What is your Color? 4 Main Personality Types

Updated on October 19, 2014

4 Main Personality Types. What is Your Color?

Ever wonder why some people are so easy for you to connect with while others seem to be so difficult? We all are very different but we are usually one of 4 main personality types. Wouldn't it be cool if you could learn how to figure out someones personality right away. Then you could talk to that person the way they like to be talked to.

Color to Success by Michael Dlouhy , teaches you to spot a person's personality type within 2 minutes of talking to them. You learn how to peak their interest, how to build a relationship.

This skills training provides you with a method you can use to determine the personality of the person you're speaking with so you can make the best possible connection with that person. This is useful in both your personal life and your networking business.

Colors Of Success

You may be thinking..."How can this Color's Training help me?"

Part of the reason I was failing in MLM is because I was talking to people the way that I like to be talked to. You see I am a blue. Read on and you will learn more about the blues, but we are real easy to figure out. We are the ones who are always talking. LOL!

Michael's training taught me how to listen for the color of the person who I was talking to. Guess what? It is hard to listen when your talking. So I had to learn to listen to the other person. Then, once I was able to determine the color of the person I was talking to, I could then talk to them the way they like to be talked to.

For example...In the past, when I was on the phone with a "green", I would automatically think that they were not serious or maybe a little bit of a pain. They would talk slow and want lots and lots of information. Now I know when I am on the phone with a "green" I need to slow down. Yes, us "blues" like to talk really fast. But I would slow down and really listen. I discovered the more I listened to people the more they opened up to me and the more they trusted me. So now with the greens, I listen and I give them tons and tons of information because that is what they want.

Michael's Color's Training is almost like a secret language. If you are in Network Marketing this is a training you don't want to miss.

"The Big Key - You Learn How To Listen"

Here's how Michael discribes the Yellow

Yellow: open and indirect

If the person does NOT consistently demonstrate more concern for others than for themselves, they are not Yellow.

35% of People are Yellows

Michael explains how to mentor a Yellow

Now the person who comes up is casually dressed. They have Birkenstock sandals on, and blue jeans. Very casual. This is a comfortable person. They walk at a slower pace. They have an easy smile.

And they say "Mentor me!"

"OK. Here's what I know about you. You are an amazing person. All your friends think you are the greatest listener they've ever known. You are dependable. You're very patient. And you're nurturing. You love people, and you're a team player. You have some outstanding strengths.

There are some problems you need to work on. You're oversensitive. You take things personally. You always conform. You'll buy other people's excuses. And You don't ever set goals. You're not goal-oriented.

So for me to help you, coach you, mentor you, I'd get You to understand how to not take things personally.

Here is how Michael discribes the Blue

Blue: open and direct

If the person is NOT a social animal, craving almost constant contact with people, they are not Blue.

15% of people are Blue

Michael explaines how to mentor a blue

This person walks up, and you see flamboyant facial expressions, hand movements, body movements, arms moving, maybe a Hawaiian shirt. Something bright & flashy - jewelry, gold, a diamond ring, gold necklace. Anything flashy, a lot of movement, excited, excited, excited.

And they say "Mentor me!"

"OK. The reason you are so successful in life and in business is that you are an excellent promoter. You're energetic, enthusiastic, motivating, convincing. You always see the big picture. You're the life of the party, and You're one of the most creative people on the planet.

You can create it, but you can't build it. Your problem is, you are unorganized. You're scattered. You've never balanced a checkbook in your life.

The first thing I'd do in mentoring you would be to help You start using systems to keep yourself organized. Then you won't be so scattered. And you can focus on your followup. That can change Your life overnight.

Here's how Michael discribes the Green

Green: self-contained and indirect

If the person is NOT analytical, always wanting more and more information about whatever it is they're interested in, they are not Green.

35% of People are Green

Michael explaines how to mentor a Green

A gentleman walked up and stopped. He read the big banner. His arms were crossed. He had a shirt with a breast pocket, pen in the pocket. He wore khaki green pants, a crease down the middle where they'd been ironed, and penny loafers.

He looked at me and ordered, "Mentor me!"

"If I was to be coaching you, I'd start working on Your weaknesses. Your weaknesses are that you overanalyze everything. You've lost a ton of money because of your inability to make a decision. You'll sit there and think about it, think about it, analyze it, wonder why you shouldn't do it, why the glass is half empty.

"You have a problem with depression - you easily get depressed. You have a problem with loneliness. And you're very pessimistic.

"But it's amazing how many strengths You have. You're one of the most organized people. You are an amazing planner. You're a dependable problem solver. You are task persistent. You are amazing on follow through. And everything you do is accurate.

"But the problem you've struggled with your whole life is being pessimistic about everything. You have no belief that You will ever be a huge success in life. You're always looking at why it's not going to work. You think, 'It'll work for everybody else, but it's not going to work for me.'

"You use a lot of words like try, maybe, could, possibly, we'll see.

"And what I would do to coach you is to help you realize that You have to learn to be decisive. You have to learn to go with it, be tuned in to your gut feeling and go with it.

"The words you speak are critical, because you speak Your reality into existence. When you say negative things, you are actually putting those things into Your life. That's exactly what you do. And that's why You're so unhappy."

Here is how Michael Discribes a Red

Red: self-contained and direct

If the person does NOT consistently talk about themselves and their achievements, then they are not Red.

15% of people are Red

Michael explains how to mentor a Red

This section is purely hypothetical, because Red would NEVER ask anyone to mentor them. And if you try, they won't pay any attention to you because they are Red.

"It's my way or the highway!"

So most Reds are not open to any coaching, even one little bit. Only when life has totally knocked them for a loop, then they may open up a bit to coaching.

Let's say you're dealing with THAT person. Here's what you say: "You have great strengths. You are an amazing producer. You are the best negotiator. You have energy to burn. You are a risktaker, a leader. You have confidence. You take action. And You're independent. You'll just take right off and start doing it.

But there are problems, too. The first thing you need help with is your ego. You think you're perfect. You think you're always right. You think you're the only one with an idea. But you're not.

You are domineering. You are short-tempered. And the biggest problem you have is, You are just unteachable. The only time you can ever learn from anyone else is when you've had your butt kicked, when you're down on the ground, down on your knees, and you reach up your hand. When you finally get there, THEN You are coachable.

The biggest thing that would make a huge difference in Your life is to understand the other personalities. They all have great value, equal to yours, and you don't realize that.

This will totally change Your life. But the fact is, you'll probably never do it - because you are Red."

      How many times have I been told that I think too much? However I am a glass half full person, not a glass half empty one. Green, definitely green. And yeah, I want to know more about this.

      I think I need to take a SquidQuiz to determine what true color I am -- I vacillate from Purple to Red to Fuchsia.

      It seems like I'm part yellow, part blue, but more towards blue. As I was reading it, I was trying to figure out other people's colors. It's much easier to analyze other people's colors than your own! Great work, very interesting.

      I'd say green, because I truly believe you can never have enough information... hence I never make a firm decision on anything. I am always waiting until I get more information.

      Hi, noticed you in Tipi's guest book and got curious (I'm Tipi's sister). A few years back the company I worked with had a training session on the colors--it sure is interesting how this type of thing works. I also visited your 10 pounds in 2 weeks and Controlling your Blood Sugar lenses, but couldn't leave messages as I'm not a member but enjoy looking in from outside. I sure like your intention to live life to the fullest--good for you!

      I always thought of myself as a green person, but the analysis doesn't fit. I'm not a red but I'm too quiet to be a blue.

      I'm stuck. Does that mean I'm purple?

      Great lens
