Color my world… red

What your favorite color says about you? (I will be covering other colors soon.)

DO YOU LOVE THE COLOR RED? It just happens to be my favorite color so I wanted to do a little research to see what my most beloved color might have to say about me… and you too if it’s your favorite as well.

I found a few neato-frito articles on the subject and used these as a guide as to what the color red might say about my personality. Considering I’m a fiery-red Aries this may prove interesting.

First of all, there is this stupendous article from Louise Myers: What Does Your Favorite Color Say About You?. It has the most detailed and interesting info you will probably find on this subject anywhere on the net. I used this as well as two other awesome articles, which I’ve listed further down, to draw up a list of intriguing personality traits.

Personality traits:

  • Adventure-seeking – Definitely!
  • Thrill-seeking – The more thrilling the better!
  • Loving/Passionate – I love everything!
  • Driven/Determined – Always!
  • Intimidating – I believe the only person I’ve ever intimidated is myself.
  • Bold – I’m often bold when I’m not busy feeling like running away into a cave or something
  • Impulsive – I screwed up my life a lot when I was younger by being dangerously impulsive. Now I barely want to leave my house.
  • Center of Attention – Yes!
  • Life of the Party – Hell no! I usually feel like I’m the least liked person in the room.

Based in part on this article from Big Think: “Color psychology: What does your favorite color say about your personality?“.

Isn’t this just interesting and fun!?!

  • Need to be right – Always!
  • Optimistic – Almost always!
  • Power-loving – The only person I want power over is me.
  • Controlling/dominate – As with the power thing the only person I aim to control is myself.
  • Critical of others – Not my fault there are so many dumb people in the world! (Ha, ha, just a joke… I actually think most people are better and smarter than me in most every way.)
  • Assertive – I’m much more assertive than I used to be but maybe that is just because I’m getting older and I care less about what people think.
  • Leader – Leading people! I hate leading people! Haven’t you ever read Animal Farm or Lord of the Flies? To a slightly less extreme degree, this how leadership often is. That being said, there are a handful of people out there who are great leaders. Martin Luther King, Jr., Abraham Lincoln and both Roosevelts, for example.
  • Disciplined/Successful – I’m trying to get better at being disciplined. I’ve failed at most things in my life but hopefully that is changing!

Based in part on this article from BrandonGaille: Explanation of the Hartman Color Code Personality Test (My only beef here is that Dr. Taylor Hartman is talked about in the past tense. He’s still alive! Geesh!)

Wow, that was just a ball and I learned so much about myself. Have a great day and don’t forget to notice and appreciate all the wonderful red things in your life!

Sincerely yours, Adora

    1. Publicly, I observe and assess until I get to know others. Privately, I am inquisitive, conversational, and enjoy humor on many fronts. I can chat until the wee hours on the most arcane of topics, but I also crave the alone time for the regenerative aspects. Not so much personality traits, but you get the idea, I’m sure. If it means anything to you, I am an INFJ on the Myers-Briggs.

      1. So I did a free MB test online. Not sure how reliable it is but I too scored INFJ.

        From what you describe I’m amazed that you’re favorite color is red… I would have guessed blue maybe. Either you are an enigma or the color profiles are crap. 😃

        Regardless, I’m even more curious now about why you choose red as your favorite color. Do tell! 🙂

        1. LOL! Perhaps there is crap mixed in with the reality! ‘Red’ is redolent (no pun intended) with life and passion. It also suggests movement, both interiorly and exteriorly. finally, it is the color of blood which is the seat of all life, and I love life.

  1. Positively sizzling a collection, Adora!

    Being a foodie, the red velvet cake captured my attention first – yum! Then there’s the tree, which recalls a Japanese maple at my parents’ house. Best part is, you don’t have to wait for fall for the vibrant crimson display.

    You chose well, selecting things which feature your “soul” color. Bet you were in your glory assembling the article, as are we in reading it.

    My favorite color (If you’re interested. You’re not? Well, I’m going to tell you anyway.) is blue. That changed from green when I was a kid. I wonder what my preferences reveal of my personality. Well, I’ll have to follow your link!

    1. Yes I did enjoy putting this post together… and notice how I listed all the foodie things first… not an accident 😋

      Lucky for you my friend, the next color I plan to cover is blue. It was the favorite color of both of my parents as well as my daughter. For some strange reason it skipped a generation! 😂

      I will look forward to what the color blue has to say about ya’ll. I think I already have some ideas though💡
