I almost always have bruises. It’s a common thing when you’re a klutz and bruise easily. I’m used to them and, if you ask my mom, my choice in favorite colors is because I’m so used to them.
My favorite colors are blue, black, and purple. Now, if you want to get specific, my favorite blue is steel blue. And because I do want to get specific, I made a fun little rippled oval target to show you my colors:
Aren’t they beautiful?!
Well, the point of this is that I found an article that is supposed to tell you what you favorite color says about you. I thought it was interesting and decided to share. Oddly enough – well, perhaps not so odd considering how these things are designed to apply to as many people as possible, but still – oddly enough, the three together seem to do a fairly decent job of describing the basics.
Blue: Soft, soothing, compassionate and caring, Blue is the color of deliberation and introspection, conservatism and duty. Patient, persevering, conscientious, sensitive and self-controlled, Blues like to be admired for their steady character and wisdom. They are faithful, but are often worriers with somewhat inflexible beliefs and can be too cautious, and suspicious of flamboyant behavior.
Blue is my first choice in favorite colors. This description seems pretty spot-on. I am definitely a worrier. Too much so in some cases, and unless I have a very good reason to change the things that I believe in, no matter how unusual the belief may be, I will not change. I don’t like to be around people who crave attention so much that they will do almost anything because that seems to imply that they either have something to prove or something to hide. Possibly both, but neither are good. Also, it takes a lot before I will give up on someone. In fact, I’ve finally given up on one person ever becoming a decent human being again after they used me to prove themselves to someone else. I don’t really think that I’m all that compassionate, but maybe I am. I do know that if someone gave me the button that would remove everyone that I felt the world could do without, I would push it and I wouldn’t feel any remorse. There would be a drastic decrease in the human population, and some of the missing people would be family and people who possibly consider themselves my friends, but one thing is for certain, those left will certainly be more intelligent that the average person you would encounter and they certainly wouldn’t tick me off the way so many people do. I don’t really care all that much if I’m admired at all, but if I’m going to be admired, I would definitely prefer that it be for something substantial and good.
Black: Dignified and impressive without being showy, Black people want to give the appearance of mystery, but their preference may also indicate a suppression of desires and worldly aims, suggesting hidden depths and inner longings.
Second on my list is black. Black is my preferred clothing choice, mostly because it usually isn’t showy. I don’t care so much about wanting to “give the appearance of mystery,” but I am apparently fairly difficult to figure out in spite of my being a very straightforward person. I also tend to not care at all what other people think about me, which seems to give me a bit of mystery on some level. Most people can’t comprehend that I really don’t care and that I’m not just saying it. I do suppress some desires, mostly those that would land me in jail such as dismembering the idiots who make up the vast majority of the people I encounter, but I’m a fairly selfish person in some instances so I don’t suppress much.
Purple: Purples are highly individual, fastidious, witty and sensitive, with a strong desire to be unique and different. Temperamental, expansive and artistic, a Purple person may become aloof and sarcastic when misunderstood. If you chose Purple, you tend to be unconventional, tolerant and dignified, likely to achieve positions of authority.
Purple comes in last, but it’s still an amazing color. Now, the description for purple is only applicable when taken with the other two. Alone, it does very little to describe me. Yes, I’m tempermental, but I keep that under control except when you manage to really anger me. Yes, I am unconventional, but mostly because I seem to have been born in the wrong century. I’m a very conservative person and a lot of my views are probably better suited towards the times of lords, ladies, knights, and castles. I do have the habit of being very sarcastic and pulling away when I’m not being understood.
So, altogether, the three colors do a good job of describing me, but not so much when you take them alone.
