We all know that the True Colors Personality Assessment aides us in discovering the qualities and characteristics of our own particular personality style, along with helping us to gain an understanding of other personality styles. True Colors is often contrasted with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, which measures psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions and uses 16 personality types to describe those preferences.
In the late 1970s, Don Lowry began working with Kiersey‘s research and developed a system using color to identify these four groups, making the concept more accessible for practical application in a work, school, family, or clinical environment.
Here’s how True Colors corresponds to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator:
|Keirsey’s Temperaments|| Idealist
|Myers-Briggs Type Indicator||INFP, ENFP, INFJ, ENFJ||ESFJ, ISFJ, ESTJ, ISTJ||INTJ, ENTJ, INTP, ENTP||ESFP, ISFP, ESTP, ISTP|
Athletic Academic Coordinator,
Has your color spectrum changed over the years? How?
Describe those changes to your colleagues. Remember True Colors is a tool to understanding others and ourselves. It is a common language because we talk about it and use it to articulate our perspectives to each other. Keep it going.
