TidBits About Donna #56 What Color Am I?

What Color Am I?
(reprinted from my website – January 2010)

For this quiz  I had to choose a variety of characteristics that I believe apply to me, like … motivated, loyal, competitive, friendly, hard-working, compassionate, and dramatic. oh yes … dramatic. Those were just some of the attributes that I chose from the long, long list of more than 60 qualifications.

It turns out I am orchid. Funny … that has been my color of choice lately. I have several purple shirts and a purple bracelet and even my necklace has a lot of purple in it.

There must be some truth in this color quiz. AND .. there is a LOT that simply does not fit.

I am orchid!

Your dominant hues are red and blue. You’re confident and like showing people new ideas. You play well with others and can be very influential if you want to be.Your saturation level is lower than average – You don’t stress out over things and don’t understand people who do. Finishing projects may sometimes be a challenge, but you schedule time as you see fit and the important things all happen in the end, even if not everyone sees your grand master plan.Your outlook on life is bright. You see good things in situations where others may not be able to, and it frustrates you to see them get down on everything.

I agree most times I am confident and I love to share new and innovative ideas – especially teaching or classroom ideas; or ideas about writing and the publishing world. Sharing is fun. I do enjoy the company of many types of people. People have so many different things to offer. I am not sure about my influence, though – you tell me.

Talk about stress. I never stress over anything. I always take things in stride. I am about the most calm person I know. I never ever let things bother me. I don’t let fighting with insurance companies get to me. No sirree! Not ever! When someone cuts me off as I wait on the apron of the highway, I just laugh it off. When the bills pile up on my desk and I can’t find the time to rid them from my life, I just let them stack up. NO matter! I never let stress rule my life!

Oh drat! I hope David doesn’t read this. If he adds a comment down below, don’t, I repeat, DON’T believe a word he says. He’ll only tell you I am the most stressed out person he knows — and well, he’s probably right.

I do so finish projects I start! It just may take me a little longer since I have a million projects going on at once. I am NEVER bored.

An upbeat attitude towards life? Yep, that’s me. As they say – if life gives you lemons, make lemonade – just hold the sugar.

So, I guess you could say that I am shades of orchid with a little yellow and blue and red and green and orange dripped in. I bet we all are – shades of one color … or another – with a lot of other colors swirled in.

  1. I was OK with your color until I read about stress. Have I ever seen you stressed? I won’t answer that. We’ll leave it to everyone’s imagination.

  2. Ditto to David’s response. I was reading this and thought, that is NOT my sister.
