This is a more interesting question than is reflected by the comments on this poll. In fact, there is a study in the UK on this subject.

About 12 years ago, my granddaughter participated in the UK study for her science fair project. She concluded that color DOES have an predictive value in a cat's personality but that the strength of the impact is mitigated by the environment in which the cat lives and interacts. She won first place in her grade at the science fair.

Color plays an important role in many peoples choice in adopting a cat. There's a reason cat lovers say things like, "I just love a tuxedo!" or "I have a thing for ginger cats!" Color does tell us something about a cat's personality!

Based on many years of cat ownership I would say no
