... you pick the order in which a bunch of colors appeals to you, and it spits out alarmingly accurate psychobabble results.

Your Existing Situation
Sensitive; needs esthetic surroundings, or an equally sensitive and understanding partner with whom to share a warm intimacy.

Your Stress Sources
Has an unsatisfied need to ally himself with others whose standards are as high as his own, and to stand out from the herd. This desire for preeminence isolates him and inhibits his readiness to give himself freely. While he wants to surrender and let himself go, he regards this as a weakness which must be resisted. This self-restraint, he feels, will lift him above the rank and file and ensure recognition as a unique and distinctive personality.

Your Restrained Characteristics
Wants to broaden his fields of activity and insists that his hopes and ideas are realistic. Distressed by the fear that he may be prevented from doing what he wants; needs both peaceful conditions and quiet reassurance to restore his confidence.
Circumstances are such that he feels forced to compromise for the time being if he is to avoid being cut off from affection or from full participation.

Your Desired Objective
Wants to make a favorable impression and be recognized. Needs to feel appreciated and admired. Sensitive and easily hurt if no notice is taken of him or if he is not given adequate acknowledgment.

Your Actual Problem
Needs to be valued and respected as an exceptional individual, in order to increase his self-esteem and his feeling of personal worth. Resists mediocrity and sets himself high standards.

... freaky.

Mine

and HEY! Why do I have 2 problems and you only have one? HUH??? And why are
these results so accurate? Or seem to be by selecting 10 of the ugliest colors I've ever seen? Huh? why?

Needs peace and quiet. Desires a close and faithful partner from whom
to demand special consideration and unquestioning affection. If these
requirements are not met, is liable to turn away and withdraw altogether.

Your Stress Sources

Unfulfilled expectations have led to uncertainly and an apprehensive
watchfulness. Badly needs to feel secure and protected against further
disappointment, being passed over, or losing standing and prestige.
Doubtful that things will be any better in the future, but inclined
nevertheless to make exaggerated demands or reject compromise.

Your Restrained Characteristics

Believes that she is not receiving her share--that she is neither
properly understood nor adequately appreciated. Feels that she is being
compelled to conform, and close relationships leave her without any sense
of emotional involvement.

Egocentric and therefore quick to take
offense. Able to achieve satisfaction through sexual activity but tends to
hold aloof emotionally.



Your Desired Objective

Intense, vital, and animated, taking a delight in action. Activity is
directed towards success or conquest and there is a desire to live life
to the fullest.

Your Actual Problem

Disappointment and the fear that there is no point in formulating fresh
goals have led to stress and anxiety. She wants congenial contact with
others and scope for development, but feels that her relationships are
empty and her progress impeded. She reacts with an intense and zealous
activity designed to achieve her aims at all costs.

Your Actual Problem #2

The fear that she might be prevented from achieving the things she
wants leads her to play her part with an urgent and hectic intensity.

Re: Mine

Heh, I dunno - hotcrab got two problems when he took it, too, so at least you're not alone.

herbaliser says it's just psychobabble, and bland enough to be universally applicable - like horoscopes - and to a degree she has a point; all the results I've seen so far do have elements of near-universal angst in them in ways that most people wouldn't actually ARGUE with... but damn, none of them apply to me personally HALF as well as the one it spat at ME does. I felt pretty freakin' pigeonholed.

It did get a couple of the minor aspects of things wrong, but in general it hit the nail on the head. Guess there really is something to all this color psychology mumbo jumbo...

Hm. If that doesn't sum up a recent situation of your'n, I don't know what other eerily clairvoyant form-generator could.
