    Every time I take this test I’m surprised at the colors I choose. I’m also surprised at the accuracy of the test.

  • I think my color choices are pretty consistent (warm to cool) but the results (accurate!) change a little each time…

  • Stress: You have a strong desire to be free and uninhibited but you struggle to restrain these desires and maintain a rational and consistent life-style.

    An artist on one side and an accountant/CFO on the other…stress or balance?

  • Surprisingly accurate but missed on a couple of comments.

  • Honestly, disturbingly accurate!
