Reds are the power wielders of the world. Power is not good and it is not bad, it just is. It has to do with movement, (moving from A to B). Power sometimes carries a negative connotation but where positive characteristics of Reds are concerned, it drives them to high levels of productivity and efficiency. Reds boldly move forward with logic, vision and determination. These qualities make them natural born leaders, as they make things happen by sheer force of will. From a Red perspective, emotion has little to do with accomplishing a task.
Strengths Visionary Insight into the future Independent Swift decision makers Goal oriented Capable High expectationsLimitations Lack subtlety Tactless Insensitive Demanding Lack Compassion High expectations
Blues are motivated by Intimacy. Without their natural talent to insist on quality and to provide service, our world would be a far less pleasant place. Blues want to connect and to be understood and appreciated. If they are not connecting with you, if they are not plugged into humanity, then what’s the point? They believe if you don’t have a sincere connection in life, then there really is no other value. Earning money, having the Mercedes, and being in the windowed office are nice but do not represent a purposeful life to a blue. Blues are very purposeful people who love to serve and give of themselves freely to nurture others lives. They are loyal friends, employers and employees, and their personal code of ethics is very strong. They expect other people to live honest and committed lives as well. Blues are dependable, thoughtful, and analytical; but they can also be self-righteous, worry-prone, and moody. They hold on and never let go of something/someone once they are committed.
Strengths Observant & Intuitive Compassionate Notice quality and detail Strong sense of purpose Involved Loyal Caring Committed employees and friends Commitment to learn, become self-aware, and to be their bestLimitations Ruled by emotions Want love and acceptance from others but struggle to love and accept themselves Remember their own weaknesses, rather than strengths Tend to struggle more with depression
Motivated by Peace, Whites will do almost anything to avoid confrontation and to create tranquility. They have a remarkable ability to understand and draw objective conclusions—they are the voice of reason, and this is their gift to us. Whites truly believe that with patience all things come to those who wait. The problem is that they are sometimes too content with sitting around waiting. They seek contentment more than power, money or, for that matter, more than friends. They are happy having one or two good friends and one or two hobbies. In fact, they tend to have only one hobby at a time. Instead of trying to carry on with two hobbies, they will drop one to take on another. Having two is too much effort. Their only demands from life are the things that make them feel comfortable. That feeling fosters their need to feel good inside.
Strengths Kind Considerate Patient Accepting Not judgmental or critical of others Tactful Self-Control Good listenersLimitations Hide their feelings Unwilling to set goals Resist working at another’s pace Self-deprecating Uncomfortable with praise
Yellows are motivated by Fun. Without their natural talents of enthusiasm and optimism, the world would be a boring place for all. They are here to have a great time. Yellows have an innate ability to be happy. They believe it is okay to play and people who don’t understand this have limited minds. They are the people who get up in the morning and sing to the Bon Jovi tune, ―Until I’m six feet under, baby I don’t need a bed. Gonna live while I’m alive–—I’ll sleep when I’m dead.‖ Yellows love to enjoy life. They have a mental attitude that allows them to appreciate what they have rather than be miserable over what they don’t . They spend much of their time charming everyone in an entertaining way. Robin Williams is a good example. Can you imagine growing up as his child? What a fun dad. He has that child-like innocence and a hope that inspires the masses.
Strengths Love to be around people Others love to be around them Positive energy Optimistic Enthusiastic Playful Avoid risk Persuasive Spontaneous EntertainersLimitations Lack commitment for success Believe the best, even when their ship is sinking Can be self-centered Willing to blow off plans if something better comes along Lack deep friendships
