What Color Is Your Personality?

Colors fill our surroundings, and colors influence our moods and emotions. Way back in 1940, Max Luscher confirmed that colors truly affect emotions differently, such as, blue calms, red excites and black saddens. He also claimed that different colors can represent different behaviors. For instance, the color you choose represents your current emotional status. Selecting the same color over and over indicates how you handle the world around you.

An objects color is its characteristic and reflects certain frequencies of light wavelengths. There are, also, specific cells in the retina of eyes. Three major pigments are contained within the retina; blue, green and yellow. These cells collect related information from your environment and in turn, transmit that to your primary visual cortex where it is processed and understood. It is when these cells begin to malfunction that color blindness appears.
