To give you a thorough understanding of how other personalities will interact with you, it is important for you to know how your own personality affects the communication dynamic.

As a Green persona, you seek someone to match your composure, need for stability and organization. Of course, you’d be interested in looks and build and so on, but faced with a few reasonable choices, you’d go with the guy who is reliable, caring, sensible and responsible. Looks may actually rank a little lower on your list of priorities as you consider there to be other important things in life too. You are refreshingly balanced and level-headed and don’t like to complicate your life with anything that can be easily avoided, so you’d be looking for a guy who is down-to-earth, unpretentious, kind and supportive, and, like you, treasures simple things in life. You’d be looking for cues and clues about hobbies and interests to see if there is a match. In fact, take a little care not to get too stuck on any one topic in an early date as you need to explore all his interests to make your choice!

You are not shallow and, when you say you prefer personality over looks, you really mean it. Having fun and a connection with someone special on a low-key date goes a much longer way for you than being stuck with someone self-absorbed in a pretentious, posh place.

Men who you perceive to be players are not an option for you, and you’d be on the alert as to whom to avoid. An overly charming or flamboyant style is more likely to turn you off than to turn you on. You’d have to work hard for your questions for it to not sound like an inquisition, but this is not necessarily a bad thing because your ideal man is, in general, very much like you. A man who has a similar temperament to yours will warm to your cautious style and answer your questions respectfully. In fact, he will have a good few areas of his own where he’d want to be cautious, but it won’t seem like something unnatural to either of you. Both you and your ideal date might need some perseverance as you’re trying to find common ground but it will be worth the effort.

You are a Green Persona – the perfectionists of our spectrum.

Your most prominent persona is [memb_contact fields=_Result1] and your secondary persona is [memb_contact fields=_Result2].

Greens are the most detail-orientated personality type as you are driven by accuracy and work well with system-orientated concepts. Details are extremely important to you, as is getting right to the bottom of something. When you have a project to work on, you want to understand it fully and won’t rest until you have the whole thing cracked from start to finish.

This rigorousness works well in systems, finance, engineering, or any other field that demands strict attention to detail, a passion for discipline, and a clear understanding of processes. It also means that when you turn that finely-honed attention to other areas of your life, you can achieve a great deal.

As you are very accomplished at handling your financial affairs, and because you appreciate the finer things in life, it is highly probable that you drive a lovely car and live in attractive surroundings. You appreciate quality and are more than willing to save for as long as it takes to be able to afford it. You rarely have financial trouble, due to your ability to logically plan ahead. Such financial acumen allows you to weather difficult circumstances, should they arise.

The only possible downside of this trait is that, compared with other personality types, you do sometimes come across as being rather careful, if not downright tight, with money.

Not surprisingly, your shopping habits are very sensible, calculated, and at times, a little frugal. In a relationship, this is an area that may lead to frustration if your partner has a more frivolous outlook on finances. Their carefree attitude to money will be very difficult for you to comprehend.

You are normally able to keep an entertaining conversation flowing, and you definitely have a keen interest in other people’s interests, which can be very appealing. Unfortunately, it is sometimes the case that your attention to detail spills over into conversations, and this won’t be what some people are looking for. The whole story of something that happened to you five years ago, complete with carefully-explained detail, however well-told, may fascinate another Green, but other Persona types may find this tedious if not exhausting. Nonetheless, your love of small talk, combined with your wide general knowledge, can make you great fun to be around socially.

There is also the danger that others may experience you as slightly aloof. You are friendly towards everybody, but not necessarily friends with everyone.

Be aware that it can sometimes be difficult for people to break through your seemingly tough exterior.

It is certainly the case that you struggle when people become emotional around you. A direct show of feelings can leave you feeling deeply uncomfortable, if not agitated. So, if conversations start to take on a personal and, particularly, an emotional quality, you are often the first to leave the room, possibly preferring to stand outside with the people smoking rather than having to hear how someone really feels about something. On a date, it is best to be aware that at the first show of emotion you are likely to put up your guard.

However, there are definitely times when you will stand your ground rather than walk away. This is likely to be when someone puts forward a point of view with which you don’t agree or cannot allow passing without comment. Facts that are wrong, arguments that don’t add up, and your antennae start twitching. When this happens, you are perfectly capable of having a fairly serious argument. Watch that you don’t become too dogmatic on these occasions.

