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 color? The latest trend to take over TikTok is the color personality test, which essentially says that everyone is a combination of four colors. In addition to matching you with a color aesthetic like “ocean depth” or “navy fiony,” the personality test provides you with a detailed analysis of your character traits. While some colors 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 color “sprout” represents “a lazy perfectionist stuck in a house.”
Where are these TikTokers getting their results, and how are their color personalities determined? If you’re like me and you headed 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 color and provided with detailed (and occasionally sassy) information about your very own color 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 Color Test isn’t a bot that produces randomized results. It’s based on the True Colors personality profiling system created by Don Lowry in 1978. In accordance with the personality temperament theory, this modernized test measures your levels of blue, orange, green, and gold to create a unique color combination. The two dominant colors 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 color 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 color twins!
