What we wear or what colours we choose can reflect on how we are perceived by others. How does this impact on us? is this conscious behavior? Do we really get judged on the colours we wear or are we always making a colour statement subconscious or not?
“Your personality color does not have to be one you wear all the time; it is usually your favorite, the color that excites you the most and makes you feel alive when you see it.
That being said, you are often drawn to your personality color for clothing and home decorating. It is often a predominant color in your aura.”
In regards to looking at this from a psychology point of view it is very prominent that there is a lot of truth to be said about this. I am going to investigate to see if it adds up for me on a personal level or is it just a generalized view point?
“If your personality color is pink you have a deep need to be accepted and loved unconditionally.”
I am always torn between pink and grey. But saying this I am open to so many colours, if I look though my mass clothes collection, I must own an element of every colour in some kind of way. I am going to look deeper into these and see what they are saying and come to my own conclusion and maybe answer some of my questions that got me thinking on this subject matter.
“With gray as your favorite color, you are the middle of the road type, cool, conserved, composed and reliable. You tend to conform just to keep the peace.”
PINK- Looking at this from three points favorite colour/Need/Dislike
I would not overly say this is my favorite colour of all time but contained in the list I am relating to;
“With a personality color 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.”
“The challenge for you is to become more self-reliant and to learn to love yourself, then love and acceptance will be returned to you multiplied.”
“You have unresolved emotional problems from your childhood with either your mother or father.”
These three quotes without going into detail are scarily accurate within my life. So how about grey does elements of this fit to?
GREY- Looking at this from three points favorite colour/Need/Dislike
“You are a hard worker who just gets on with the job that has to be done – you tend to be committed and loyal to your work whatever it may be.”
“If you love gray, you are trying to protect yourself from the chaotic outside world, even to the point of isolating yourself from others, leaving you with the feeling that you don’t really fit in or belong anywhere.”
“You like to be in control of your emotions and avoid experiencing emotional pain by shutting off from your emotions.”
Maybe there is more truth to this than I thought? But I still don’t see that this can be a clear indicator to personality alone. I understand that colours can mean different things, wearing bold and bright colours can indicate confidence for example- I know for me personally I do wear bold statement clothes at times but I hate the attention it attracts I am wearing as I like it. I am going to look into this subject matter in more detail and speak to people on what colour they believe reflects there personality and if what they wear is making a point on reflecting how they are feeling?
