True Colors Facilitator Training
Learn Your True Colors
Blue. Gold. Green. Orange. Have you ever thought about the influence colors have on you? Whether it’s the calming effect of blue skies or the appetite activating red and yellow of a local fast-food restaurant, each color has impact.
Recently, several Extension professionals attended a True Colors facilitator in-service workshop organized by Community, Professional, and Economic Development team members: Dr. Julie Robinson and Emily Smith.
True Colors is a personality profile tool using a color spectrum to provide a way for people to quickly understand themselves and others. It uses four colors to identify four distinct perspectives.
Briefly, the colors and what they represent are:
- Blue—sensitivity, empathy, tranquility, harmony, and depth of feeling.
- Gold—stability, accountability, dependability, and practical sensibility.
- Green—creating, growing, developing, and always striving for perfection.
- Orange—vitality, immediacy, energy, risk taking, and action.

Understanding the color associations used in the True Colors profile gives participants an easy and fun way to identify their spectrum of personality preferences and establishes a common language to communicate and foster healthy, productive relationships.
