    I used this test as a tool back in my working days and was amazed at how accurate it appeared to be. The individuals I gave this test to ALL said it was completely accurate. I retook the test again last night and couldn't believe how right it was!! So, I thought I'd share it with you guys and see what you thought: http://www.paulgoldinresearch.com/cg/

    Actual tests done show an 87% accuracy. The concept is based on colors and how it expresses "mood" and "personality". You will see eight blocks of color. All you do is pick the colors in the order of what you like the most to the least when you look at it. Then it will show you a profile of your physical well-being and underlying character traits...

    Have fun! And please let me know if it is accurate in your eyes or not. Thanks!

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif] You are longing for some love and affection at this time - not that you have been deprived of tender loving care - but there are times when everyone needs to try something new or to go 'somewhere' else to perhaps experience that little extra 'understanding'.

    Now there are many things in life that you require as essential to your well-being but, try as you may, something always seems to be getting in your way. A word of advice - 'keep trying' and you may be pleasantly surprised to see just how matters turn out.

    You lack confidence and that is a great pity because deep down you are indeed a warm caring person. This lack of confidence is making you wary of being drawn into any open discussion or conflict and so you feel as if you should let matters lie and leave well alone. But there may be a pleasant surprise in store for you. You are beginning to grow and very soon - sooner than you believed possible - this warm loving new you will be available for all to see and to appreciate.

    You are pretending that the situation around you doesn't matter, but the effort of trying to conceal your emotions and anxieties is resulting in untold stress. The existing situation is disagreeable. You feel unwanted and lonely and you would really like to associate with someone whose ideals are as high as your own. You want to be above the standard of mediocrity and this need to be needed and that need to need has almost become an obsession. You are trying to magnify the need into a compelling urge. You would really like to tell the world how great you are but no, you are holding back because you feel that your peers may treat you with contempt. This is a great pity because you have in fact a unique quality of character, but the continual restraint that you impose on yourself makes you suppress this need for others and you pretend you don't really care. You treat those who criticise you with contempt. However, to be honest, beneath this assumption of indifference you really long for the approval and esteem of others.

    You are greatly impressed by individuality and have interest in people who have outstanding qualities. You try to imitate those people that you admire and their characteristics, hoping that you will be able to display similar qualities in your own personality.

    Hmmm.... palmistry nonsense.

    hmmm... so the first one I assume is inaccurate. Figures! Anyway, anyone else think it's accurate. I'm not posting my profile b/c it's soooo accurate! Too much information about me to post!

    :shock: Wow, very accurate. I think Aubrey will vouch for it being completely true!

    You are feeling exhausted, worn out, drained. You feel that far too much is being asked of you but you still want to overcome these difficulties and establish yourself despite the effect such an effort seems to have on you. You are a proud person, assertive most of the time, but at this particular moment you are acting as if you have become resigned to the situation. What you need is some tender loving care - a gentle pat on the head (or maybe a 'kick-up-the backside') and then you'll be raring to go.

    You are a very warm and emotional individual but unfortunately in the past too many people have taken advantage of this sensitive trait. You need aesthetic surroundings, or an equally sensitive and understanding partner with whom to share a warm understanding.

    You are trying to break away from the mundane existence that you have been experiencing of late. You have many high hopes and ideals but you are concerned whether circumstances will allow you to realise these ambitions. You want to spread your wings - to broaden your fields of activities - but you are concerned that your dreams are just that - 'dreams' which are not realistic. It concerns you that you are not thinking clearly at this time - what you need is to get away from it all, to give you time to think. A short vacation could well restore your confidence.

    You are being unduly influenced by the situation that is all around you. You do not like the feeling of loneliness and whatever it is that seems to separate you from others. You know that life can be wonderful and you are anxious to experience life in all its aspects, to live it to the full. You therefore resent any restriction or limitations that are being imposed on you and you insist on going it alone.

    You are trying to build up your own position and you resist all external influences. You insist that you are your own person and you will not tolerate any outside interference. Decisive and proud, you are true managerial material.

    It looks like the kind of twaddle that NLP advocates and particularly second-rate US stress councillors / hypnosis bullies come out with. What it does is play on about four conceptual vagueries which are likely to appeal to all people who are slightly weak minded:

    #1 The need or desire to be loved or wanted. (As if any potential customer is happy!)
    #2 The future will be better. (or "you can attain that goal")
    #3 It is your fault that things are this way.
    #4 All the above is definitely true, but you have the power to change this. Courses start at only $999, so sign up now!

    I'm not doubting it is accurate in some cases, or that for example a horoscope occasionally hits the mark. This happens to be one of my areas of personal interest and study, especially the misuse of NLP, hypnotism and influence. Colour is definitely linked directly to emotional states. Imagery is very important in influence as well.

    If you want to play one of my versions of this, you can PM me for details - I don't have a flash website to do it with though!! :) Oh, and it'll be free... and I won't reprogram you either!!! ;)

    fairly good, some of the sentances applied to me so there could be something in it.... although the lady in my office did it and she wasn't so impressed... interesting tho.... i do believe colours are related to mood.... i.e red in a dining room helps the appetite.... soft green is relaxing etc

    I didn't mean that as an insult to you. Sorry if you took it that way, honestly wasn't my intention. The dangers of typing without thinking.

    I meant that that is generally the target audience of the majority of paid events, especially in the UK. It is completely my belief that people should get professional help for personal issues, rather than blowing all their money on iffy courses. Perhaps this is a fundamental UK/US difference - in the UK we expect everything to be free and are extremely cynical of alternative techniques.

    Again, wasn't directed at you, more that the site smacks of product sales rather than helping people. Hey, it might work for people, in which case good luck to them. I suspect it is really expensive pseudo-science.

    Oh, btw, I'm not offended Rob by what you said - everyone is entitled to their own opinions.... don't want anyone to think I'm bothered by where this thread it going. :mrgreen:

    Yeah, this is a free and easy test I could use in my counselling and classes... a convenient way to get individuals to open up to me. I was just amazed at how many people felt it was accurate.

    I like the one with the house, tree, body of water... that's scarily accurate in many cases. You know that one?
