    Disappointing. The author attempts to distill the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator down to twelve questions and prescribes four different "brain colors" (personality types) based on responses. Upon reading that yellow-brainers (for the record, I'm not a yellow-brainer) "choose careers as CEOs," I was out. Suitable for a workshop, perhaps, but pop psychology nonetheless. I'm not going to rate it because I've been handing out too many one-star reviews lately and it's making me feel guilty in that distinc Disappointing.

    Extremely repetitive. Same chart different chapter. Had some solid information in regards to personality traits, but could have been half the length.

    I was put in charge of doing something 'fun" for professional development week. Since I work overseas and so many of the personality tests/work types quizzes and trainings are solidly culturally skewed- I looked into this Color Your Brain book, hoping it would be a general, non-offensive and yet entertaining thing to do. On the PLUS side: It is fun, simplified, and easy. On the BUMMER side: The concept is utterly un-scientific, the book uses cutesy words, and has waaaaaaaaaay too many conversation I was put in charge of doing something 'fun" for professional development week.

On the BUMMER side: The concept is utterly un-scientific, the book uses cutesy words, and has waaaaaaaaaay too many conversations in which people (supposedly) say things like, "Who! Whoa! Whoa Chuck! You're talking green and I am a blue. Let's re-set, shall we." or "I can see why you are feeling angry. That's the yellow in you, but let's work to getting to green together." Basically, take some Myers-Briggs (which is dodgy anyway) boil it down to its barest, indecipherable essence, add 4 primary colors and VOILA! Color Your Brain.

    Easy to read. Dimensions of the brain colours were plainly laid out. By the end of the book I hard a clear sense of what brain colour I was and also what were the likely colours of close family, friends and associates.

    Easy to understand. Helps with understanding how different each person is - their strengths & weakness. I could easily know what color other people’s brain is now 🧠

    If you've ever wondered what your personality type is, there is a way for you to find out. Sheila Glazov has created a way for you to test yourself. It's quick and easy. If you take the test you will discover if your brain is yellow, blue, green or orange. Once you come to understand the dominant part of you brain and why you do the things you do it will help you understand and value your personality type, communicate effectively with others, work with co-workers, keep energy levels up and stres If you've ever wondered what your personality type is, there is a way for you to find out. Sheila Glazov has created a way for you to test yourself. It's quick and easy. If you take the test you will discover if your brain is yellow, blue, green or orange. Once you come to understand the dominant part of you brain and why you do the things you do it will help you understand and value your personality type, communicate effectively with others, work with co-workers, keep energy levels up and stress levels down and create a more harmonious atmosphere at your home and work. Glazov has created lots of easy to read and understand charts and quizzes. She helps guide you through romance and relationships, family, friends and children. Her methods and theories have been tested in her workshops. If you are not happy with your brain color, Glazov offers advice for you. For example: The yellow brain is the temporal lobe section in which rules are the foundation of your thinking process. A blue brain is the occipital lobe in which physical ability is primary. The green brain is the parietal lobe in which information processing is essential. The orange brain is the frontal lobe which implies constant movement physically and mentally. A green brain may feel trapped in a career of 25 years and may take an opportunity to change and run a business of his or her own and do it their way, thus enjoying the freedom of an orange brain. So if you are not happy with the color of your brain you can change it. This may all seem complex and difficult to understand, but once you start reading and really looking into your own habits and compulsions you will truly be able to identify with your brain color. Helpful clues and quotes are offered here as well as real life examples of people and their experiences in the workshop. If you would like to learn more about the author and why she wrote this book you can find an interview in the back pages. Become a more effective communicator and minimize the stress in your life.

    This book is full of interesting information. Identifying the color of mine and my husband's brains was intriguing. It actually did make me go, "Hmmm. That explains why he does this and I do that." I thought the information could have been tied together a little better. There was also an entire chapter that explained how brain color can influence relationships with children, but it gave no guidance about how to discover a child's brain color. Over all very interesting. I think I will read it agai This book is full of interesting information. Identifying the color of mine and my husband's brains was intriguing.

    As the title says, this is a fun approach to understanding yourself and others. =) Although it is loosely based on the Myers Briggs personality test, I wouldn't necessarily call it a scientific personality test. Still, it's fun to read and it's always nice to have words and a framework with which to help remind us how to best interact with one another.

    This is a simpler version of the Myers /Briggs, or Kiersey?, personality types. For those that don't like to read details, this would be more for you with lots of charts and diagrams and simpler language.

    As written on the back cover of the book, it is a fun read. I enjoyed reading it a lot and chuckled a few times. Can't say the approach the author used is very sceienctific but it doensn't mean it wasn't helpful and enlightining. As written on the back cover of the book, it is a fun read.
