For self-understanding, I like a cocktail of Chinese astrology (Year of Monkey for me) and Western astrology (Libra), sloshed together with a splash of colorscope from Paper Source. This is a newer version with slightly different hues than the one I hang on my office wall, but I still choose strawberry.
Brig–I’m going to say you’re a poppy (maybe because Poppy is your nickname?), but possibly a persimmon. There’s one flaw with the colorscope: no one should identify with things underfoot like gravel or cement. And, really, paper bag? Who’s going to go for that one? Someone who suffers low self-regard but is really into recycling?
