A Color A Day: Were you a YELLOW?

I'm so impressed with the number of people who responded to my blog, A Color A Day - Your first lesson, actually more like a game.....  With over 120 responses, it's clear that people LOVE color!! 

This blog is for those who chose yellow.  In case you don't remember, it wasn't about this being your favorite color.  It was about being the color your eye was uncontrollably drawn to.  If you picked it because it was 'your favorite color' this may not apply to you.  Go back and look at the three primary colors and notice which one you are drawn to.....

This was the least chosen color of the three....

Stagers who chose this color (please forgive any misspellings, my handwriting is not great!):  Sheridan Corrie, Kate Hart, Michelle Pimentel, and Carole Provenzale

Agents who chose this color:  Danielle, Patty Carroll, Sandy Fenton, Charles Stallions, Barbara Morley, Marcia Kramarz, Sandy Gleason, Paula Ryan, Janet Guilbault, Rita Burke, Roland Woodworth, Regina Butcher and Deborah Ryman

So.... What does your choice of YELLOW say about you?

Key Words:  Realistic, Diplomatic, Giving

Power:  Wisdom to know what is needed

Motivation: Personal Growth

"Finding common ground is the game you play best.  You calm troubled situations, bridge differences.  Your awareness of others' perspecitives allows you to express contrary, unpopular feelings without offending anyone.  By keeping people listening, you allow solutions and possibilities to unfold.

In one on one situations you manage to see and understand the other person's point of view.  You accept what others need without imposing your own will or agenda.  You accept people for who they are.  You have a knack for keeping the conversation flowing and know precisely where to focus your energy.  In groups you keep to yourself; unlike the blues, you keep your energy.

Your a team player and enjoy the supportive role, for example, the person behind the president.  You are flexible.  Since you are not a control freak or power hungry, you're able to focus on the task at hand.  You deal with the present and don't dwell on the past or obsessively plan for the future.  You tend to be spiritual and life supporting."


This information is based on the book by Dewey Sadka, Embrace the Hue you are.  You can also learn more information about your color selections (main colors and color combinations) and how they relate to your business and professional life by picking up the book or taking a Dewey Color Course. 

Dewey Sadka profile: With his intuitive people skills and motivational ability, he created a multi-patented system that is now the world's first scientifically valid, color-based personality test.

Why you should know about color: 

When a person surrounds themselves with their preferred colors, they are in fact subconsciously encouraging their hopes and aspirations. Non-preferred colors irritatingly give them the courage to see what they have a tendency to avoid.

Classes begin in Charleston, SC January 2009!
