INSTRUCTIONS


Below you will find the four components that make up your Color Q personality style.

  1. Scroll down to Component #1. For each line choose BETWEEN the 2 statements in the left or right column. Choose the phrase that most accurately describes you.

  2. There are no right or wrong answers. Both columns are equally valuable and may be used at different times and in different situations. Respond as your "WEEKEND" self, i.e. the way you are when away from the office, with your family, friends or even alone at home. Do not answer as others expect you to be. Choose as your preference for one option over the other - no matter how slight the preference is.

  3. Add up your checkmarks and be sure to click either the "Left Column" or "Right Column" button for each of the Components 1 to 4.
