That's a useful guide. I remember reading about this one time when some people wanted to study the calming effects of the color pink. So they figured the best way to study the effect was at a prison, in the room where newly-caught criminals were being held. The people running the prison were all for the study and even helped mix the paint and paint the walls. They found that the color pink did work pretty well at calming the prisoners down. However if they were exposed to the color for several hours then the effects wore off.

Holy crap, I have all the charecteristics that the two colors on my outfit have; Yellow and Blue. (Yes, some may not be desirable, but I like being honest with myself and recognizing them instead of trying to delude myself into thinking I'm perfectly fine; you know your crazy when you stop questioning your sanity.)

And so evaluation of oneself and reflection are good things...even if parts of the truth can be ugly, it's better than trying to stuff them down. In order to have power over something as I always say, you have to know more about it. The real i. If you want to have more power over yourself, you gotta be honest with yourself and the real you.

But yeah, that's freaky that the words in Yellow and Blue sum me up near perfectly; I'm kinda conflicted but in a fairly good way; get's a little confusing some times. Meh, keeps me on my feet, I like it. XD
Stay true. Stay free. Stay safe.

Think of yellow as 100% Hero Boy and the Blue as 100% 204; not polar opposites but clearly different personalities. Currently, and for some time now, I've been a blend between the two. My therapist said she's proud of me for making so much progress; supposedly it's more healthy to be in the medium between the two extremes for those with DID in particular. Sometimes a little more is present than the other, but the dramatic switching all of a sudden has stopped; it's way more subtle now and only comes in spurts whereas before sometimes it would be months before I switched again. I don't feel any need to change names and have just gotten used to/more comfortable with just being one person. I'm just a little more normal now. Not completely, (which i like, haha) but enough that it's no longer too awfully stressful. Only problems now is occasionally detachment/dissociation. Somebody usually has to snap me out of it once or twice a day from my mind taking a little vacation in la la land or wherever the hell it goes lol. Then again.....maybe that whole alien thing was true all along....see, this is what I hate about it. XD Sorry, brainw ent on autopilot again....oh yeah, Color Psychology. Yep, all I needed to say was yellow and blue, lol XD.

Oh, may as well add this.
So, the two color traits combined equal an outward appearence similiar to Tom Welling in smallville for some reason, lol. Just sort of....heavy, burdened, but confident and determined. And, the occasional mood swing; only not quite so much Red Kryptonite level of "oh-shit" XD
I chuckle weirdly everytime I watch that show from the seemingly countless irony points in it that I can relate to. Especially the evil experimental psyche "Sommerholt"; get this, the little kids campus of the Directors is called "Sommerset". The Sommerset program, or Sommerset Academy at Canyon Creek". Oh, and the severe irony that he lives in a small farming community but operates in a much larger city aproximately 100 miles north of him (Chloe said in an episode it was a 2 hr drive to metropolis; that's how long it takes to get to Fairbanks....if you obey the speed laws....it's a long, empty striahgt stretch of highway.....everybody obeys the speed laws; it's not like they can see a car coming from waaaaaaay down the road, lol. XD
And the irony that one of my sensitivities is a a piece of rock; Magnetite. I studied up on it though later and learned sentivity to magnetic fields is more common than I thought, but still, the further irony is that hypersensitivity to earth's environment lists magnetic fields in the indigo culture, and the whole debate on whether they're aliens or not; I personally just evolution taking it's course; astrology may have something to do with it; I have some faith that astrology can have a chance at least having roots in science; if the moon can affect people on earth, it's not too absurd to think perhaps other celestial bodies in space can have some sort of observable impact on life on earth. But yeah, oh, there's another one; I;m sensitive to earths moon; Supes was sensitive to the sun; his souyrce of energy. I feel empowered at night with the moon shining bright; like it's an energy meter; I just feel more perky when it's full and bright. But I've read that most get more irritable and crazy when it's full, so perhaps my ADHD is a factopr because most drugs and chemicals have an opposite affect on us; if yopu took my ADD pills it would be like your high on speed, which is prettty much what ADHD feels like. Like right now. Hyper as hell. XD
Oh, and that's another weird thing. ADHD is common in indigos, fancy that. It's so friggin' weird I just don't take nearly as much serious debate over it anymore. It gets tiring just pondering your existence. Makes ya kinda goofy. XD
