Fitness Personality

Saturday, May 04, 2013

For one of my challenges this week I was asked to do two quizzes that look at personality traits and can tell you what kind of fitness routine will work best for you. The first was an 8 minute color quiz to find out what your color is, and mine came up GREEN. As I read the results, my initial thought was, "That's not me!" I was concerned that I was not honest in answering the questions. There were some where I was on the fence, so I went back and retook the quiz. I answered differently on those where I was on the fence to respond one way or the other. The second time I came up BLUE. When I read the results, I realized that it was even less close to me. At that point, I went back and read the GREEN info, and I thought honestly about the responses. Yes - I guess that really was me. I am highly attuned to and observant of the physical world around me. My profound attention to detail and outstanding orienting skills influence all aspects of what I do and when I do it. Minimalists at heart, my demeanor is understated, quiet, and unobtrusive. In groups, I tend toward the background, preferring others to take the lead in social interactions.

I think when the dialog all changes specific to exercise, nothing is going to match me. There would have to be a color that signifies laziness. I hate exercise. I do it . . . but I hate it. What color is that?

So back to me being GREEN. "For Greens, the desire to be outdoors overrides all other motivations to exercise."

Really? I hate bugs!

"They prefer to be alone and are in tune to all the vivid details of the natural world. “Greens are great navigators. You won’t see them in gyms very often unless they’re working toward a specific goal, such as training for a mountain climb or backpacking trip."

O.K., so you won't see me in the gym very often, but that's just because I hate the gym. I promise you I'm not training for anything. However, the idea of training for something is indeed intriguing. So perhaps I should train for something.

Suggested Activities: Hiking, orienteering, backpacking, mountain or road cycling, kayaking, rock climbing, windsurfing.

Hmmm . . . I really need to give this some thought, as none of these sound too appealing. Except the road cycling. Something to think about.

    "Really? I hate bugs!" …. "but I hate it. WHat color is that?" emoticon
    Great honest blog! I'm sorry you didn't like your results. But who knows, maybe with a little bug spray, a walk wouldn't be too bad.
