While most people dive into the depths of their personalities through their zodiac signs and birth charts, did you know you can also learn a lot about who you are with a colour? The latest trend to take over TikTok is the colour personality test, which essentially says that everyone is a combination of four colours. In addition to matching you with a colour aesthetic like "ocean depth" or "navy fiony," the personality test provides you with a detailed analysis of your character traits. While some colours are paired with poetic descriptions like, "the deeper you share your feelings with me, the closer you can get to know me," others are hilariously ruthless. For example, the colour "sprout" represents "a lazy perfectionist stuck in a house."
Where are these TikTokers getting their results, and how are their colour personalities determined? If you're like me and you head straight for the comments section with no luck, we've got you covered:
The test itself can be accessed on ktestone.com, where you'll be prompted with a series of questions ranging from general topics like friendship dynamics to more specific ones like how you prepare for a trip. Upon answering all of the questions, you'll be assigned to your colour and provided with detailed (and occasionally sassy) information about your very own colour personality as well as the other ones you're most compatible with.
Though the results seem just about as serious as the How Bad is Your Spotify? trend, The Personal Colour Test isn't a bot that produces randomised results. It's based on the True Colours personality profiling system created by Don Lowry in 1978. In accordance with the personality temperament theory, this modernised test measures your levels of blue, orange, green, and gold to create a unique colour combination. The two dominant colours represent the essence of your personality, so green personalities are independent thinkers, gold personalities are pragmatic planners, orange personalities are action-oriented, and blue personalities are people-oriented.
Wondering what your colour is? Prepare to be roasted (it's all in good fun!), and don't forget to add your results under the #ColorPersonalityAnalysis hashtag on TikTok to find your colour twins!
