A lot of people laughed at the idea of predicting job success based on color preferences. This test works, however, even if you’re colorblind. Try it for yourself.
The test is called the Color Career Counselor. It was developed by a psychiatry professor who theorized that color preferences provide great clues into what types of jobs people are suited to and the chances people have of succeeding.
In fact, USA Today assembled a board of 877 CEOs and asked them to take the test to see if it pegged the bosses accurately.
The results showed:
- Successful people have similar color preferences.
- Color preferences can be used to gauge the careers people are better suited to.
Interesting side note: One of the test-takers was a former Southwest Airlines CEO who’s colorblind and who said the results were nonetheless accurate.
