Personality Tests to Help You Shine

My day job is working for the largest employer in our city. We have close too 2,500 employees. Today I went to a training class where they did this personality test. Found it to be not only interesting, but also “spot on”. Apparently I’m not the only one that finds personality tests interesting, just look at the results for “Personality Tests” in Google. Amazing! Of course the thing about this and all personality tests for that matter, is they point out the many common traits we all share. One of my favorite quotes: “Remember your unique, just like everyone else.” Seriously though, I do believe understanding how I react to certain different personalities will make it easier to find a common ground, both in my day job & especially as I grow my home based business. So without any further ado, here we go:

Color Personality Tests

O.K. the thing you want to do is work across each row of four words horizontally. In the space next to the word place a 4, 3, 2, or a 1 with 4= most like you and 1= least like you. Each word across must have a different number. Take for instance the first line, my answers were 4 Cautious    3 Content   2Playful   1Risk Taker. Now it’s YOUR turn.

Now you have 4 columns with 4 totals. The column with the largest # is your dominant personality type, the second highest # is the next most influential personality trait. Now for the colors.
