Does someone's favorite color say something about their personality?

My favorite color is blue and I associate many things with the color blue. The story to my liking the color blue is that my brother liked green and I liked blue as a child. I personally get confused when people do not have a favorite color, for it is like they have no color loyalty. From childhood on, me and my brother's opposite colors made us like different things, so as to not copy each other. This, in turn might have lead to me being competitive and prideful in most things. I seldom sport the color green, as my true pride comes in the color blue. =) Do you have an explanation for your favorite color and how it shapes your personality?

None at all. But my fav color is white! White projects purity, cleanliness, and neutrality. Though for other people white is boring, it's quite affects us mentally and physically. It enables me from fresh beginnings. Also encourages me to clear clutter or obstacles. Well, blue is the overwhelming "favorite color." It is seen as trustworthy, dependable and committed. Blue is cool!

I'm glad that white suits you nicely. I think white looks cool, especially when martial artists where white! Thanks! Although blue is an overwhelming favorite color I feel that green is always sneaking up behind the blues. I guess I have to work more on being trustworthy, dependable, and committed, so that I can live up the color blue. =)

My favorite color is black. I don't really know if it has something to do with the shape of personality. Since my favorite color is black, that doesn't mean that I'm a bad person or a person who likes to do bad stuff. Happy mylotting and God Bless!

Okay maybe sometimes color does not relate to someone's personality. You should really look at a color spectrum book and see what the color black says about your personality. You might be surprised what you find in there. Happy Mylotting and God Bless you as well! =)

Yes, I think that a persons choice of color is indicative of their personality or some aspect of their character. I've read books about color and how colors have vibrations. In fact I read a mylot writing about a child who related people to colors. I can understand that because colors have a certain kind of character or emotion to them. I use to relate colors to school subjects. Science was yellow and English was blue. My favorite color is blue. I went through some changes as adults and I started liking other colors but I have recently returned to my favorite color and my second favorite color was green. When I would meet someone else who liked blue I would feel as if we had something in common; something more than the color itself. I felt as if we understood something similar about life.

That was a wonderful explanation. I think that deserves a best response, even though not many people have answered this post yet. It is fascinating how you have read so much about favorite colors My favorite color is blue too. Do you find a connection with me as well? Something beyond the color? Enlighten me, tell me what it is . I would like to know. The only thing I do not agree with is that I feel that green and blue do not go together. This is because of my bias against green though, so that is solely my own opinion. Even though you have changed your colors, you have come back to your true color.

that is a clichè that a lot of people believe, specially because the meaning of the colors change a lot between culture, people cant compare meanings in this situation but what they are use to...

That is true that colors mean something different for different cultures. I just want to know what the color means specifically to you. I'm not saying there is any right or wrong answer.

Yes, I believed that one's favorite color has something to say about personality. Like me, my favorite color is PINK which really reflected my personality and attitude. I like peace, serenity and simplicity. Pink symbolizes purity, innocence and simple mindedness. I like a very relax atmosphere and environment, I followed a simple lifestyle and I love my innocence.hehehe. I am reserved and quiet, like a Pink color which epitomizes beauty, innocence and quietness, I am also a great admirer of modesty and innocence.

That's funny I always thought people who wore pink were high maintenance. Maybe that was a misconception on my part. Or maybe that just describes people in the states. That's cool how you correspond your favorite color with your personality. I hope you stay innocent. =)

That's interesting how you wear effervescent clothing but you like dark colors. I am not a color expert so I will not know how to decipher your favorite colors with your personality. Partying is cool. Maybe we ever meet we can party together someday. =)

yes some time. and mostly when you choose your clothes. the reasons are very simple. not a color which could suit on a person will also suit on another. but if this suits better then no problem but if this is not. it make a negative appearance of the personality.
