    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    I have used bold type to indicate things that are especially incompatible with my choices. I like outdoor activities that involve being out in nature. I hate all competitive sports and think that exercise for the sake of body modification or to push yourself "to higher fitness levels" is annoying and stupid. If that's your hobby, fine, but personally, I'd rather be doing something intellectually stimulating or creative. I do like hiking through the woods and can walk for miles, even up steep hills, without getting tired because I do so frequently. It allows me to collect my thoughts and come up with new song ideas. Nature inspires me, and when I exercise, it is usually for the purpose of being somewhere beautiful where I can focus better on my creative pursuits.

    The description for the "Greens" fit me better.
    What YOU wrote sounds more like the "Silvers" description.

    Ah..

    INTJ, INFJ – White: A Blank Canvas, Trailblazers on Familiar Paths

    Since exercise can provide solitary time for reflection,
    visioning, and mental drift, it is important for INJs to
    seek peaceful and pleasing environments. Jarred by
    interruptions and chaos, orderly environments provide
    the necessary calm for physical exercise. Familiar paths
    and activities are appealing, enabling exercise to become
    a moving meditation. Advanced planning makes
    it happen.

    "Silvers" works, too. I am a nature lover, like the greens, but I don't disagree with much in the silvers description. Either is closer than the description they gave me. I'm so not a saffron! I am an INFP, and they seem to link saffron with the IN_Ps for some weird reason.

    GAH! Didn't see that bit.

    Saffrons (INTP, INFP) are strivers after clarity and seekers of truth. They’re represented by Saffron, an out-of-the-ordinary burnt orange hue that commands attention but in a warm and comfortable way, without glitz or extravagance.
    INTP... again!

    I'm a nature lover too, but I don't think that's the point, and it's not a Key part of the "green style".

    So I'll include stuff that I'd guess would be key for the extraverted sensing types: do you not just enjoy the rush of some excercise activity, and do you frequently compete with yourself and push your comfort zone to improve, say, skill in a sport?

    Not the best example... I can see where the author's going, but the green description should have more stuff that's germane to an extraverted sensing preference.

    there's actually an ISTP example under the research part of the page. Read that, then tell me if you're still a green

    I keep getting Blue Harmony, but I find White Harmony fits me as well if not more. Since I'm an INFJ, this should fit me.

    Maybe its because INFJs are the hardest to type?

    Green Efficients (ISTP)
    * Greens Efficients are practical and analytical. They will make use of a personal trainer who challenges them, holds them accountable, and doesn’t talk too much.

    Self reported alignment value: 9 (so can rely on the test's accuracy for me)

    I like the one description in a previous post where it mentioned taiko drumming. That is a physical activity and one I've thought would be something I'd like to do.

    Fitness Color: Quick Silver, Masters of Exercise Disguise
    Motivation, Approach, and Focus

    Energized by new ideas and possibilities, Silvers eagerly embrace novel concepts and respond to a world of opportunity. Silvers find little that doesn’t interest them. They’re quick to see connections and build on ideas. Silvers enjoy being with people who share their enthusiasm and can contribute to their projects and activities. With so many interests, exercise for its own sake can be boring. It’s best when taken out of the context of pure exercise and wrapped in the guise of something else, such as a challenge, adventure, and exploration, or spending time with people.


    Active Silvers fall into one of two categories: Make it Central or Keep it Simple. When physical activity takes on a central role, there are likely several layers of experience and achievement to disguise pure exercise. For example, training for a marathon with a group, skiing or biking with friends, walking meetings with colleagues, or competitive ballroom dancing. In each case there are multiple enticements and hooks; they will get their exercise along the way. With their Intuitive natures, Silvers can naturally make the mind/body/soul connection and might be attracted to exercise with that as a component.


    For Make it Central Silvers with active friends and family, physical activity can become an operating principle in their lives. With so much of life organized around physical activity, positive momentum overpowers physical resistance. They approach their physically active lifestyle with enthusiasm and gusto, and rarely miss a day of exercise, even when it’s piled on top of an already full schedule


    For Silvers who do not make exercise central in their lives, they find exercise success by keeping activities uncomplicated, unremarkable, and easy to accomplish. The Keep it Simple Silvers might even become rigid in their program, in contrast to the flexible approach they apply to the rest of their lives, convinced that if they deviate from their routine—or try to improve on it and change it—it might fall apart. For Silvers whose interests often pull them in so many directions, many report that regular exercise makes them feel more balanced and in control of their lives.

    Environment and Interpersonal Connections

    Convenience is a must. The more decision points Silvers must navigate, the less appealing exercise becomes. Whether they belong to a fitness center, practice yoga, Tai Chi, or run in the park, Silvers don’t want to spend too much time in transition. Their schedules are tight and time is valuable. Convenience, after all, relates to flow—moving from one activity to another with little effort—much the way Silvers connect ideas.


    A stimulating environment, connecting with people around training programs—possibly taking the lead in setting up a training schedule keeps interest high. With their busy lives, many Silvers also enjoy exercising alone, finding satisfaction and balance in reflection. A walk at night, a run along the bike path, or solo time at the gym provides an opportunity to be with their thoughts and clear their busy minds.






    So far what ive read is accurate Ill have to think on it and read it over to be sure. Interesting to say the least.
