Episode 8: Seasons and Personality


In today’s show…

We answer a single reader question about one of our favourite topics, the personalities associated with the Seasons. The question is:

Do you ever colour analyze people whose Season does not match the character stereotype for their Season?

We  then ask ourselves,  do character stereotypes for the Seasons have any value? 

The image for this episode is inspired by the famous quote by Forrest Gump’s mother about life being “like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get”. Regarding personalities, we’d like to say that “Personalities are as different as cakes. All are delicious, even though some of us might be tough cookies”
