Dr Ritberger believes everyone can be categorised into one of four coloured groupings – find yours.
Reds are ‘just get it done’ people. Dr Ritberger says: “What you see is what you get. Reds don’t leave you wondering what’s on their mind or what they expect of you. Black and white is the only way they see the world.” Those in this group are hard working, dependable, decisive, assertive and strong leaders. They have to be in control.
Oranges want everyone to get along. They are the caregivers and peacemakers and this gives meaning to their lives, says the doctor: “They have a strong sense of community and need to be involved in activities that will enrich the lives of others.” Key traits include devotion, kindness, loyalty, good listener and a social responsibility. They strive to create an atmosphere of harmony and co-operation.
Yellows are deep thinkers who are keen to make a difference in life. “They’re visionaries who display strong leadership qualities. They pride themselves on their problem solving skills and their hallmark is their competency and expertise,” explains Dr Ritberger. They love a challenge and find great pleasure in accomplishing what others cannot.
Greens want to experience it all. Blessed with rich and vivid imaginations, she says they ‘thrive, flourish, and grow’ when using their creative abilities. Known for creating innovative ideas and novel applications for existing products and services, Yellows have highly developed intuitive skills and would rather trust their hunches than follow their logic. The main characteristics of this group are enthusiasm, passion and they’re emotional and fun loving.
