Yellow-Browns are logical, analytical, detail oriented and creative personalities. They are sequential thinkers and carefully process every step they take. They have a basic need to understand and analyze each individual step before continuing on to the next level. Yellow-Browns strongest qualities are their clear intellectual and analytical properties. They like to create a solid foundation which gives them security and then build stone by stone until they eventually achieve their goals. Virtually everything they do contains logic and methodology. They are constantly planning, trying to figure out how to reach the requirements of their goal.
A Yellow-Browns motivation in life is their need to know and to analytically and intellectually understand life and interact with other people. Their guiding sentence could be, "Life is like a computer. You get out of it what you program into it".
Yellow-Browns mainly process life through their minds. They don't use their body and emotions nearly as much as most other color personalities. They perceive nature or physical reality first through their analytical mind and then move toward action. Physical activities are not important to them. They have a tendency of only moving their body if they find a good reason and are convinced about the benefits involved.
If Yellow-Brown personalities are in harmony, they radiate stability, security and responsibility towards their fellow beings. They are the most dependable people in the world who fulfill all tasks to the smallest detail with extreme efficiency. Through their rational and practical abilities they can realize visionary ideas of other personality types and bring them into reality. Yellow-Browns have a soothing and stabilizing effect on people and they are trustworthy and reliable. They also express strong security and groundedness and are considered to be realistic people.
Yellow-Browns are known to examine the details of everything, they do. When they work on a project they need to see and understand all of its components before they feel safe and secure enough for their participation. Sometimes Yellow-Browns may not be able to see the whole picture because they are too intensely involved with the details. But for them that doesn't matter. Their unbelievable patience and tolerance allows them to spend many hours on the same idea or project.
Yellow-Browns love to play and tinker with electronic gadgets, cars, motorcycles, etc. If they become involved with a project or hobby they go into every detail and in most cases become experts in their field. Through patience, obstinacy and their love for detail, Yellow-Browns have developed appliances such as computers, radios and other technical appliances.
In both expression and communication, Yellow-Browns are slow and deliberate. They will divide and describe every situation in its smallest detail. They speak preferentially about their thoughts, ideas and projects. Yellow-Browns are also careful in expressing their deepest feelings and emotions. They will only open up and share their innermost feelings with others after they are convinced no one will hurt them or use information against them.
Yellow-Browns love to study and to learn. They make perfect students because they are willing to spend the time, effort and energy to understand the smallest of details. Sometimes this positive ability creates problems because only seeing reality as orderly, structured and rigid, doesn't give them the necessary openness to expand themselves and explore unknown territories.
Yellow-Brown personalities have specific ideas and concepts about life. They don't like things which strike them as unusual, extra-ordinary, abnormal or irregular. These security conscious people can easily become accustomed to old and repeated family or life patterns. Their normal day would proceed with definite patterns, situations and regularity. As an example, at 10 PM every evening they watch the news, their office desk always looks exactly the same, organized, every item at its place, the same dinner every Tuesday night.
It is often difficult for them to go new ways, to accept new ideas or patterns or to encounter the unexpected. However, this lifestyle, connected to security, solidity and comfort is attractive to many people. Yellow-Browns qualities and characteristics are appreciated and sought after by many people in the business world and society.
Out-of-power Yellow-Browns can be stubborn, stuck, narrow-minded and extremely skeptical about all things. They can be overly analytical with a need to understand everything and to mentally be in control. Whatever they can't prove or don't know represents insecurity, instability and therefore danger. Their skepticism does not allow different opinions or points of view. Even when proof stares them in the face they can be overly stubborn, skeptical and totally unwilling to change or alter their positions or beliefs.
Yellow-Browns who are unbalanced mainly think about or talk about their feelings. However, they hardly ever feel them in the real sense. As an example, even trained experts such as psychologists or therapists understand emotional concepts mentally, but have difficulty in experiencing living out their own emotions and feelings. Yellow-Browns withdraw emotionally in stress situations and then try to analyze and discuss the situation within themselves until they come up with solutions.
A Yellow-Browns primary difficulty is making contact with their own emotions and feelings. Their personality will not allow them to feel something which cannot be analyzed and figured out completely. How do you define or understand feelings and emotions like love, anger or sadness? Yellow-Browns are afraid of their own emotions and feelings because they justify that the universe cannot be reduced to mind, logic and intellect. This extremely deep rooted fear and insecurity goes so far that they solve most of their problems with known, safe and tried patterns. They will repeat and feel safe with known and established solutions because their parents, friends or superiors have always done things the same way.