It is also possible that you have internally appointed yourself as the police of ‘what is fair’. You can become quite a stickler on these kinds of topics, and the more someone tries to throw you off the scent, the more you are capable of digging in.

Again, take care with this as someone new might draw the conclusion that you are not capable of flexibility, and that you are possibly even stuck in a rut.

As a Green Persona, you are very organised and tidy in how you work, both at home and in the office/workplace. Not surprisingly, you have high expectations from everyone else around you. You will expect everyone to understand the importance of having everything tidy and in its rightful place. Obviously, it makes everything so much easier to find when you want it. No lost keys or mascara for you. This quality inevitably spills over into your dating life.

You are extremely punctual and would expect a date to be exactly the same. A good thing, you probably think. Again, it is perhaps worth examining just how this quality plays out in you. Without necessarily being aware of exactly what you are doing and how others are affected or even perceive your behaviour, you may impose often unspoken rules and boundaries on the other person. This can create a feeling of conflict if you push these rules to the point of being bureaucratic.

However, when you lose your temper, you are sometimes capable of saying things that can, in the longer term, cause harm. You are your own worst enemy when it comes to stress, as in most cases, it is something that you have subjected yourself to.

You tend to put yourself under a lot of pressure, and when something doesn’t go the way you had hoped or expected, you beat yourself up for it, with the resultant anxiety. There is also a tendency to check and recheck things, and you refuse to leave anything up to chance, which again can contribute to stress if left unchecked.

You will make a good match for a guy who is on the lookout for a long and stable relationship. You have a strong sense of loyalty and you are definitely there for the long haul. You are family-oriented and prefer stable relationships to meaningless flings. On top of your loyalty and strong family values, you are highly likely to become financially well off as time progresses. Even if you are not the highest of earners, your discipline and care when it comes to money will put you in a place of relative wealth, compared to others.

[memb_contact fields=_ClientsName] primary persona [memb_contact fields=_Result11] and secondary persona [memb_contact fields=_Result21]

In all cases, except perhaps for two Reds dating, a guy with the same persona as your primary or secondary will be a compatible match.

 

As a Green persona, with your admirably structured and organised way of thinking, you are best matched with someone who can offer the same benefits, so your own persona color would be a wonderful match for you to keep your world in perfect order.  

A Mint persona can also make your world run like clockwork and they will be enormously nice about it while they are at it. Mint’s delicate and friendly approach will smooth any bumps on the road and you will effortlessly get on in most areas of your relationship.

The caring and even-tempered Blue persona may be just the date and mate for you. You both have strong family values and your union can become unbreakable once you learn to deal with a few differences.

Greens and Purples are very similar in nature. You can make a great team where the Purple will steer your relationship in the right direction, thanks to their ability to have an overall picture in mind, while you’ll bring structure and stability to your partnership by taking care of the details.

Click through to see your three most compatible matches below: Green, Mint, Purple.

When you and a Green guy meet each other, you will quickly warm to his friendly but composed demeanour. He is a confident man with a quiet quality to him. He’s head-strong, opinionated and sticks with his principles. You will quickly feel on the same page with this man as he sees and experiences the world in a very similar way to you.

Being two representatives of the same Persona, you share the same strengths and weaknesses which can be a blessing and a curse at the same time. In partnerships with other personas different to you, some of your traits can be effortlessly balanced out but there is little room for balancing in a union of two same personas.

In general, a Green man can be considered your good match but this is a match that will come with certain challenges. While some areas of this relationship will work wonderfully, there will be gaps that can have long-stretching consequences.

You both find comfort in the world where things are planned and arranged in advance. Having a structured and practical outlook on life helps both of you to create an orderly environment that makes you feel safe and content. You will find great comfort in each other’s company as you are wired similarly and are likely to have great insights into what the other needs. Where other Personas might have found your character too detail-oriented and rigid, you will admire each other’s abilities to orchestrate life like clockwork.

Early stages of dating will be pretty smooth sailing for both of you. On the surface, a Green man is a friendly, chatty and helpful guy and you will quickly warm up to his approachable nature. He’s knowledgeable about a lot of things, strives for perfection and stands for what he believes in which are all very appealing qualities to you. During the dating process and beyond he will be considerate, charming and interesting.

