It's designed for you to use on a celebrity or a friend. To determine your own season, ask a friend to take it for you.
Unlike most color analysis quizzes, this quiz doesn't depend on a person's hair, eye, or skin tone - since none of those factors can tell a person's season.
Instead, you'll be asked about colors that flatter or don't flatter the person in question.

If you need more help diagnosing a friend - or yourself - consider buying cards to drape yourself at home.
- A lot of you have suggested that I include color images or asked why I don't include them. I initially planned to, but after some thought I decided against it (except in a few cases).
Here's my logic: If I include a picture, the person taking the quiz will naturally answer Yes or No based on the picture, not on the color name. And I can't control how pictures appear on other people's monitors. A True Spring might choose No for a picture of bright yellow-green if it doesn't appear as True-Spring's bright yellow-green on her monitor. So a picture, I fear, might define the color too narrowly.
By contrast, if I only use color names, I can build the quiz using the fact that most people have somewhat similar ideas of what the most generic color names mean, and make the questions progressively more and more limiting. People taking the quiz for any Springs and many Winters will probably give a Yes for "bright yellow green," even though each quiz taker may have a slightly different mental image of that color.
- Don't take my Yes/No paths as endorsements of particular colors for particular seasons. I have built the quiz based on how I think people may answer, not on what I think actually looks good on them. For example, I wouldn't recommend any color called "hot pink" for a True Autumn, but a person can give a Yes for hot pink and still reach TA - because I'm guessing that some people will think their TA friend looks good in hot pink. (Because that TA friend probably looks good in some colors that are pretty similar to hot pink, because some of the TA colors are kind of similar to hot pink.)
