Red personalities find great pleasure in expressing themselves through their sexuality and their physical body. They live their life in the Here and Now with strength, courage and confidence. Reality is tangible for them because they see, hear, feel and smell it. These personalities have a remarkably strong will power and they enjoy all physical aspects of life. Reds are powerful, energetic and are often found in cooperative enterprises or leadership positions.
Reds perceive life through physical reality and through action. Their primary motivation is to feel alive and strong. They are constantly looking for excitement and judge their own environment and success by how powerful and competitive they are. Reds strive to be successful and are born winners. They are passionate about life. They represent the fire element: physical love, passion, heat and desire. The more excitement they experience the more alive they will feel.
Reds are practical, action-oriented, love to achieve results and be successful. They have an insatiable urge to win and create something valuable and important in their life. Their strong will power and intense, almost unlimited physical energy, allows them to be extremely active, persistent and successful in virtually anything they do. Other people might sometimes experience a Reds power as overwhelming, their excitement, physical and emotional pressure as just, "too much".
Reds love to live in an exciting and stimulating atmosphere at work or in their private lives, which other people might consider to be filled with stress or tension. They have a tendency of pushing and forcing themselves to the maximum. They need to prove, mostly to themselves, that they can do anything and everything they want.
Reds are truly social people. They enjoy just hanging out with their friends and buddies. A typical idea of having a good time might include dancing all night, celebrating virtually anything with friends or spending a passionate night with their lover.
While Reds may be open and communicative, they are not very effective when it comes to talking about their deep inner feelings. They have not learned to talk about or share their deepest secrets. Being sensitive and clear is an essential step towards a free expression of their inner self. Reds experience the many emotions and feelings in their physical body. They are very sensual beings.
In harmony Reds are energetic, optimistic, honest and loyal. They outwardly radiate strength and persistence and have an intensive desire to live life to its fullest extent. A Red's purpose in life is to completely experience the physical world with joy, courage and energy. Reds can show humanity the power and strength of a human being.
Reds need a high degree of independence and physical freedom. They love to explore all facets of physical reality. They also enjoy the power and the thrill of exploration and adventure. Reds can be completely unique and individual. They generate so much passion and unconventional ways of expressing themselves that they sometimes have difficulty fitting into societies stereotyped picture of a normal citizen. However, Red personalities are used to this uniqueness and in fact, thrive on it. Strangely enough, they have a tendency of being loners who just happen to have lots of friends.
Reds are curious, insistent and intrusive. They are passionately interested in all aspects of life. If you desire a life filled with excitements and action, join forces with a Red personality. They have difficulty with exercising patience or waiting for projects to develop. They want everything immediately and are not afraid to insist that their ideas and goals are most important right now. Reds not only know how to get attention but also how to get what they want. Their powerful, physical-emotional energies, combined with driving, strong will-power, gives them the right tools and instruments to be successful in our competitive, materialistic world.
Reds can become impatient and frustrated easily if things do not go their way. They feel more comfortable in taking physical action on a given situation rather than exploring vague, mental concepts. Learning by actually doing is a concept they are much more familiar with. It is easier for Reds to learn how to dance, to dismantle a car or to sell life insurance, if they can physically do it themselves. Classroom learning is not tangible for them. Structured instruction and most book learning situations require mental concepts that are not real or physically touchable.
Because powerful, physical and emotional energies are constantly running through a Reds body, it is difficult for them to sit still and be passive. The only way to achieve balance and harmony is to move the physical body and find ways of balancing this power inside. If Reds find positive outlets for their physical-emotional energy, they will become very powerful and will be able to manifest their dreams. Sports which require physical stamina and strength are wonderful outlets for a Reds powerful, impulsive energies.
If Red personalities are out of harmony they might feel emotionally or physically exhausted. They can become frustrated, depressed or physical-emotional explosive. Out of power, their strong emotional and physical energies are often released through a physical fight, an intense sexual encounter or emotional burn out and exhaustion. It is difficult to be around an out-of-power Red because they can be demanding, intense, explosive and have a constant need to be the center of attention.
Unbalanced Reds can exhibit an intense, pushy and controlling personality. However, they may not be aware of it because their constant, fast action and their need to win and achieve, has a tendency of clouding their perceptions. They are unaware that others might not want to go along with that particular speed and power. Out of power Reds, without giving any thought to it, easily go over both their own and other peoples feelings, borders and limits.
