Almost everyone has a favourite colour. Even if you think you don’t have one, you’re probably still more naturally drawn to some colours as compared to others.
We all have our preferences — that’s just how we roll! That said it shall be erroneous to think, believe or say that colours don’t have any impact on your choices, feelings, and behaviours – so to say our personality in general; because as you take a closer look into this inference, it shall establish exactly the opposite.
What colour would you choose for your first car, or your anniversary outfit, or maybe for your rooms in your new apartment? If that gives you some food for thought and without realising if by now, you have already thought of colours for the questions I asked, then I’m halfway through! The psychology of colours is a study on how the colours play a role in our personalities and behavioral traits, and it’s a real thing. (Umm okay… I know most of you might argue that it’s partially based on pseudo-science, but it’s also a real thing.) This isn’t to suggest that your favourite colour defines you, or any of us for that matter, but if it gives you an, “OMG! That’s totally me!” moment, then I will have worked good enough to establish my views.
Before we get engrossed into knowing more about this interesting aspect of colours, let us answer one simple question. What is my favorite color?
Don’t think much about it, just be spontaneous; and accept the first colour that comes to your mind. You do not have to contemplate anything or analyse your choice.
Because it is this instinctual choice of a colour that tells you about yourself; how you function and how others see you. It is the means to understanding your behaviour and character traits as well as your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual states. It reflects the way you operate in the world, your strengths and weaknesses, your vulnerabilities, your deepest needs and your challenges.
What if I like more than one colour?
If you have two or more equally favorite colors, go on reading further for both colours, to discover and fully understand yourself. You will find that you relate to parts of each color profile.
Most of us do and a lot of us have had the same one favourite colour since childhood. Some will prefer another color for a while, depending on their needs at that time, but will come back to their original favorite when those specific needs are met. If you have changed your personality colour, or favourite colour, try to identify the circumstances surrounding your life at that time as your new favourite will reflect qualities you need to attract into your life to help you deal with those circumstances.
For those of you who don’t think you have a personality colour, take a look at the clothes you wear or the way you choose to decorate your surroundings. Are there one or more colours you always choose? Then these will be the colours that reflect your personality and your deepest needs. Whether you like or dislike a colour can quite subtly reflect and relate to your own life experiences and your positive and negative associations to the colour as well as your need for the qualities of that colour.
Surround yourself with the colours you love, either by wearing them or using them in your environment. They will empower you to be true to yourself, to show your true colours. Always use a small amount of other colours with your favorites to keep your energies and behavior balanced.
Hope by now you have a favourite colour!
