Sharing personality quiz results used to be a thing on Facebook, and while the trend seems to have died off there, it turns out that a new generation of social media users is taking this interest over to TikTok instead.
With its eye-popping aesthetics, it comes as no surprise that the ‘Personal Color Test’ by South Korean company Withsome is taking the video-sharing platform by storm. Its interface is a nostalgic replica of painting software from the 1990s and 2000s, complete with color swatches and pixelated text.

Given Gen Z’s obsession with 90s classics, this visual delight is bound to hold attention.
More importantly, it claims to reveal the color that best matches users’ personalities with a few short questions. It will only take a few minutes to complete the quiz’s 12 questions, which touch on how people handle social situations, such as whether they’d prefer to be out in a crowded setting or stay at home during the weekend.
While quizzes like this one are seemingly a dime a dozen, HashtagHyena details that it appears to be based on Don Lowry’s ‘True Colors’ personality profiling system from 1978. According to this school of thought, everyone’s character is a blend of four hues—blue, orange, green, and gold—and their core is made up of their two most prominent colors.
When opening some of the results, which were presented as images, DesignTAXI also noted that their file names were saved as personality types from the Myers-Briggs test, suggesting that each color corresponds to an MBTI type.
If you’re keen to discover your personal color, you can take the test here. Keep in mind that the original test is in Korean, so there could be a few mistranslations in the English-language version. Nevertheless, you’ll still be able to complete the quiz just fine.
