Unexplained Behaviors Explained? (12)

By Dr. Michael Brooks

We will continue this week’s article on the whites in the colorcode, the peacemakers in your life.

My one friend, who is a white, doesn’t show much emotion; he holds his feelings in and guarded. You really never know what he is thinking. He doesn’t trust very many people. My wife is a white, and I will ask her what she is feeling, as whites are very quiet and keep to themselves. I’ve learned over the years that it’s best to let them speak when they are ready and she is fine with that, and since my secondary color is white, I totally get that!

I think out of all the colors in the colorcode; whites are the kindest people, they love people, animals, and good memories. They see no value in seeing people mistreated. If they see that happening and you are unkind to a white, you will probably lose them as a friend. They will not respect the person who is being unkind. One of Dr. Hartman’s examples in his book is about the four colors and how they respond to Dr. Hartman calling out someone talking in his seminar; of course, this is done for the audience to see how reds, blues, yellows, and whites react. Which one are you? Let’s see how you would respond. When speaking to large audiences, Dr. Hartman is speaking about the whites when he suddenly challenges a participant to stop talking and pay attention. Of course, there is no one talking, but he loves to use it as an example of how each of the personalities reacts. The reds are thinking, “what do you care about who is talking? You’ve got the microphone; simply get on with your speech!” The blues are thinking, “Who was talking? That is terribly inappropriate. I wonder who it was.” The yellows are thinking, “I was talking, and he didn’t catch me!” But the whites are thinking, “I don’t like Dr. Hartman calling someone out like that in public. That was rude and unnecessary!” Remember, whites are kind people, and they place no value in seeing people mistreated. Which one were you, were you the red, blue, yellow or white?

Why is it that many people consider whites to be lazy? Getting up my white personality daughter in the morning is no easy task. She was in no hurry whatsoever. She handles life as it comes to her, on her terms. I’ve told her that she needs to accomplish her goals and not wait for them to come to her. I promise you she is in no way lazy.

Have you figured out if you know anyone that has this personality? Next week we will continue on the color white.

Unexplained Behaviors Explained? (11)

By Dr. Michael Brooks

This week, we will continue on the personality color of white. Have you noticed anyone in your family or at work that lives for peace and harmony? Let’s see.

I had a client of mine who’s wife had asked him to remove his books and files he placed on their pool table. They had been there for several months. She asked him over and over again to remove the mess off the pool table. One Saturday morning, she went into their home office and asked him one more time, “please remove your stuff off the pool table.”  He said he would get to it but was busy at the moment. A minute later, she walked into his office with a stack of books, magazines, file folders, raised them over her head, and slammed them on his office floor, and walked out of his office. He was stunned, shocked as his wife was a quiet, soft-spoken white. He sat there in disbelief and stared at the mess on the floor. Five minutes later, she walked back into his office and apologized for her behavior. That’s another thing whites will do, apologize for their actions, knowing it was wrong.

As my secondary color is white, I can tell you that whites, for the most part, hate being in leadership positions. I know I don’t like being out in front and leading things. I have overcome that fear and will do it from time to time. The hang-up with whites is we fear when in any leadership position, we’ll make the wrong decisions, so we avoid having any responsibilities. For the most part, whites don’t say much, but they’re always observing those around them. Whites listen well and remember things being said. If you talk negatively about someone they know and like, they will remember what you said and not forget; whites don’t like someone talking about others. They will avoid you because you have given them a reason not to trust you.

Whites don’t take life seriously; they meander through life as casual lost souls. Getting a white to do something can be draining, it can be hard sometimes. My one friend is never in a hurry; he will frustrate others who may be in a hurry. Whites can be very forgetful too. They may forget to bring lunch to work; they may fail to pick-up a friend for a movie or errands. A big one is that they fail to return phone calls.

Next week, we will continue on the whites in the colorcode, hopefully, you’re learning something about the peacemakers in your life!

Unexplained Behaviors Explained? (10)

By Dr. Michael Brooks

This week we will continue with the colorcode personality of white. Have you figured out which is your colorcode personality?

White personalities in the colorcode love peace; they are the peacemakers of all the colors. They are the diplomats and want everyone to work together peacefully. Whites don’t like petty arguments and will not get involved with or be pushed into one.

