You can learn a lot of surface things about a person just by cruising their pinterest account — one look at mine and you’d discover that I have thing for classic cars, travel, and famous rock-n-roll groupies of the 1970s. But it turns out a second look at our pin boards can reveal even deeper personality traits about who we really are. Small choices we make (like how many boards we create) reveal things about intellect, creativity, and self-discipline. Are you competitive? Compassionate? Pragmatic? Scroll through our analysis and find out what your boards really say about you!

    Not ALL of my boards are organized by color, but I do have one for my favorite: yellow! Looking at it makes me so happy. I agree with most of these but I don’t see how someone who organizes by color is necessarily cautious. To me, different colors focus on different moods. Very fun to look at and relate to these!
