Find Your Totem
What do I mean by totem? Used here, your “totem” combines your animal symbol with your color. Personality type knowledge is easy to apply once you figure out someone’s interaction style (how they act with others) and temperament (why they do what they do). Animals have been used to represent interaction styles (usually the lion, beaver, otter, and golden retriever as symbols) by several experts. Similarly, colors have been used to represent temperaments (I use blue, green, red and gold). In her book Career Match, Shoya Zichy uses an easy quiz to identify temperament styles. I’ve applied her methodology to set up this quick quiz.
