It's All About Me!

Musings by Donna #35 What Color is YOUR Brain?

Colorful Brains

What color is your brain?

Is it purple or red? Is it green,
, or blue?

Are you mellow?
Are you vibrant?
Are you friendly and outgoing?
Do you like to travel in far remote villages or laze on a warm, sunny beach? Would a safari in the deep jungle be more your style?

Brains/personalities come in all different types. They are impassioned. They are relaxed. They are frenzied and creative, and inventive. Do you ever wonder what color your brain is?  I do.

And so I asked my friends a few questions. I have very colorful friends.


My BLUE-Brained Friends
David-husband; Kaya-granddaughter; Jared-son; Kiersten-daughter; Tricia-fav cuz; Krystil-niece; Bob, F.-University of Pittsburgh, Phi Kappa Theta friend

Your Mind is Blue
Of all the mind types, yours is the most mellow.
You tend to be in a meditative state most of the time. You don’t try to think away
your troubles.
Your thoughts are realistic, fresh, and honest. You truly see things as how they are.
You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about your friends, your surroundings, and your life.

Of all the mind types, yours is the most intellectual.
You crave mental stimulation, and your thoughts tend to very complex.
Your thoughts tend to be innovative and cutting edge, though many people don’t understand them.

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about science, architecture, and communication.

My PURPLE-Brained Friends
Treska-granddaughter;  Donna-self; Gayle-writer friend from Arkansas; Cousin-Kathy S.;
Cousin-Lisa L.

Of all the mind types, yours is the most idealistic.
You tend to think wild, amazing thoughts. Your dreams and fantasies are intense.brain-purple-clipart-picture30Your thoughts are creative, inventive, and without boundaries.

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking of fictional people and places – or a very different life for yourself.

My RED-Brained Friendsbrain-red-clipart-picture41

Of all the mind types, yours is the most impulsive.
If you think it, you do it. And you can get the bug to pursue almost any passion.
Your thoughts are big and bold. Your mind has no inhibitions.

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about love, your dreams, and distant places.

My GREEN-Brained Friends

Of all the mind types, yours has the most balance.brain-green-clipart-picture35
You are able to see all sides to most problems and are a good problem solver.
You need time to work out your thoughts, but you don’t get stuck in bad thinking patterns.

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about the future, philosophy, and relationships (both personal and intellectual).

My ORANGE-Brained Friends

Of all the mind types, yours is the quickest.

brain-clipart-picture8 You are usually thinking a mile a minute, and you could be thinking about anything at all.

Your thoughts are often scattered and random – but they’re also a lot of fun!

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about esoteric subjects, the meaning of life, and pop culture.

  2. Kier, when you took the quiz last time, your brain registered blue. Try the quiz again.
