# High School Color Fun

Let’s time travel back to high school for a moment, shall we? I had this book (well, I guess, I technically still have it, haha) called “The Dewey Color System” by Dewey Sadka. It’s a personality test book that tells you about yourself based on the combination of your favorite primary color and favorite secondary color (with more info based on how you feel about other colors like black, white, gold, teal, etc.).

I was obsessed with this book and made everyone I know take the test (which is just, again, picking your favorite primary color and your favorite secondary color).

Here is said book:

As you can see by how beat up it is, I used it a lot. I actually did a “stats” project in my 11th grade psych class where I looked at the frequencies of people’s personality types with the Dewey Color System and compared them to the frequencies of their Myers-Briggs personality types. Of course, I knew ZERO about stats at the time so I was just comparing the frequencies without any sort of test of statistical significance, but I did go back to the data a few years ago and tried to chi-square the hell out of it for funzies.

[Edit: I can’t find that blog for whatever reason, but it’s out there.]

Anyway. I think the test and results used to be online for free, but now it looks like you have to pay. SAD! That was the whole point of this blog, haha.

Edit again: alrighty, found the blog in question. Looks like I didn’t do anything that looked at Dewey vs. Myers-Briggs…just Myers-Briggs-related stuff. I wonder if I can find my data anywhere?

Edit again again: No data on both tests, but I did (of course) write down some of the results of the Dewey test in the front cover of the book. All those letter combinations at the top are the combos of favorite primary (Blue, Red, Yellow) and secondary (Green, Orange, Purple). The letters at the bottom are representing the six “intermediate” colors for which people were supposed to choose two as their favorites and two as their least favorites (Gold, Indigo, Lime, Magenta, Red-orange, Teal).

Also, my grades in high school were abysmal.

Algebra: my worst enemy in high school. Also, how the hell does one get a C in Wellness?

Woah, dudes. Woah, woah, woah.

Awesome Breakbot song combined with ridiculously trippy music video? Life is good.

That is all.

# I’ve been waiting years for this

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the statistically perfect pack of M&Ms!

How is it statistically perfect, you ask? Well, if you take a look at Mars’ website, you can find the percentage of all M&Ms that each color represents. 30% of all M&Ms are brown, red and yellow both make up 20%, and orange, green and blue each make up 10%. Therefore, in a bag of 23 M&Ms, we would have seven brown, five red, five yellow, two orange, two green, and two blue. For a perfect example of this, see above photo.

My day has just been made.

(And yes, I know this boosts my dork level to even higher levels; I don’t care!)
