Choose Your Colors!

So I was reading in one of my favorite magazines today (second only to US Weekly...I know, it's trash, but I'm hooked), Where Women Create, and came across a fun little sidebar in the article about The Paper Source:

"...our 'Colorscope' is also about coordinating colors– and then learning how those colors reflect your personality. Our founder Sue felt that a person’s favorite colors revealed something interesting about them, and thus was born the Colorscope. Try it, pick out your two favorites...and read what they tell you about yourself. Just as I’m wowed by how our colors work together, I’m blown away by how my favorites really speak to who I am."

How fun is this, right?  I mean, I know, it's kind of like rubbing a Magic Eight Ball or picking Lotto numbers based on what your fortune cookie reads, but I can't help myself!  When it comes to mini-quizes, personality-tests, or any other type of prediction game, I'm in!  (Remember that game MASH?  Where's my Lamborghini, 6 kids, Mansion, and husband Patrick Swayze?)

So, you can imagine how thrilled I was to come across one of these "pick it and your universe will unfold before you"  things from such a reliable source as The Paper Source!  Why not join in the fun with me?!

Here're the Descriptions
(Because it can be too tiny to read!)

You enjoy life and good health to the fullest. Be careful of those around you, your personal power and financial success can overwhelm them.

Grand adventures are part of who you are. You are assertive with powerful energy. People feel like they are your close friends moments after they have met you. You explore the inner meaning of life.

Finding a balance and creating a nurturing environment is important to you. You also love to be needed.

You are so good at making decisions. You have great strength and conviction in your beliefs. People have a hard time figuring you out, but can always count on you for a crazy adventure.

You listen carefully to everyone around you but really listen for information and details, not emotions. You have amazing logic. You need to find refuge–a place for yourself. P.S. You are also a flirt.

You are a dedicated party person who hides your sensitive and sentimental side. Although you are pessimistic about your personal dreams, you are incredibly skilled at innovation. You are fearless in your dress and put together the most unusual combinations.

A great champion of the helpless and defender of the underdog, you have an amazing ability to get things done, as well as to fix things.

You are very lucky with opportunities appearing like magic. You are an enchanter, attracting people to you. You are open and enthusiastic.

Curious, enthusiastic and easily stimulated, you are a magnet for opportunity and every new idea. Be careful not to over stimulate yourself, but learn to focus.

You know who you are and what you want. Popularity, money and power are all yours. You are kind and generous to your friends. You love to have fun at parties, especially if you are in charge. You are also a perfectionist and you state your opinions boldly.

Courageous and passionate, you have a playful side that balances your serious and spiritual nature. You are confident and not afraid to take action. Remember that the journey is often more important than the outcome of your endeavors.

You are inspirational. You are sympathetic and empathetic. People love to be around you because you make them feel important.

You are able to gently say the things that your friends need to hear. You have a lovely smile but you need to smile much more often. You are too serious and you need to be more tolerant of failure–both in yourself and in others.

Your appearance is amazing–you always know what looks good on you. You are charming, concerned with the reaction of others and find balance in life. When in a bad mood you may have the tendency to see only the negative.

You are intuitive and have the extraordinary ability to find the center of things. You can predict the future and have a fabulous sense of fashion. You are a great advisor to your friends.

Friends know that you are the shoulder to cry on. With inexhaustible energy, you are a great team builder. Love relationships are very important, but usually you are the more supportive and unappreciated half.

You are traditional and reserved on the surface, yet you are a renegade at heart. Your demeanor is steadfast and mysterious. Popularity is not important to you,–which makes you all the more enticing to others.

You are very attractive, talkative and have beautiful, expressive eyes. One of your greatest assets is your sincere love for those around you. You are in touch with your emotions and help others get in touch with theirs.

You are the one that everyone should ask for advice because you stay objective and don't get petty. You need space and like opinions, especially in love relationships.

You have a classic style, are a romantic, easy to love, and people find you appealing. Some may think of you as quiet, but you are really thinking deeply about what is going on around you, and then coming up with the perfect solution.

You are down to earth, comfortable with who you are and have a great ability to find joy in life. You don't take things personally, you rebound from failure, and go for what you want.

As an activist you have the power to change the world. Both admired and loved as a friend, you must learn to appreciate both yourself and what you have accomplished.

Pressure stimulates you and you like setting goals for yourself. You are exciting, curious and are great at parties. You surround yourself with lots of unusual people and have loose boundaries.

Committed to making the world a better place, you have strong faith and a calming effect on your friends.

You are highly emotional and very loyal to your friends. You are disciplined, an overachiever and very serious. You have a keen understanding of the past and are aware of why things happen the way they do.

Though for me it was VERY difficult to choose only two "favorites" (I'm a color-junkie), I chose leaf and strawberry, though lake and fuschia were near tie-breakers!  What were your two favorite colors?  Do they accurately describe you?  Please share with me! 


  1. What a great posting! I pink Leaf and Fuschia! I suppose it is a description of a part of me, or my spirit. I do strive for balance, It's one of my main concerns at the moment, as a matter of fact! Suzie

  2. Well, you know me and my color issues. Couldn't do it... two that is. I picked eight and couldn't find a way around it. I'll tell you about them on Wednesday.

  3. This is so cool! I chose blossom and bluebell...hmmmm.