Reds will listen to spiritual or mystical subjects but they are much too grounded in their own realism to understand or accept these thoughts. On the other hand, Reds might occasionally see the excitement and power of spirituality when based in religion and decide to find out what this is really all about.
Because of their passionate energy, their will power and their urge to be in the front seat, Reds can become powerful leaders. A Reds spirituality is tangible. They might perceive God as a powerful human being who is in control and knows how to guide human life. On the other hand, Reds are too eccentric and unorthodox to be caught in organized religion.
Reds are social personalities. They love people and love to be around people. Socializing and just hanging out with their friends, buddies, lovers or partners is a favorite activity of Reds. They will easily find friends and people to talk to wherever they go. They have a tendency of radiating an aura of attraction and excitement around themselves. At parties Reds are usually the center of attention. They enjoy being surrounded by beautiful men or women. Their vibrant, energetic and stimulate personality, combined with power and vitality, makes them fun to be with. Reds love to interact with their environment and are interested in hearing other peoples opinions and thoughts.
Reds can be eccentric and unique. Because of their strong physical and emotional creativeness, they often have difficulty in conforming with the norms of society. Their unusual behavior, as an example, the way they sometimes dress, can occasionally be shocking to a society based in conservatism.
Reds are sensitive and easily hurt. But they don't ever want to show their sensitivity. They are also very emotional. They need to express their feelings and emotions to experience peace and harmony inside themselves. Similar to Greens, Red personalities express their emotions and feelings very naturally. Like sensual animals, they have to get rid of this impulsive, intense powerful energy. And, they have to express these feelings through their physical bodies.
Communication is not a Reds favorite activity though they are powerful communicators. They prefer social or business meetings to sophisticated, intellectual conversations. Even if Reds do like parties or large get-togethers, they are careful with whom they get involved. They usually only open up to their long-time friends or people they know they can trust. Reds like people who understand their desires and goals.
RELATIONSHIPS AND INTIMACY
Reds are sexual beings and have a strong appetite for life. They love to be physically and emotionally stimulated and equally love to stimulate others. If you ask a Red person, they will commit to thinking about sex a great deal of the time. They are driven by their desires. They also love to confront and shock their fellow people just to see their reactions and emotional response. Sex means life to Reds. It is the essential force in their universe. Reds have difficulties in going without sex for a long time. They need this exciting and alive feeling of sexual interaction.
Sex for these realists is a desire-filled, sensual and lusty experience. Life in a physical body is to be fully enjoyed in every aspect. They love to openly express their desires, their sensuality and their passion. However, sex doesn't always involve love and compassion, but is a physical pleasure to be enjoyed and experienced.
It is a major challenge for a Red personality to live in a sensitive, long-lasting, emotional and open relationship. They often focus on short-term, exciting relationships and encounters. Reds have a lot of friends, but only a few are close and intimate. Because of their sexual power, Reds are often good candidates for affairs. They prefer the romantic feeling of the initial attraction and the excitement of meeting a new partner. They love to play with fire. Because of their sexual drive, Reds are not very monogamous. They just can't help it. Their sexual power attracts too many good looking women or men. A Red will feel a sexual orgasm as the highest of experiences. For them it is almost the same as spiritual enlightenment.
Reds love to go out with their friends, dance all night long and hang out in bars or clubs. They do not make perfect husbands or wives. If they have the courage to engage themselves in a close relationship they need physical freedom from their partners. If passion, sex and excitement are present in their relationship, Reds make very honest and loyal partners.
Reds are often attracted to Color Personalities in their own color range (Deep-Red, Red, Orange). Reds like the excitement and stimulation of love. This physical and sexual excitement will create many attractions, but on the other hand will also create many conflicts. Intimacy and deeper understanding are often difficult to achieve.
Reds interacting with Reds is often like an explosion or burning fires competing with each other. However, they seem to be very good mirrors for each other. Yellows add to a Reds sexual and physical power by being playful and fun.
The Orange adventurer and the Red winner both need a lot of time for themselves. Therefore, close relationships need a lot of space and understanding for each other. To achieve productive relationships Reds need to understand the Blues, Indigos, Lavenders and Whites sensitivity and need for inner peace for successful interactions.