Because they don't really know how to handle their emotions, Yellow-Brown personalities often suppress them and tell themselves these emotions do not exist. They create ways to eliminate emotion in their lives. If they can't accept and therefore express their feelings, they tend to become even more uninvolved, withdrawn and cold toward others. Many Yellow-Browns turn their rage, anger or sadness inside, leaving them painfully in a depressed, hopeless, discouraged state of mind.
In general, Yellow-Brown personalities experience difficulty in relaxing or calming themselves. For them, letting go, no-mind and no thought is comparable to insecurity and even death. They perceive themselves as mind and thought and the moment the mind ceases to function they fear they don't exist anymore.
To remove themselves from this wicked circle, Yellow-Browns need to understand that emotions and feelings are an important parts of a human system. Without emotions, feelings, intuitions, beliefs and spiritual ideas, humans would be only matter or similar to a computer. Adapting a mental concept that integrates openness to emotions and intuition is the first step for Yellow-Browns to grow and expand their possibilities.
Their sense of spirituality is to grasp and understand the higher laws and concepts of life. They have the capacity to comprehend spiritual knowledge and wisdom as a result of their skilled, analytical mind and preciseness. For Yellow-Browns, the universe works within certain laws and orders, all of which can be logically explained and understood. They will only accept magical, mystical ideas, or psychic and spiritual phenomena after they have been carefully examined and they are convinced it is real. For these reality conscious people, beliefs are based upon hands-on proof and the concept of, "seeing is believing."
Yellow-Browns prefer religious practices which offer specific laws, rules and regulations that offer heavenly security and safety. For them, spirituality is related to high ethical values, justice, principles, perfection and fairness. God remains a mental concept, the ultimate thought. They can understand what God or Spirituality actually is but rarely feel it. One of the major challenges for Yellow-Browns is to allow their emotions to be felt and intuitions to be integrated into their mental concepts of life.
In today's society Yellow-Brown personalities are highly respected and appreciated. They are reliable, trustworthy, always on time and share a common understanding with society and most people. Their behavior and beliefs are within the range of normality and generally have a conservative approach. Yellow-Browns are social because they enjoy being together with friends or interesting people. Often, they need to see a particular reason behind various social activities or get-togethers. These activities would include such things as business, sports or religion.
Yellow-Browns are often found in social groups, business groups or meetings. It is here where they can find friends and partners to both discuss and mentalize their work and/or ideas. Another sought out advantage of these groups is they are seldom focused on an intimate, emotional or personal level. Whenever Yellow-Browns feel the need to confront themselves with an inner, personal situation, they will prefer to withdraw in silence or in some cases even physically leave the meeting.
Yellow-Brown personalities are social in the sense that they love to share and support communities and other social groups. They see the need to give something back because they feel a sense of security and peace within the confines and structure of society. Yellow-Brown people are often found as managers, officers or accountants of various social organizations.
RELATIONSHIPS AND INTIMACY
Yellow-Browns fully commit to their partners and take complete responsibility for their own, every day life. They mate primarily for the purpose of creating a safe and secure home where they can take care of their family and in turn their partner takes care of them. They view love as a need to help and support, not as an emotional or passionate act.
Many people find themselves pulled toward Yellow-Brown personalities. Their stability and reliability are good pre-condition for long-lasting, cohesive, secure relationships. However, if you are looking for passion, romance and excitement, you should definitely make the effort to find a different partner. Yellow-Browns, for the most part, find "romance" to be much too practical and rational.
Contrary to the sense of involvement and personal responsibility they assume, it is fairly difficult for Yellow-Browns to become emotionally or spiritually involved. They prefer quiet moments in which they can read, learn, think or focus on their own ideas or projects. Out-of-power Yellow-Browns often feel unappreciated, especially during conversations when they feel they are not getting the attention they deserve. As a result they have learned to internalize their ideas or only share them with people who are on their own level of understanding.
Any person searching for intellectual conversations, quiet and rational thoughts, relationships based on partnership, stability and financial security, will find great comfort in being with a Yellow-Brown personality.
