The color diagnostics of Lüscher allows one to measure the psychophysiological state of a person, his/her stress tolerance, activity and communication skills. Professor Lüscher discovered that the subject's choice of color shows the state of their psychosomatic and emotional status and how they feel about themselves. The color perception is objective and universal for everyone, but individual preferences in choosing colors are subjective, which makes it possible to measure actual subjective states with test colors.
The Lüscher Color Test (LCT) is simple, but extremely informative; it does not diagnose personality traits, but its state: experiments show that after 1-2 months people LCTs are laid out in a completely different way.
At present, there exist two versions of the Lüscher test: short and complete. The short version uses an eight-color table that contains:
The Clinical Color Test comprises the following seven color tables:
The testing procedure consists in arranging the colors in descending order of their subjective pleasantness. The instruction provides a request to distract from associations associated with fashion, traditions, generally accepted tastes and try to choose colors, only based on one's personal relationship.
The results of color diagnostics provide valuable psychotherapeutic information, since the choice of color is based on unconscious processes, it reveals what a person really is, and not how he/she represents himself or what he/she would like to be, as is often the case when using interrogation methods. The Lüscher test allows one to perform both quick and in-depth analysis of the personality based on the information obtained by simply ranking the colors.
Choose a card of the most pleasant color for you, without associating the color of the card with the color of your clothes, cars, etc. As soon as the card you have chosen disappears, repeat your actions until you sort out all the cards.Then relax for 1-2 minutes and repeat the procedure.
