I love green and would say its description is a fairly decent match for my personality. The only exception is "jealousy." That's not to say I have no negative traits . . . it's just that jealousy isn't a frequently recurring one!

How about you?

I'd say that I'm a multi~coloured personality . I love and wear lots of different colours ! If I had to choose , I would say leaning towards the browns/oranges ... that would be fairly close ...

Yay!
I'm purple (had a BIG purple pen collection in HS)

Deb - I always wondered why jealosy had to be green? maybe others are jealous of you!

Mish - well, brown is all the other colors put together, isn't it =)
