The Lüscher color test is a discredited psychological test invented by Dr. Max Lüscher in Basel, Switzerland. Max Lüscher believed that sensory perception of color is objective and universally shared by all, but that color preferences are subjective, and that this distinction allows subjective states to be objectively measured by using test colors. Lüscher believed that because the color selections are guided in an unconscious manner, they reveal the person as they really are, not as they perceive themselves or would like to be perceived.

Lüscher believed that personality traits could be identified based on one’s choice of color. Therefore, subjects who select identical color combinations have similar personalities. In order to measure this, he conducted a test in which subjects were shown 8 different colored cards and asked to place them in order of preference. Colors are divided between “basic” (blue, yellow, red, green) and “auxiliary” (violet, brown, grey, and black).

Blue

“Depth of Feeling” passive, concentric, tranquility, calm, tenderness

Green

“Elasticity of Will” passive, concentric, defensive, persistence, self-esteem/assertion, pride, control

Red

“Force of Will” ex-centric, active aggressive, competitive, action, desire, excitement, sexuality

Yellow

“Spontaneity” ex-centric, active, projective, aspiring, expectancy, exhilaration

Violet

“Identification” unrealistic/ wishful fulfillment, charm, enchantment

Brown

Bodily senses, indicates the body’s condition

Black

Nothingness, renunciation, surrender or relinquishment

Grey

Non-involvement and concealment

After subjects placed the cards in order from most liked to least liked, they were asked to evaluate the extent to which their personalities matched the descriptive statements formed by Lüscher of each color.

The results of the Lüscher-Color-Diagnostic contain indications pertaining to personal assessment and special, professional recommendations as to how psychological stress and the resulting physical symptoms can be avoided. It also offers additional information for verbal and homeopathic therapy.
