After you know about your “True Color” personality type (remembering that it’s a “type” and not a science) you will choose ONE person in your life you seem to clash with more often than with other people.
You should attempt to give them the “True Colors” test. They should think that was the end of the assignment. Then, you should score the test and see what color they turned out to be. You may find that they are your opposite. You are not required to turn in their test scores. If you can’t get them to take the test (it would be awkward, etc.) then use the linked paperwork to accurately guess their type.
Then, for a period of time you should interact with this person as if YOU were THEIR color (not your own). Act the way they think people ought to act, say things that they believe people ought to say. Don’t make it TOO obvious. If they get suspicious you will have to have a reason for your “change of heart.” It is fine if, when pressed, you admit it’s all a cultural experiment.
Once you have interacted with them using THEIR preferred world view spend some time in REFLECTION. Write up answers to the following questions and turn it in on the due date – it shouldn’t be more than a half-page. Be prepared to discuss this in class in tribes and as a whole class.
1. What about their “world color view” was most difficult for you?
2. What trait of theirs do you now see as more beneficial than you once thought?
3. How did they respond when you reacted to them in their preferred manner?
4. When would this skill (being able to “speak other colors”) be advantageous?
