    What is Your Microgreen Tray Color Based on Your Personality?

    The Enneagram is a typology personality test that identifies how people react to the world, manage their feelings and basic fears, and interprets patterns based on nurtured traits. The test breaks the personalities down into nine different types. You will likely find you relate to several of the nine personality types- but one should stand out the most as your primary type.

    Based on the Enneagram, we have compiled a quiz to determine which Bootstrap Farmer microgreen tray color suits your personality type best. We have even included suggested microgreen varieties based on your results.
