The Value of Culture, Personality & Color
Ever since Ancient Greece, people have recognized that individuals within a culture operate differently, with different personality styles. And almost since that time, there have been tests to try and help people figure out their own styles as well as how to work well with the styles of other people.
Our True Colors Personality Test (below) is one such test where we use four colors to represent four styles of being - green, blue, orange, and gold. Each of us has some of all these colors in our personality, but most of us have more of one than the others. We call this our dominant personality style.
We might sometimes act like an orange even when our dominant color is blue, but we're more likely to act like our dominant color more of the time...especially when we're under stress.
No one color is better than another. And at overnight camp, where we value teamwork and social growth, it's very helpful to have a variety of different colors so that we have all the personality traits we need to thrive as a community.
