This Color Quiz Analyzes Your Personality!

*Disclaimer* This post requires a bit of work from you, the reader. But if you try it, I'm telling you, it'll be cool.

Want to see something cool? Go to this website and choose some colors that catch your eye. Depending on what you choose, it'll give you a short analysis about your personality. I tried it and I found it to be pretty accurate.

Anyway, go ahead and give it a shot. I'll wait.

...

What did you think? Pretty good?

Okay, now watch this video after the jump:



I'm not sure how much you fell for this trick, but before watching this video, I had taken a very similar test and was pretty amazed that it was so accurate. It wasn't until recently that I noticed how vague all the statements really were.

For those of you curious about this, it is called the Forer Effect. And the video is from Darren Brown, a very talented magician/illusionist/hypnotist/skeptic person who does a lot of these tricks to sort of show people that what they think is supernatural is usually just mind games. Take a look at his wiki and watch some of his youtube clips to see his other rather amazing feats.
