Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is True Colors?

True Colors™ is a fun, informative, communication system that provides the keys to success. Based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and the work of Dr. David Keirsey, True Colors offers a research-based approach to understanding human behavior and motivation. True Colors uses a metaphor of colors (gold, orange, blue, and green) to identify four distinct perspectives and personalities. The four True Colors constitute your character spectrum. Knowing your primary and secondary "color" will provide you with clues to your esteem, your strengths, joys, needs and what causes you stress and frustration. Once you begin to incorporate these concepts into daily language and experience, you are able to recognize and appreciate diversity and your own unique strengths and preferences, as well as those of people at work, school, and home. True Colors provides a clear, fundamental and universal way of translating complicated individual perspectives to help overcome the barriers to progress. This understanding improves collaboration, provides a way to strategize and organize work teams, helps increase individual and team productivity and recognition, and provides a way for decision-makers to utilize personality type in day-to-day management decisions.
