am i blue?

oh how i love a good quiz!
i found this one through another blog
which is where i find all of my information these days it seems;)

you answer all of the questions according to how you were as a child
it is very interesting
& i almost cried a couple of times
thinking back to that little girl...
motivating hmmm?
go cry your eyes out!

anyway here's what it said about me
i am a yellow
which coincidently is my favorite color

YELLOWS are motivated by FUN. They are inviting and embrace life as a party that they're hosting. They love playful interaction and can be extremely sociable. They are highly persuasive and seek instant gratification. YELLOWS need to be adored and praised. While YELLOWS are carefree, they are sensitive and highly alert to others' agendas to control them. YELLOWS typically carry within themselves the gift of a good heart.

YELLOWS need to look good socially, and friendships command a high priority in their lives. YELLOWS are happy, articulate, engaging of others and crave adventure. Easily distracted, they can never sit still for long. They embrace each day in the "present tense" and choose people who, like themselves, enjoy a curious nature. YELLOWS are charismatic, spontaneous, and positive; but can also be irresponsible, obnoxious, and forgetful. When others interact with you, as a YELLOW you respond to them best if they take a positive, upbeat approach and promote light-hearted, creative, and fun interactions with you.

i think this is a pretty good description of me, actually
but i always wonder if these are like horiscopes...
when i see the horoscope page i do one of three things
1) turn the page
2) read mine & think 'huh. that's good advice'
3) read any other one & think 'huh. that's good advice'

if you are feeling motivated
go do it
it's interesting
& after you do it
they direct you to a page where you can pay like $168
to find out more about your color
ohhh i'm tempted...


have a lovely day
from your irresponsible, obnoxious, and forgetful friend,
emily ruth:)

(do you think it says something about me
that i decided to sign off highlighting the worst traits described in my profile?
hmmmm armchair therapists discuss.....)

Actualy, those are the only parts that AREN"T like you! I think that is you *perfectly*!!

PS I also knew you in middle school, and even then you weren't obnoxious!!

so i took the quiz...very interesting...

I am blue. It is totally me.

And I would have to guess that M is white. But I will have him take the quiz himself to see. What would be interesting is to read about how colors interact with each other in friendships, marriages, etc.



Well no big surprise that I am also a blue. Sometimes I think it would be fun to be a yellow...to know what it is like to be carefree. You will have to tell me about it sometime.

this was really interesting...I might have Mr. W take it and see what he is.

I am glad to see that I am in great company as a blue....it is totally me, but I like to think that as I have "aged" that I have been able to incorporate some of the good things in the other colors as well!!! Hooray--hooray for you too Em...for lots of stuff!

Colleen said...

Well, I'm a whitey. This was interesting to do!

I tried this test even though no personality test ever works for me - i am just too wierd. i wanted a none of the above option for about 90 percent of the questions.

I came out a yellow.

I think yellow must mean wishy-washy. (Sorry Em and Rachael.) When I took the quiz my answers were all over the board and I got YELLOW. So I am wondering if it is truly indicative of my personality or if it is just the color assigned to people like me who are terribly indecisive. Probably a little of both.

By the way, I was hoping for GREEN. There is no GREEN in the test but it is my favorite color right now. Can I say I'm GREEN anyway?
