Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0684848228, Paperback)If you're familiar with the Hippocratic or medieval model for typing personalities (choleric, melancholy, phlegmatic, and sanguine), then Taylor Hartman's The Color Code will be a short refresher course for you.
This "original" personality paradigm divides us into (surprise!) four colors-- red, blue, white, and yellow--that define the characteristics of our fundamental natures. Reds are the annoying bossy types; blues are moody artists; whites are unmotivated layabouts; and yellows are--you guessed it--party animals. Well, maybe it's not that extreme, but according to Hartman, who reads the text himself, each person has one true color that explains the motivations behind his or her behavior. For example, if you are a red, you are probably a natural-born leader and have a high need for control. While this characteristic may do marvelous things for your career, it could have a devastating effect on interpersonal relationships.
In a simple, easy-to-follow, chime-filled format, Hartman suggests ways to capitalize on each color's positive attributes and offers advice on how to downplay its weaknesses. Did we mention the package also includes a personality test? (Running time: two hours; two cassettes)

The key to unlocking the mystery of your personality is to figure out what your motivations are. A jury can't vote to convict a criminal without identifying a motive, but many of us never give a second thought to our own motivations. We should. And The Color Code is just the place to start. With The Color Code, you'll gain incredible insights into who you are and the relationships you have by taking a 45-question personality profile that's fun, simple, and sophisticated. Your responses to this illuminating test will start you out on a thrilling journey of self-discovery that will enable you to: Find out which of four different color-coded personality types - Red, Blue, White, or Yellow - is your true color; learn what your natural strengths are and how you can enhance them to get what you want out of life and your relationships; learn about your natural limitations - ones you may never have been aware of - and how you can overcome them; discover the career that suits your personality; and read the personality colors of other people in your life and learn the "dos" and "don'ts" of developing positive connections with them.
