The Color Test
The brief Luscher color test version asks you to select from eight colors, in order of your preference. People tend to be skeptical about the diagnostic process, but it’s amazing how much scope it really has. It’s very difficult to explain the whole analytical reasoning behind the diagnosis, because of course, this is the culmination of a considerable amount of work.
The eight colors are violet, dark blue, black, brown, orange, yellow, blue-green and grey.
(show the eight colors below)
The color in the first position is the outer characteristics of the person taking the test; the defining qualities. The color in the last position is the restrained, complementary part of the person; this is the area of inner weakness. Each color has its own meaning, but you have to keep in mind that a lot depends on the order of the colors. Here we’ll show you what each color “means” in terms of personality—note that grey, which psychologists view as the intermediate shade of indecision, has not been included as it is non-conclusive; or so they say.
Violet is the color of the mystic. It’s a very good indicator of understanding of deeper rationales, and a sign of sensitivity. Violet is the magic color, and a lot of people believe that it represents out of the box thinking. Because it is the merging of the blue feminine receptivity and the red masculine directivity, violet is the preferred color of homosexual people.
Black is not a depressive color; contrary to general belief. It is the fight, the rebellion towards life’s challenges; a “black-lover” is stubborn, holding to a feeling of hopelessness and obsessive of renunciation. Someone who dislikes black is someone who opposes renunciation very strongly. Black happens to be the color that most people choose last.
Brown is the color of comfort and security. A person who likes brown tends to be insecure, and yearns for a deep-rooted belonging. Brown in the first position means the person really wants to leave difficulty and complexity behind, in order to embrace the comfort of simplicity—devoid of emotional or physical pain.
Yellow is spontaneity; the color of variability. It is an extroverted color of joy-seekers, and a person who likes yellow shows concern for others.
Red-orange is the passion color. Masculine, it has connotations of sexuality, desire and ambition. It is a warm color, so like yellow; orange is also a sign of empathy.
Green-blue is the color of self-assertion, self-confidence, possessiveness and also stubbornness and self-esteem.
Blue is an indicator of self-centeredness. A blue lover is highly in touch with his or her inner self; with lots of consequent love, affection, tenderness, sensitivity and contentedness.
Would you like to see a sample analysis?
Here’s the color choice and the interpretation of a volunteer:
First choice as dark blue suggests that the person has leanings towards calmness; a desired characteristic. He wishes to put contentedness in front of everything else, without questioning in order to avoid anxiety. He is self-centered in many ways, with lack of empathetic awareness of surrounding people. Very self-confident, extremely self-conscious and focused on perfection of self. Has very high self-esteem, is very possessive and obstinate. Will not agree or change to anyone else’s views or opinions. Is stubborn and close-minded. Is in intermediate denial towards an unfavorable situation which he views as hopeless; halfway between acknowledging the truth and denying it by replacing it with something more favorable. Wishes not to acknowledge the self beneath the outer self clarity displayed through self-assertion. Is not very insecure on principle, and easily changes loyalties due to inner confusion, with display of lack of rootedness or permanence. Concern for others over self is a characteristic that remains secondary, with emphasis on stereotypical self-centeredness. No desire to change, adjust or think originally. Red, nearer to the end, is another indicator of absent characteristics; with more influence on lack of empathy. No concern for others, and lack of passion or drive of any kind. Magenta as the final color denotes the complementary part of the character; the characteristic least displayed in the person. The person has very little sensitivity, and lacks intuitive understanding. Finds it hard to relate to extraordinary phenomena, and cannot accept original mysticism. A characteristic of the stereotype adolescent, magenta in the last position also indicates denial and lack of acceptance for deeper thinking and intimacy, along with obstinate belief in his own self.
