Christian Mingle Color Code Personality Theory Created by a Mormon
[TBC: The dating service Christian Mingle has advertised its services through a number of venues, including one of the sponsors of last year’s The Bible Mini-Series, of which part was repackaged and became the Son of God movie which generates a good profit for its new age creators, Roma Downey and Mark Burnett (see https://www.thebereancall.org/content/bible-mini-series). Christian Mingle has gained attention in a number of Christian venues, including Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church, where three past or present staff are now part of the dating service’s advisory board (http://www.blackchristiannews.com/2014/03/leaders-from-saddleback-church-and-north-point-community-church-join-christianmingles-2014-national-advisory-board/).
Yet, Christian Mingle’s methodology for pairing up would be spouses is built upon a personality test that owes more to psychology and ancient pagan beliefs. In addition, the originator of the test is a Mormon.]
The Color Code Personality Profile also known as The Color Code or The People Code, created by Dr. Taylor Hartman, divides personalities into four colors: Red (motivated by power), Blue (motivated by intimacy), White (motivated by peace), and Yellow (motivated by fun). Although different groups of people have different demographics, the general breakdown suggests that Reds comprise 25% of the population; Blues 35%; Whites 20%; and Yellows 20%. A 45-question test assesses one's color" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hartman_Personality_Profile).
Taylor Hartman, who created the color code personality profile for Christian Mingle is a Mormon. "Taylor Hartman is the author of the best-selling books, The Color Code (1987), Color Your Future (1991), about becoming more charactered; Sandcastles (2001), about becoming more loving; and Playing Life to Win: A Game Plan for Self Development (2008). He has also updated "The Color Code" under a new title: The People Code: It's All About Your Innate Motive (2007). (http://www.mormonwiki.com/Taylor_Hartman)
[TBC: As Dave Hunt pointed out many years ago, many of these personality tests evolved from the ancient Greek belief that the physical realm was composed of four elements: earth, air, fire and water. Empedocles related these to four pagan deities, while Hippocrates tied them to what were considered at that time to be the four bodily humors: blood (sanguine), phlegm (phlegmatic), yellow bile (choleric) and black bile (melancholy). These characteristics were connected to the signs of the zodiac (TBC, 2/93).]
