Since the test answers will show up when you look up "Today's Active Topics" and BabsLights doesn't want people to see anyone else's answers before they take the test themselves, I think I should fill up the space at the beginning of this post with something else. But suddenly my mind is a blank. Let's see...here's something: I've been enjoying my TESOL (teaching English to speakers of other languages) course very much.

1. HAPPY - bright pink

2. SAD - grey

3. BLUE - blue

4. LONELY - dark green

5. LIGHT - light blue

6. AIRY - white

7. WATER - deep blue

8. COLD - ice blue

9. CHILDISH - yellow

10. SUNSET - orange

11. ARROGANT - ?? nothing comes to mind

12. RAINY - grey

13. MIDNIGHT - black

14. REFLECTIVE - again, nothing

15. WAR - brown

Well, that didn't work, because the preview in "Today's Active Topics" doesn't update, apparently, once you've edited the post. So here's a new post intended to keep new test-takers from being influenced by my answers to the test.

Hey just had an observation that I have to share.... I noticed that the most common colour so far for CHILDISH is PINK! (Considering a child can be either male or female ....no I am definitely not going there :D

Post subject:  Re: A test - no studying required

And the least common color so far for childish is R37 (or is that just another way of saying pink?).

Post subject:  Re: A test - no studying required

if the least common colour for Childish is PINK, what would the most common colour for Childish be? (and pleased don't say pink of a varying shade). I would be rather curious for the opinion of a colour therapist! :cool:

Except for war, I pretty much reacted instinctively. At war, I had to think... Strange... I drew a blank and hence I equated that to darkness and therefore black.

Salzberg, would you mind translating your answers into layman's terms?
