House Beautiful's Color Personality Test- Very Fun!

The September issue of House Beautiful revolves around how to "find your COLOR personality." Though there is no key to answering the quiz, you will see that when you are finished, you will have naturally gravitated towards one or two colors. At the end of the quiz, I'll list the colors and the personalities associated with each one.

My answers fell into the Red and Pink categories-And I would have to say, it's not too far off, though nutty isn't listed in either of these :)

RED: The most dominant personality. A visionary and risk taker: energetic, passionate, tenacious, flamboyant, and courageous.

ROSE: Main qualities are strength, love, and leadership. Turns visions into reality.

I have put down all my answers with pictures. Answer the questions yourself and see where you fall into the world of color personalities! The rest of the colors and their meanings are at the end. Enjoy!