Whites can be very insecure and non-committal. One thing for sure, whites can be the hardest color to read, and you never know what they are feeling or thinking. For the most part, whites are really good-natured, and most people see that in them. Very few people will challenge or upset them because of their laid-back personalities. Whites struggle with their own self-doubt. Whites often question some of the decisions they make and are unwilling to confront others in the process. One is the issues that I have had in dealing with whites is that they are so passive, at times, you can walk all over them. How do I know this? My secondary color is white, and from past experiences, I have had people try to manipulate me. It used to drive me crazy when I allowed people to do this. More often than not, when we get dependant on someone, we seem to latch on to that person (relationship) or a business that we work at. Whites are very loyal to a fault. This can be to our detriment. Why? More often than not, when whites get into relationships, whites struggle with doing outside interests, they focus solely on that individual and miss opportunities of adding new and exciting interests.

There is something that all whites have in common, that they doubt themselves. They want acceptance and approval from the people in their lives and will often seek it in healthy and unhealthy ways. They seem to question their capabilities. The unhealthy white will seek attention and insist that people pay attention to them.

I know several white personalities in the colorcode who are incredibly patient. They don’t seem to get bothered by very much. They are tolerant of others. They can be waiting for a friend that’s late and, while waiting, will find something to do without getting upset. While others (the reds, blues and yellow personalities) will get upset, be angry, and let you know how upset they are. Whites don’t miss a thing; they are very observant. After looking at all sides of the story, that’s when they will let you know what they think. I had a client that was white in colorcode that never got upset, if the world around her was collapsing, she was not worrying about the little things in life. I do remember though, one time someone was pushing their agenda on her; it didn’t go well for that person. She was very deliberate in the way she talked with them, firm, and didn’t back down. Put a white in the corner, and they will come out fighting. They may seem passive, but they do have their boundaries.

Next week, we will continue this article on the white personality and how to enjoy this person in the colorcode. How many white personality characters do you have in your life?

Unexplained Behaviors Explained? (9)

Unexplained Behaviors Explained? (9)

By Dr. Michael Brooks

Today, we will look at the colorcode personality profile, and out of the four colors, red, blue, yellow, we’ll look at the personality color of white, their mantra is (Peace, all I want is peace). We all know people who avoid arguments at all costs. They rather walk away than fight. Have you ever noticed that some people don’t say very much? They seem to be on the sidelines, watching and observing the actions of others. I call these people the (VOR) Voice Of Reason; they think before they say anything.

This colorcode personality is very much in tune with themselves, simply they love peace in their lives. They love being by themselves and are content being alone. My secondary color is white in the colorcode. Growing up, I didn’t like to argue and avoided fighting with my brothers and sister. I didn’t like it when they were fighting each other. I’d leave the room or go outside or go to my bedroom. Conflict always has been hard for me, even as an adult. I can remember when growing up, if I was sent to my room as a punishment, I considered that a piece of heaven. I had my books on science, history and would read until my parents thought it was time to come out of my room. Time alone to me was healing time, my personal time, and most people who are the white personalities would agree with that.

One of the things you should know about this personality is that they resent being imposed upon, nor will they impose upon others. It’s not in their DNA. When all hell breaks loose, the one person you want in your corner is the white personality. They will bring calmness and comfort to you or those around you. I will often get phone calls when a crisis happens; my nickname is VOR-Voice Of Reason. I will bring peace to a crisis. That’s my job as well and a passion of mine. I love what I do.

Here are some of the pros and cons of having a white personality in the colorcode. The white characteristics are easy to spot once you learn all the other colorcode characters’ traits. Some of the characteristics in the whites are strengths we all admire, and some not so much. Let’s take a look and see what our friends, the whites, bring to the table.

Next week, I will continue with the pros and cons of the white colorcode personality.

Unexplained Behaviors Explained? (8)

Unexplained Behaviors Explained? (8) By Dr. Michael Brooks

We will wrap up the color blue in this article. By now, you have learned a great deal about the blue personality and how important they are to have in your life. Why is it essential to have a blue personality in your life? I believe that they are one of the most enduring colors in the colorcode. They care and are empathetic, and listen well, are energetic, also creative, they love and enjoy closeness in relationships. All in all, they are just good people. Yes, they have their quirks, as we all do. Blues will enrich your life, and trust me, they will bring you a lot of peace and entertainment all at the same time. Blues rarely can tell a joke, and a lot of times, they don’t even get a joke. That will be the entertaining part of a relationship with a blue. I will tell my one blue friend a joke, and they will look at me, trying to figure if the joke was funny!

