Colorful Personality- Blue "The Thinker"

October 24, 2008

If you are blue, you are referred to as “black” or “dark” temperament due to a high sense of emotions. They are the richest of all the temperaments because they are analytical, self-sacrificing, gifted, perfectionist, and extremely sensitive to emotions. They are introverts. They are moody with extreme highs and lows. When a blue is high they can become extroverts, but when they are low they become gloomy and depressed; during this time they withdraw. They are faithful and do not make friends easily. They are more comfortable in the background. They are extremely dependable. They have a strong desire to be loved by others. They are prone to be suspicious. They are able to see obstacles and dangers ahead; reds rarely see any danger ahead. When a blue is on a high, they can produce great works of art or be extremely creative. These accomplishments are usually followed by periods of depression. They find the meaning of life through personal sacrifice. They seem to have a desire to make themselves suffer and will choose a difficult and sacrificing profession. They are thorough and persistent toward a chosen goal. Blues usually have a high IQ with a creative imagination.

Habits – Blues are planners. When going on a trip they like everything organized well in advance. They study the map and know all routes to their final destination. They tend to follow the law; they are good citizens. They have a natural ability to grow things. They usually maintain and manage a beautiful lawn. Blues have a hard time making decisions. They are rigid by nature and keep a strict budget. Blues tend to place self-imposed limitations on their abilities by underestimating their ability and exaggerating their obstacles.

Work – Most of the greatest composers, artists, musicians, inventors, philosophers, theoreticians, theologians, scientists, doctors, and educators are blues. Blues like to act because it allows them to become someone they are not; extroverts. Other occupations, due to perfectionist tendencies, are the following: carpenters, bricklayers, mechanics, engineers, and plumbers. Blues are humanistic by nature; therefore, they look for careers that help others.

Biblical blues – Many strong biblical characters had a melancholy or blue temperament. All the prophets, Solomon, Apostle John, and Moses were among some of those characters. Moses was an introvert with little self-confidence. He underestimated his abilities and exaggerated his obstacles; even with God’s help. He asked God to provide him a helper; Aaron, his brother. Even though Moses was one of the most faithful and greatest leaders, he never gained victory over his anger, which limited God’s use. Moses ended up dying in the wilderness without entering the Promise Land.
