Are reaction formations Red?

Since they're basically "fake emotions" and inflexible, it stands to reason that they'd be more /. It'd be very ironic.

You've actually got me thinking with this one. I'm going to come back in a few days, once I've ruminated*, but here's a spoiler:

Not mono- .
Could very well be , in the same way I am.
I don't understand or well.
And I need to re-do my own color analysis and add it to my sig again.



*Because, dammit, I need time to ruminate!

Since from what I can tell it's a deception created by one's desire to be something they think of as "better" than they actually are I'd vote :W::U:. It could be :B: except it isn't based on gaining anything.
Besides, is the ego, and individuality is listed as one of it's "virtues". Reaction formations seem to be derived of superego conflicts.

By the way, histrionics is black/red, while we're talking about fake emotions.

Manipulation can be , and the fake hamminess is . The selfish attention-**** motivation is certainly .

It's more , though, because it's all about ME!

Hilariously, in my experience, people who go into that sort of thing tend to be whatever they accuse you of being.

They're White.


White is often associated with the sun, but there's a big difference in how the sun affects
a fertile Plains, versus its role in the Desert or elsewhere.  The Plains is a comfortable
landscape, where ample open space allows life to develop with a certain degree of luxury;
when people have this much room to spread out, they need reasons to come together in order
to fulfill their inner gregarious longings, and therefore white seeks to build things that
unite people, like cities and families.  It likes to cultivate these institutions and
nurture the individuals within them, as well as to eliminate things which pose a danger to
the resulting stability.  If there is a downside to White, then, it is that it does not
always know how to adapt to having its generous surroundings abruptly narrowed - it deals
somewhat poorly with crisis, and knowledge of this fact may drive it to be neurotic in its
attempts to prevent a crisis from occurring.  This can easily become unbalanced, but it is
almost invariably well-meaning.



Just keep in mind that this simply adds white to a person's colors; not that it makes them white.
