Before you begin to read this lengthy collection of thoughts, just let me forewarn you that I am Canadian, but this book is American, so my mind was discombobulated and my consistency in spelling the word as either colour or color may be lacking I tried my best, but I can't be bothered to go back and check I decided to read this after reading George J Boelcke's Colorful Personalities, which is a similar take on what is presented in this book There are some differences, though.In Boelcke's book, there are four colours: Gold, Green, Blue, and Orange To break it up really, really, really simply, Gold people are black white, traditional, and extremely organized, Green people are very smart, love research, and are inexpressive emotionally, Blue people are compassionate and emotional, and Orange people are adventureseeking, expressive and always looking for a good time Boelcke says that we each have all of the colours to some measure, but we mostly operate in our two highest colours I am Gold/Green, according to the test outlined in his book.Now, in Taylor Hartman's book, four colours are presented as well: Red, White, Blue, Yellow I quickly realized as I started reading that I had to discard my previous notions of colour profiling, and stop trying to line up the colours from the two books The only colours that really line up are Yellow and Orange, and Blue and Blue (and there are still differences between Boelcke's and Hartman's Blues).In his book, Hartman tells us that each colour is impelled by a different core motive: Red desires power, White desires peace, Blue desires intimacy, and Yellow desires fun.I really wasn't sure that I agreed with a lot of the stuff when I started reading, but I decided to keep going and just take it all with a grain of salt Some it was explained, and some of it I just don't take very seriously I've taken the test three times now, twice online and once from the book, and I've gotten Red twice and Blue one time I don't know that I agree that personality is innate, and I really found it hard to answer the questions from a childhood pointofview I don't really remember how I responded to certain things as a child, I don't think I act the same way that I did when I was a child, and I think that's why I got differing answers when I took the testthan once I believe, after reading the rest of the book, that I'm probably Red with a high secondary Blue I think that part of my confusion about my personality comes from the fact that my mom is most likely Blue, my dad is probably White, and my sister is Yellow, so I've grown up learning how to respond to a rainbow of colours I know I've consciously practised what Hartman would call Blue personality traits, such as sensitivity and compassion, and I related to a lot of White traits as well I haven't practised Yellow traits as much which is probably the biggest source of contention between my sister and I! She is openminded and adventurous, and I'm not as much that way I tend to want to control everything.Another reason there was confusion for me was that you have to pay very close attention, read between the lines, and figure out what Hartman means when he uses certain words or phrases For example, I didn't initially connect at all to any of the descriptions of the personalities Reds come off as belligerent, unemotional control freaks, Blues are perfectionistic, overemotional and sensitive, White people are lazy and noncommittal, and Yellows are directionless rebels that can't focus their lives I really didn't connect at first to the Red power motive As time went on, I began to realize that I think what he meant by power wasa description of a desire to control He also said that Reds are very vocal I'm not a very vocal person unless I know you well or feel very strongly about something BUT, I'm introverted, and I don't think I've ever had a a platform to to really practice Red traits I do know that when I'm in a situation where I've been alone and/or had to take charge of running something, I act like a Red person I also grew up with certain people saying I was extremely controlling, I could confront friends if I felt their behaviour was unacceptable, and I got called a drill sergeant a few times throughout my life One thing I thought was pretty ridiculous was Hartman's statement where he declares that if people want to get married without first taking the color quiz and determining their compatibility, it's their funeral I'm paraphrasing, of course, but to me that statement has almost zero merit People have been getting married, working together, building friendships and getting along for thousands and thousands of years without the Color Code, and they will continue to do so for as long as there's human relationships to be had Yes, I believe that when applied correctly, it can help ease major tensions between people who don't understand one another, and it's probably saved many marriages and other relationships, but let's not overstate its importance here.I really believe the most important statement was made near the end of the book I've had to send the book back to the library so I don't have it here to quote exactly, but it addressed the biggest problem I had before I started learning about personality profiling Hartman basically says that the Color Code should never be used to limit another person or pigeonhole them, and you should never use it to justify your own limitations I've known people who, when they've found out their color, decided to just say This is who I am, I'm never changing, and screw you if you have a problem with it It's unhealthy, it destroys relationships, and it's just wrong to respond that way Just because I'm Red doesn't mean I shouldn't constantly be working towards being a compassionate, open person, or that I shouldn't work on my Yellow traits so that I understand where my sister is coming from.Ultimately, it's an interesting concept, but take it with a grain of salt Make sure you read and understand everything, and don't just pick and choose what parts you're going to listen to, i.e don't learn your colour and decide that everybody else needs to work around you Start building your character so you can work well with everyone. The Color Code is one of the very few books that I've