    So I was bored and found this colour quiz that supposedly says something about your personality.
    http://www.colorquiz.com


    Here are my results:

    -- existing situation
    Feels obstructed in her desires and prevented from obtaining the things she regards as essential.

    -- stress sources
    Feels that life has far more to offer and that there are still important things to be achieved--that life must be experienced to the fullest. As a result, she pursues her objectives with a fierce intensity that will not let go of things. Becomes deeply involved and runs the risk of being unable to view things with sufficient objectivity, or calmly enough; is therefore in danger of becoming agitated and of exhausting her nervous energy. Cannot leave things alone and feels she can only be at peace when she has finally reached her goal.

    -- restrained characteristics
    Clings to her belief that her hopes and ideas are realistic, but needs encouragement and reassurance. Applies very exacting standards to her choice of a partner and wants guarantees against loss or disappointment.

    Feels that she is receiving less than her share and that there is no one on whom she can rely for sympathy and understanding. Pent-up emotions and a certain egocentricity make her quick to take offense, but she realizes that she has to make the best of things as they are.

    Able to achieve satisfaction through sexual activity.

    -- desired objective
    Desires a tranquil, peaceful state of harmony offering quiet contentment and a sense of belonging.

    -- actual problem
    Needs to achieve a stable and peaceful condition, enabling her to free herself of the worry that she may be prevented from achieving all the things she wants.

    Your Existing Situation
    Sensitive; needs esthetic surroundings, or an equally sensitive and understanding partner with whom to share a warm intimacy.

    Your Stress Sources
    Has an unsatisfied need to ally herself with others whose standards are as high as her own, and to stand out from the herd. Her control of her sensual instincts restricts her ability to give herself, but the resulting isolation leads to the urge to surrender and allow herself to merge with another. This disturbs her. as such instincts are regarded as weaknesses to be overcome; she feels that only by continued self-restraint can she hope to maintain her attitude of individual superiority. (what do they mean by this?! oh okay, that i'm stepping away from you and R? that's interesting, don't you think?) Wants to be loved or admired for herself alone; needs attention, recognition, and the esteem of others. (nah)

    Your Restrained Characteristics
    The situation is preventing her from establishing herself, but she feels she must make the best of things as they are.
    Insists that her goals are realistic and sticks obstinately to them, even though circumstances are forcing her to compromise. Very exacting in the standards she applies to her choice of a partner.:laugh:


    Your Desired Objective
    Intense, vital, and animated, taking a delight in action. Activity is directed towards success or conquest and there is a desire to live life to the fullest

    Your Actual Problem
    The fear that she might be prevented from achieving the things she wants leads her to play her part with "an urgent and hectic intensity.":laugh:

    Your Actual Problem #2
    Takes a delight in action and wants to be respected and esteemed for her personal accomplishments. (not really no)

    I love the 'action' bit. I always talk about action here to you...

    Acts calmly, with the minimum of upset, in order to handle existing relationships. Likes to feel relaxed and at ease with his associates and those close to him.

    Your Stress Sources
    The situation is regarded as threatening or dangerous. Outraged by the thought that he will be unable to achieve his goals and distressed at the feeling of helplessness to remedy this. Over-extended and feels beset, possibly to the point of nervous prostration.

    Your Restrained Characteristics

    Very exacting in the standards he applies to his choice of a partner and seeking a rather unrealistic perfection in his sex life

    Your Desired Objective
    Demands that ideas and emotions shall merge and blend perfectly. Refuses to make any concessions or to accept any compromises.

    Your Actual Problem
    Depleted vitality has created an intolerance for any further stimulation, or demands on his resources. This feeling of powerlessness subjects him to agitation and acute distress. He reacts by considering that he has been victimized, and insists--with indignation, resentment, and defiance--on being given his own way.

    So just by picking colour they knew all of that... Interesting...

    Your Existing Situation
    Acts calmly, with the minimum of upset, in order to handle existing relationships. Likes to feel relaxed and at ease with her associates and those close to him.

    Your Stress Sources
    The tenacity and strength of will necessary to contend with existing difficulties has become weakened. Feels overtaxed, worn out, and getting nowhere, but continues to stand her ground. She feels this adverse situation as an actual tangible pressure which is intolerable to her and from which she wants to escape, but she feels unable to make the necessary decision.

    Your Actual Problem
    The tensions induced by trying to cope with conditions which are really beyond her capabilities, or reserves of strength, have led to considerable anxiety and a sense of personal (but unadmitted) inadequacy. Her inability to enforce her will causes her to over-react in stubborn defiance and by assigning to others all the blame for her own failures.

    Your Existing Situation
    Imaginative and sensitive; seeking an outlet for these qualities--especially in the company of someone equally sensitive. Interest and enthusiasm are readily aroused by the unusual or the adventurous.

