personality tendencies, both good and bad. Dawn L. Billings

There are six color personality tendencies represented in the Primary Colors Relationship Personality Tests and Insight Tools. The top three colors in your color blend describe you in any given emotional or life context and impacts how you handle relationships, process information, communicate, and perceive events and situations in your world.

People who take the Primary Colors Relationship Personality Tests focusing on different life and emotional contexts may find that their color blends (their top three colors in any given context) differ depending on the context they are thinking about at the time they take the tests.

What Does Your Primary Colors Personality Color Blend Reveal About You?

Unlike so many other colors personality tests that use four random colors as their base descriptors, Primary Colors Relationship Personality Test uses all six colors on the artists color wheel. The artist color wheel has been used by artists for thousands of years as they blended colors in order to attempt to recreate everything they could see or imagine.

Dawn Billings, the author and architect of the Primary Colors Relationship Personality Tests and Insight Tools chose to use this color wheel (and its six colors that we all learn in early childhood, Red, Yellow, and Blue, Orange, Purple and Green) as a base metaphor to help her explain complicated human behavior that works and doesn't work in life and in relationships.

Each color on the personality color wheel represents unique personality tendencies, both centered and extreme, that describe and categorize people's behavior, choices, attitudes and emotional tendencies. If you would like to learn in detail about your personality color blend you can take the tests on your phone, tablet or computer and your results will remain in your account for you to refer to whenever you might like.

Below we will share very brief descriptions of the CENTERED color personality tendencies for each of the six colors of the Primary Colors Personality tests. Centered tendencies represent what is best about us. If you want to learn the difference between centered and extreme color personality tendencies, you will enjoy the article written specifically to help you understand.
