A Color A Day: Achromatic Colors: Were you BROWN?

This is the last of our color choices in A Color A Day.  Next week I will begin revealing what the color combinations (Primary + Secondary + Achromatic) say about your personality.  Because there are so many, I will only be listing those who have posted their combinations.  So, if you haven't listed your color combinations yet, be sure to list them in the Acromatic Color Choice blog

This blog is for those who chose brown.  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 achromatic colors and notice which one you are drawn to.....

Key Words:  Aware, Authentic, Compassionate

Power:  To understand Reality

Motivation:  To experience the sensations of life

"You are down-to-earth.  By recognizing your superficial aspects, you become authentic.  For the most part you do not believe in an afterlife, divine judgement, or cruel fate.  Things just exist.  Everything else is vanity.  You are able to weigh all the available options, thinking twice before making a decision.  Others might see you as intuitive.  But in reality you are simply free of illusions and well aware of the consequences of your actions.

You prefer to live in the moment and appreciate the pleasures of life.  You are inspired by the charms of the world.  The more you experience your environment, the more you express yourself.  Doing is existing.  Activity makes you feel more complete.  You are constantly looking for new sensations to spice up your life."


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!

I agree with everything except that I do believe in an afterlife, and that things happen for a reason.  Maybe this was because I went back and forth between the black and brown, but really felt my eye drawn more to the brown.  I'll have to see what black says, maybe I'm a bit of both.

You had me at hello, but with brown... you lost me.  I am a person of great faith.  Previously it's been dead on... this .... so far off it's not even anyone I know.

Dito for me as well as I definitely believe in Divine Judgment and of course : karma!  but the rest of it was right on the nose!

Now that I read black & white:  my first intuition was right, I'm definitely a "brown"
