This insightful color personality test, developed by color psychologist Max Luscher, reveals detailed information about your unconscious mind based on the order of your color selections. Luscher's research revealed that the order in which you selected a series of colors is significant. In fact, not only was he able to determine that the order was relevant, but he revealed that particular aspects of your life could be represented by specific color choices. This goes beyond what colors you like the most. Luscher made a connection between color preferences and how they related to your subconscious mind. There is a meaning behind your single color choices, as well as your color pairs. This report will provide detailed info on both. We'll begin with the first color you chose.
Your Leading Color
The color you choose first symbolizes the methods you use to achieve your hopes, dreams and greatest goals. This is the color you're most drawn to, which indicates that you're turning toward the qualities this color evokes. It may be you want to incorporate more of what the color symbolizes into your life, or that it's a reflection of your current mental state.
Blue. This reveals that overall, you're Calm. Like other people who choose Blue first, you likely tend to take things in stride, without getting too worked up over situations. Others probably see you as mild-mannered and centered in your approach to life.
According to Luscher, Blue in the first position also reveals that you have a desire for either emotional tranquility or physiological rest. You may long to escape emotional conflict or a situation that has been demanding, or you may crave a restful period that doesn't require a lot of physical activity. Overall, you long for a calm environment that is free from stressors, even though you do have the capacity to handle stress with grace. You need for your relationships to be free of conflict, as it's essential for you to be able to trust those who are close to you and be trusted by them in return. You have a quiet spirit, a peaceful manner and impeccable integrity.
This is the color of your personality. Of all test takers, only less than 0.10% have the same exact combination as you. According to Luscher, each of your selections reveals something particular to your personality. The following section will reveal what Luscher believes each color selection reveals about your true self.
Luscher believed that each color has a particular psychological meaning and physiological impact. Unlike words, he believed that colors have universal meaning. This means that no matter your age, race, gender, national identity, educational or socioeconomic level, or personality quirks, colors carry the same natural associations.
Following is some more detailed information about each of the eight colors. Below are Luscher's findings on which positions are most common for that color. You can apply all of this to the information in order to enhance your understanding of your unique color spectrum.
The dark blue color in this test symbolizes the calm of an untroubled sea. It represents fulfillment, as well as truth, love and devotion. It relates to tender emotions and sensitivity. Studies have found that when people look at this color, their respiration and blood pressure are reduced. Dark blue corresponds with the basic biological need for tranquility and contentment. According to Tickle's research, Blue is most commonly chosen in positions one through four, especially in the first two positions. It is the most popular choice for the first position.
Yellow, the brightest color on the test, represents lightness and good cheer. Yellow is radiance, expansiveness, and a release from burdens. Symbolically, yellow is the warm sunlight. Yellow is more uncertain than red; while it indicates flurried diligence, this focus comes in fits and starts. Yellow is progressive, always going toward the new and the developing. Tickle's findings revealed that it is somewhat uncommon for Yellow to be chosen in the first or second position.
As a combination of both blue and red, violet manages to be its own distinct color, though it does lose the clarity and purpose that both red and blue have on their own. Violet is the magical union of red's need to conquer and blue's need to surrender. It is intuition and sensitivity. Violet is also about wish fulfillment and fantasy, a state in which the world is a magical place. Violet, due to its fantastical nature, can sometimes lead to irresponsibility. Tickle found that Violet is the second most commonly chosen color for the first position, second only to blue.
Black is the dark negation of color. It expresses the idea of nothingness, endings and extinction. Black is about surrender and relinquishing. It has great impact on the color with which it's paired, emphasizing the impact of that color. Choosing black in the early positions is an act of extremeness and rebellion, a sign of revolt. When black is chosen last, Luscher believed it is a sign of not wanting to relinquish anything, and instead be in control of your own fate. Tickle found that, more than any other color, Black is chosen equally for each of the eight positions, with a slight tendency to be chosen in the last four positions.
The blue-green color on this test represents perseverance, constancy and firmness. Green symbolizes the most resistant to change, the most self-awareness, the most self-possession. Emotionally, green is a sign of pride. Symbolically, it corresponds with the towering and austere sequoia, deep-rooted, unchanging, and monumental. Green is the color of precise memory, accuracy and logic. Tickle found that it's somewhat uncommon for Green to be chosen first or last, and that Green tends to be chosen toward the middle of the selection process.
The shade of gray used on this test is neither dark nor light, and thus it is free of any specific psychological tendency. Gray symbolizes neutrality, the halfway point between white and black. This is the color of noninvolvement. It also represents the desire to hide or conceal. Tickle found that Gray is most commonly chosen in positions five through eight, especially in the last two positions.
This brown is a darkened yellow-red. Yellow dampens Red's vitality and thus makes it more peaceful. Brown's vitality is less active, and is instead more receptive than Red's. Brown is sensuous, relating to the physical body. It is also about the importance of roots, home and family. Tickle's research found that Brown is the most common color choice for the last position.
The red on this test, which contains enough yellow to give it an orange hue, is the expression of vital force. Red speeds up one's pulse, respiration, and blood pressure. It represents desire, appetites and cravings. It symbolizes the desire to achieve and a need to "do." Red is the present, and it represents all forms of power, from sexuality to innovative change. It is the blood of conquest and the flame igniting the human spirit. According to Tickle's studies, it is somewhat uncommon for Red to be chosen in the last three positions.
While the first color you select reveals your unique approach to life, your second color indicates what you're actually trying to achieve with that approach. In the next section Your First Pairing, you'll learn how your first and second colors combine to reveal information about your current life direction. In following sections in this report, you'll learn about the significance of Your Second, Third and Fourth Pairings as well.
Your First Pairing: What You Want and How You Get It
The first two colors you selected make up your first pairing. According to Luscher, these are the colors that you're most drawn to. The order of your selections here are particularly significant. The first color you choose represents the method you rely on to achieve your goals. The second color represents what your actual goal is. As a pair, these first two colors signify your dreams and the methods you employ to make them a reality.

