Green: 11

Gold: 10

Orange: 8

Blue: 7

Pretty accurate on getting the high level outside picture. Except my problems with others seem to be more stemming from typical blue weaknesses. Maybe I manage my main weaknesses and those are in my blind spot?

I am green. What I find interesting is that most of us are blue or green which is intuitive on the myers briggs.  Yellow and orange are sensors on the meyers briggs. Sensors I think i recall take things factually-e.g. my BPD lies and cheats. Maybe that's why they're less likely to be involved with BPDs, they see what they do factually and say forget this hit_. Whereas intuitives look more for the potential rather than what actually exisits. Can someone more familiar with myers briggs comment on this?

I'd just like to note that if I had taken this test a couple of years ago, my colors would probably have been a little more evenly distributed.  I know I would have answered many questions differently (I definitely would have answered "yes" to the question about analyzing the questions!).  I would probably have had a lot more gold and orange, and a little more green.  Today, I am heavily skewed to the blue.

That's not a good or bad thing - just an interesting observation of how your personality/outlook/behaviors can change over the years and with different experiences.

What's also interesting is I tested ESTJ on the Myers-Briggs several years ago... .and there it is in the Gold section!  I was close to ENTJ on the Myers-Briggs and today when I did the test I was definitely more gold, but Green was a close 2nd for me (I can't remember but by maybe 2 pts).

So far it seems to be fairly accurate.  Doing the right thing (click to insert in post)

Hmmm, very interesting. I took this again and got a pretty different result:

Or - 11

Gr - 10

Bl - 9

Gl - 6

I think I will take this again in a couple days and see what I get.

Interesting that the majority of us are either blue or green.

Fun thread!
