Okay, so I just completed that quiz, and I'll post my results here before going into a description of what it means. And saying it now, while I cam going to be critical of this quiz in relation to myself - THAT DOES NOT MEAN FOR A SECOND I DO NOT FIND IT AWESOME. No, seriously, this is a brilliant quiz and I highly support people going and looking at it. It can be found here

Shade: Light
Level: Ninja (Soul)
Color: Green
Archetype: The Paladin
Traits: Dominant Negative Masculine

You are on the side of Light; you would be a Green Ranger. Your animal is the Panther (DNM).

And yes, that's as far as I'm posting because while the other stuff is interesting, it would take up a helluva lot of room before I can get into my description. But yes, I will be looking to it as I get into my description. And yes, I will be focusing on whether or not it applies to me before I actually get on to the actual colour theory stuff. So be warned of rambling.  Side note: the colour theory is part of what makes me wish I could use Fandom in my media analysis portfolio (due May 3rd, and still not really started properly yet... Yeah, I know, bad of me but I just can't get properly focuses on it).

Okay, so let's get started. It says that I fight for the side of Light. Well, yeah, okay, I agree with that whole heartedly. I'm a humanitarian, and believe that everyone deserves a fair life, and I can't stand people who try to pull others down or give them a hard time. Being a Ninja ... well. let's see what the quiz says:

Calm and patient, Ninja types would prefer to let a situation play itself out until a solution becomes apparent. While they possess more finesse and patience than the other types, they are not suited to quick action or hasty changes in tactics. Quieter than the other two divisions, they sometimes have a tendency to brood

...Okay, I've got patience, but not a lot of it. While I am willing to wait and let a situation to play out my advantage, I will get bored often and just storm in to sort it out (I'm a red-head, apparently that temper is not just a stereotype). So ... hasty changes in tactics, yeah I'm fine with it. Okay, I'll be slightly annoyed at having to change, but I'm fine with it. Basically, I'm saying I'm probably not a Ninja.  Which brings me on to my colour, and my 'animal.

Green anger is a cold, slow-burning flame. It's usually a terrifying thing to behold, because it can do so much more damage. Luckily, Greens don't get truly angry very often, and when they do, it's a righteous rage

Okay, I can't lie. In relation to me, this bit is completely and utterly correct and frankly I wish it wasn't. I'm not proud of my temper, I know that it's one of those things about me that can be downright loathsome. Cold and slow-burning... well yeah, I let things just build and build, until eventually I'm overflowing and I just snap and beware those who are in my path when I do. Like I said, I'm not proud of it, but it's part of me. So ... score two for the quiz so far.

the Green Archetype is also known as the Holy Knight.  [...] usually noble and honorable, warriors who fight to uphold what they believe in and protect the innocent

... This bit threw me for a moment, because I couldn't think of whether or not I'd done anything that would either support or contradict this statement. I mean, yes I will fight to support my beliefs - often loudly and with extensive use of my colourful but coarse vocabulary when getting frustrated - but protect the innocent? Jury's still out on this little bit people, we'll give it a half mark.

Often loners to some extent, they tend to be very self-contained, rarely giving anyone a glimpse into their inner self. Their friendship is hard to obtain, but once given, is nearly impossible to lose. And most people who have put forth the effort will agree that, on the whole, the rewards are worth it.

Erm, okay. Here's an interesting thing., While I would agree with this statement - loner, rarely giving a glimpse - people I know would dsiagree, and say I'm a very open person. Apart from when I'm having problems because I am not the type to unload, I'm the type to bury. ... Which is part of the reason I snap and leads to the whole bad temper thing that we were talking about earlier. From there it goes on to mentuion about how Greens will only give respect to those they feel have earnt it and I have to agree this is a big issue with me, and I think is part of the reason I get jokingly labelled an anarchist in my little group at uni. I have... big issues with authority in general. I don't like being told what to do, especially by people who quite frankly don't have a damn right to tell me anything.

Greens follow orders only when they respect the person giving them, and rank isn't necessarily going to win a Green's respect. They have little patience for bureaucracy, mindless rules, or doing things 'because that's the way it is.' Often, Greens make better leaders than followers, because they will never needlessly endanger a person under their protection

Like I said above, yeah, this part is true to me. ESPECIALLY the part about never needlessly endangering a person under my protection. And I am being kind of serious there - one of my 'titles' is uni mother, because I'm the one to worry about everyone and make sure they're all okay and settled before I start to worry about myself. Yes, this is probably not a good thing as it means I'm more likely to be an idiot when it comes to myself, but hey, girl's gotta go what a girl's gotta do. As mentioned, I've got issues with authority, and it takes a lot for me to work through them. I'm more likely now to snap at authority than I would have been 3-4 years ago. ... I have a lot of leftover issues due to High School.

