What is Seasonal Colour Analysis?

What is seasonal colour analysis and how can understanding your seasonal type help you?

Seasonal colour analysis has been with us since the 1970s and relies on grouping people into four colour seasons. 

There is research dating back to ancient times detailing the four humours.  These are the Sanguine, Choleric, Phlegmatic and Melancholic.    We each have some traits which you may quickly recognise, with one season usually being the more dominant.    In truth, we are a mix of all, a unique mix. 

I think I prefer the more modern classification of seasons, don’t you?   I’m not sure I’d like to visit a friend and tell her I’m a Choleric/Phlegmatic, but an Autumn/Summer linked personality sounds so much better to me.

Understanding the strengths and challenges can help us to communicate more effectively and be happier with who we are.

The seasons are Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.
