Gain a deeper understanding of your emotional needs, unique strengths, and more in this beautiful guide that categorizes the 4 personality types by color: Red, Orange, Yellow, and Green.
The role that color plays in our lives is far more powerful than most of us may imagine. Color influences all aspects of who we are, both internally and externally. In the human energy system, color serves as a vital communication link that reflects what is happening within all four layers of energy: spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical.
 
Here, Carol Ritberger, Ph.D., has matched colors that represent the four personality types:
Red Personality Types: sensing, thinking in their functioning; their orientation is through external stimuli

Orange Personality Types: sensing, feeling in their functioning; their orientation is through fulfilling the emotional needs of others.

Yellow Personality Types: intuitive, thinking in their functioning; their core mental function is right-left brain, and they are good problem solvers.

Green Personality Types: intuitive, feeling in their functioning; their orientation to the world is toward people and the need for relationships
 
What Color Is Your Personality will teach you how color and personality characteristics go together—and how you can find out which color you and your friends are!
