Believe it or not, the color says a lot about you and if you don’t believe me just look in your closet. What colors are most prominent in your wardrobe? What is your favorite color?
A few example of color personalities are as follows:
Red is a power color and wearers are ambitious and driven.
Blue is a more passive color. If blue is your favorite color chances are you are principled and peaceful.
Green signifies a need for security, need to love and be loved.
Yellow personalities tend to be perfectionist and dreamers.
Brown people enjoy the simple life and close friends, and loving relationships are essential
No matter what your color personality, there are two colors you should consider if you want to succeed in every aspect of your life, black, and pink.
Leading psychologist all agree that there is a reason why people dress in black. For one thing, black implies power, self-assurances, and independence.
Black also gives off the aura of sophistication and dignity as well as affluence and success.
If your favorite color is black, you might have the following traits as taken from ‘the black personality’ chart:
- Prestige and power are important to you.
- You are probably strong-willed and independent.
- You like to be in control of people and situations.
- You might be guarded with your emotions.
- You may be rebelling against society and authority.
If you’re looking for love, wearing black on a first date will make a positive impression according to an article by Theresa DiDonato, Ph. D from Psychology Today.
"The effect of wearing black may not only be in the eye of the beholder but the wearer," said DiDonato.
"How you feel in clothing may be half the story when it comes to how people perceive you." Because wearing black projects confidence and power, your date will feel safe and secure.
Next time you reach for the black, consider incorporating other hues to accent your outfit.
Personally, I like to wear a hot pink or a fire engine red shirt when dressing in a black suit.
It makes me feel powerful yet approachable. Besides adding a punch of color, it makes my otherwise dull outfit pop and stand out from the crowd.
There is nothing wrong with going monochromatic, in fact, it makes a statement. Just avoid doing it in an office setting or at a job interview as you will appear aloof and inaccessible.
