Dr. Taylor Hartman, himself a yellow with a good Blue wife helping him, discovered an amazing key to understanding people in a system called The Color Code. His book, The People Code is a great guide and has helped thousands. It is a new way to see yourself, your relationships, and life.
Check out our radio program on the basics of The Color Code.
We are both Color Code Trainers. We learned the value of The Color Code years ago. It saved our marriage and helped to understand our children better. Often when we work with someone they reply, "You've given me the secret code to understanding my spouse and children!" Once you understand people through really understanding their core motivation, you will never see people in the same way.
Dr. Hartman's Color Code Personality Assessment is the most accurate, comprehensive and usable test available. The Color Code is unique in that it identifies WHY you do what you do. This
allows you very useful insights into what makes you tick. But not only that - it gives you tools to understand all your relationships. Everything in life is about RELATIONSHIPS. One color is neither good nor bad. Relationships can be puzzling. This is a great tool to help put the pieces together.
Socrates said that the major task of life is to come to "know thyself". We do this by examining ourselves and learning our unique motivations, needs, wants, strengths, and yes even knowing our limitations. When we understand ourselves first, we can better understand how to successfully communicate and relate to others.
Many systems out there look at behavior modification and that barely touches the surface. Picture an iceberg. Only about 10% of the iceberg is visible above the water. This 10% represents the behavior. While 90% below the surface and the real danger for sinking ships is below the surface and represents motive. Your core motive is at the root.
Life is about personal responsibility and must take 100% responsibility for ourselves and all our relationships. We need 100% effort. We have free will coming from our core motive and personality to choose to create our lives and build character.
In order to live optimally, you need to meet your needs - your basic needs. When you understand your core motive - you can get your needs met. We can't survive without water or food - they are needs and they are essential. Without them, we will eventually die. We need to feed our personality - we can literally starve ourselves when our personality needs don't get met.
I'll spell out the ideal basic qualities of the different personalities, but when we don't understand ourselves we become reactive and may have learned to respond to life in a color that is not our innate personality and it creates bumps in our path and we may struggle with ourselves and our relationships.
REDS are the Lifeblood of humanity. They are the movers and shakers of society. They move forward from point A to B and get things done. They are natural leaders and have vision. REDS NEED: to look good, technically, to be right, to be respected, and approval from a select few. Click here to listen to our show on the REDS.
BLUES are the do-gooders. They are connecting and creating quality relationships and have a great sense of purpose. Their natural gifts are quality and service. BLUES NEED: to be good morally, to be understood, to be appreciated, to be accepted. Click here to listen to our show on the BLUES.
WHITES offer a model for gentle, human dignity. They are the peacekeepers. Their natural gifts are clarity and tolerance. WHITES NEED: to feel good inside, to be given space, to be respected and to be accepted. **Radio show coming soon.
YELLOWS, happy is as happy does. They generally know what they love and always find the time to do it. They are the fun lovers and live life "in the moment". Their natural gifts are enthusiasm and optimism. YELLOWS NEED: to look good socially, to be noticed, to be praised, and to receive approval from the masses. Click here to listen to our show on the YELLOWS.
Remember - no color is better than the others. We need a good balance - a rainbow. And the colors are not gender specific. It is actually divided 50/50. In other words, 50% of the Red population are women and 50% are women. There are however, statistically about 35% of the population that is blue, evenly mixed between men and women.
You can take the free test, get private one on one consultations or join us for classes. Sign up for our newsletter or send and email for more information on our Color Code Personality Coaching programs.
Many people have a strong single color like our daughter Angela, she is a yellow; while others have a secondary color that directly influences their primary motivation. Kally is a strong red, with yellow and that impacts her life. Mark is a blue for sure, but he is affected as well by his secondary color yellow and by his 3rd color red and his environment and how he was raised.
We can help you better understand yourself and your relationships. Click here to catch the overview of The Color Code on our Get Real! with Mark and Kally show on Your True Colours Image Radio.
