Unexplained Behaviors Explained? (3) By Dr. Michael Brooks
This week, I want to break down the four personalities (in colors) for you, so we have a foundation to work with. The other three color personalities summarized in colors are Blue, Yellow, and White. The Red personality is based on power. There are healthy and unhealthy traits to those that are considered Red. Here are a few of Red’s complex personality traits.
- They are extremely active and highly productive
- They are visionaries
- They can be insensitive and selfish
- They can be demanding and critical
- Must be right all the time
- Competitive and bold
- Tenacious and taxing
- Assertive and determined
- Resourceful and self-reliant
- Relentless and impatient
- Calculating and manipulative
- Lacks intimacy in a relationship
Do you know of anyone who has these traits, maybe you, a friend, a co-worker, even a family member? Wouldn’t you like to figure out how to live, or work, with the person who may be a red Colorcode personality? I’m sure you would. My goal is to get you to see how Reds think, what makes them act the way they do, and why!
Reds have a way of making things happen in the business world. They are power wielders, they live on facts and figures. You need to present issues logically to them. When speaking with a red, you should be direct, brief, and specific. When speaking with a red, articulate your feelings clearly, don’t beat around the bush. Support their leadership instincts and correct decisions. If you learn how to work with them, life will be so much easier for you.
Reds are the most difficult to work with and live without of all the colors. I have many of my clients who are married to a red personality, and many of the marriages have ended in divorce. The unhealthy red personalities lack real communication and often try to browbeat spouses into submission by personal attacks on a spouse’s character. The guilt an unhealthy red uses on partners, family members, and co-workers can be unrelenting at times.
The Colorcode designed by Taylor Hartman is Unlike other personality tests, The Color Code not only identifies what you do but why you do it, allowing you to gain much deeper and more useful insights into what makes you and those around you tick. Each of the four colors: Red (power), Blue (intimacy), Yellow (fun), and White (peace), stands for a collection of traits, strengths, and limitations. You can have one dominant color with traces of the three other colors in your colorcode personality. If you would like to take the free colorcode test and see what your primary color is, you can do so by going to colorcode.com click on the free test; once you take it, read what color your primary color is. The book is “The People Code” by Taylor Hartman, a great read and really gets into how the colors interact with each other. I highly recommend that you get this book.
