For those who know me, they will probably not be too surprised to learn that I'm a "hub", leaning towards blue-green and blue, especially in conflict: "Flexible-Cohering," close to "Cautious-Supporting" and "Altruistic-Nurturing."
As they read the attributes attributed to each color (or hub in my case), I had to get over the horoscope similarity--these things could describe anybody under a given situation, or how one wants to be more than how they are. Once I was past that, I found it quite interesting to think about myself and my coworkers through the simplifying lens of the SDI score set. My manager and one coworker are blue (altruistic-nurturing), and another coworker green (analytic-autonomizing).
So, one of my goals over the next while is to figure out how this impacts my communications with my peers. That's the goal of the class, after all.
The class was sprung on me during the day, so I hadn't expected to spend my last 2 or 3 hours learning what color I am. I guess I need to do the MBTI next so I can relate to all those other people in the world who know their colors. I'll bet I can find all sorts of color schemes to categorize myself. And I'll bet I'll not be surprised at all at my own outcome each time. Now, if I could just get all the people around me to do the same things and to wear their colors on a badge or something, then I'd know how to deal with them as well.
