Expanding on my truth

So I am still planning on buying a few items in the T4 colors, but initially do not feel the attraction to them that some T4s are describing on the fb groups.  So I'm going to look at the 12 Seasonal palettes Cool Winter choices as expressions I'm more comfortable with (in addition to the Soft Summer colors from that system).

On color

Miss Cranky-Pants here.  Gotta say that while I can wear the T4 colors and often do, some of them are fugly.  I will try them out, but I'm also going to try the electric and ice versions.

Now I found another system that is an off shoot of the 4 Seasons, in which I am supposedly a Winter.  But in this new system there are 12 types.  Three versions of each Season.

But in this system I may be a Soft Summer (according to my eyes and hair):

my eyes are technically blue, but have orange flecks

Eyes http://www.prettyyourworld.com/theeyeshaveit.html

I'm definitely cool, thinking I was Winter, and the other cool season is Summer.

Soft Summer
Dominant Characteristic is SOFT
Neutral look—not noticeably warm or cool
Hair is often ‘mousy’ with no natural highlights
Can have a heavy velvety look to them, which often
Gets mistaken for a winter.

here are Soft Summer colors:

here are all 12:

Here is the breakdown of color analysis correlations:

1/3 Warm Spring
1/2 Light Spring
1/4 Clear Spring

2/4 Cool Summer
2/1 Light Summer
2/3 Soft Summer

3/1 Warm Autumn
3/4 Deep Autumn
3/2 Soft Autumn

4/2 Cool Winter
4/3 Deep Winter
4/1 Clear Winter

Evening Update

Major health news today.  This all seems silly at the moment.  Husband and I went and bought me Type 4 jewelry to get my mind off it and I will probably keep trying to dress Type 4 for awhile, but I may or may not blog about it.


My grandma was probably a 1/2
look at the round face, yet some soft downward movement
I definitely take after the 2 facial features she has
No I see my 4/2, my mother's hard to type maybe she's the 2/4,
grandma's secondary 2 showing more

here's grandpa and he looks like a 4
grandma's 1 showing more

Grandpa has lots of parallel lines, so he's a 4
I get my 4 personality traits from him
that's mom as a pretty young girl

not sure of his secondary

Preliminary Weeding

Well, that actually helped a lot!  I just went through one section of my closet and sorted everything into Type 2 or Type 4 and hung them back up.  Everything else that was another type will either get dyed or replaced.  That's one step forward.
Type 2 items on the left, Type 4 items on the right

the rest of these clothes need to be dyed or replaced
So initially I thought I was a 4 and realized the logic of DYT is to have congruence with my authority and boldness and not hide it in my clothing.  But then the facial profiling was overwhelming Type 2, so for a period of time I really relaxed into the part of me that is ultra sensitive and compassionate.  Then I got confronted on my Type 4 I guess.  Now I'm lost. Not ready to get off the fence either direction, which I hate.

P.S. We are going into PDX tonight.  Maybe I will go to Good Will again.  I need some more true color items and some silver that is shiny and some that is brushed.

Weekend Update

Well, I expected to spend this past weekend going through my closet and reorienting to a Type 2 life.  I was going to start dyeing everything grey.  Well, now I'm still trying to decide if I'm a 2 or a 4, so I can't really do that project yet.  But I guess the next step would be to pull out things that are actually type 1.  From the seasons approach I'm supposed to be able to wear ice pastels, but I really actually hate them.  So I guess I could dye them... question is still whether to dye them grey or true colors....

Another thing would be to get some shiny silver jewelry to try... I have always preferred silver, so at least I'm either wearing it shiny or brushed.

Greg is definitely a 3:

I'm not so sure about his secondary, it might be 1:


My best color is a cranberry, T4 red.
It's funny, when I first approached this system, I actually knew or thought I was a 4. As an INTJ, I have long known that as a female T I'm in a minority of rationality and occassional directness and even lack of tact at times. But I've also always known we all have it all and I have no lack of feeling. Far from it. So when I did the facial profiling, to me it screamed Type 2. It was then that I figured the 4 was a wall around my true core. Today I'm letting myself be both. More will be revealed.
This is the pic that made me sure I'm a Type 2.

DYT Conflict

8:16 AM: I guess I have a love/hate relationship with conflict.  Today Carol Tuttle posted something in the Type 2 group on facebook.  I reacted very strongly to it and posted that.  In my response, I revealed my Type 4 nature, either secondary or primary (not sure).  I wasn't questioning her point or her passion, just defending my hurt sense from her delivery.  As a 2 or a 4, maybe I have difficulty with 3 energy.  It's so not me.  (And maybe more like my mom?).

I have felt a surge of hope by being in the Type 2 group on facebook - hope that I found somewhere I belong.  Carol even told me that maybe I'm a 4.  So the ultimate feeling that I don't belong anywhere I think I do was unfortunately a bit confirmed, alas.  Wow, I'm going to need to take the day away from this.

5:10 PM: Ok, I guess I'm over it.  But it sure does have me thinking.  This whole process has me in confusion.  I think I need to be careful to not take this so seriously.  There are many systems to look at your self with and this isjust one, a young one at that.  I even think it's a little dangerous that it's a fashion system trying to accomplish some therapy goals outside of that context.  I know it stirs up a lot of feelings.  And today they weren't safe ones.  But it's getting better.

As for whether I'm a 2 or a 4, it occurs to me that I don't have to quickly decide that.  I believe actually in many ways I'm both.  I'm not denying myself unless I force picking one.  I actually thought I was a 4 by my personality but was convinced I'm a 2 by my facial profiling.  And then Carol on very quick analysis said she saw mostly 4.  Exhale.
