The Personality Assessment Test was presented to me for the first time as a Life Coach student. At age 50! I remember thinking, “if this had been presented in middle school, it would have saved quite a few psychiatrist visits for so many people!” Truth be told, it would probably have saved a lot of marriages, as well as prevented those that didn’t need to take place at all. As a mother, it explains why I need to take a different approach towards both sons! They couldn’t be more different and all three of us have different personality color codes, which makes for an exciting adventure when we all get together! As an employee, it could have saved a lot of frustration in the workplace! I’ve decided to share this personality assessment test in hopes that it can save relationships with those we love (or have no choice to interact with!), but still want to slap each and every time we come into contact with them!
The Color Code is the most revolutionary and ACCURATE measurement of your personality available on the market today. Once you have learned the Color Code you will never see yourself or others the same again! The Color Code is your best bet for understanding how to make sense out of life’s relationship puzzles.
ANSWERS TO COMMON QUESTIONS
Regarding answer selection when taking the profile: Obviously not every question on the profile is going to be totally applicable to every person, but that is taken into consideration in the scoring of the profile. Hopefully for most of the questions there is one answer with which you identify the strongest–that is the answer you should choose. Normally your gut instinct is correct. If there are two choices you find yourself conflicted over, that’s normal. It could be that you have a secondary color (which you would learn more about in the Comprehensive Analysis), or it could be that you have developed or learned one of the traits, while the other comes naturally to you. We are looking for the one that comes naturally to you. In trying to identify your Driving Core Motive, we want to know your natural/innate strengths and limitations, not your learned/developed ones. We would advise you to choose the answer that feels most NATURAL to you, even if you also identify with some of the other choices.
On some questions you may find that none of the choices really speak to you. Again, not every question is going to have a perfect answer for every person–we factor that in when we score the profile results. Pick the choice that feels the MOST like you, even if you hardly identify with it. As long as this is happening on just a handful of questions, it shouldn’t affect your results.
Regarding answering the questions from your childhood perspective: The Color Code Personality Model is motive-based. Most other popular personality assessments are behavior-based. The difference between the two is that the Color Code goes deeper–it explains why you do what you do (motive) rather than just identifying what it is that you do (behavior).
The Color Code theory is that each of us has a Driving Core Motive–the reason why we do everything we do in life. Our Driving Core Motives are innate–they came with us at birth. That is why we advise you to take the profile from your earliest childhood memories of yourself; the theory being that is when you were truest to your Driving Core Motive, before outside influences began affecting your behaviors.
For most people, their “childhood self” is the easiest way to identify how they naturally are. The profile is designed to be taken from the earliest recollections you have of yourself. The idea is for you to complete the profile considering yourself before you were influenced by outside factors. We want to identify what your personality was before you felt pressure to be a certain way, learned to value some characteristics more than others, etc. For most people, the easiest way to do that is to think of themselves as a child–before they were really aware of their personalities. If you had a difficult time answering from your childhood perspective, we would recommend that you answer thinking of yourself at a time when you’ve been most comfortable with yourself–when you felt you were being truest to yourself, instead of acting how outside influences wanted you to act. When answering the questions, think about your very most natural, innate, gut instinct–what would you do if nothing from the outside were influencing your decision.
