Colors That Fit Our Personalities

Updated on March 8, 2010

 While I was in college, I took a speech class and learned about colors and their meanings.  Of course, after we learned about the meanings, we were supposed to write a paper about our colors and how we match them.  It was interesting learning about them and learning more about myself.  I didn't realize how much of a "blue" person I am;  I knew I loved that color and it has been my favorite color for years.  About 85% of my wardrobe is blue.

After I learned everything about blue, I didn't have a problem writing about my personality comparing to "blue".

Below, I wrote a list of the colors and their meanings, and I'm sure you will be very surprised on how well they match your personality.  The colors of what you wear that day also alters your moods.

      Yenajeon, thanks for the message. Pink stands for: caring, tenderness, self-worth and love, acceptance. It also depends on how dark or light the pink you wear or use. It is pretty much the combination of red and white.