Having a reliable and loyal partner is important to both of you and you will provide plenty of desired qualities to check off each other’s lists. You won’t feel the need to either lead or to be lead. A partnership of two Greens is typically a union of two equal partners who see themselves as best friends and team players. You share the same value system and have similar outlooks and principles in life, so building a relationship together won’t come as a challenge as both of you are dedicated and committed once you meet the right person.

You will certainly connect from the place of your key strengths. Both of you are practical and studious individuals, fairly technical in the way you think and how you approach things. You will value these skills in each other and be each other’s biggest supporters. You will each have discovered how to attain success for yourself through hard and consistent work. So whatever is the next long-term goal that you are tackling, be that another degree, a small business or that next promotion, you will always be aware of your biggest fan in your corner. Discipline and determination are qualities that you will admire in each other as you both understand what it takes to achieve success. Neither of you will be accustomed to having had things handed to you on a plate. You’d both be striving to get what you want through hard work, and that is the way you like it.

Covering your bed in flower petals is not something this guy is likely to come up with on his own initiative, but he will happily check your car every morning before heading off for flat tyres or dead battery so you can start your day stress-free. It might not be enough for women of other personality types, but as a Mint Persona, you are not blinded by vanity to miss out on how thoughtful and considerate those gestures truly are.

While this man’s romantic gestures are not going to be extravagantly flashy, it doesn’t mean he is not bothered to make an effort. He simply views romance through the prism of his practicality-oriented personality. Just like with everything he puts his mind to, he doesn’t do things half-heartedly when it comes to romantic gestures and is likely to do a lot of research to find the best gift (that will still be practical) or experience to treat you to. However, those gifts and surprises will mostly to be linked to a specific occasion rather than done out of the blue.

You are likely to come across some challenges with this man in an emotional department as he struggles to openly show his emotions while you, on the contrary, wear your heart on your sleeve. If you take the time to learn each other’s strengths and weaknesses, you will quickly discover how to meet half-way when it comes to talking heart-to-heart. Your Green man will never be the kind of guy to enjoy talking about the feelings, but your kind and gentle nature will help him to open up eventually. The key here is to not push it. You will have to accept it as a given that by nature this strong-willed and composed man doesn’t swing between moods and prefers to carry the cross of his emotions on his own.

However, in your particular case, it is better to risk an offence and clearly verbalise the things that are bothering you than sitting on an issue until it brews into something bigger. It can cause long term damage in an otherwise precious partnership if it does occur. So being simply aware of this tendency can go a long way.

A Green man is definitely a candidate we’d recommend for you to pay close attention to. You are best placed to become each other’s best friends and confidants. This man understands your outlook and value system like no one else and has a huge capacity to greatly enrich your life by being a loyal trustworthy partner than you can always count on.

When you meet a Mint man, you are more likely than not to take an immediate shine towards this guy. He is friendly, likeable and very approachable. You will find yourself getting on with him superbly well on relational and social levels. He has a genuine interest in people and there are very few individuals who wouldn’t find this guy to be an absolute sweetheart. He is easy to talk to and will engage you with stimulating and interesting conversations. Before you know it, you will feel relaxed and at ease in his company.

It won’t be uncommon for both of you to fall into a committed relationship very early on. Neither of you are into mind games and both of you are naturally at your happiest when in a loving union with a like-minded person. A Mint man will effortlessly feel like that person. Your relationship in the initial dating stages will be easy and fun, there’ll be plenty of romance and you will be inseparable. You both are thoughtful caring people and showering each other with attention, consideration and affection will quickly deepen your connection.

Unlike some of your bad matches, this guy finds his fulfilment and contentment in life through his family. He will strive to provide a comfortable lifestyle for both of you, but career is not an obsession for him. He doesn’t live to work, he works so he can enjoy life and spend as much time as possible with people that matter to him.

Due to the strengths of their character, Mints typically do very well at work and creating a certain level of financial stability doesn’t pose much of a challenge to them. So you can rest assured that not only will your Mint guy provide for you, he’ll be there with you at the weekends to enjoy the lifestyle he created.

