Did you know that a person’s favorite color, can reveal what their personality type is. So once you find out what it is, and you know what the different colors mean, you’ll understand that person better, more than they understand themselves.
The personality of every person you come across including yourself, falls into the 4 primary colors: Red, Blue, Green or Yellow.
These colors are known as the personality colors. What your particular favorite color might be, you will most likely inherit the traits of that color.
Every Person Has A Color Personality Type
Within that particular color type, we act in a certain way. Based on a color, there are certain things that are important to us. We like to talk in a certain way, we like and dislike certain things.
For example, lets say you are meeting a potential new prospect in person.
What if you knew how they liked to be addressed, know in advance what their temperament is like, or know the exact quirks of their personality.
Once you find out what their favorite color is, you’re able to do so.
What A Favorite Color Can Reveal
• Know if they are teachable
• Know if they are money motivated
• Know if they are a leader
• Know if they are creative

What if you knew all this information and so much more about them, after talking to them (anyone) for only a few minutes.
You can instantly gain more information and insight about them, and they have no idea they’re doing so.
Do you think this would impact your business, and your personal life in a positive way?
Would you not agree, you’d have an unfair advantage over others?
