The trend has seen many social media users log into their accounts to find out ‘what is my colour?’ thanks to ktestone’s quiz.

Here’s what you need to know.

What is the colour personality test?

The colour personality quiz is the latest online trend to go viral on social media platform TikTok.

It collates your answers to a series of set questions and gives you a colour which the website thinks best represents you.

As well as giving your personality a colour, it also gives you colours which fit well with yours and others to keep your distance from.

How does the colour personality test work?

The colour personality test presents each visitor with 12 set questions and two answers to each.

You have to select the answer which you think best matches your behaviours to proceed to the next question as the website builds a picture of your personality.

The test begins by asking ‘How do you behave in front of your friends?’, with the options of ‘Most of the time, other friends talk to me first’ or ‘I talk to them first’.

Other examples of questions include ‘What do you enjoy doing on the weekend?’, ‘How do you tell people no?’, and ‘You’re on vacation, how do you start the day?’.

How do I take the colour personality test?

It’s easy to take part, quick to do and provides instant results so you can share your personality colour with friends, family and other TikTok users.

Start by clicking on to ktestone’s online test and scrolling down to find a language you best understand from the list of quizzes.

Click on to ‘Go to Test’ and begin to take the colour personality test, making your way through the series of questions one-by-one.

At the end you will get your personalised colour which best represents your personality, as well as a description of what you’re like.

It characterises your personality - what you like to do and what you don’t like to do - and the types of people you are more likely to be friends with.

The colour ocean bay, for example, is ‘a perfectionist who has a lot of miscellaneous thoughts and is lazy but passionate’.

What next for colour personality test users?

Once you’ve completed your test, many are sharing their colours on TikTok and other social media platforms.

Some have followed their creative instincts by preparing a neatly packaged video demonstrating all the things in the world which are of the same colour as their personality.

Others see the colour test as a good way to assess if they are compatible with their other half, or a chance to meet new people with similar interests.

Whatever your personality colour, it seems to be a good talking point for many looking for some light relief during the Covid pandemic.

Have fun!
