-To what extent can a person be a speaker of the way?

He answered:
-If a person teaches the way in order to transcend the tyranny of the
material things and to teach how to transcend feelings, perceptions,

→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: THE LUSCHER COLOR TEST
vertical line Posted on Sep.27.2012 @ 06:37AM EDT by starduster

http://www.amazon.com/The-Luscher-Color-Test-Personality/dp/0671417215/ref=sr_1_13?ie=UTF8&qid=1348738041&sr=8-13&keywords=luscher+color+test

Oh yes, back in the 70s and 80s, I read everything I could get my hands on from Aristotle to Zen about philosophy, psychology, and metaphysics, including the Luscher Color Test, which was very interesting,

If you havent taken it you should.  It may tell you some things about yourself you didnt know.  More usefully, it will tell you a lot about others simply from the colors they choose to wear.  It can tell you what kind of a mood someone is in, or if they tend to wear the same colors routinely it will tell you what they are like in general.

And if you order a copy through Amazon on this site, Zenguide will get credit for it.

By the way, I posted this link because it shows the book and the color cards used, but there are a lot less expensive copies available.

If you use the Zenguide/Amazon search box at the bottom of the page you will get the whole list of what is available for the Luscher color test, from $ .01 used on up to hard cover.

vertical line http://www.axlife.com/luscher/  or try this one   http://www.colorquiz.com/

One can take the test on these websites and get the results.
However, I found that taking the test multiple times .. it came up with very similar answers each time.

Its been awhile, but the colors are evaluated in pairs.

The first two are what you want.

The second two are how you operate to get what you want.

The third set is what you are indifferent to.

The fourth set is what you reject or do not want.

The book is composed of an evaluation of what each color represents psychologically, and then goes on to evaluate different pairings in terms of their placement in the testing sequence.  The book cautions in it forward, *This is not a parlor game*.

I should have listened.  I brought it out after dinner with guests, and the man's commentary said he had dependency problems with his mother.  Unfortunately, a bone of contention between he and his wife, a former girlfriend of mine, was that she thought his mother was constantly trying to run their life, and he would let her. 

He thought I had deliberately sabotaged their relationship trying to get back with her.  Probably didn't help when we went out that New Years Eve and when the ball dropped she laid a liplock on me that you wouldnt believe, probably for more than a minute.  She and I were on the dancefloor, and when I looked over at him it appeared he might rip the arms off his chair.  I didnt see them again for quite a while, or her either. 

When I did see her again 15 years later, long after they had divorced, I said to her that I had always regretted that we didnt get together, and if we ever could Id like to give it a try.  I had always thought she was the sweet girl next door type.  She said, *I dont think I would want to be in a relationship with you, but I would like to have a lot of sex with you.* 

Okay, well thats something to look forward to, someday, maybe.  Yeah, right, sweet girl next door type....

I cant wait until my gray matter melts away, dementia sets in,

and I will be able to remember things from years ago just like they happened yesterday.

I have stored up a lot of memories with just such occasions in mind.

I hope I have a pretty nurse, who shows a lot of cleavage.
