Color Your World with Brain Waves



I've had color on the brain. I've thought about colors best for me to wear and colors to use in my house. When it is winter and day after day is gray, I flood my eyes with magazines, and anything bursting in color. Well, did you know you have a brain color? Me, neither. This was kind of fun.

Your Brain is Purple

Of all the brain types, yours is the most idealistic.
You tend to think wild, amazing thoughts. Your dreams and fantasies are intense.
Your thoughts are creative, inventive, and without boundaries.

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking of fictional people and places - or a very different life for yourself.


Maybe you don't know me, but this is sooo me. My whole life I have been pretending in my mind about being a variety of people, in all kinds of roles. From the time I was in first grade, I was cast in plays and acted. I flirted with the idea of being an actor! I was even voted best actress of my high school class. Did I mention I'm from the same hometown as James Dean?

I was a total failure in my goals this month for my own writing. My accountability partner, Judy, checked up on me, though I've been so busy, I haven't even checked in on her! She is truly the best. I had so many things happen this month, that I wanted to run away a couple times. Life is like that sometimes and the only escape is to dream. Yesterday I was quite down on myself, and my usual optimistic outlook was buried under layers of dullness and dark and gray.

The Groundhog saw his shadow--six more weeks of winter! So, with that on my plate, I decided to start thinking colorfully, and get going on writing that fiction again. This time I'm dreaming I'm the characters--and maybe I'll just get it done.

Come back and let me know what color your brain was, ok?

My brain is blue. I think the characteristics fit me.

Of all the brain types, yours is the most mellow.
You tend to be in a meditative state most of the time. You don't try to think away your troubles.
Your thoughts are realistic, fresh, and honest. You truly see things as how they are.

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about your friends, your surroundings, and your life.

Mine's purple, too. I'm like you...I'm always putting myself in different roles. I love dreaming as different people. (that probably sounds weird, lol)

I've never acted, other than the occasional elementary school play, but I've always had a strong imagination and I've always made up stories, ever since I was a little kid.

I'm purple, too, at the moment. :)

I hope you can get back to the writing, Crystal! For me, it's hard to start back after a break. I've been doing blog interviews and such for the last week and have been days away from my wip. So it's going to take some duct tape sticking me to my spot to get me back into it. :) But I always love it once I do get started again!

My first thought was, that's not accurate. I'm not a real mellow person! But the more I think about it, I can see that it's right.

Hi Crystal -

I'm also purple. Years ago, I earned the moniker, "Sarah Heartburn," for my acting skills. I think I got picked for the roles because I nailed the memorization thing.

As long as my prose isn't purple, I can deal with a brain in my favorite color.
