4. Green and zigzag
Zigzag-shaped cookies can be a sign of instability of thought and a tendency to frequent changes in the point of view. In this context, these people’s mood and relationships with the environment are quite unstable. They prefer to be guided by sudden impulses, rather than logical conclusions. Green color also indicates emotional flexibility. They are moderately persistent, self-respecting individuals, who enjoy and know how to control various processes, but at the same time they are more inclined to being led, than being a leader.
5. Rectangular and yellow
Often people who choose a rectangle are going through a personal crisis at the time of taking this test, due to recent or upcoming changes.

Yellow color in this context indicates some impulsiveness and haste in making decisions, an active life position, and agitation.
