What is True Colors and What Can it Do For You?
True Colors™ is a model for understanding yourself and others based on your personality temperament. The colors of Blue, Green, Gold and Orange are used to differentiate the four central personality styles of True Colors™.
The assessment is based on the premise that everyone has a combination of these True Colors that comprises our personality spectrum, with at least one dominant system. Identifying your own personality and other’s characteristics using True Colors provides insights into different motivations, actions, and communication approaches.
True Colors is effective because it is based on true principles and easy to remember and use, in all kinds of circumstances, from personal relationships to professional success.
“Successful people know who they are and what their True Colors are… when you know what your core values and needs are and feel good about them, you can perform at your highest potential in every area of life. And when you share a working, mutual understanding of others’ core values and needs, you have the basis to communicate, motivate, and achieve common goals with utmost dignity, efficacy, and mutual respect.”
A Brief History of True Colors
The theory behind True Colors can be traced back to when Hippocrates (460BC) identified four different temperaments of humans: Sanguine, Choleric, Phlegmatic, and the Melancholic… and in Plato’s (428BC) ideas about character and personality.
In 1978, founder Don Lowry further developed the personality concepts he studied and was the first to apply the color metaphors of Blue, Gold, Green and Orange to the four temperaments, coining this methodology: True Colors.
