True Colors is a self-awareness activity enabling individuals to become aware of their personality styles. True Colors is a team-builder helping members to understand the preferred styles of their colleagues.
3 Points to Remember Each color is reflective of your personality. You will identify a primary and secondary color. These are your preferred styles. The colors you do not choose will have some characteristics that are representative of you; however, it is not your preferred style. True Colors is valuable for improving your effectiveness in working with others; however, as a short, self-report assessment it is not 100% accurate.

5 The Four True Colors Blue Relationship Oriented Gold Structure Oriented Green Cognitive Oriented Orange Impulse Oriented
6 Blue I need to feel unique and authentic Enthusiastic, Sympathetic, Personal I look for meaning and significance in life Warm, Communicative, Compassionate I need to contribute, to encourage, and to care Idealistic, Spiritual, Sincere I value integrity and unity in relationships Peaceful, Flexible, Imaginative I am a natural romantic, a poet, a nurturer
7 BLUES...at work I have a strong desire to influence others so they may lead more significant lives. I often work in the arts, communication, education, and helping professions. I am adept at motivating and interacting with others.
8 BLUES...in relationships I seek harmonious relationships. I am a true romantic and believe in drama, warmth, and empathy to all relationships. I enjoy the symbols of romance such as flowers, candlelight, and music and cherish the small gestures of affection.
9 BLUES...in childhood I was extremely imaginative and found it difficult to fit into the structure of school life. I reacted with great sensitivity to discordance or rejection and sought recognition. I responded to encouragement rather than competition.
10 Gold I need to follow rules and respect authority Loyal, Dependable, Prepared I have a strong sense of what is right and wrong in life Thorough, Sensible, Punctual I need to be useful and belong Faithful, Stable, Organized I value home, family, and tradition Caring, Concerned, Concrete I am a natural preserver, a parent, a helper
11 GOLDS...at work I provide stability and can maintain organization. My ability to handle details and to work hard make me the backbone of many organizations. I believe that work comes before play, even if I must work overtime to complete the task.
12 GOLDS...in relationships I am serious and tend to have traditional, conservative views of both love and marriage. I enjoy others who can work along with me, building secure, predictable relationships together. I demonstrate admiration through the practical things I do for the ones I love.
13 GOLDS...in childhood I wanted to follow the rules and regulations of the school. I understood and respected authority and was comfortable with academic routine. I was the easiest of all types of children to adapt to the education system.
14 Greens I seek knowledge and understanding Analytical, Global, Conceptual I live by my own standards Cool, Calm, Collected I need explanation and answers Inventive, Logical, Perfectionistic I value intelligence, insight, fairness, and justice Abstract, Hypothetical, Investigative I am a natural non-conformist, a visionary, a problem solver
15 GREENS...at work I am conceptual and an independent thinker. For me, work is play. I am drawn to constant challenge in careers, and like to develop models, explore ideas, or build systems to satisfy my need to deal with innovation. Once I have perfected an idea, I prefer to move on, leaving the project to be maintained and supported by others.
16 GREENS...in relationships I prefer to let my head rule my heart. I dislike repetition, so it is difficult for me to continuously express feeling. I believe that once feelings are stated, they are obvious to others. I am uneasy when my emotions control me; I want to establish a relationship, leave it to maintain itself, and turn my energies to my studies, work or other interests.
17 GREENS...in childhood I appeared to be older than my years and focused on my greater interests, achieving in subjects that were mentally stimulating. I was impatient with drill and routine, questioned authority, and found it necessary to respect teachers before I could learn from them.
18 Orange I act on a moment's notice Witty, Charming, Spontaneous I consider life a game, here and now Impulsive, Generous, Impactful I need fun, variety, stimulation, and excitement Optimistic, Eager, Bold I value skill, resourcefulness, and courage Physical, Immediate, Fraternal I am a natural trouble shooter, a performer, a competitor
19 ORANGES...at work I am bored and restless with jobs that are routine and structured. I am satisfied in careers that allow me independence and freedom, while utilizing my physical coordination and my love of tools. I view any kind of tool as an extension of myself. I am a natural performer.
20 ORANGES...in relationships I seek a relationship with shared activities and interests. I like to explore new ways to energize the relationship. In a relationship, I need to be bold and thrive on physical contact. I enjoy giving extravagant gifts that bring obvious pleasure to special people in my life.
21 ORANGES...in childhood Of all types of children, I had the most difficult time fitting into academic routine. I learned by doing and experiencing rather than by listening and reading. I needed physical involvement in the learning process and was motivated by my own natural competitive nature and sense of fun.
