This quiz is not researched and is only intended to give you some idea of your temperament. As far as I know there is no quiz or other insturment that will give you a 100% guaranteed answer as to what your temperament is. At best, you can only make a statment such as "right now I have a preference for a Blue temperament." It is believed that we are born with a specific dominant temeprament that is dominant within us all of our lives. It is always helpful to do more reading and take workshops to give you a clearer understanding of the concept of temperament and how it applies to your life and to the lives of others. The names after each colour are the adjectives that various temperament programs use when giving a workshop on temperament.
