What Your Favorite Color Says About You, According To ‘Color Psychology’

I know that all it takes is a simple Google search about your favorite color for people to get bombarded with dozens of links. One says that blue means you’re a smart person when another site says that blue means you tend to have a lower IQ. (No offense to those who love the color blue, it was just the first color that came to my mind.)

It’s hard to pinpoint which color means what. Hopefully, this research will put your mind at ease.

There is indeed something called “color psychology,” which focuses on human behavior but not in the way that you may have thought. Color psychology often pertains to studying how color can affect human behavior. For example, in 2008, The Seattle Times reported that Glasgow, Scotland introduced blue streetlamps and the effect significantly brought down crime rates. Professor Tsuneo Suzuki at Keio University said, “There are a number of pieces of data to prove blue has a calming effect upon people.”

Though, there are some agreed upon personality traits with each color. For example, those who love red are bolder people. You’re more extroverted and want to live life to the fullest. Not to mention, scientific studies have proved that people are more attracted to the color.

Those who love blue are easier to get along with and tend to be more reliable.

If you lean towards green, you care quite a bit about what people think about you. You tend to want wealth more than others and a good social standing among your friends. 

If orange is your jam then you’re probably really friendly and easy to get along with. You’re good-natured and more social than others.