Here are some of the blues strengths: they are hard workers, always giving of themselves, highly disciplined, very good at deep conversation, very stable and dependable, they have a purpose, emotionally deep, very observant, they love working with children, is a loyal friend, considers spouse first when making decisions, contributes time to relationships, loyal to family, loves building on relationships!

If you’re a blue, these tips are for you: Make sure that those people who are in your family, spouse, work, co-workers, that they know your limits, sometimes blues will say yes, when they should say “NO”. Blues get way over their heads with a yes commitment. So let people know your boundaries and stick with them. This will prevent you from being taken advantage of and overwhelmed.

Don’t stress over your unmet expectations, manage your perfectionism, keep that in check. When dealing with unmet expectations, it’s easy to get overwhelmed, but stay focused and work on one detail at a time. Don’t be demanding and hard on yourself, that’s a waste of energy on your part.

Don’t keep dates, times of every interaction that you have with people. Learn to let go of past issues that you have had with people. There is no reason to keep those files in your head. Some people will upset you in life, but honestly, why give them any space in your mind. Cleanse your mind and get rid of bad memories, bad people, and move on with your life. You, as a blue, enrich so many of us, and we need you in our lives. Learn to let go and enjoy life.

Remember you can’t control every situation, some things are out of your hands. Realize that you can’t control other people, you can’t run other people’s lives. You can’t control what other people do. Can you control your boss at work? No, you can’t. Can you control your neighbor next door? NO, you can’t. Learn to relax and live with your color blue. You guys are amazing!

Next week, we will continue the series on the colorcode on the color white (Life’s peacekeepers).

Unexplained Behaviors Explained? (7)

Unexplained Behaviors Explained? (7)

By Dr. Michael Brooks

This week, we will continue this series on the colorcode with the color blue. Hopefully, you’re starting to see how the colorcode works, each color has it’s pros and cons, and once we get through this series, you’ll understand peoples motives and why they do the things they do, in a good way or bad. I think Taylor Hartman is spot on with the way he sees people. I have used the colorcode when dealing with my clients and their needs. If you want a better marriage, the colorcode will open doors to better communication. If you are having issues at work with a co-worker or boss/management, the colorcode will open doors of understanding. If you hire or lay people off, the colorcode will give you the necessary tools for a better work environment, and better employee hires for the company.

As we continue with the pros and cons for the blues, pay attention to how blues impact personal and business relationships. The deeper we get into the blues and the colorcode, you’ll soon discover the importance of knowing why healthy blues are essential to have in your life.

Blues, no doubt, are self-disciplined. They get things done and make a plan to and stick to it. They love projects, and this will bring out the best in them. I have worked with blues who loved the challenge and made things happen. I didn’t worry one bit; they were dependable. You can count on a healthy blue to get the job done.

One of the negatives about blues is they lean towards being guilt-prone and worry. They worry about everything. It can bog them down at times. In their personal lives, they worry about things that are out of their control. They worry about the kids at school, they worry about the traffic, they worry about their jobs. They are extremely hard on themselves. Most of the things they worry about never happen. It’s a waste of valuable energy, in my humble opinion.

Blues think of others before they think of themselves, they love putting others before themselves, and this brings them great pleasure. They enjoy helping others in need. When blues care about you, they will go the extra mile to make things happen. I have seen very healthy marriages where the wife was a blue and loved serving her family. She was happy to enrich her husband and her kid’s lives. Blue’s are notorious givers of their time and money.

Blues can be self-righteous and insecure at times. One thing you can count on, blues have strong personalities. They are not shy when stating their opinions with others. If they feel safe around you, they will share their deep feelings and ideas. They will, at times, set unrealistic goals, and this causes them to feel guilty caused by their attitudes and unmet expectations.  

Next week, we will continue the series on the colorcode.

Unexplained Behaviors Explained? (6) By Dr. Michael Brooks

Unexplained Behaviors Explained? (6) By Dr. Michael Brooks

This week we will look at the colorcode and continue with the color Blue. Blue have their complicated sides too, and we will go over that today. So we know that blues have a wonderful side to them, they’re fun to be around, they are committed to relationships, and passionate about being loyal and honest. We love having that kind of relationship and being in one. Then again, there is an unhealthy side of the Blue as well. So, let’s dig in and explore the other side of the blue personality.