You chose Blue first and Yellow second. This means that you long for an affectionate relationship, and you're willing to make the necessary compromises to achieve it. You're incredibly enthusiastic and helpful, and you need to receive the same consideration and affection from others. Out of all test-takers, 4.21% select these two colors in the first and second positions.
The third and forth color you chose comprise your second pairing. Luscher believed that your second pairing represents your present set of circumstances and how you are responding to them.

Violet/Black is your second pairing. In relation to what's going on in your life, you feel insistent about having an intimate relationship that's based on understanding. You're compelled to feel identification with others. Among others who take this test, 1.76% chose this color combination in the third and forth positions.
Your Third Pairing: What You Have in Reserve
Your third pairing is based on the fifth and sixth colors you picked. Luscher believed these are the colors you're indifferent to; you neither prefer them nor reject them. The colors in this pairing represent the behaviors that you're repressing. It's also possible you may not be choosing them because you feel they'd be inappropriate. Once your situation changes, you could draw on these behaviors as you see fit.

Your third pairing is Green/Gray. According to Luscher's theories, this indicates that you're holding back because you have a lack of confidence to which you won't admit. You're careful to avoid conflict and you try to make the best of things. 3.67% of test takers share this combination for the fifth and sixth positions.
Your Fourth Pairing: What You're Rejecting
The final two colors you selected make up your highly significant fourth pairing. According to Luscher's theories, these are the colors you are rejecting, which means you're turning away from the qualities they represent. These colors represent a need that you're repressing due to your life situation. Luscher believed that the colors you like the least reveal the most about you.

Brown/Red is your fourth and final pairing. This means you're suppressing your sensuality, which makes you feel isolated because it's hard to give of yourself freely. In your current situation, you feel unappreciated, though you long to be admired. You have the urge to surrender to someone, but you feel like that impulse is weak and must be overcome. Among other test-takers, 1.04% share this color combination in the seventh and eighth positions.
German psychologist Max Luscher first presented his color test at an international conference in 1947, and he continued to study and perfect it for decades. This test was used in Europe by psychologists and physicians. Dr. Luscher personally used his methods to help companies, including the pharmaceutical company Parke-Davis and the car manufacturer Volkswagen, make decisions about product packaging and advertising.
According to Luscher, when colors are chosen for a specific purpose, such as an item of clothing or wall color, the colors are selected for several different reasons, psychological preference, physiological need, and esthetic considerations. In this test, where colors are presented without association to each other or specific objects, he believes that esthetic considerations are subverted, leaving you with a more accurate gauge of the psychological and physiological preferences.
Luscher developed two versions of his test. The "full" test is comprised of several different color panels and requires forty-three selections by the test taker. Because the interpretation of this test is incredibly intricate and requires intensive professional training, Luscher also developed the Eight-Color Panel Test, also known as the Short Luscher Test. While obviously not as extensive, Luscher found that the Eight-Color Panel Test provided a good deal of psychological and physiological information about the test taker. More accessible, this shorter test was used widely in Europe by employers, psychologists, physicians, and schools.
Tickle researched many of Luscher's claims in a survey of over 4,000 participants. In several cases, Tickle found that Luscher's theories had statistical validity. Following are a few of the correlations that Tickle was able to validate though research:
Pair 1: People who chose green first and red second tend to get a rush from overcoming obstacles.
Pair 2: People who chose green third and red fourth tend to be in positions of authority.
Pair 3: People who chose red fifth and gray sixth hold back in life to avoid conflict.
Pair 4: People who chose blue seventh and black last tend to suppress their feelings of vulnerability
