Orange personalities are the creative adventurers in the color spectrum. They have an inner urge to be creative, active and enjoy life to its fullest. They are also individual and independent and integrate physical and mental qualities. They enjoy the challenge and excitement of forming and shaping physical reality. Orange personalities love to imagine and plan strategies for their next adventure or project and then put those plans into action. They need to be involved in the actual working process and want to physically shape and form their own ideas. They have difficulty sitting back and letting other people do things for them. They are always busy building, organizing and shaping their projects and physical reality.
An Orange personalities motivation in life is based on how much pleasure and satisfaction they get out of their own adventures, challenges and creative projects. They want to be adventurous, creative and live out their own ideas.
Oranges mainly live within their own heads. But in contrast to a Yellow-Brown personality, they can't sit by idly and watch others make things happen. They have too much physical power to create, shape and form their own ideas and projects. They plan and prepare their creative projects extremely well because they want to challenge themselves and others. They want to show themselves that they can achieve the results they were aiming for. Conquering and overcoming the obstacles of the impossible, either within their own mind or within physical reality, is primarily what they are looking for. They also need to convince others of their abilities to be in control of their own success. For these creative adventurers, life is real, concrete and tangible.
Oranges have a need to be in charge of their own physical, emotional and mental reality. Letting go would mean to lose control. The processes of letting go and relaxation are not preferred Orange qualities. It is difficult for them to sit still and relax their body or their mind. Oranges are either physically or mentally active all the time. The two primary outlets for their adventurous energy are to be creative from either a physical or a mental standpoint.
Physical Orange personalities channel their energy into adventures and pleasures of the physical world. They thrive on excitement, adventure, thrill and danger. They enjoy challenging and conquering all facets of physical reality, to "boldly go where no one has gone before." They love to discover their own physical limitations and then expand upon them. Many Orange personalities will create unusual, risky and often dangerous situations for the purpose of feeling more alive. They love the rush of adrenaline when faced with danger or death. The prospect of having a family sounds very conservative to these adventurers. Philosophies and concepts of spirituality are mainly empty talk and have little or no meaning.
Many Orange personalities were found in the past, especially in the pages of history where physical adventure and courage were needed for survival. Traveling into new territories, discovering new lands and conquering nature or other nations was the way of living. In today's civilized society these qualities are not needed as much as they were back then. This would explain why most Orange personalities channel their energies into physically creative projects and a series of adventures.
A large percentage of Orange personalities channel their stimulating and exciting energies into mental and creative activities rather than physical activities and adventures. They are active with their minds and apply their fresh ideas into physical reality. They enjoy working on new, daring enterprises and projects which promise to be challenging, exiting and adventurous. These courageous people love to do business, create companies, sell and market products, plan and generate strategies and organize and work out deals. They are not afraid of going into the details or doing the necessary work, but they prefer to stimulate and energize their ideas and projects. It is important for them to be actively involved, to get things going.
If they are in harmony and their personality is balanced, Oranges can be inventive and filled with creative ideas. They love the planning and creating of new strategies for their next physical and/or mental adventure. They live their life on a physical and creative level with power and confidence. Oranges who are in harmony have found a way to express themselves and channel their strong creative energies into positive projects and activities.
Orange personalities have the capacity to mentally tune into other peoples minds or into virtually any situation they may wish to conquer. They also have the ability to figure out what patterns, risks and advantages are involved in those same situations. This ability to tune into and understand other peoples thinking is widely used, especially in the areas of sales and marketing. However, it is not uncommon for this same ability to be strongly misused as well.
If you ask Orange people they will agree that it is difficult for them to feel peaceful, quiet or calm. It is also extremely difficult for them to stop their thinking or planning process. Their physical and mental energies are very powerful and sometimes create an inner pressure, an urge to express and create.
Many Oranges integrate physical and mental creativity. They love to plan, organize and develop new devices or ideas. Then they want to form and shape those ideas until the stage where they can bring them into physical reality. They have a need to be involved in the active creation of their ideas.
