Understanding True Colors®
Colour has been used to shape and describe our lives, our habits, our values, and our feelings throughout the ages.
Research into the physiological effects of colour has shown that it truly has an impact on our lives, often in unconscious and mysterious ways. Colour can relieve tension and stress.
Blue, for instance, is associated with tranquil surroundings. Thus, it is fitting that colour provides the “association” between a temperament type and learning tools.
How much better it is to refer to and connect with colour than with the highly technical formulas, symbols, words, and numbers generally associated with temperament/personality/learning theory.
After reviewing the research data, colours for True Colors® were chosen for their direct association with the psychological and physiological needs of people.

Green expresses itself psychologically as human will in operation: as persistence and determination.
Green is an expression of firmness and consistency. Its strength can lead to a resistance to change if it is not proven that the change will work or is logically thought through. Those with Green as a Primary Colour value their intellect and capabilities above all else. Comfort in these areas creates a sense of personal security and self-esteem.
Green characteristics seek to increase the certainty of their own values through being assertive and requiring differences from others in intellectual areas. They are not usually physically demonstrative, since they depend upon information rather than feelings to create a sense of well-being. Green expresses the grounding of theory and data in its practical applications and creative constructs.