From this point the quiz looses a mark. It says that bad things often happen to Greens and while I can't disagree with it - 12 years of issues to sort through and creating a lot of my current attitude problems - that doesn't necessarily mean I want to agree with it. Instead, I want to focus on the very last section.

A Dominant person is in the front of the crowd, usually the focus of attention. A Negative person is more quiet and reserved, less active. A Masculine person is not definitely male persay; rather, he or she is more of a loner regarding problem solving. A Masculine person tends to solve problems on his or her own, only getting help when no other options are available.

I'd love to know how I'm a Dominant Negative person. Negative Masculine I understand, those can co-exist quite happily, but dominant and negative? I'd love to hear the theories behind there.

But this leads me into how I'm going to round off this rambling entry. What do I think of the colour theory? Well, like I said, it's one of the many reasons I'd love to be able to use fandom related things n my media portfolio, but on the whole I do think Ellen Brand latched on to something very true when she created it, even if I'm sure there's a lot more subsections to each colour than we necessarily pay attention to, and even if I'm sure Sixth Rangers pretty much mess the average. In connection with me however, well... okay, so it was more near the mark than I'd have liked it to be.

... So when do I get my morpher then?

Yeah some of those theories are really odd. I find some of it just really really random. But I did it too and this is what I scored:

Shade: Light
Level: Ninja (Soul)
Color: Black
Archetype: The Bard
Traits: Recessive Negative Masculine
You are on the side of Light; you would be a Black Ranger. Your animal is the Frog (RNM)
Tallies
Light - 4. - Shadow - 4. Dark - 2.
Dino - 0. Thunder - 1. Ninja - 3.
Red - 5. Green - 10. Blue - 2. Pink - 6. Yellow - 5. Black - 11. Purple - 8. White - 7.

Wielders who draw from the Light tend to be what most consider 'good;' noble, unselfish, compassionate, honorable-- or at least hold these up as an ideal to shoot for. Should a holder betray these virtues completely, he or she will find that the connection has disappeared.

Ninja is level of the soul. Calm and patient, Ninja types would prefer to let a situation play itself out until a solution becomes apparent. While they possess more finesse and patience than the other types, they are not suited to quick action or hasty changes in tactics. Quieter than the other two divisions, they sometimes have a tendency to brood.

Reliable, calm, and supportive, Blacks serve as the perfect second-in-command for a team or a squadron. No matter what burdens are placed on their shoulders, Blacks stand up under them, never shying away from their duties. Many Blacks are singers or storytellers, hence the name of the archetype. Even those without much artistic talent, however, are mediators and peacemakers, just like the bards of old.

Notable Blacks: Darkwing Duck - Launchpad McQuack (Dino), Power Rangers - Zack Taylor (Thunder), Power Rangers - Adam Park (Black Ninja with Yellow streaks), Digimon - Joe Kido (Ninja)

A Recessive person is usually in the background, letting the friends do most of the work, providing support when necessary. A Negative person is more quiet and reserved, less active. A Masculine person is not definitely male persay; rather, he or she is more of a loner regarding problem solving. A Masculine person tends to solve problems on his or her own, only getting help when no other options are available.

You got the exact same as my friend. Oddly, it doesn't describe her a single bit.

It kinda describes me but all this darkness/light/masculine seems a tad out of place to me.

Hm, I'm trying to work out why these are important tbh. The 'masculine' seems really.... out of place to me.

Stop being confusing and thus seeming out of place, traits from quiz *shakes fist in their direction*

I know virtually nothing about Power Rangers, aside from the eps I watched when it first came out. I just took that and I got almost the same results as you. The only difference is that I'm Shadow, not Light.

Huh, I wonder what you answered to give a shadow response. And to be fair, I don't think you need to know much about the show to be able to take the quiz.

Not sure, but I had 5 Shadow and 4 Light, so it was only off by one.

I got dominant and negative also - I think it tends to mean that you end up being the center of attention/towards the core of a group of friends, even if you don't seek it out.

I also disagree with Ellen's green theory - I think it actually means "sixth" not Green.

Ah right.... yeah, it still doesn't make a lot of sense to me, but your explanation does so, eh.

See, I haven't read Ellen's theory in ages so I'm a little fuzzy on details
