Color Personality

Saw this Color Personality quiz over at Colour Me Happy. It's supposed to determine what colors are around you most, and theoretically what colors you should dress in and decorate in (if you're in a rut or lost). I am a colour whoure (yes that's right), so I jumped right on it.

1. What's the first color you see in the morning?
Black: The color of my curtains


2. What color are your eyes?
Orangey Brown (see blog header)


3. What color do you wear the most?
Purple


Me in NYC last year

4. What color do you never wear?
Oatmeal



5. What color do you wear when you want to feel sexy?
Black



6. What color gets you the most compliments?
Blue



7. What color is your lipstick?
Plum Burgundy (sheer-ish though)


8. What color was your living room when you were growing up?
Forest Green


9. What color was your bedroom when you were growing up?
Purple


Yes I had one of these, LAWD. It was soothing though.

10. What color are your sheets?
White (ahhh so relaxing, like sleeping in a cloud)


11. What color was your favorite crayon as a child?
Green (it was always so crisp)


12. What color is your car?
Plum
Not this bright, more like a really deep midnight purple.

13. What color was your prom dress?
Orange


14. What's your favorite gemstone?
Opal (Would you expect anything other from a unicorn descendant?)



15. What is your favorite flower?
Blue Hydrangeas


16. What color makes you happiest?
Infinity Blue


Detroit airport tunnel, taken by me.

17. What color depresses you?
Muddy Brown


I also hate chocolate. The taste, the smell, BARF!

18. What color calms you?
Periwinkle



19. What color makes you grind your teeth?
Pepto Pink



20. What color would you like to try, but are scared to?
Acid Green



So, apparently your color personality are the colors that show up most frequently. To get to this, I edited out colors from the questions that don't have to do with everyday life and choices, or colors from questions with a negative, dislikey focus. So I eliminated questions 2 (can't choose your eye color), 4, 8 (had no control over living room color growing up), 11 (because I don't recall having a favorite crayon color; I just think back and am like hmm, green was kind of nice...yeah, that's the ticket!), 13 (one time choice), 17, and 19. This basically left me with variations of purple and blue as my color personality, not too surprising! To see this illustrated, I went to Flickr. Me eliminations make more sense because you can only pick up to 10 colors, so if you try this, keep in mind what colors surround you the most in your life in regards to the questions and edit out the others.

Here is the full link to my supposed color personality. *glances at my blog colors* Look familiar? Not too surprising, although I wouldn't decorate according to that color scheme. The clothes I am drawn to are usually those colors though.

Try it for yourself and let me know when you do so I can come see! Colors give me LIFE.
