Colorful Personality- Yellow "The Talker"

October 23, 2008

If you are yellow, your temperament is basically warm, buoyant, lively, fun-loving and you are an extrovert. Feelings rather than reflective thoughts form your decisions. Yellows have an overwhelming ability to enjoy life. When a yellow comes into a room, they brighten up the environment. They have an ability to lift spirits due to their conversation and demeanor. Yellows never lack friends. In the book Temperament and the Christian Faith, Dr. Hallesby states, “His (yellows) naïve, spontaneous, genial nature opens doors and hearts to him. They are genuine, feel joy and sorrows of others, and make people feel important.”

On the other end, yellows tend to forget appointments, obligations, and resolutions. They are always on a new adventure, which makes them seem unstable. They do not like to be alone and are always surrounded by friends or people. They are the life of the party. Their energy makes them appear to be more confident then they are. They are never at a loss for words often speaking without thinking. They are usually envied by others.

Habits – Yellows tend to have erratic behavior. They get side tracked and are procrastinators. They eat anything. They talk so much that they cannot focus on the need for the moment. They are forgetful and find it difficult to manage money, time, and work.

Work – Their bubbly personality and charisma make them extremely likeable. Many yellows are salespeople. Remember the cliché, “He could sell you anything!” They also make excellent actors, entertainers, hospital workers and preachers (mainly evangelist). They can be excellent leaders if blended with another color (temperament). They are extreme people. They should choose careers working with people. Their greatest contribution to life is making people happy.

Biblical yellows – Peter was a yellow! He was always talking, putting his foot in his mouth. Everything he said was wrong except when he said, “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.” (Matthew 16:17 King James Version). He betrayed Jesus, but due to his warm and genuine temperament, Peter came to repentance. Later, Peter became one of the strongest leaders of the early church. In the book of Acts, everything he said was right because he was led by the Holy Spirit, which transformed his “old man” (temperament/character) into a “new man.”
