Meh.
Color Quiz - Results
Thank you for taking the Color Quiz! These results are provided as a fun way to examine your personality but even though the results are very accurate you should not consider them a diagnosis. See a doctor or psychologist for that!
Your Existing Situation
"Hoping to climb the corporate ladder and gain a position with more power and higher pay so that he can live a more lavish lifestyle, and obtain the things he has had to go without."

Your Stress Sources
"Wants the freedom to follow his own heart, goals, and dreams and to earn the respect as a unique individual. Desires to pursue every possible opportunity without limitations or things standing in his way."

Your Restrained Characteristics
"Feels he is carry more than his share of problems. He is flexible and laid back, sticking to his goals and working to overcome any difficulty."

He is being forced to be happiness and pleasure on hold for new due to his limiting circumstances.

His arrogance causes him to take offense quickly. Only those closest to him know deep down he is sensitive and sentimental.

Current events have him feeling forced to make bargains and put aside his own desires for now. He is able to find satisfaction and happiness through sexual activity.

Your Desired Objective
"Avoids conflict and disagreements. Prefers a peaceful, calm, and relaxing environment."

Your Actual Problem
Must protect himself from outside influences or he risks losing his independence and having restrictions placed on him. He wishes to be left alone.

Your Actual Problem #2
His desire to be respected and to stand out from the crowd is not being satisfied and therefore he is feeling anxious. His normal friendly self is being held back and he refuses to become involved or participate with others in normal day to day activities.

Meh.
I sure wouldn't guess that much of that applies to you.
Criticisms

The test is being considered by scientific community as discredited. It lacks construct validity and is considered as example of the Barnum effect, where an ostensible personality analysis (actually consisting of vague generalities applicable to the majority of people) is reported to be accurate by subjects who had completed a personality test before reviewing their 'results'. A 1984 comparison of the Lüscher color test and the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) found little agreement between the two tests, prompting the authors to urge cautious use of the former. Some still stand up for the Lüscher color test as providing high accuracy in a non-verbal test involving as few as eight colors, especially in children even though majority of scientific community puts it high on discredited tests lists.
Reminds me of astrology, tarot, palm reading, etc.
