Don Lowry , an educator - studied under Keirsey and immediately saw the potential for temperament theory to be applied in schools, business, and for everyday individuals to gain a deeper understanding of themselves. His genius was to assign each temperament an easy to remember color (Blue, Green, Gold, and Orange), simplified much of the complicated psychological language, and introduced the concept of a persons Color Spectrum – that we each have all of the temperaments within us, yet each person has a unique color order including how intensely each color “shines”. Don called this system “True Colors”, and it quickly became popular as it is easy to learn, remember, and immediately applicable.
