A few days ago this website caught my attention:
Something triggered me to take a look at it. What do colors tell us? What does your favorite color say about your personality? Sure I know colors tell us a lot, but I never really got into it.
It got me thinking. My favorite color is blue and I always associate that color with air, water, calmness, space, coolness. But I never thought about what my favorite color tells about my personality.
Curious, but also sceptical, I clicked on the link and started reading… Sceptical, cause what would the color blue say about my personality? Maybe it would’t match at all with who I am.
First thing to notice was that they made a difference between blue, indigo and turquoise.
“Well…that’s a bit of a problem” I thought, cause generally my favorite color is blue, but sometimes there are periods when I like turquoise more than I like blue…
Which one to read first??
Started with turquoise… My scepticism was confirmed by what I read…most of it didn’t match with who I am. However there were a few things that I could relate to and that was enough to trigger me to read about the color blue.
With a bigger dose of scepticism, but still curious I started reading chapter “blue”.
Gone was my scepticism….vanished into thin air…. I was surprised reading it.
“How do they know all this about me??” was my first thought.
I could so relate to what was written. There only was one thing I couldn’t relate to, but the rest was so true… Intrigued I went on reading about my favorite color.
I could recognise my good sides, but even more could recognise my bad sides
Some things really made me laugh, because I could so relate to it.
People who like blue are inflexible, not spontaneous, not impulsive and stubborn. Well…yes…that’s true, I always think before I speak or act, unless I got a few glasses of wine or have a huge lack of sleep.
And yes…I’m inflexible….I don’t like changes, I rather stay in my comfort zone. Besides that, I’m a control freak, I don’t like surprises and ooooh I’m so stubborn! There are plenty of examples that will prove how stubborn I am.
What also made me laugh was reading that blue people don’t like to have discord or conflict in their lives, but that they are often the cause of conflict with others because they can be quite manipulative…
I indeed recall situations in which I have been the cause of discord between people. When I’m being asked to give my opinion I can be pretty persuasive….and that indeed often leads to discussion or discord between others.
Now I’m only mentioning some bad sides, but I also know I do have some good sides.
You can read all about it here:
( 🙂 very recognisable for the people who know me…)
One thing is for sure…reading about my favorite color intrigued me and it kept me busy for a while.
I never got into the meaning of colors and never read about what your favorite color tells about your personality. I was sceptical, but not anymore.
No blog without music so I’ll end this blog with a song…
“When the stars go blue” by Ryan Adams
The song has nothing to do with this blog btw. I just like stars, I like blue and I love this song 😉