You might find a Mint guy slightly less reserved and traditional than you would be. He is likely to take the lead, be it in conversation or in the relationship in general, but he does so in such a gentle and non-invasive way that you will easily surrender to him without feeling like you are giving up on anything. It will be a union of two equal partners and you will contribute to the relationship on equal terms. Due to the strengths and weaknesses of your characters, the best way to balance out this partnership is by letting him be the decision-maker on anything to do with planning and finances, while you take over the emotional and social side of your relationship.

You are quite creative and innovative in how you approach things and romance holds a high priority in your books. You appreciate novelty and spontaneity more than your Mint man does so you will have to be the one to fuel your relationship with exciting experiences. Having said that, a Mint guy is not a stranger to organising leisure activities, but he is likely to have a more practical approach to most things than you. He likes for things to be planned, budgeted and arranged in advance. These are all strong characteristics of his nature and what he does best so before you have a temptation to rebel against such predicted lifestyle, ask yourself whether you can do it better.

More likely than not, you won’t rival your Mint man on this subject and quite frankly taking care of the practical things is not something that excites you, so before you regard it as an issue, recognize what a gem you have on your hands who is actually voluntarily willing to take those worries off your shoulders. If you balance out your strengths the right way, your relationship will be fuelled with thoughtful romantic surprises as well as perfectly planned holidays and experiences to share together.

This relationship can incur minor challenges and more likely than not you’ll be the one stirring the pot. Your Mint guy will often try to micromanage you as in his eyes you can lack stability and consistency in some of the things you do. You are much more relaxed about handling money, time and planning than a Mint and this is likely to cause friction if not handled properly. You are also prone to clutter which is something that doesn’t sit comfortably with a Mint. While you might feel that life is for living and not worrying about silly things, you often end up dismissing quite important issues as ‘silly stuff’, so it won’t harm you to actually listen to your Mint partner as he is much more down-to-earth and efficient than you are in many matters.

Fortunately, these issues are not posing any long-term threat to your relationship if you address them early on in a relationship. Neither of you are confrontational and you both have a great sense of tact so compromising is something that comes easily to both of you. If you make the point of not sweeping the issues under the rug and deal with them as they come along, any problems you might have will dissolve pretty effortlessly.

You and a Mint guy have a lot of touchpoints in common which will make the flow of your relationship smooth and enjoyable. You strive for similar lifestyles and you go about getting it in a similar way. You have a great capacity to be each other’s best friend, trusted partner and caring companion. You will effortlessly bring the right amount of romance, adventure and excitement into each other’s lives and this dynamic is not likely to wear off as your relationship progresses.

This is probably your best match as a Mint guy will feel like nothing short of a soulmate for you. His personality compliments yours in pretty much every area of life and his strong traits tick most, if not all, of your ‘boxes’. This union will be highly rewarding for both of you and is very likely to withstand the test of time.

Green and Purple personas share a significant number of similar personality traits. In fact, there is hardly any other man who would be so much on the same page with you in the most important areas of life. You are both conscientious dynamos who effortlessly insist on getting things done promptly and efficiently. You are wired similarly and are likely to have great insights into what the other needs. This will create a great capacity for working well as a team.

When you meet a Purple man, you are more likely than not to take an immediate shine towards this guy. He is friendly, likeable and very approachable. You both have a similar outlook on what kind of relationship and family you’d like and for both of you, those things hold the priority above anything else. You’ll be pleased to discover a devoted and reliable partner in your Purple man. He will work hard to provide a comfortable life for both of you and will truly make you feel safe and cared for.

Both you and a Purple guy are pretty much individually minded and independent in how you think, but unless there is something that clashes with your values you might often go along with what the majority wants for the sake of harmony.  You are more inclined to follow rules and traditions while your Purple guy might be a bit of a maverick who might often do the opposite to what everyone might expect.

Purples, paradoxically, may tend to be a bit quieter than you are. You can be quite chatty while a Purple is a deep thinker, even a deeper thinker than you! But, when a Purple lets loose with a volley of well-placed comments you may only work out what he had meant hours later! His speech is often shrouded in quick-fire metaphor and laced with satire or sarcasm.

So, now that we have briefly introduced you to the Purple let’s have a look at what will make this a potentially successful date and conversely what can go wrong in this relationship?

