Brain Color Clue of the Day- An Art and Medical Mosaic

One day I was speaking with Mary Ann Ryan, owner of Kidz ‘n Kaboodles photography. During our conversation Mary Ann said, “I think our Brain Color personalities are a mosaic.” I loved her unique perspective of our personalities

Below are two of mosaic definitions. The first is a common definition and the second resonated with me because of diversity of our Brain Color Personalities.

1.  A picture or decoration made of small, usually colored pieces of inlaid stone, glass, etc.
2. Something resembling such a picture or decoration in composition, especially in being made up of diverse elements: a mosaic of borrowed ideas.


I did some further definition research and found a fascinating medical definition for Mosaic:

An individual or tissue containing two or more types of genetically different cells. All females are mosaics because  of X-chromosome inactivation (lyonization). Mosaic patterns can affect how genetic disorders are expressed. For example, about 5 percent of people with Down’s syndrome have a mosaic variant, where only some cells have an  extra chromosome 21.

Mosaic is a picturesque way to describe our multi-faceted attributes and abilities.