read covertocover multiple times It's a fantastic read, unfortunately I have found that the majority of people who claim to have taken the test either skip the instructions and take it incorrectly and/or misinterpret the results because they failed to grasp concepts which are critical to understanding the theory and your results.It's okay I did the same thing at first.In fact I would say that it wasn't until I had read the book twice, covertocover, that I was able to fully embrace and understand the color code in its entirety This is because there are a number of easily overlooked concepts and examples sprinkled throughout the book which I found crucial to recognizing how the color code applies in a variety of situations and relationships.Too often, people flip to the quiz, don't read the instructions, answer the questions, then skip to their color's chapter without reading the rest of the book Then they attack the theory for being too simplistic, inaccurate, not accounting for change in personality over time, or trying to pigeonhole people into particular boxes These individuals either haven't read the entire book or failed to understand it.On the other side of the spectrum, you have those who love their result and then use it as an excuse for not developing their personality or working on their weaknesses.All of these are issues that are specifically addressed in the book; in particular, make sure that you fully understand the role of secondary colors in providing a uniquely nuanced personality, including weaknesses and strengths from other colors (Chapter 9), and the role of character in developing your personality as you age (Chapter 4).All that being said, this is a great book which helped me to understand my extremely complicated (Blue/Red) personality and the inner conflict I so frequently experience in swinging between the extreme opposites of compassion and indifference, altruism and selfishness, timidity and boldness I've had a number of psychological profiles presented to me, but this is the only one that was able to help me understand WHY I'm so conflicted and how to better manage that conflict This is the only one that actually told me who I am My advice? Read it carefully Twice.Then start changing yourself, your relationships, and your life for the better. Such a fascinating book! I loved learning about this in my Student Success class You learn about four main personality types; Red, Blue, White, and Yellow and what they're main motives are It helps you better understand those around you and why they make the choices they do Because of this you can help grow your relationships, have better workmanship and helps in deciding a career choice I'd highly recommend this book if you're looking for a new way to look at the world around you:) I was reading this book when I started dating Tony! I loved it I totally gave him the color code quizit was awesome I think that's what really made him think I was the one ;) My favorite color is purple My college colors, by lucky coincidence, happened to be purple and gold Though I didn’t pick it because of its colors, my sorority happened to use purple, green, and silver My onetime pseudonym on the internet, murasaki, means purple When a friend suggested I read The Color Code , I was hoping to find my personality cast as a Purple Unfortunately, Taylor Hartman limits his categorization of personality to four colors: Red, Blue, White and Yellow Not a single splash of purple.Forget your astrological sign, that you were born in the year of the dragon, even the MeyersBriggs personality profile The Color Code is a simpler and better way to determine one’s own personality and the personalities of the people around us Hartman theorizes that personality is innate, is a code of behavior and consists of four basic personality types determined by one’s overriding motivation in life Every personality type has good characteristics and every personality type has limitations.SetUpThe book has four parts: Personality in Perspective, The Colors, The Color Connections, and Building Character Part I, Personality in Perspective, takes the reader through a 45question quiz to determine one’s personality “color.” The first thirty questions of the quiz are lists of four qualities per question The reader must choose the quality among the four qualities for the one that best describes them An example of one question is:a) demanding b) unforgivingc) unmotivatedd) vainThe remaining fifteen questions cover reactions to situations such as: For me, life is most meaningful when it a) is taskoriented and productive.b) is filled with people and purpose.c) is free of pressure and stress.d) allows me to be playful, lighthearted and optimistic.Part I also explores the core motives behind the personalities and the behaviors they tend to exhibit In Part II, The Colors, Hartman goes in depth through each color, listing strengths and limitations in bullet format as well as discussing certain characteristics Hartman explains how a personality type tends to act as an individual, as a child, as a parent, in their careers, and muchI find the lists serve well as a quick reference guide when attempting to identify the personalitycolor of someone I know In this section, Hartman also addresses secondary colors or personality types Most people who have dominant characteristics of one personality type are rather easy to identify People who have a strong secondary color or “mixed” personality are a littledifficult to identify but still have a core motive Hartman also acknowledges that, sometimes, outside influences also make it difficult to correctly identify a personality type such as theological or cultural biases, abuse, or an autocratic family life “where express attitudes and behaviors were determined solely by one or both parents” (p 134) Part III explores the dynamics of relationships between various colors (a Red personality with Blue personality, Yellow with White, Blue with Blue, etc.) Hartman delves into conflicts created by opposing personality characteristics as well as how some of these opposing characteristics can complement each other He also states up front that while some color combinations may beconflicted than others, all combinations can have successful