Orange people love physical activities which are thrilling and exiting. They enjoy sports such as surfing, parachute gliding, mountain climbing and other similar action filled events. They need the excitement, pleasure and fulfillment provided by physical movement and adventure. They prefer individual, competitive sports to organized, team sports or challenges. Oranges often feel uncomfortable if they can't move their bodies or find themselves engaged in the wrong type of activity.
If an Orange personality is out of balance they can be egotistical, jealous and self centered. They are only interested in their own actions and ideas, no matter what effects this might have on others. They often show no affection, caring or compassion and can be distant, cold and aloof.
In business, and especially sales, you might regularly be confronted with out-of-power Orange personalities. Because they are not connected to their creative power, they try to manipulate, control and overpower others. On occasion they will try to find a "cheap" way of achieving results and success. They use their powerful courage and adventurous energy to compensate their disconnection with both themselves and their creativeness.
Orange personalities have problems relaxing both physically and mentally enough to adequately get to know themselves. They have difficulties in recognizing who they are emotionally, mentally and spiritually. The primary confrontation for Orange personalities is to honestly accept the biggest challenge of them all: The adventure of self-discovery. This challenge needs more courage than all other outside physical activities combined. Unbalanced Oranges also have problems with being sensitive and caring toward their fellow human beings.
Oranges have a tendency of believing that spirituality and religion are concepts which need to be lived in the physical world. In addition they have a physical perception of God. They believe that shaping and creating the planet earth and their own reality by their own will is a God given gift. Oranges understand and live this concept and belief.
The primary goal of an Orange personality is to enjoy life, have fun and be creative. The only time they come close to experiencing God or Spirit is in a state of ecstasy or thrill. Whenever Oranges are fully in the "here and now", they will have a spiritual and enlightening glimpse of reality.
Orange personalities are not very social people. They prefer to live in their own world of adventure, thrill and excitement and to lose themselves in their own creative projects. They don't particularly care what others or society in general thinks about them. Nor do they take those thoughts very personally if they are considered to be egotistical, self-absorbed or self-centered. They have not asked for any attention or justification, they simply want to do their own thing.
Oranges don't necessarily follow the rules of society. They are actually the people who constantly try to expand and exceed societies or others personal expectations, limitations and restrictions. Their bodies and minds are designed to conquer all physical limitations and boundaries. In today's society, these particular qualities are not needed as much as they obviously were several decades ago. Therefore, it is important for Orange personalities to find adequate outlets and channels of expression for their powerful creativity.
Communication is not a high priority item for Oranges. However, they do possess the capacity to clearly explain and get across to others exactly what they want. When it comes to their ideas and projects, they do know how to communicate and do it most effectively. But if we look closely at their emotional expression, their ability to communicate their inner feelings, we find insecurity, unavailability and even a sense of loneliness.
RELATIONSHIPS AND INTIMACY
Orange personalities are loners. They don't need friends or partners in their lives. Actually, they feel more alive and happy if they are involved with or have succeeded in a large project or while they are involved in a major, physical adventure. From an emotional standpoint they have difficulty in bonding. They also have a tendency of not relating well to sensitivity, compassion and gentleness.
For the most part Oranges are normally not interested in solid, long-lasting partnerships or relationships. They are more interested in their projects and adventures than in family and marriage.
Because they are physically fit, attractive and good looking, Orange people have no difficulty in finding partners and lovers. The challenge, excitement and pleasure of meeting new people is much more thrilling than simply being together with old friends all the time.
Oranges enjoy all pleasures of the physical body. They consider sexuality as a natural body reaction. It is fun for them, a nice release from inner pressures. But in their hearts they do not care or are affected very deeply by their partner.
It is a challenge for Orange personalities to become emotionally involved and take on the responsibilities of a relationship. If they can feel enough freedom and independence they might be willing to commit to a partner for a longer period of time. But their partners will soon discover that they can't confine or hold back an Oranges urge to challenge further adventures. Orange people can be interesting, thrilling and fascinating, but they need their freedom to explore and create their own life.
Orange people interacting with other Oranges or Reds often create an intense and high energy relationship. Friction and ego problems are not unusual. Deep-Reds and Oranges seem to have similar interests and are very compatible. Orange personalities like a Yellows playfulness. Both are very creative and productive and therefore have a great deal in common.
