Here's some color assignments for you to argue about:

What are you?

    Blue/Black

    I wish there was a pretty good way of determining this through questions, though I guess peer review will do for now.

    Hmmm, I'll cosign that.

    Assuming that order matters in your descriptions, sell me on green/red/black. Green is the part I'm leaning from mostly.

    Also, Marie and Jackie are the only solid colors? Go on?

    I feel like that quiz would be exhausting.

    Not by a long shot, just in my very short list to get folks started. For instance, I'd say @sazboom is White and @j is Black.

    As the article says, I don't think there's any rhyme or reason to whether you are 1 vs 2 vs 3 colors. The system isn't setup to value number of colors. If anything, I had to fight against adding colors that weren't "core" for each person.

    Leaning from - it's the one you most disagree with? :skeptic:

    Sorry, what?

  • Yes?

    A green agent, when presented with a decision or quandary, asks how are these things usually done? What is the established wisdom?

    You're reading the mono-green. The combination matters.

    //edit: Not that I think any of the 3-color descriptions fit anyone to a 'T' - they're a bit corny by design. I'm just saying it's in the ballpark.

  • RyanFodderRyanFodder Detroit, MI Icrontian

    I agree with mine. I'm confused with Jimmy's green addition also.

    Alright, I'll agree with Red/Black. I still say there's a splash of Green (much as I think @pragtastic has a splash of Red) but I think the whole camping/nature/Bear thing probably drew me on the Green too hard.

  • RyanFodderRyanFodder Detroit, MI Icrontian

    I would have put Eli as Blue/White/Red also

  • Green doesn't ALWAYS mean nature didn't you read the article?!?

    Some more theories:

    @CB is White.
    @Soto is Blue.
    @Gargoyle is Green/Blue.
    @Ryder is White/Blue.
    @cola is Red/White.

    I don't understand.

  • GnomeQueenGnomeQueen The Lulz Queen Mountain Dew Mouth Icrontian

    I would argue that I'm green/blue. Kind of like how I'm a ravenpuff.

    Linc
  • GnomeQueenGnomeQueen The Lulz Queen Mountain Dew Mouth Icrontian

    @Linc

    Some adjustments:

    @soto is blue/black
    @cb is white/blue and maaaaybe a splash of red.

    Unless I'm completely misunderstanding this I think I'm Red/White/Blue.

    Favouring the Red/White and Blue/White crossovers over Red/Blue.

    If it helps at all I'm an ISTJ-A on the Myers Briggs

    I feel that Blue is my core, and I think this is an accurate description of CB as a young man, but I have rebuilt my deck a couple times since then, and each time there is more red and less white.

    That is a pretty analogy, @CB

    I think you got me there. It's also extremely amusing to me that that is in fact my favorite magic color combination as well, in correct order of preference. Also while cannon HP places me in either slytherin or ravenclaw, HPMOR's adjusted more realistic houses puts me squarely in slytherin, which kind of surprised me at first before I thought about it.

    Also, the website does not know who soto is guys =P

    I'll accept Red/White, it does reflect certain aspects of how I act and react. I honestly had myself pegged as Red/Blue/Green but after some thought I realized that all four of those aforementioned colors show through more strongly based on the situations that I'm in. Definitely enjoyed reading the article.

  • SonorousSonorous F@H Fanatic Virginia Icrontian

    I'm leaning Green/Blue, but there are aspects of White and Red that could also suit my personality. If I base this purely on play style, which I haven't played in overt ten years, I would probably say pure red.

    How similar are these to the discovery insights colors? https://www.insights.com/us/products/insights-discovery/

    I rescind my initial take, this is correct.

    That's true of anyone to an extent, I think. This is more so about the baseline. I think I erred by letting your current job context have too much sway.

    Green/Blue/Red?? Dont know.

  • ThraxThrax Professional Shill, Watch Slut, Mumble Hivemind Drone Austin, TX Icrontian

    I accept your colors, but move black to a very distant third. The strong amorality bent of Black is antithetical to my value system, but the decisive self-reliance is valuable.
