Show Notes

In today's show, we discuss the following questions:

  1. Do people know their colours instinctively? (begins at 1.14 min.)
  2. How can I tell if I have a warm or cool undertone? (begins at 13.49 min.)
  3. What does it mean to lean warm or cool in our Season? (begins at 19.39 min.)

Duration total: 32.03 minutes

We answer a single reader question about one of our favourite topics, the personalities associated with the Seasons. The question is:

Do you ever colour analyze people whose Season does not match the character stereotype for their Season?

We then ask ourselves, do character stereotypes for the Seasons have any value? 

Duration:  29.53 min.