    Your Stress Sources
    Feels unappreciated and finds the existing situation threatening. Wants personal recognition and the esteem of others to compensate for the lack of like-minded people with whom to ally herself and make herself more secure. Her sensual self-restraint makes it difficult for her to give herself, but the resulting isolation leads to the urge to surrender and merge with another. This disturbs her as she regards such instincts as weaknesses to be overcome; only by not succumbing to them, she feels, can she withstand the difficulties of the situation. Wants to be valued as a desirable associate and admired for her personal qualities.

    Your Restrained Characteristics
    Circumstances are such that she feels forced to compromise for the time being if she is to avoid being cut off from affection or from full participation.
    Circumstances force her to compromise and to forgo some pleasures for the time being. Capable of achieving physical satisfaction through sexual activity.

    Your Desired Objective

    Your Actual Problem
    Depleted vitality has created an intolerance for any further stimulation, or demands on her resources. A feeling of powerlessness subjects her to agitation and acute distress.

    Your Actual Problem #2
    Wants to be valued and respected, and seeks this from a close and peaceful association of mutual esteem.

    Your Existing Situation
    Sensitive; needs esthetic surroundings, or an equally sensitive and understanding partner with whom to share a warm intimacy.

    Your Stress Sources
    The existing situation is disagreeable. Feels lonely and uncertain as she has an unsatisfied need to ally herself with others whose standards are as high as her own, and wants to stand out from the rank and file. This sense of isolation magnifies the need into a compelling urge, all the more upsetting to her self-sufficiency because of the restraint she normally imposes on herself. Since she wants to demonstrate the unique quality of her own character, she tries to suppress this need for others and affects an attitude of unconcerned self-reliance to conceal her fear of inadequacy, treating those who criticize her behavior with contempt. However, beneath this assumption of indifference she really longs for the approval and esteem of others.

    Your Restrained Characteristics
    An unadmitted lack of confidence makes her careful to avoid open conflict and she feels she must make the best of things as they are.
    Trying to calm down and unwind after a period of over-agitation which has left her listless and devoid of energy. In need of peace and quiet; becomes irritable if this is denied him

    Your Desired Objective
    Considers the existing circumstances disagreeable and over-demanding. Refuses to allow anything to influence her point of view.

    Your Actual Problem
    The need for esteem--for the chance to play some outstanding part and make a name for herself--has become imperative. She reacts by insisting on being the center of attention, and refuses to play an impersonal or minor role.

    Your Actual Problem #2
    Disappointment and the fear that there is no point in formulating fresh goals have led to anxiety, emptiness, and an unadmitted self-contempt. Her refusal to admit this leads to her adopting a headstrong and defiant attitude.

    Active, but feels that insufficient progress or reward is being made for the effort exerted.

    Your Stress Sources
    Has an unsatisfied need to ally himself with others whose standards are as high as his own, and to stand out from the herd. This desire for preeminence isolates him and inhibits his readiness to give himself freely. While he wants to surrender and let himself go, he regards this as a weakness which must be resisted. This self-restraint, he feels, will lift him above the rank and file and ensure recognition as a unique and distinctive personality.

    Your Restrained Characteristics
    Demanding and particular in his relations with his partner or those close to him, but careful to avoid open conflict since this might reduce his prospects of realizing his hopes and ideas.

    Your Existing Situation
    -- Pursues her objectives and her own-self-interest with stubborn determination; refuses to compromise or make concessions.

    Your Stress Sources
    -- Eager to make a good impression, but worried and doubtful about the likelihood of succeeding. Feels that she has a right to anything she might hope for, and becomes helpless and distressed when circumstances go against her. Finds the mere possibility of failure most upsetting and this can even lead to nervous prostration. Sees herself as a 'victim' who has been misled and abused, mistakes this dramatization for reality and tries to convince herself that her failure to achieve standing and recognition is the fault of others.

    Your Restrained Characteristics
    -- Very exacting in the standards she applies to her choice of a partner and seeking a rather unrealistic perfection in her sex life.
    Emotionally inhibited. Feels forced to compromise, making it difficult for her to form a stable emotional attachment.

    Your Desired Objective
    -- Longs for sensitive and sympathetic understanding and wants to protect herself against argument, conflict, or any exhausting stresses.

    Your Actual Problem
    -- Depleted vitality has created an intolerance for any further stimulation, or demands on her resources. This feeling of powerlessness subjects her to agitation and acute distress. She attempts to escape into a substitute world in which things are more nearly as she desires them to be.

    Your Actual Problem #2
    -- Disappointment and the fear that there is no point in formulating fresh goals have led to anxiety, and she is distressed by the lack of any close and understanding relationship. She attempts to escape into a substitute world in which things are more nearly as she desires them to be.
