When people ask me “what’s your favourite colour?”  I don’t seem to find it as easy to answer as I did when I was a kid.  Then it was just a case of being a boy, so it has to be blue, the same as if you were a girl it was pink or purple.  Now, however, I look at colours in a completely different light, (or dark).  Colours are so much more than just colours associated with your identity.

But what’s really in a colour?  Do the colours we choose, define us?  Here’s what Psychologists think, according to psychologytoday.com.  See if you agree, leave your opinion.

Black. People who choose black as their favourite colour are often artistic and sensitive.  While these people aren’t introverts, they are careful with the details of their lives and do not share easily with others.

White. People who like white are often organized and logical and don’t have a great deal of clutter in their lives.

Red. Those who love red live life to the fullest and are tenacious and determined in their endeavours.

Blue. If blue is your favourite colour you love harmony, are reliable, sensitive and always make an effort to think of others.  You like to keep things clean and tidy and feel that stability is the most important aspect of life.

Green. Those who love the colour green are often affectionate, loyal and frank.  Green lovers are also aware of what others think of them and consider their reputation very important.

Yellow. You enjoy learning and sharing your knowledge with others.  Finding happiness comes easily to you and others would compare you to sunshine.

Purple. You are artistic and unique.  You have a great respect for people but at times can be arrogant.

Brown. You are a good friend and try your hardest to be reliable and dependable.  Flashy objects are not something you desire; you just want a stable life.

I guess my favourite colour is rainbow, because there are bits of everything in me.  To be quite honest, like writing it depends on the context.  What is beautiful in one painting or picture might not appeal to me in the slightest in another setting.

I am an artist and I love it. What do I have to do to live from what I love? I'm not dying or cutting me bloody ear off, that's for sure.