My friend that is blue has a side of her that causes some that know her a lot of grief. She is a perfectionist to the core. When working with her, she has to control projects with perfection. Unfortunately, that can get in the way of demanding projects. It’s simply hard to work with her. She is never really satisfied with her project’s outcome, she’s always making changes, and her team is frustrated with her. She has unreal expectations for herself and her team. She struggles with her idea’s thinking there not good enough. Self-doubt is a big problem for her.

Blues can be highly demanding and, more often than not, are not able to communicate or articulate very well. This causes confusion to those who are in a relationship with a blue. The confusion blues cause has people wondering how do “I talk to a blue?” Blues don’t share their expectations very well, leaving people wondering and searching for answers after meeting with them. Blues will sometimes finish a project because they don’t trust the project to be good enough to meet their expectations.

My friend was very distrusting of people. She would question the motives of people until she got to know them. When you don’t trust people’s intentions, this can be a problem. Once blues trust you, you’re pretty much at ease with them. She would assign people specific jobs with projects and would question why she gave that job to a particular person when others were more qualified. They often second guess their decisions. She would watch to see if people kept their word, and if they didn’t, they were on her do not trust list. This was in her personal and business relationships. She was very strict about this.

Unhealthy blues can be a big problem

Blues loved to be admired by others; in fact, they are the most admired out of all the colors. Why? They are admired because of their loyalty, honesty, being trusted, caring, and sincerity. Heck, what’s not to like about that, right? There are pros and cons to blues wanting to be admired. You can overdo being admired by others. You might think that an unhealthy blue would be considered self-centered by wanting to be noticed or admired.

Blues can be very emotional and moody at times and in an unhealthy way. The unhealthy Blue can be unforgiving and extremely sensitive. It seemed at times that my friend seemed to hold grudges and not let go of some of the pain that people caused her in the past. I tried to understand her reasoning behind her actions. She’d get upset at little things that normally you or I would just not give it a second thought! Of all the colors, blue’s deal with more depression than the reds, yellows, and whites. Blues will give more energy than any other color personality in a relationship, but they also forgive the least. My friend could recall those people who hurt her feelings in High School. She remembered their names and almost the dates and times anything terrible that happened to her she remembered.

Next week, we will continue the series on the colorcode.

Unexplained Behaviors Explained? (5) By Dr. Michael Brooks

Unexplained Behaviors Explained? (5) By Dr. Michael Brooks

This week we will talk about the colorcode and the color blue. The Blue’s personality is considered kind, good-hearted people. They love relationships and helping others. They connect well with all the other colors. They remember birthdays, anniversary’s, special days, and they don’t forget anything if they have a relationship with you. Life for a blue is all about relationships. They are the saints of all the colors. Blues are the most appreciated and admired of the four colors, and soon you’ll see why!

I have a friend of mine that is a solid blue, she is articulate and considerate of others, plans things to the extreme detail, and honestly, people just love being around her. She makes you feel special. A while back, I had a bad cold, and when she found out about it, she hurried over and brought over homemade soup, 7-up, and cold medicine. She stayed and made sure I was taking the cold medicine and eating her soup. These are the things blues just do, they want to help you in any way they can. Blues are committed and very loyal to a relationship. A friendship with a blue usually means a lifetime friendship, through the good times and the bad. They love connection and value relationships. My friend is very dependable, if she said she was going to be at a meeting, she was always on time or extra early. In my book, blues are the do-gooders in life. You want them in your life because they are considerate and healthy for a good relationship.

Healthy blues are very easy to get a long with!

The blues have their strengths and weaknesses, and I want to go over them with you. We have covered a few of the Blue’s strengths, and I want to continue with their strengths.

Once you meet a blue or realize that you have a blue in your life, you are indeed blessed with a wonderful friend, relative, or business associate. Blues offer something that every relationship needs, and that’s loyalty. If you ever need a friend that you can call 24/7 and go to battle for you, that’s a blue trait. Blues will listen to you with an open heart and share their heart with care and concern. They listen well and will share their concerns for your emotional needs, blues love with passion. If you’re married to a blue or are in a committed relationship with one, lookout, they will make your relationship a top priority. Blues have their complicated side too, and we will go over that next week.
