Colors can convey a lot of meaning. There may have been times when you found a particular color alluring, maybe because it represented your mood at that moment. However, if you remain attracted to a single color for a long period of time, it could be an indication that the favorite color reflects a portion of your personality.
Almost everyone has a favorite color. Even if you don’t think you have one, you’re probably still more naturally drawn to some colors more than others. We all have our preferences — that’s just how human beings roll.
Read below to find out what your favorite color reveals about you. Do the words ring true for you?
If you like black, you’re not the type to kill spiders, you save them. Many attribute the color black with darkness, but those who favor it are actually part sophisticated and part moody. Black can indicate power, creativity, elegance, and privateness. You strive for power and control in life, but are often artistic and intuitive and do not share things well with others.
Those who call black their favorite color tend to be complicated realists with a need for control. Their realistic view of the world keeps their pessimism and moodiness in check, while their simple approach to always keeping things dark and dreary makes them appear quite sophisticated.
White is rarely anyone’s favorite color, but those that do like it may be aware that the color signifies purity, birth, and innocence. Liking the color can also mean that you are organized, independent, and logical. Your taste is refined, and you enjoy things that are well crafted and beautiful.
However, people may misread you as aloof because of your self-confidence and naturally reserved nature but appreciate your mindfulness and wisdom when they get to know you.
As most people know, red is the color of intense desire and aggression, and therefore if your favorite color is red, chances are you are someone who is driven, adventurous, and active.
Red shows that you’re assertive and prone to impulsive actions and variable moods. You have drive and determination, and prefer action and risk-taking behaviors. You lead with optimism and an animated can-do attitude that’s contagious.
You are not one to hide your feelings and don’t hesitate to say exactly how you feel if someone disappoints you or steps on your toes. You are also outgoing and usually enjoy being the life of the party and center of attention.
Apparently as people get older they start to shun the color orange. But if it is your favorite color, it means that you are a social person with a vibrant personality, as the color represents energy, warmth, and, enthusiasm.
You’re someone who has perfected being in the present, living in the moment, and focusing on what and who is in front of you. Team building is a natural skill to you and others are drawn to your zest for life and never-ending positivity.
People who like purple tend to be unique, don’t care about fitting in, and see the world through violet-colored glasses. This color symbolizes mystery, spirituality and royalty. Purple dyes used to be so rare and expensive that only monarchs could afford to wear them.
Those who fancy the color purple are perfectionists who require emotional security in life and are good humanitarians who help others in need. Bursting at the seams with charisma, you are like a people magnet and take pride in marching to the beat of your own drum.
Loving yellow involves a level of optimism that most people over the age of 10 just don’t have. Because of this optimism, and the idealism that comes along with it, people who love yellow sometimes come off as whacky, aloof, or shy, but that’s just because the moody folks are straight-up jealous.
If yellow is your favorite, it shows that you have a vivid imagination, nervous energy, and a need to help the world. You long to be respected and crave admiration for your wisdom. You’re a safe friend and a reliable confidant.
Those who like pink actually probably hated it just for the sake of it when they were younger. But anyone who uses the ‘color of romance’ to express themselves is showing the world that they want to be loved unconditionally and accepted by society. They genuinely revel in the success and happiness of others, especially friends and family.
If pink is your favorite, it means you are compassionate — you are the one those closest to you depend on when they need a shoulder to cry on. You have delicate sensibilities, and seeing the world through a pink perspective can sometimes cause you to be a little naive and sheltered.
Blue, the color of the sky and the sea, is by far the most popular color. Liking blue means you probably like other ‘popular’ things too — such as rewatching “Friends“, drinking iced tea, and petting every dog you come across. Blue symbolizes peace and tranquility, and those who like it are usually calm, trustworthy, and loyal people.
Preferring blue shows that you’re deliberate and introspective. You retreat to gentler surroundings in times of stress and are sensitive to the feelings of others. You are fair and just. You promote unity and security. People remember you for being warm, friendly, and engaging.
Green is commonly associated with jealousy and greed, but it also signifies nature, good luck, fertility, and rebirth. If you prefer green, you are committed to others but can be conceited or preoccupied with your reputation. You could also be greatly concerned about your finances.
You’re probably a good citizen and pillar of the community. You are frank, moral, reputable, and sensitive to social customs and etiquette. You feel deep affection for your family and have a special connection to nature.
