In case you haven’t noticed, everybody has gone crazy for colouring in.
But not everybody colours in the same way. In fact, just by taking a quick look at the pages of a colouring book you’ve been working on, it’s possible to tell an awful lot about you as a person.
The question is, are your pictures more A or B?
A: Neatly coloured in between the lines, entire pages complete and perfect, as if the book came already printed in colour.
B: Full of experimental shading and blending and colour choices, showing flashes of creative genius, but very few pages actually finished.
So what can people tell about you, based on whether you answered A or B? Let’s take a (fairly unsubstantiated and possibly inaccurate) guess…
Type A: Your uniform was always the regulation length, you pulled your socks up, and the ribbon in your ponytail was one of the school colours. You loved being a “monitor” of any kind. Your report card was full of comments like “a pleasure to teach”.
Type B: You were always getting into trouble over something– skirt too short, nails too long, hair too impossibly cool for school. Your report card was probably full of comments like “talks too much” and “blah blah blah”… who remembers stuff like that? You were a star in art and drama, though.
Type A: Your clothes hang neatly on separate hangers, and they’re all in good condition, because you actually read the washing instructions. You have space, because you have a ruthless clean-out every six months or so. You can always find what you want, because you have a system.
Type B: Your wardrobe is crammed because you can’t bear to throw anything out, whether it’s the embarrassingly expensive dress you’ve never worn or your favourite t-shirt, which is full of holes. Your shoes are in a jumble but they’re fabulous. You’re always getting attention for your outfits. Sometimes it’s even the good kind.
