I took the "What colour is your aura?" test on Facebook and guess what, my colour is Orange. Well, I've always liked orange, so I'm very pleased. More importantly, I like what the results reveal. Then again, these tests always show the positive side, so it's all good. Here goes:
Orange personalities are the creative adventurers in the color spectrum. They have an inner urge to be creative, active and enjoy life to its fullest. They are also individual and independent and integrate physical and mental qualities. They enjoy the challenge and excitement of forming and shaping physical reality. Orange personalities love to imagine and plan strategies for their next adventure or project and then put those plans into action. They need to be involved in the actual working process and want to physically shape and form their own ideas. They have difficulty sitting back and letting other people do things for them. They are always busy building, organizing and shaping their projects and physical reality. An Orange personality's motivation in life is based on how much pleasure and satisfaction they get out of their own adventures, challenges and creative projects. They want to be adventurous, creative and live out their own ideas.
I usually don't take these tests seriously but hey, that paragraph up there describes me so perfectly, I can't help but believe every word. I do have difficulty sitting back and letting people do things for me. I need to be busy doing something in order to feel accomplished.
Take this morning for example. I built a crude trellis in the patio for my cucumber and soybean plants to climb on. Even though the finished product looks goofy (like crap actually), I am so pleased that I've created something useful out of scrap. These were wooden bamboo poles that were sawn off my bamboo plants months ago.
Then I drove to my parents' farm and got some more work done. I changed into my old gardening clothes, grabbed a wheel burrow full of soil and trundled down to the yard. Within an hour, I planted a whole load of pandan, curry plants, brinjal, ladys fingers and mulberry. I figured I should just get out there and plant something instead of strategising on paper week after week.
I guess that's the difference between me and best friend. She's the corporate type who's used to the methodological way of working and reporting whereas I'm simply the 'just do it' kind of girl. While I like strategising and visualising, I get immense satisfaction doing physical work and putting plans to action. Maybe I'm just impatient but I get bored with analytical and mundane tasks.
But of course, now I know, it's because I am Orange!
