Black is the color of authority and power.
It is popular in fashion because it makes
people appear thinner. It is also stylish and
timeless. Black also implies submission. Priests wear black
to signify submission to God. Some fashion experts say a
woman wearing black implies submission to men. Black outfits
can also be overpowering, or make the wearer seem aloof or
evil. Villains, such as Dracula, often wear black.
Brides wear white to symbolize innocence and purity,naivete
White reflects light and is considered a summer color.
White is popular in decorating and in fashion because it is
light, neutral, and goes with everything. However,
white shows dirt and is therefore more difficult to keep
clean than other colors. Doctors and nurses wear white to
imply sterility.white has strong connotations of youth and purity. If you are an older
person, your preference for white could indicate a desire for
perfection and impossible ideals, maybe an attempt to
recapture lost youth and freshness. It may also symbolize a
desire for simplicity or the simple life.

The most emotionally intense color, red stimulates a faster
heartbeat and breathing. It is also the color of love.
Red clothing gets noticed and makes the wearer appear heavier.
Since it is an extreme color, red clothing might not help
people in negotiations or confrontations. Red cars are popular
targets for thieves. In decorating, red is usually used as
an accent. Decorators say that red furniture should be perfect
since it will attract attention.The color of strength, health, and vitality, Red is
often the color chosen by someone outgoing, aggressive,
vigorous and impulsive-or someone who would like to be!
It goes with an ambitious nature but those who choose it can
be abrupt at times, determined to get all they can out of life,
quick to judge people and take sides. Red people are usually
optimistic and can't stand monotony; they are rather restless
and not at all introspective, so they may be unaware of their
own shortcomings. They find it hard to be objective and may
blame others for any mishaps. Quiet people with a preference
for red may feel the need for the warmth, strength and
life-giving qualities of the color, or they blanket their
true feelings under a sober exterior. Red is usually chosen
by people with open and uncomplicated natures, with a zest
for life.
Harsh experience has probably matured the Maroon
person into someone likable and generous. It is often a
favorite color of someone who has been battered by life but
has come through. It indicates a well-disciplined Red
personality-one who has had difficult experiences and has
not come through unmarked but who has grown and matured in
the process.
The most romantic color, pink, is more tranquilizing.
Sports teams sometimes paint the locker rooms used by
opposing teams bright pink so their opponents will lose energy.
This color embodies the gentler qualities of Red,
symbolizing love and affection without passion. Women who
prefer Pink tend to be maternal. Pink desires protection,
special treatment and a sheltered life. Pink people require
affection and like to feel loved and secure, perhaps wanting
to appear delicate and fragile. Pink people tend to be
charming and gentle, if a trifle indefinite.
The color of royalty, purple connotes luxury, wealth, and
sophistication. It is also feminine and romantic. However,
because it is rare in nature, purple can appear artificial.
Solid, reliable brown is the color of earth and is abundant
in nature. Light brown implies genuineness while dark brown
is similar to wood or leather. Brown can also be sad and
wistful. Men are more apt to say brown is one of their
favorite colors.
This color of luxury and pleasure appeals to the
flamboyant and fun-loving person who likes a lively
social round. Orange people may be inclined to dramatize a
bit, and people notice them, but they are generally
good-natured and popular. They can be a little fickle and
vacillating, but on the whole they try hard to be agreeable.
Orange is the color of youth, strength, fearlessness,
curiosity and restlessness.
The color of happiness, wisdom and imagination,
Yellow is chosen by the mentally adventurous, searching for
novelty and self-fulfillment. Yellow usually goes with a
sunny and shrewd personality, with a good business head and a
strong sense of humor. It is the color of intellectuality and
all things to do with the mind. Yellow folks are usually
clear and precise thinkers who have a good opinion of their
own mental capacities and who have lofty ideals. They may at
times tend to shun responsibility, preferring freedom of
thought and action.
The color of harmony and balance, Green symbolizes
hope, renewal and peace, and is usually liked by the gentle
and sincere. Greens are generally frank, community-minded
people, fairly sociable but preferring peace at any price.
Green people can be too self-effacing, modest and patient,
so they may get exploited by others. They are usually refined,
civilized and reputable.
Soft, soothing, compassionate and caring, Blue is the
color of deliberation and introspection, conservatism and
duty. Patient, persevering, conscientious, sensitive and
self-controlled, Blues like to be admired for their steady
character and wisdom. They are faithful, but are often
worriers with somewhat inflexible beliefs and can be too
cautious, and suspicious of flamboyant behavior.
Exacting, discriminating, poised and attractive, the Blue-Green person tends to be sensitive, intellectual and refined, persevering and stable if rather detached. Blue-Greens have excellent taste, and are usually courteous and charming, capable but often refusing help or guidance.
Complex, imaginative and original, Turquoise people drive themselves hard and may be in a state of turmoil under their outwardly cool exterior.
This is often chosen by a person who lives "on a higher plane," who never notices anything sordid and who is always impeccably and beautifully dressed. Lavender people may be on a continual quest for culture and the refined things of life, high and noble causes but without the necessity of getting their hands dirty. A Lavender person is usually creative, charming, witty and civilized.
The color of caution and compromise, diligent Grays search for composure and peace and often work hard without reward. Older Grays like life to run on an even keel with few ups and downs. Young Grays may be withdrawing from life and suppressing their personalities. Grays often have good business ability and tend to work too much.
Dignified and impressive without being showy, Black people want to give the appearance of mystery, but their preference may also indicate a suppression of desires and worldly aims, suggesting hidden depths and inner longings.
