Corporations tend to spend millions of dollars in Color Psychology research to find out how our color preferences can be used to market their goods better. All business aside though, knowing your favorite color can give you insight into understanding the type of person you are and what type of goals you set for yourself.
So tell us your favorite color and we'll tell you what it reveals about your personality.
Red is most associated with confidence, love and lust, and for good reasons because people who prefer red as their favorite are said to be action oriented and have a need for deep physical fulfillment experienced through all five senses. You might know these people as the friend who loves hot and spicy food, or the one who loves a bold red lipstick! Lovers of red are definitely into making a lasting and big impression.
People who like orange as their favorite color tend to be social butterflies who have a great need to be around others. They like being part of a group and being respected for their contributions. Orange lovers also get motivated with physical or social challenges in their life.
It's the color of money and of all things nature, but according to color psychology scientists, people who claim their favorite color as green lean more towards the tendencies associated with money. They like safety and security in their lives, finances as well as in relationships. They often like to be noticed for their wealth, efforts, and looks - and probably why they might be the quickest to jump on the latest diet trend.
The color most associated with little girls and their dollies might be remaking its image as it becomes socially more acceptable for males to like pink too. Either way, people who claim pink as their favorite, have a strong need for unconditional love. Some also claim that they tend to be more sheltered and naive, living in a bubble of fantasy and a world of their own making.
By all accounts, blue is the most favored color in the world. Sources estimate that between 35-40% of men and women around the world call blue their favorite. It also happens to be the color which surrounds us the most in nature with its skies and waters. The color itself is said to boost serenity and peace, which is definitely the feeling we all get after spending a day at the beach. So, if you are among that majority who love blue as their favorite color, then it's in your nature to be calm, lovable, and reliable.
From the most favorite to the least, yellow is on the top of the list of only 5% of the people. But like it's frequently associated with the mighty sun, the person who likes yellow is said to be highly individualistic and happy. You love to inspire, create new ideas, and basically shine on!