You are superbly matched on many aspects like ambition levels, outlook on family and traditions, key values and principles. You are very much in sync with this man even on small things like time-keeping and sticking to original plans without changing them last minutes which both of you find unsettling when dealing with some other Personas. A Purple guy has a great capacity to be a breath of fresh air in your world without upsetting its delicate balance. He appreciates stability in life just as much as you do but will also bring colourful notes of romance and adventure into your relationship. He has an innovative and creative streak and he will often surprise you with generously romantic gestures that you will cherish for a lifetime.

If this man takes a liking to you, you will soon feel the effects of his romantic impulses. He can sometimes become quiet-ish when he draws into his own thought world, this is something you’d need to get used to with him.  But when he is present with you, you will be entertained by his quick wit and kept riveted by his advanced knowledge on so many topics.

On the quiet, both of you tend to be fiercely independent. Even though both of you might portray a very compliant Persona to others, they would be foolish to think you’d always go along with their wishes.

This guy is likely to spark a mischievous side to you. When you are in each other’s company you will have endless fun, as if you are in your own little bubble. You’d have to watch yourself that you don’t get drawn into his bad habits, though. For example, when he gets engrossed in his own world of projects or solutions or causes he tends to neglect much going on around him, even to the point of not eating. Best scenario is if you remain the together one in these times and keep things going without resentment or a bad attitude. The worst scenario is if you drop into the same pattern and also let things slip. The two of you would need to have some understanding and system around this. If you don’t you may miss key appointments, leave important bills unpaid, and generally spiral in and out of having a cluttered environment, which others might consider as untidy.

Both of you may have strong tendencies of subtly wanting the other to fit into your pre-conceived mold of normal. You’d be likely to push for things in subtle ways. Mr Purple will be far more persuasive in trying to change you into conforming to his ideal vision of a partner, and though you might comply for a while this will inevitably cause you to wander into feelings of resentment. On the other hand, your tendency of passively arguing your corner through the dropping of remarks and hints is likely to always be noticed by the Purple but also to be ignored out of principle.

Neither of you are particularly confrontational in nature. And to preserve the peace you may rather frequently sweep things other the carpet. This is not something that would be sustainable, as it will cause you both a lot of stress. Best to find for yourself some way to communicate about your feelings.

The positives of a relationship like this by far outweighs the negatives.  So this relationship with a Purple is well worth pursuing. It would however serve you as a couple really well to make sure that you are both fully aware of their own blind spots, as well as your partners. If you both decide to love and care for one another unconditionally you are well able to shelter yourselves from the issues mentioned creeping in. But where you allow issues like these to creep in they are more likely to become the norm than not, in which case you may spiral into years of relative unhappiness without knowing how to improve the situation.

[memb_contact fields=_ClientsName] primary persona [memb_contact fields=_Result11] and secondary persona [memb_contact fields=_Result21] 

The types of men you may best want to avoid include the impulsive types, like the Yellow, Orange and White personas. Not only do these personas never allow enough time to plan anything properly, but they also frequently skip over details that you will regard as essential for any type of normal communication. When it comes to timekeeping, Yellow personas are the worst offenders on this list. They tend to chop and change their plans at the drop of a hat. They can come across as brash and rude and don’t seem to think before they speak, which will, without a shadow of a doubt, rub you the wrong way.

The ambiguous White persona that seems to dream their way through life will leave you wondering if they will ever deliver on their grandiose plans. Their shallowness and scattered way of thinking will be a source of constant friction.

And lastly, you should give the forceful and determined Orange persona a wide berth as you will struggle to keep up with their pace, as well as lack of obvious organisation in pretty much every area of their life. Also, both of you can get quite temperamental, which will lead to heated arguments. It takes both of you a considerable amount of time to move on from an argument and, in many cases, the chemistry flames will quickly cool down as you’re trying to recover from the aftermath of an argument.

Disclaimer, and a reminder of our T&C's: We are providing you with information and context. If you really want to make a relationship work, you probably can. We are making you aware of what effort might be involved and the dynamics you may face. Bear in mind that it takes two to tango! Also consider that we aren't aware of your potential partner's culture, experiences or any other dynamics. Our content is based purely on personality traits, based on your answers to our quiz.

