mind while other times you remain silent, depending on what you deem worthy of pursuing.
You are often surprised at your life and work success because you rarely give yourself the credit you deserve. You see your limitations much more candidly than your strengths. While others are enjoying your gifts, you are often wishing you were better. You are often remembered for your solid unflappable nature. People find you to always be a welcome addition in any situation. You generally complete your commitments, while forgiving others who may neglect to complete theirs. Typically you enjoy the best aspects of both the BLUE and the WHITE personality gifts.
|Your NEEDS as a BLUE||Your WANTS as a BLUE|
to reveal insecurities
to enjoy security
to be autonomous
to please others
to be morally good
to be appreciated
to be understood
to receive acceptance
|Your NEEDS as a White||Your WANTS as a White|
to feel good(inside)
to be allowed your own space
to be respected
to feel tolerance from others
to withhold insecurities
to be treated with kindness
to have independence
to enjoy contentment
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 blue 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 blueS are introverted (their best energy comes from being alone) while other blueS are more extroverted (their best energy comes during interaction with others).
