We are all unique individuals with no two people being the same, however much research has revealed that there is a link between colours we are drawn to and particular personality traits. In fact some psychologists use this research to help them get more information about their patients.
While your favourite colour can change depending on your age or stage of life, what is your favourite colour right now? Here’s some information on what your favourite colour says about you:-

Red personalities are achievers, unafraid to take risks with endless amounts of energy. People who like red are passionate about life, competitive, daring and assertive. They enjoy trying new things and experiences, routine makes them crazy.
If you don’t like red: It may be that the intensity and aggression of red is too much for you to handle at this point in your life.

Soft pink personalities are friendly, gentle, refined and peace loving. Those drawn to the brighter pinks are more ambitious, energetic and passionate.
If you dislike pink: You find the innocence and sweetness a bit irritating but secretly long for passion.

They have a love of life that makes them attractive to others, but their impulsive and overactive personalities, combined with their desire to always do the right thing, can leave an orange personality feeling depleted. Their “play hard, work hard” personality can make them difficult partners to live with. Orange people often need to balance their priorities.
If you dislike orange: You are not an extrovert or a big party goer. You prefer a small circle of friends and once you make friends you stay friends for life.

They have a clear sense of purpose and direction and are able to handle difficult situations without panicking. People who love turquoise are usually able to make decisions easily and with clarity.

They project a non threatening energy, making people feel comfortable in their presence. Blue people are cautious when making decisions and will think something through carefully before making a decision. They are social but prefer to stick to a small close circle of friends. Blue people can become self absorbed which may cause a loss in confidence and ability to cope in certain situations. They seek order in their life and prefer working within a structure.
People who dislike blue may just be unhappy with where they are at the moment – they don’t like monotony and long for excitement.

They are creative and open-minded and like to express themselves in an artistic and aesthetic way. The purple personality is also practical and grounded, this could be the mixture of red and blue in this colour. They are dignified and gracious, willing to help others. They can be found in the medical profession or clergy. Their creativity makes them great leaders and teachers because they provide more than just facts and figures, they also make gifted poets, painters and musicians.