Reds seem to be attracted to Green and Deep-Green personalities because of their mental quickness, elegance and inner power. Because of their visionary and innovative traits, Violets match well with Reds though a lot of sensitivity is needed. A Violets passion and vision and a Reds physical approach can create miracles on earth.
In general, Red personalities need to understand that other people are not as powerful and ambitious as they are. Sensitivity and awareness toward other peoples feelings will help to create long-lasting, fulfilling relationships.
CAREER AND FINANCE
It is virtually impossible to stop a Red if they have decided to go for and achieve a goal. They are powerful in achieving and finishing projects. They lead others through their powerful physical willingness to act and work and through the sheer essence of their will power. For a Red, "No" is not an acceptable answer. "No", simply means you haven't tried hard enough. Reds do not lead with strategy or vision, but with courage and power.
Reds can best solve their problems if they stay active and act powerful with positive expectations and ideas. They do not like sitting around discussing theories. Reds come up with creative, sometimes unusual ideas, but they also want to be physically involved in solving the problems at hand. Having both a positive outlook and positive expectations is very important for them.
Reds are not very patient when it comes to finding solutions or solving problems. If things don't go their way they might become impatient, angry or frustrated with themselves or close friends. Reds need to have things "their" way, which often creates friction's in a team environment. However, if they stay emotionally and mentally open, they can be very creative and powerful problem solvers. Reds are especially good in finishing projects. Wherever stamina, courage and strength are required, Reds are welcome helpers.
Once they have firmly decided on a direction, Reds need to learn to accept other options and solutions. Being stubborn and inflexible isn't always positive or helpful to them in achieve a goal. The more flexible and discriminative they can be, the better they will understand where to change directions and push various projects to successful conclusions.
Money is an important issue to Reds mainly because it represents power in our society. They know how to work and make a good income. Reds often own their own businesses or are found in leadership positions. Their motivation is the money they make and the action and the excitement they experience.
Reds are independent personalities. They do not like to be told what to do, when to do it or what to believe in. They often choose occupations which allow them to be their own boss and express their own ideas as an individual. They want to control and be the master of their own life. Reds enjoy working for themselves, being alone and focusing on their work. They do best if they have a clear picture of what to achieve and are then given the freedom to find the best and most efficient way for themselves.
Red personalities prefer physical work which allows them the opportunity to achieve their own goals and win. They have a deep seeded desire to be the best and will do "whatever it takes" to accomplish their goals. They have a need to be in control of their work and their life. Competition and the excitement of interesting jobs are good motivational factors for Reds. Because of their will to achieve and to finish projects, Reds can be vitally important in any work environment.
Typical "Red" occupations would include: Entrepreneur, sports professional, sales person, marketing executive, manager, surgeon, leader, athlete, dancer, model.
HEALTH, WELL-BEING AND GROWTH
Reds have tremendous physical and emotional energies. If they learn how to find positive outlets for their powerful force and if also learn how to channel their life energy into creative projects and positive actions, they will be very successful and happy individuals.
To remain in harmony Red personalities must live and express their full potential. They must find positive avenues to express their powerful, explosive and intensive energy, such as sports, exercise, work or creativity. They must also learn to live their power in a creative way and release their intense physical and emotional energies without hurting themselves or others.
If Reds can learn to be sensitive enough to feel their own and others peoples feelings they will experience much more love and acceptance in their lives. Reds cannot be told to relax, be passive or to just not do anything. They have too much power and energy A good way to let go and relax is to "hang loose", while involved in an activity. I would call this, "centered awareness in action", or "relaxed activity".
Physical activities and sports are wonderful ways to express their powerful energies. Jogging, swimming and dancing will help them to relax. Reds often experience this relaxation much like it was a psychedelic or a high experience.
Reds also need to understand that winning isn't everything in life. They will often feel a certain emptiness after they have achieved their goals. "What is next?," they might ask themselves. Finding the "right" goal is an important issue for Red personalities.
Reds recharge their life energy batteries by finding creative ways of expressing physical activities. They can effectively learn to not suppress their feelings but to stay sensitive and open and express them creatively. Enough physical and emotional energy is available for Reds. Unlike other color personalities, Reds don't need to recharge themselves in a normal sense. Reds represent fire. Living filled with passion and developing a positive outlook with positive expectations will guide Reds toward a fulfilling and energetic life.