When a White man appears on your horizon, you will be taken in by his inimitable creativity and energy. You’ll be amused by his entertaining personality, outside-the-box thinking and quirky outlook on life. He will draw you right in with stimulating and daring conversations that will often take unexpected turns as this man is not going to be phased out by your straight-forwardness and will surprise you with his level of irreverence.

A White man doesn’t ooze testosterone and dominance, but his composed self-assured outlook on life will certainly spark your interest. He brings an element of surprise and impulsive fun into everything he does. With their gentle and kind natures, these men wrap their partners in cotton wool.

You might be asking yourself now why in the world would we put this amusing man in your bad matches. As enticing as a union with this guy may sound, both of you will soon feel a vast gap between your value systems and principles. As you uncover a gap after gap in your outlooks on life, the initial fascination will quickly wear off.  

A guy with a White persona is on a life-long quest for improvement. He gains fulfilment from shaking things up with innovative ideas and solutions. This might feel like fun while you are in the dating stage, but will cause you plenty of distress in everyday life if you were in a relationship.

It will appear to you that this guy never switches off. His mind is constantly buzzing with ideas, issues, problems and solutions. He thinks out loud and bounces his ideas off others. While you might initially be interested in what this guy is up to, you will quickly feel that most of his plans and ideas lack substance.  He doesn’t think the details through the way you would and his ventures and plans will be questionable in your eyes. To you, he’ll almost appear fidgety and uncommitted as he jumps from one idea to the next without necessarily bringing any of them to the logical resolution. These tendencies will puzzle you on best days and infuriate on worst.

You are something of a headstrong perfectionist, determined to get what you want in a way that you want it. You value stability and don’t stop until things are under control and operate steadily. Once it’s achieved, you act upon don’t-fix-it-if-it-ain’t-broken principle. You work hard to make sure that every area of your life functions like clockwork and won’t rush to change anything unless there is a very good reason for it. None of those things matter to a White man as he is on a quest for novelty and adventure.

It will appear to you that this guy never switches off. His mind is constantly buzzing with ideas, issues, problems and solutions. He thinks out loud and bounces his ideas off others. While you might initially be interested in what this guy is up to, you will quickly feel that most of his plans and ideas lack substance. He doesn’t think the details through the way you would and his ventures and plans will be questionable in your eyes. To you, he’ll almost appear fidgety and uncommitted as he jumps from one idea to the next without necessarily bringing any of them to the logical resolution. These tendencies will puzzle you on best days and infuriate on worst.

In fact, he’ll be puzzled why you are so hung up on irrelevant (in his eyes) details. This dynamic will stretch to many areas of your life, not just conversations. He’ll come up with a perfect holiday and will fail to make essential arrangements. He’ll start remodelling the kitchen and will switch to another project halfway through. He’ll make plans and will then chop and change them last minute simply because he came up with a ‘better’ idea.

You will struggle when it comes to doing things together as you want to make an educated decision by evaluating the task ahead from every angle while your White guy will jump head first and try to make sense of things along the way. Neither of you will agree with each other’s approach which will result in a never-ending string of nagging.

You are as different as chalk is to cheese in most practical aspects. This guy is an impulsive spender and sees money as a means to an end. Needless to say, having a joint budget would become a source of endless debates and arguments. Equally, his time-keeping skills will leave you fuming on many occasions as a White guy applies very flexible parameters to time. He often gets lost in what he is doing and will underestimate and overshoot on time. These two simple differences alone will cause endless arguments between you and your White man.

You live off lists. This is how you organise your world. Making a White persona do something off a list will be equivalent to making a hyperactive child sit still in one spot. Any micromanaging applied to this guy will yield no results as he will ignore you and your demands pretty much out of principle.

Things are not going to get any easier in the emotional department either. You like to keep your emotions to yourself, be they positive or negative. A White guy will regard your reserved demeanour as cold and uninviting. You, on the other hand, will quickly get tired of his overly sensitive and almost needy nature. His need for reassurance and appreciation will quickly become a source of irritation for you as you’ll struggle to create an emotional bond that will be comfortable for both.  There is nothing in this partnership that would be fulfilling to either of you once the initial fascination wears off. Neither of you will feel like you are on the same page because the fundamental differences in your character and outlook on life will make you feel like you live on different planets.

