I have no clear idea of exactly why the Luscher color test works, I simply know that, in my own case, it proved incredibly accurate. It is amazing that a simple selection sequence of eight colored cards could reveal so much about internal anxieties, compensations, and conflicts. Yet, there definately is a correlation with these inner states and color preference.

This is probably the easiest of the deep psychological tests to administer and interpret. It is not a game and is not to be used carelessly or improperly. In fact, I first heard about it in graduate school when I overheard one of the psychology professors go ballistic when he found that the undergraduates were administering the test to each other. He wasn't upset because he thought it was nonsense, on the contrary, he was upset because he knew it to be a deep and powerful tool with the potential to do great damage if misused.

One further warning, if you buy an older edition of this book make sure that: #1 the eight cards are included, and #2 that they are not too badly faded.

Oh yes, the text states that this test is still accurate even if you are color blind!

A wonderful study that the Germans conducted on colors and our personality traits resulting from our choices. I used to entertain people at work with this test. Very thorough descriptions of color choices and what they mean to us

Back in the 80's(my favorite time) I was going to this convention on survival preparedness and being the kid I was I was drawn to this what I thought was a video game, after plunking in my 50 cents and started the system up I found out that this was some type of test so I preceded on and after I picked my colors two different times it gave me a pretty detailed version of who I was. To say the least I was very impressed and I started to research this thing called the color test, back then it was hard to find information on it but I finally came across the Luscher color test and bought the book many years ago. I practiced it many times but after moving a few times and losing track of my stuff I had lost the book, funny thing is I never gave it much thought until recently and once again could not remember the name of the book but after a little search on the Net, I once again found it on Amazon and bought it. I highly recommend this book, it is a fun way to get to know yourself on a deeper level, but if you want the real color test given my Luscher himself you will pay over a $100 dollars for the test but it is more detailed and more rewarding. Happy reading.

Yes, I have used this many years ago, but someone must have "borrowed" it so I purchased another. Actually the color chips were not in the back of the book, but there is a replication in the book itself, and I could make a good color copy and create my own chips. This is actually a serious assessment device and hard to fake, because the subject doesn't really realize the implications of the choices. But folks have to do as directed and just respond to the color, not think of the dress they like, or their new car, or choosing a color they think will impress the examiner. Actually this is a very abbreviated version of the original test, of course.

Came with everything as expected. The book itself looked a little worn down on the outside but no worries you can still read the words and the cards were in good shape too. P.s: I tried this with a couple of friends to see if the test was accurate and to my surprise it was! My friends were amazed as well when I showed them their individual results. I would advice not to use this as a game, please take it a little more seriously because some of the interpretations are a little too personal.

I first came across this book 20 years ago & had fun with my friends, putting them to the 'test'.
It is an interesting look at how we subconsciously choose colours for particular reasons. The explanations in this book can reveal some surprising, underlying motives, etc.

I read this book in 1971. The book I received looked just like what mine would have looked like hadn't I lost it.
It is yellow, the pages are brittle, but it is complete and -most important of all- the colourcards are there.
I'm gonna have some more fun again with this book.
