BIC® 4-Color™ & its 4 Distinct Color Personalities #LoveBIC4Color

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of BIC 4-Color pen for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Some kids go ga-ga walking through the candy isle at the store, seeing an abundance of sugary treats within their reach. Some kids are more excited about the toy isle and all the imaginative possibilities different toys evoke. Me? Take me down the office supply isle and watch me go!

From crisp, clean notebooks to the many colorful pads of sticky notes, staplers and their accompanying staples (yes, those excite me, too), rubber band balls, and the numerous pencils and pens available, I could spend hours just looking at all the shiny new supplies.

Don't judge me!

One of my favorite products to date is the BIC® 4-Color™ pen-I mean 4 Inseparable Colors in 1 Pen? How can that NOT be the coolest office supply to have on hand? Especially knowing this mighty pen is so versatile! Regardless of what mood your in or what type of appointment, birthday, or other note you have to jot down on your calendar, you have 4 different colors to color code to your heart's content.

Now THAT, my friends, is a perfectionist's dream.

Did you know that each color has its own distinct personality? You can read the individual personality descriptions below. Who knows, you may relate to and form a bond with one of them, resulting in the need to rush out and buy a pen (or multiple pens) to support your colorful inky brethren.

Blue: Blue likes himself. And with good reason: he knows that he's important. Blue cheese, blue skies, blue jeans, blue moon; he's everywhere! To prove his point, look at the names of his family members: Navy Blue, Oxford Blue, Royal Blue...Ever heard of "royal yellow"? Exactly. Let's admit it… Blue is the boss.

Green: Green is the jealous type…wouldn’t you be if your Red, Blue, and Black counterparts were used [way] more often than you? He’s a foodie. Such a foodie that he chronicles each of his daily meals on his social media profile. Because if you eat a meal and don’t take a picture of it, did it really even happen? Green has a soft side too. For example, last summer he cooked a huge cat nip cake for his beloved cat, Mr. Furrybottom. Oh, and Green still sucks his thumb. But according to him, that's an old trick to prevent him from snoring.

Red: Red likes it when things are correct. When matches are parallel and books are well aligned on a shelf. His favorite moment of the day? When it is 11:11 sharp on his digital watch. His passion in life? He has many: spelling, grammar, conjugation, calculation. And a bit of syntax on the weekend. Want to make him happy? Give him some mistakes to correct. He even makes mistakes on purpose sometimes, just for the pleasure of correcting them.

Black: He just doesn’t understand…why does it always have to be about Blue? He is not as fit as Blue although he likes to think that he's just as handsome as he is – in a different way though. (Muscles are so last season). He secretly dreams of becoming the Undisputed Master of the World but hasn't yet come up with a clear plan for this. And before we forget (although he doesn't like to talk about it), his natural hair color is blond.

While I'm not as conceited as Blue and certainly not a VIP, I do quite unapologetically love myself! Green is the jealous type and I can't help feel jealousy is a wasted emotion; although I do bond with green over our mutual love of food. Black is a little too 'world domination' for my tastes but, truthfully, I am indeed a natural blond. So therefore I think I resemble Red's personality the best!

Actually, the description is pretty spot on-so much so that, back in high school, I used to correct my sister's homework for fun. If that makes me a nerd, I fully embrace nerd-dome!

If you're like me and thrive off the thrills of buying office supplies, namely currently referring to the BIC® 4-Color™ pen, you can do so online through Amazon or Staples!

And don't forget to follow on social media where you can follow along with funny updates from each of the 4 personalities including their correlating colored spandex suites, contests, and neat things that can be done with your BIC® 4-Color™ pen.

This post reminds me of "You've Got Mail" when she talks about the smell of fresh pencils in the fall :) even though it's about pens.

And one of my teachers used to ONLY use red pens!

I guess I'm blue 'cause I'm the boss of the goats. Just don't tell the goats....

Unknown said...

I'm thinking I'd be green. I mean, I AM green, like treehugger green. LOL

I would say I am a blue color personality. It's so calm. These kinds of pens used to be very popular in the 1970s.

Momma Told Me said...

That's so funny! I think I'm a blue, but I identify with black a little too. I have several BIC multi-color pens and I love the convenience of being able to color code my note-taking.

Grace said...

I have to admit that I always go down the office aisle as well to check out what new pens are available. Those personality colors are too funny and black will be happy to know I always choose him.

Cinny said...

lol, colored personalities huh, well I do like blue but I don't think I'm self absorbed...haha

Lena B said...

Joining the blue crowd - totally

Ellen said...

I think that I am probably most like red. What a fun way to see yourself.

Rebekah said...

My husband is like you, he loves office supplies.

I think I'm most like black :)

Debi said...

I love office supplies. My whole family does, the start of school when we have to buy so much, makes everyone happy. I think I am a blue I guess

Jenn said...

Too tricky to pick just one. I am really a blend of Blue, Red and Green. I could use a pen like this.