Yellow-Browns usually like to be around Deep-Red and Deep-Green people. They have a lot in common and share a conservative and intellectual approach towards life. Yellow-Browns surely understand and relate easily with their own personality type. However, they also need to be careful to develop other color qualities in their life.
Yellow-Brown people are often attracted to a Yellows happiness and lightness and the adventurous and powerful expression of Red and Orange personalities. Blues and Indigos seem to be too emotional to match with Yellow-Browns. But, because they are like energetic counterparts they can learn tremendously from each other. As long as Yellow-Browns stay open for new and innovative ideas they are a good match with Violet personalities.
Yellow-Browns need to understand and accept the spiritual way of life which Lavender and White personalities prefer. Often they are too far out and therefore have difficulty in creating harmonious relationships with them.
CAREER AND FINANCES
Yellow-Browns prefer safe and secure jobs. They do not want to worry about their monthly or weekly income. If they don't have this sense of security they will feel uncomfortable and uneasy. It is quite common for them to pursue occupations or positions with large, established companies or organizations who can provide this security and regular income.
Yellow-Browns will be the right choice in any situation in which preciseness, detailed and analytical thinking is required. They can be extremely successful if they use their full capacity. Their openness and willingness to discuss and analyze work situations and problems allows them to work well with other people. They lead by their competence, their ability to listen and unify, and uniqueness in being able to find the best solution for virtually any problem.
Yellow-Browns solve problems through logical and analytical procedures. If detailed, orderly and precise solutions are needed, they are extremely good problem solvers. However, they are not very effective when it comes to developing innovations or new ideas, making broad plans, or creating strategies which incorporate complex or intuitive ideas or concepts. If they keep an open mind when looking into creative, new possibilities, they will be able to solve all problems in an efficient, practical and detailed manner.
Typical "Yellow-Brown" occupations are: Architects, bookkeepers, computer experts, software programmers, bankers, technicians, researchers, scientists, doctors, office clerks, library employees, officials, electricians and engineers.
HEALTH, WELL-BEING AND GROWTH
One of the first steps for Yellow Brown personalities to achieve balance in their life is to open up emotionally, to start feeling both their own and other peoples emotions. It takes, and calls for, a great deal of courage to go deep within oneself and allow these emotions to emerge. This emotional openness and sensitivity will allow them to use not only their mind, but in addition, the deep-seeded power of emotions. After Yellow-Browns understand the primary need of getting in contact with their emotions and feelings, they will begin to see that intuition is an important aspect of life. Intuition means living with an open mind and looking at new, innovative ideas without skepticism. It also calls for having the willingness to explore their potentials.
To gain harmony Yellow-Browns must recognize that their skepticism originates from the basis of insecurity and fear of change. They must learn to advance into new areas and be open for changes without always having data, statistics and facts available. They must also remain flexible and be willing to take risks.
Nearly all inventions and innovations have been created and developed by people with open minds and intuitive abilities. Yellow-Browns can be extremely successful and play an important part in society as long as they stay emotionally and mentally open.
Yellow-Browns will go beyond their fear of insecurity and non-existence if they understand that their mind is only a part of them. They need to clearly comprehend that their mind is not in control. Rather, they are in control of their own mind. With this understanding they will begin to relax their mental processes enough to more deeply explore their own personal identity.
The first step for Yellow-Browns to grow and expand their power is to make slow yet profound changes in their life. They need to understand that the only constant in the universe is change. To make physical, emotional or mental changes doesn't mean being out-of-control. It simply indicates the necessity of accepting real responsibility. When Yellow-Brown personalities let go of their fear and connect with their inner guidance, intuition and their inner feelings, they will expand their life energy and become the powerful, spiritual beings they really are.
Yellow-Browns need to be aware of their life energy. They have to understand that as human beings we have several internal systems which are equally important. These systems include but are not limited to: physical, electrical-energetic, emotional, mental-analytical, intuitive-feeling, and spiritual.
Yellow-Browns often hold back most of their real inner power as a result of fear and out of insecurity. It is always easier to play it safe then it is to take chances. They recharge their batteries best if they stay mentally and emotionally open. Expressing their feelings and emotions clearly and freely will release tremendous powers from within.
Artistic and creative activities such as painting or singing are wonderful techniques to open up their emotional and spiritual energies. Meditations that calm and focus the mind can help them to go beyond thinking towards a universe of unlimited possibilities.
