The easiest way to discover your own iMA High Colour is to take the iMA Questionnaire by clicking on the button below.

Discovering another person's iMA High Colour is more challenging. If you can have that person agree to take the iMA Questionnaire, great!

If not (which is usually the case), you need to figure it out for yourself. Like anything, it takes practice but it gets easier the more you do it.

People give clues as to their iMA High Colour. If you observe them carefully, these clues will jump out at you and their iMA High Colour will become clear.

In this series of Biblical iMA posts, I have taken a number of well-known characters from the Bible and used what we know about them (either from the biblical text itself or on the basis of Jewish traditional interpretative texts) to determine their iMA High Colour to the best of my ability.

I hope that you will find these interesting and that they will serve as examples as to how to figure out the iMA High Colour of another person.

What Colour Was Sarah?

According to Jewish tradition, Sarah was an equal partner with her husband Abraham in spreading the understanding of the One God to everyone and anyone who would listen.

The Talmud teaches that Abraham would teach the men and Sarah would teach the women.

Sarah was also Abraham’s partner in providing hospitality for anyone who would pass by their tent. 

The Talmud notes that their tent was open on all four sides so that people could be welcomed to join them from which ever direction they came.

However, the Bible portrays Sarah as being someone who decided something once - however hard that decision - and was then highly determined to follow through.

Sarah shared Abraham's values and accepted his vision for building a new society fully. However, she recognised that hard decisions are sometimes needed along the way to achieve that goal.

When faced with what she saw as a threat to the realisation of those values, first from Hagar and then from Hagar's son Ishmael, Sarah acted decisively.

Abraham was clearly troubled by Sarah's insistence to carry out something which appeared cruel and devastating. God came to Abraham and told him: "Whatever Sarah has said to you, listen to her voice." Only then was he reassured that Sarah understood better than he did what needed to be done to preserve their vision and build the moral society that they were building together for God.

Sarah was clearly very assertive, even with Abraham.
Sarah assured that nothing could be allowed to undermine what she and Abraham stood for.
High Reds are decisive and very assertive.
