What color are you?

My Mind is Blue
Of all the mind types, yours is
the most mellow.
You tend to be in a meditative state most of the time. You don't try to think away your troubles.
Your thoughts are realistic, fresh, and honest. You truly see things as how they are. You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about your friends, your surroundings, and your life.

What color is your mind?

Several years ago, while going through some leadership training my daughter told me about the personality colors and told me that I was very blue. She wasn't. I don't remember what color she was, but I am sure it was daring and glamorous. Perhaps she will comment and tell us about it. Still, though, I was surprised when this quiz tagged me as a blue--not sure what the answers should have been to make me more daring and glamorous.

It kind of reminds me of when my daughters took a quiz on what House they would be sorted into at Hogwarts. Both of them turned out to be Slytherins much to their dismay and despite their wish to be Gryffindor. I was a Hufflepuff. Hufflepuffs are probably Blue.

Your Mind is Purple. Of all the mind types, yours is the most idealistic. You tend to think wild, amazing thoughts. Your dreams and fantasies are intense. Your thoughts are creative, inventive, and without boundaries. You tend to spend a lot of time thinking of fictional people and places - or a very different life for yourself. Hummm, I'm not completely sure the analysis is right on the mark. At my age most of the idealism has been hammered into stark reality.


If one's mind is purple (what a surprise the coroner will get, if my body is sent to his/her office for an autopsy after I die), does that means one's prose is therefore purple?

I recall writing a paper in college about "yellow journalism," but never heard the phrase "purple prose" until someone mentioned it at a writers gathering. Purple prose, purple brain--one should be avoided, the other ain't so bad!

Way too much fun Beth! I'm an "orange", here is what it says about me, it seems accurate.

Of all the mind types, yours is the quickest.
You are usually thinking a mile a minute, and you could be thinking about anything at all.
Your thoughts are often scattered and random - but they're also a lot of fun!

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about esoteric subjects, the meaning of life, and pop culture.

I was 100% GREEN which is basically the know it alls who are never wrong and think everyone else is stupid. Literally 100%.... my next closest was like being 30% Orange.

Of all the mind types, yours has the most balance.
You are able to see all sides to most problems and are a good problem solver.
You need time to work out your thoughts, but you don't get stuck in bad thinking patterns.

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about the future, philosophy, and relationships (both personal and intellectual).

It seems that I have very colorful friends and family! I love Daughter Sara's description of green--you can imagine how difficult it might have been to parent a green child like that--maybe it takes a blue mom to raise a green kid.