relationships (whether professional or personal) and offers ways of dealing with the various personality types Hartman does this in essay format and with lists for quick reference.Part IV discusses characterbuilding Hartman believes that each person, with their good and limiting traits (he’s very careful to never say “bad” characteristics or “weaknesses”), can become a charactered personality that incorporates good characteristics from each of the personality types and replaces a limitation from one’s core personality Hartman goes into some life principles that he believes are necessary for achieving a charactered personality such as “Charactered people actively love themselves and others” and “We must stretch and risk personal discomfort in order to make alien attitudes and behaviors become natural.” Hartman also discusses the role of free will in changing an innate personality and emphasizes that one’s color (and core motive) should never be used as an excuse for one’s shortcomings However, among my friends that have read this book, knowing one another’s colors has helped us to beaccepting of each other and not take someone’s shortcomings personally When one friend flaked out on going out with the group one evening we could attribute it to “she’s just being Yellow” and enjoy our evening without worrying about her The ColorsAfter taking the quiz and identifying one’s core motive, the reader is in for some brutal truths about themself Each personality has good, limiting, and downright ugly characteristics that are not easy to own up to possessing I am a mixed personality so I received a double dose of nastytasting medicine to swallow However, I’ve kept you in suspense long enough Red : The main motive for a Red personality is power Reds want to be in control They tend to be good, productive leaders that are also selfish and insensitive to the needs of others Blue : The core motive for a Blue personality is intimacy Blues want to love and be loved by others They tend to be nurturing and altruistic but also perfectionistic and controlling White : The primary motive for a White personality is peace Whites want harmony and peace and for everyone to just get along While Whites are amiable and diplomatic, they tend to be lazy and bottle up grievances until they explode Yellow : The core motive for a Yellow personality is fun Yellows want life to be fun and exciting While Yellows tend to be the life of the party and easy going, they are also irresponsible and emotionally shallow.What if I’m a Purple?I am a mixed personality: Blue is my dominant color along with the core motive of intimacy Red is a close second with the core motive of power When I took the Hartman Personality Profile quiz, my answers were 24 Blue traits, 20 Red traits, 0 White traits, and 1 Yellow trait Hartman states unequivocally, “The most difficult color combination within one individual is the mixture of Red and Blue.” The reason a BlueRed combination is such a difficult personality is that the Red and Blue core motives are in direct conflict The example Hartman used is that a BlueRed will delegate a task and be cutthroat about getting the job done (Red characteristic), only to feel guilty about it later (Blue characteristic) Hartman discusses some characteristics of mixed personalities BlueWhites and RedYellows are the most comfortable blends BlueYellows and RedWhites tend to vacillate between core motives from one moment to the next WhiteYellows have good people skills My main gripe with this book is that not enough time is devoted to the topic of mixed personalities Though I can read the sections on Blues and Reds to get a general idea, and the characteristics of each often apply to me, I would have likedinformation about dealing with other mixed personalities (such as my husband who is a WhiteBlue) The way I have naturally compensated for my mixed personality is I’m primarily a Red in my profession, in which Red characteristics are admired and encouraged, and I’m a Blue in my personal relationships, where commitment and sharing feelings arecritical All the Colors of the RainbowHartman believes that each of us, no matter our core motive(s), should strive to be a rainbow by becoming acharactered person who replaces our limitations with the best traits of other colors I heartily agree, and reading this book can help one do that I have gained insights into the personalities of people in my life, becometolerant of their innate personality flaws and discovered how to deal with them in ways that areempowering for them and gratifying for me without being manipulative The Color Code is an interesting read and has something for everyone, even if you’re a Purple. Another good perspective on personalities My favorite part was at the end where he talked about our natural personalities but how we should all strive to develop character, which is having the best traits I am still a toss up on which color I am Most likely I'm blue with a lot of red. Folk psychology at its worst.Agressive poeple are really pushy? Wow thanks for that one captian obvious!Truth be told I couldn't stomach finishing this filth Pigeonholing billions of individualities into four basic, color coded, types is the most stupid and irresponsible things i have ever heard of.The next person who says I'm a red personality, with a little bit of yellow in there! is going to get punched in the face!I guess that makes me a RED!! Durrr! Within the genre of personality assessments this book is possibly the best in the breed I really appreciate the effort of the author to keep his readers down to earth in their approach to his book He admits that just because you are primarily one color, doesn't mean that you don't or can't have traits from all colors Although the test included in the book is designed to determine your innate personality, he suggests using the new found selfawareness as a spring board for the development of desired positive traits, as well as handling and/or overcoming undesirable traits In a nutshell, the author endeavors to put responsibility and control of self into the hands of the reader, instead of giving them excuses or scapegoats This aspect of the book is of course only to be had if one actually reads it instead of using as a reference guide.
