The Beginner's Guide to Colour Psychology

The Beginner's Guide to Colour Psychology
by Angela Wright, FRSA c) 1995
Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts

"She studied psychoanalytical psychotherapy at Queen Mary's Hospital, Roehampton, England, before studying the dynamics of colour in Carmel, California, USA, and identified links between patterns of colour and patterns of human behaviour. She formulated a clear hypothesis, which became the basis of the Colour Affects System, an academically sound and demonstrably effective system that crossed cultural boundaries and, for the first time, enabled colour psychology to be applied objectively, rationally and with remarkable accuracy."

Associated with the element water, preferrably moving

Divine Women put descriptions for the subordinate personalities that are essentially MBTI, but I feel many of them are wrong, so I reordered it.

(Angela Wright was influenced by Jung and her system is similar to Caygill and mainly sanguine/phlegmatic/choleric/melancholic or promoter/supporter/controller/analyzer, according to her book and Irenee's website. One of her students has a nice site with a quiz but the short answers are taken from an MBTI website. MBTI does not overlap well with the above 2 systems and is definitely not what Caygill and Wright used.)
