Have you ever wondered why does your wardrobe dominate a particular colour more than the others? Well, your colour choice reveals a great deal about you than you think. Here’s What your favourite colour reveal about you

Red

You are loud, bold, boisterous and full of energy. It also means you are extroverted, optimistic and courageous. You like to be the centre of attention and other people are drawn towards the vitality and the sense of excitement you exhibit. Lovers of red colour can also be aggressive and easily get angry, often exhibiting a violent temper. Such people are also ambitious, competitive and like to be the winner exhibiting achievement oriented personality as second place is not good enough for them. They tend to flare up instantaneously but calm down quite quickly once they get it out of their system and then they forget it ever happened as they do not hold any grudge. If red is your favourite colour, it also means you have a passion and enthusiasm for life and are not afraid to pursue your goals and dreams. You are always in a hurry, wanting to do everything right away. Patience is not one of your strong points. However, you do not procrastinate as you never put off things until tomorrow what you can do today.

Blue

You are calm, conservative, reliable and trustworthy. You can be quite trusting of others although you are very wary in the beginning until you are sure of the other person. There is also a deep need to be trusted. You are genuine and you tend to take your responsibilities quite seriously. There is a thirst for knowledge in order to gain wisdom and you are spiritual/religious with a high degree of devotion to family, God, or other causes that are important to you. Blue colour also exhibits your emotional nature as you are aware of other people’s feelings and are sensitive to the moods of others. You are also sentimental and tend to cry easily at sad movies. There is a need to have a direction or order in your living and work spaces as untidiness and unpredictability overwhelms you. You can also be quite rigid as you tend to stick to what is familiar to you and it is hard to sway you from that path as you stubbornly do things your way even if there is a better way.

Pink

You are loving, kind, generous and sensitive to the needs of others. You are the nurturers of the world – you love to give nurturing and to receive nurturing in return. With a personality colour pink, you have a maternal instinct, with a need to protect and take care of others. You also have a need for this caring to be reciprocated as you do tend to neglect yourself in your determination to take care of the needs of others. You are very much in touch with your femininity – this includes men who are in touch with their feminine side. With your optimistic and positive outlook on life, you see the good in everyone. You are methodical and organized, although you can sometimes be rather flippant when the immature girly side of pink appears. You are refined, reserved, calm and non-violent which may give the impression of shyness. You have a naivety, sweetness and beauty about you which can become girlish and immature in some.

Yellow

You are creative, often being the one who comes up with new ideas and you tend to have your head in the clouds much of the time. With a personality colour yellow, you can be very critical of yourself as well as others – you are a perfectionist. You analyze everything, all the time, and are methodical in your thinking. There is a tendency to hide your emotions and putting on a brave face in times of adversity. Although you find it easy to make money, you tend to spend it rapidly and unwisely. You are good at networking and getting information out of others. People who like yellow colour are spontaneous – you are able to think quickly on your feet and make instant decisions. You have a modern outlook. You communicate well on a mental level with like-minded people but can become bitter and sharp-tongued if crossed.

Orange

You are warm, optimistic, extroverted and often flamboyant. You are also friendly, good-natured and an agreeable person in general. You are assertive and determined rather than aggressive – having a personality colour orange means you are more light-hearted and less intense than those who love red. You thrive on human social contact and social gatherings, bringing all types together. As a personality colour orange you enjoy partying and socializing and planning all types of social events – orange people are the life of the party, the uninhibited performer. You are often the loud talker in a group. While you are charming and sociable you do tend to be a show-off. You get great satisfaction from helping others and they find you inspiring with your vitality and positive energy. You live your life based on gut reactions and tend to move on easily from life’s setbacks.

Black

Prestige and power are important to you. You are independent, strong-willed and determined and like to be in control of yourself and situations. As a lover of black, you may be conservative and conventional – black is restricting and contained. With black as your personality colour, you may be too serious for your own good – bring some colour into your life to lighten you up – life should be fun. You may appear intimidating to even your closest colleagues and friends, with an authoritarian, demanding and dictatorial attitude. You like to keep people at a distance, guarding your emotions and creating an impenetrable barrier between yourself and others. With a personality colour black, you may be looking for protection from any negativity that surrounds you. You hold things inside and are not good at sharing yourself with others, possibly out of fear. You are methodical in your work, making sure everything is completed as required, down to the last detail.

Green

You are a practical, down-to-earth person with a love of nature. You are stable and well balanced or are striving for balance – in seeking this balance, you can at times become unsettled and anxious. Having a personality colour green means you are kind, generous and compassionate – good to have around during a crisis as you remain calm and take control of the situation until it is resolved. You are caring and nurturing to others – however, you must be careful not to neglect your own needs while giving to others. You are intelligent and love to learn – you are quick to understand new concepts. With a personality colour green, you have a great need to love and to be loved and you tend to wear your heart on your sleeve- you are an open book who doesn’t hide his/her feelings. You are a good citizen and like to be involved in community groups. You have high moral standards and doing the right thing is important to you. You like to be accepted, appreciated and admired for the good you do in the community as well as in your family life.

White

You are neat and immaculate in your appearance, in the presentation of your home and in your car, almost to the point of being fanatical. You have impeccable standards of cleanliness and hygiene and you expect others to adhere to your high standards. You are far-sighted, with a positive and optimistic nature. You are well-balanced, sensible, discreet and wise. With a personality colour white, you are cautious, practical and careful with money. You think carefully before acting – you are definitely not prone to impulsive behaviour. You tend to have a great deal of self-control. You can be very critical of yourself and others (in your need for perfection) – but you try to be fair and impartial as well. You are self-sufficient and a loner – you don’t want or need help from anyone. However, you may also experience times of loneliness because of this trait. You may be wishing to create simplicity in your life – perhaps a wish to re-create your childhood, lost youth and happier times in your past life.

Purple

You are sensitive and compassionate, understanding and supportive, thinking of others before yourself – you are the person others come to for help – being needed motivates you but sometimes people take advantage of you. You are a gentle and free spirit. Your feelings run deep and you can be quite sensitive to hurtful comments from others, although you would never show it. People who like purple colour have a peaceful and tranquil quality and a quiet dignity about you. Such people are drawn to your charismatic and alluring energy. You are usually introverted rather than extroverted and may give the impression of being shy although this is not the case. You dislike responsibility and have difficulty dealing with real day-to-day problems. You dislike being part of the crowd, wishing to stand apart from the mob – you like to be noticed for your individuality. You don’t like to copy others and you don’t like them to copy you. You often hold positions of power because you are visionary, but you delegate to others all the minor details that you aren’t interested in.
