Your Favorite Color Reveals Much About Your Personality, According to Color Psychology

We all have that one go-to color, which can reveal a lot about who we are as a person.

The world is full of different colors, yet only a few colors resonate with our personality. Some colors make us feel lighter and put us in a better mood, while a few can make us gloomy. How many of us have tried to understand why? Our liking towards a particular color has something to do with our psychology. According to Betterhelp.com, the colors we like are linked to our unique personality. Researchers have now started exploring more on color psychology. Psychology Today also explains how certain traits have been linked to people's preferences for certain colors.

For example, we often associate shades of blue, green, and purple to a sense of calm and relaxation. These colors are known to make people feel comfortable and at ease. On the other hand, bright colors such as orange and yellow are said to reflect vibrancy and high energy. Here is what your favorite color may say about you.
