Stationery, envelopes, labels, Christmas cards, stickers, craft projects… Paper Source is my one stop shop for all things paper. Always has been, always will be! Their website is kind of like my own personal happy place and is the Holy Grail of pretty paper. Not only does their website have all sorts of goodies to make a paper lover like myself faint at heart, but it’s also a great place to go for color inspiration. The PS color wheel is fresh, modern, and classic with the perfect touch of whimsy to make things fun.

Last night, while shopping the website for some new wrapping paper, I stumbled across their Colorscope chart. My senior project in college was about how colors in advertising affect the consumer so I’ve always found “color-ology” pretty fascinating. The marriage of Paper Source and “color-ology”… yes, please! To form the Colorscope, PS tookΒ their rainbow of signature colors and translated them into personality types. Therefore, the idea is that the color you are most attracted to will describe your personality. Before I get to what our results were, you try it out! Rather than reading the descriptions, just focus on the colors. What color(s) jump out at you?

Here are my and Greg’s top color choices…

Greg’s second color choice was Night and mine was a tie between Pool and Red (hey, it was hard to pick just one!). We were kind of blown away how our color choices accurately described our personalities. We showed this chart to a couple of our family members and their colors described them to a “T” as well! Simply put, the brain is an amazing thing. Who knew the colors we are attracted to could say so much about our individual personalities!

What colors pop out at you? Do you think the description is accurate to your personality? To download the Paper-Source Colorscope, click here.

    I picked “Pool”. It is not completely accurate, but I do seek opinions:)

    Mine was gravel and sunshine because I can’t get enough of gray and yellow these days! I can’t wait to see what my husband picks. It was so right for me!

    Visually, I would pick Pool, because I love that color. But the description is not me at all.

    The ones closest to me are Moss and Chocolate.

    I was drawn to Peacock and Strawberry, which aren’t wrong but aren’t quite right. I’m more Sage, Pool, or Paper Bag.

    I went with Moss, Pool, and Gravel, which are the main colors in my house coincidentally – and they are all me.

    You are so right-it’s hard to pick just one. Sage, Night and Cement popped spoke to me. Sage was closest to who I am, especially the part about needing a refuge.

    I usually don’t ring true when it comes to personality tests or comparisons, but this chart was a dead ringer!

    I sent your link to my mom and sisters and brother today…lol…we have had a blast with this. We especially had fun finding out the color my brother was drawn to…Plum! We wouldn’t have guessed that one in a million years! Described him perfectly….although he’s denying the “tendency to see only the negative”. But how accurate is that!?!?!?!? He should be focusing on the “amazing appearance” and being “charming”! But he’s focusing on the negative! πŸ˜€