It would be hard to dislike a Yellow guy when you meet one. He has a magnetic personality and is expertly equipped at being charming. He has an innate ability to heat up the temperature of any room he enters, sometimes by pleasantly livening it up and other times by inadvertently throwing a cat amongst the pigeons with his words. Yellow Personas know what they want in any context and they are confident that they know how to get it. This guy is a textbook extrovert who can effortlessly demand all the attention in a room. While this might seem quite amusing for you at the start, as an introvert, you would quickly tire out of your partner’s never-ending fountain of energy. You recharge your batteries in solitude while this guy gets energised in the maddening crowd. Before you know, you’ll feel emotionally and mentally depleted in this guy’s company.

Should you be tempted to date this charming guy, you will soon discover that he is too shallow for your liking. He will have done amazing things in life and have plans to do even more yet. His life might seem like a carnival but you will quickly discover it lacks things that you value in a relationship. Because this guy’s life moves at a speed of light, there is little time left to develop what you consider a deep emotional connection, there is no space for long meaningful chats or time for enjoying simple things life has to offer.

He, in turn, might feel that you’re missing out on the bigger picture by concentrating too much on detail. He’d be impatiently waiting for you to cut to the chase while you unpack something from the one end to the other.

You’ll rarely find the conversation fulfilling as he’ll be repeatedly cutting you short and hijacking the conversation in the direction HE finds interesting. As if that wasn’t enough, debating with this guy is not going to be easy either. You are a confident communicator when you know what you are talking about, and indeed you’d rather not say anything if you didn’t know what you were talking about. Just making things up for the sake of it is beneath you. Your prospective Yellow man has the verbal ability to outsmart most people like a professional poker player, even when he doesn’t have the right cards. Jumping into a discussion without having all the information is not a problem for this guy.

He can win a debate by simply exhausting his opponent with the sheer weight of his relentless arguments. He will have met a worthy opponent in you as you have the capacity to refute his arguments with fact after fact, often leaving him no room to manoeuvre.

However, you are not going to find these conversations mentally stimulating as this basic dynamic will inevitably leave you feeling depleted and exhausted.

Yellows often say things before thinking of the consequences, and at times they may blurt things out on purpose as they irreverently take pot shots at other peoples’ holy cows. It shouldn’t take too long for this to hit a nerve with you.  Although you can yourself be a cynic at times, you generally respect other peoples’ views and beliefs and would expect people that you associate yourself with to do the same.

You don’t have common ground to stand on with a Yellow guy when it comes to crucial values, outlooks, principles and even simple things like time-keeping. On top of that, you will severely struggle with the way he takes risks, prioritises things in life, handles finances and goes about his living environment.

You are not a tidiness freak, but a Yellow guy can take scattering things about to a whole new level. He’d own really nice things and have tastefully furnished surroundings but you’d get the feeling that he is a bit careless in looking after his belongings. In a situation where you live together, you’d be constantly faced with random clutter that he is never bothered to tackle simply because he’d rather do something fun than do the cleaning.

You will struggle in principle with the way he takes risks, prioritises things in life, handles finances and goes about his living environment.  You may not necessarily be the tidiest person around but your Yellow guy can take scattering things about to a whole new level. In a situation where you live together, you’d be constantly faced with random clutter that he is never bothered to tackle simply because he’d rather do something fun than go cleaning. He is just too busy with his next exploit to want to care. He has the same carefree attitude to time-keeping. He will be habitually late and won’t even be apologetic about it. In his eyes, it is always an important cause that delayed him. You will find this behaviour disconcerting and highly disrespectful.

His delightfully impulsive ways must invariably spill over and affect his finances, something that you would find very unsettling if your own financial stability was wrapped up with his. Ironically, Yellows tend to make a lot of money because of their drive, persuasiveness and unbendable optimism. But they spend it just as quickly. This is of no concern to them as they know they can make it again, but for you such instability can be very stressful, especially if there are children involved.

Jealousy can become a serious issue as you will struggle with your Yellow guy’s popularity. It will take a woman with a strong constitution to be dating this popular guy. He is perfectly capable of being in a faithful partnership but will insist on having a life outside of your relationship.

As you aren’t a match for his pace and his persuasive ways, you may continuously feel at threat and that is bound to have consequences. As a Blue persona, you would much prefer to be in a safe and stable relationship, not one that resembles an emotional rollercoaster.

