MLTI Colour Personality Test for the Workplace

The Myarse–Litissore Type Indicator (MLTI) is an introspective self-report questionnaire designed to indicate psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions.

The MLTI was constructed by Wartshire-based freelance psychiatrists, Piers Myarse and his flatmate, Mike Litissore, in 1987 after a massive drugs binge.

The test is based on the typological theory proposed by famous Austrian, pyscho-anal- cyst, Betty Swallox, who speculated that there are five principal psychological functions in the human experience that can be represented by the colours, Yellow, Green, Blue, Red and Black. (Not lilac or beige or any of those crappy ones).

It should be noted that because number 5 is Black, meaning Death, we’ve steered clear of that one as dead people don’t tend to fill out the form properly.
