Seasonal Color Timeline

I've chosen dates to place people either by the publication date of a book or estimate of when they started in the field.  It is possible that they have experience that greatly predates book publication dates.

I absolutely LOVE your blog! It is so detailed and informative. I really like how you incorporate all the different tone and color systems. I've had the hardest time over the last year trying to figure out what "type" or "season" I am, but thankfully your blog has loads of information that I can read about. Thanks!

Hi! I just stumbled across your blog today and have been really enjoying it!! I have a question for you though. I am going to be quite long winded with it. I have been trying to figure out which personality I am. It sounds so funny to say it that way, because on one hand, who really cares? I am who I am! On the other hand I just want to find my niche! haha :) Okay, so I have always identified with yellow/sanguine/T1/spring. But sometimes I feel like maybe there is a 5th personality?! (haha!) I have stumbled across a few, who, like me, do not seem to fit in a mold. We all have similar coloring (similar to you, actually!) pale/yellow skin (not rosy at all) dark hair, blue eyes that aren't true-blue (eg. mine are a light blue-grey with Sometimes a tint of green). According to Carol Tuttle I am a type 4, based off of my appearance. I disagree with this! I feel like T4/Winter is most definitely not my primary (at least personality wise) her response is that I'm not "living my truth". That sounds like a cop-out to me.
After reading through a lot of your stuff, and searching out the personalities, I most identify with Pastel Spring, Striking Spring, and Sunshine Summer. I feel like I am some mix of Spring Summer and Winter, in that order. I know being able to say that Winter is last would be like 'yeah! she is a pastel spring! She even just said so!' I do feel like my Winter is too strong to ignore. For example, my over-analyzing all of this is very Winter of me. And sometimes I do have to fight of the melancholiness of Winter. I am also lively, and playful, and outgoing and full of creative ideas (more so than analytical and melancholy) I am also very easy-going and personable and very aware of others. I am peaceful and diplomatic and I have a way of convincing people to do things. What is your take on all of this?

I like this line diagram. It makes me wonder how the folks at the end of the diagram perceive their knowledge: they could argue that so many proceeded me that I had a wealth of information to build on or I'm such a novice. mmm. Interesting. Thanks for sharing.

@ Nicole, I don't know if you will get this, so I might comment on your blog too. I wasn't getting notified of my comments. My guess is you could be 4/1 (if a 4 at all), which is a very difficult combination, or 1/4 Striking Spring. But I'd have to look at more pics of you. The 1/2 and 2/1 combination is also difficult. By difficult I mean, a combination of contradictions :)

Overanalyzing can be Summer as well.
