At work, the employees do the Insights program in order for them to understand themselves better, but primarily to help them in approaching colleagues regarding projects and tasks. The personality type which leans towards enthusiastic sunshine yellow wants to experience that they are being taken into consideration when making decisions, but you will not impress the cool blue with enthusiasm – give them the facts.
While there is a lot of truth in these colours (determined after vigirous pshycometric testing), I have reminded colleagues not to “paint” themselves into a corner with these colours. It may happen that you feel cornered as the task requires a different colour orientation than your primary colour, but all of us are ogres; like Shrek we are layered like an onion, an onion with many colours. We are a rainbow nation as individuals so to speak.
I saw the father of this boy (which now 5 years later is 2 meters tall) taking photos or maybe a video with an iPad and decided to do him a favour. The son has a wonderful expressive face which he may or may not have inherited from the father… He is certainly cornering with everyting he’s got. When doing sprints you must be fiery red like your shirt and do it NOW!
Sometimes we need to put on Joseph’s amazing technicolour dreamcoat and ponder and dream and deliberate but sometimes we must take of the coat that limits our speed and just do it.