There is very little in this union that either of you would find satisfying. You want different things from life and will hardly ever feel like you are on the same page. This is not a guy who will help you to fulfil your desire of having a closely-knit relationship with a man who is your trusted partner and your best friend. Instead, you will find yourself living your life on someone else’s schedule and according to someone else’s principles.

When you and an Orange guy cross paths, it won’t be unusual for you to find yourself attracted to him. He is a confident man with a vibrant quality to him. You will find his charismatic yet dominant nature, adventurous approach to everything he does, and his enviable drive to pursue his goals admirable and intriguing. Just like you, he is knowledgeable about the things he engages people on and is clear on what he stands for.

It is quite possible that you and an Orange guy could manage a few dates and enjoy one another’s company, but as you get to know each other better, you will start noticing that there is hardly anything you completely agree on. While most of those things are not necessarily deal-breakers on their own, they can cause a lot of friction when piled on top of each other.

You are both headstrong perfectionists, determined to get what you want in a way that you want it. However, you are moving towards two ultimately different things in life.

As a Green, you value stability and don’t stop until things are under control and operate steadily. Once it’s achieved, you act upon don’t-fix-it-if-it-ain’t-broken principle. You work hard to make sure that every area of your life functions like clockwork and won’t rush to change anything unless there is a very good reason for it. An Orange man, on the other hand, is on a life-long quest for improvement. He gains fulfilment from changing and shaking things up, sometimes for no other reason than simply craving novelty and new experiences. This might not cause much trouble while you are in the dating stage, but will cause plenty of struggle when you decide to move in together. After the novelty of living together wears off, your Orange man will seek ways to freshen things up while you will only be starting to enjoy things settling down.

While your conversations might have been flowing effortlessly during the dating stage, once you get comfortable with each other, your communication dynamic will take a sharp turn, and unfortunately not for the best. You both pride yourselves on being efficient but do it in contrastingly different ways. You believe that attention to detail is what gets things done flawlessly. An Orange man believes that time is the most valuable commodity and being overly detail-oriented is a waste of a valuable asset. This will translate into a lot of different areas of your life, be it just talking or trying to get things done as a team.

An Orange man can get highly impatient when you get too carried away with details or get too focused on an aspect he regards as insignificant. You will find it frustrating when he jumps in and hi-jacks the conversation onto different subjects. You will struggle in a similar way when it comes to doing things together as you will want to make an educated decision by evaluating the task ahead from every angle while your Orange guy will jump head first and try to make sense of things along the way. Neither of you will agree with each other’s approach which will result in a never-ending string of nagging.

An Orange man would be quite good with handling his money, but he is nowhere near as prudent and efficient in the finances department as you would be. He is likely to view money as a means to an end, and will easily and impulsively risk investing substantially in opportunities he believes in. You would find this approach disconcerting. You are much more likely to grow your money dollar by dollar in a well-selected savings account. Needless to say, having a joint budget would become a source of endless debates and arguments.

While on the surface an Orange guy is a typical Alpha male, he has a soft streak to him. His lifestyle is very fast-paced and he is living his life on the edge. Once in a while he will need to withdraw from his chaotic schedule into the warm and affectionate arms of his woman. As a Green persona, you hardly have the capacity to provide this man with the level of affection he craves. Display of emotions is not something that happens easily for you so it will take you a while to let this guy into your space to the extent that he’ll feel truly welcome. You will also struggle with the Orange’s tactile and overly protective manner. There’s no bigger boost for an Orange man’s ego than seeing his woman trust him enough to surrender and let him take care of her.

You are too independent and self-sufficient of a woman to allow him to do it to the extent he wants. He’ll be too proud to ask for either affection or to give him room to wrap you in cotton wool, so in most cases, any romance that exists will dwindle when this dynamic starts drifting you away from each other.

Due to both of your Personas being rather headstrong, a relationship like this will see many an argument, and because your communication styles are so different, these arguments can often spiral into full-blown shouting matches. As neither of you are likely to back down and will stubbornly hold your ground, previous issues will easily surface again as they aren’t ever really seeing a resolution. This is not a partnership that will give either of you a sense of closeness and satisfaction, and since you both value and want different things from the relationship, you will eventually feel lonely in this unfulfilling union.
