PROaupair is committed to matching host families with professional au pairs that are compatible with their families. How does one determine if an au pair will be a good fit?

To ensure compatibility, PROaupair helps host families better understand their personalities and those of their professional au pair through the Dr. Hartman Personality Assessment test, known as “The Color Code.” The Colour Code divides individuals into one of four personalities, each coded to a colour, depending upon their key motivation: power, intimacy, peace, or fun. Certain personalities are more naturally compatible with others, providing a filter to help determine a good match.

All professional au pairs and host families take the test as part of the application process.

Red (Power):Reds are the power wielders and getting things done is what motivates them. They are responsible, decisive, and proactive.

Blue (Intimacy): Blues are the do-gooders and creating quality relationships and having purpose is what motivates them. They are loyal, sincere, and thoughtful.

White (Peace): Whites are the peacekeepers and staying calm and balanced in a crisis is what motivates them. They are kind, adaptable and good listeners.

Yellow (Fun): Yellows are the fun lovers and living life in the moment is what motivates them. They are charismatic, spontaneous and sociable.