The Orange adventurers need a lot of time for themselves. Therefore close relationships are not their first priority. They usually have problem with the Blues need for closeness and care taking. Both Orange and Indigo personalities seem to have strong inner feelings and creativity yet they live in a completely different world - almost inside out. Because Greens and Deep-Greens love to talk about everything for hours, Oranges might need some time off.
Creating sensitivity and understanding for Lavender and White personalities is a strong challenge for most Oranges. An Oranges practicality and a Violets theoretical visions seem to support each other very well. On the other hand, Violets are often too far out for an Orange person.
In reality the biggest challenge for an Orange personality is to create relationships that are ruled by sensitivity and understanding. To open their heart is a wonder not to be missed.
CAREER AND FINANCES
Orange people are independent and self-sufficient individuals. They prefer short term or individual jobs to long-time commitments or safe occupations. They don't have much of a problem with money. Because their needs are not very high and they have the power to be creative and active, they have the abilities to create their own income without too much difficulty. If they have the chance, Oranges will love to live the physical, adventurous and thrilling life and find a way of making money with it.
Oranges primarily spend their money for their unusual projects or hobbies. They don't need much in the form of luxury but they are more than willing to spend anything, and in some cases, everything they have, to make their ideas a reality.
Oranges can be strong leaders, but they actually don't care about being leaders at all. They prefer going their own way, fulfilling their own dreams of creative adventures. They can be powerful and creative leaders if they see the necessity of working with other team members. They perform best in an environment which provides them a certain degree of freedom and independence. Oranges lead by physical example and by their unbridled enthusiasm. Their "male" way of living their life creates many admirers and followers.
Orange personalities are creative problem solvers. They are able to view and recognize all factors, calculate the risks involved, go through all possibilities in their head, make sure they have all the equipment they need and then take action. They prefer physical or mental challenges and are often found in jobs which guarantee them a degree of independence. Oranges are often found in business, sales, marketing or any other occupation which allows them to experience personal freedom.
Orange personalities are qualified and strong working people. They love to express their powerful creative life energy into many avenues. Whenever a strong, fearless personality with courage, enthusiasm and determination is needed, look for an Orange person.
Typical "Orange" occupations are: Stunt men, mountain climbers, adventurers, business men, sales persons, designers, developers, architects, explorers and private investigators.
HEALTH, WELL-BEING AND GROWTH
Orange personalities need to understand that to explore the inner worlds is the greatest adventure a human being can experience. To take the journey into their inner reality, explore this unknown land and to expand their consciousness, is the biggest challenge they will ever face.
Orange persons reach harmony if they recognize that their life needs balance, a balance of body, mind and spirit. To explore the outer as well as the inner world enables them to experience life on all levels. The moment they connect in a balanced manner with their inner, creative power.
Oranges will know what to do and what not to do. Inner Knowledge and Wisdom can be achieved if the creative energies flow freely and are expressed to help and support humanity. Connecting with their own feelings and staying open and caring toward humanity are vitally important aspects for Oranges.
Orange personalities recharge their life energy batteries if they live their creative capacity in a harmonious way. They must come to understand how unimportant it is to force themselves into dangerous experiences or unhealthy situations. By using their power to create and help humanity and to experience their inner world of sensitivity, feelings and personal growth, they will find positive and harmonious ways of expressing and recharging their life energy.
The life purpose of an Orange personality is to connect with their creative potential and experience the entire physical existence. Further, it is to have the freedom to create new pathways and ideas and to expand and go over the borders and limitations of reality as it is commonly perceived..
Orange personalities need to be especially aware about their physical and emotional states. Proper, healthy and high-energy nutrition is essential for them. They should also create an environment in which they can express themselves emotionally and communicate freely with friends and family.
Sports such as surfing, mountain climbing, riding a horse or a Harley Davidson through the desert, or other outdoor activities and adventures are known to recharge an Orange personalities batteries. On the other hand, the biggest challenge for them is to find their limits where adventure and independence become destructive and a form of energy drain.
