Leaders are learners.
I enjoy learning more about how God created me and to look beneath the surface of who I am and why I do what I do. This also allows me to examine my strengths and weaknesses as a leader. One way I engage in this introspective process is by using personality tests and other assessments. A personality test that I have found helpful is the color personality test. Unlike those “Facebook style personality tests” that we all see, this one is pretty good and from my experiences pretty reliable.
The Color Code Personality Assessment is a comprehensive and easy to use personality test. The Color Code not only identifies what you do but why you do it, allowing you to gain much deeper and more useful insights into what makes you and those around you tick. It can be helpful if you’d like to improve a relationship with anyone in your life or just get to know yourself a little better!
Here is an overview of the types of colorful personalities that this assessment defines:
- Need to look good technically, be right, and be respected. They are strong leaders and love challenges.
- Need to have integrity and be appreciated. They are focused on quality and creating strong relationships.
- Need to be accepted and treated with kindness. They are logical, objective, and tolerant of others.
- Need to be noticed and have fun. They love life, social connections, and being positive and spontaneous.
While I can see aspects of myself in each of the colors above my results show more of my strengths and weaknesses in my primary color as a red personality.

They like to be in the driver’s seat and willingly pay the price to be in a leadership role. reds value whatever gets them ahead in life, whether it be in their careers, school endeavors, or personal life.

Reds like to be right. They value approval from others for their intelligence and practical approach to life, and want to be respected for it. Reds are confident, proactive, and visionary; and but can also be arrogant, selfish, and insensitive.
This basic assessment like the results shown above is free and I have no vested interest in this or directing people toward it other than helping others learn more about themselves like I enjoy to do. If interested here is a link.
