Color Systems

So I have links to various 12 seasonal palette color analysis web sites in the right column.  As you may all know, the original system was Color Me Beautiful with the four seasonal types.  The spin off systems basically account for each season blending with the others.  So there are 3 subtypes in each season.  There also is a system called Color Me a Season that has these 3 subtypes and retains the absolute version of each season.

The different systems have slightly different names for the seasons.
In no particular order:
(and anything left out is purely a google search oversight on my part)

That's neat that you made those lists of the different categories. I was comparing them in the yuku forum and I don't think it's just a different-name-for-the-same-thing situation.

In one thread, there was a true something next to a clear something & the colors looked the same! Surprised me.

Also, I have never seen the term "cool spring" but have seen "warm spring" and am wondering if that's what you meant?

By the way, I think I would prefer not to be quoted on the world wide web. I would have worded it differently, I am sure, if I were posting it outside of our forum.
