BLACK
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.
 
WHITE
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.

RED
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.
 
MAROON: 
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.
 
PINK
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.
 
PURPLE
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.
 
BROWN
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.
 
ORANGE :
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.
 
YELLOW :
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.
 
GREEN:
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.
 
BLUE:
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.
 
Blue-Green:
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.
 
Turquoise:
Complex, imaginative and original, Turquoise people drive themselves hard and may be in a state of turmoil under their outwardly cool exterior.
 
Lavender:
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.
 
Gray:
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.
 
Black:
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.
 
According to the Feng shui, colours are great source of help in improving one's own life.
