I recently did a personality test at work: the – apparently, very well-known and respected –four colour test.
Although everyone was doing it, I resisted it for a long time… because I’m a Taurus and, of course, we don’t believe in such mumbo jumbo.
But, the boss wanted the whole team to do it, and so I fell in line and completed the questionnaire.
The results put me firmly into the blue square, meaning broadly, that I am a Thinker and an Introvert. I’m task driven.
Fair enough. Sums me up fairly well, I think.
But then we dug into it a bit deeper and I hate to admit it, but I would say it got most of my character traits and key drivers correct – although I won’t go into them here.
Interestingly, most of the rest of the team were in the yellow square: Feeling and Extrovert. People driven.
Apparently, being diametrically opposite the blue square, the Yellows are my nemesis! Nemisi? Nemissesesses.
So, that should make for an interesting team dynamic!
