Colorscope: What Do Your Favorite Colors Say About You?

August 17, 2011
I recently came across this fun little color chart. And if you know me, you know I LOVE charts. Throw in beautiful colors and I’m instantly captivated! Actually, this Colorscope chart was developed by Paper Source, an incredible resource for all things paper related. I don't know about you, but I've always felt that a person’s favorite colors revealed something interesting about them, and so that's why I can so appreciate this lovely color chart.



Try it out! The idea is that the colors you are most attracted to will describe your personality. Simply pick out your two favorites (mine, at the moment, are Strawberry and Fig) and read what they tell you about yourself.



I have to admit I'm seriously blown away by how my favorites really speak to who I am. Start by just focusing on the colors (don’t read the descriptions yet!). What color(s) jump out at you?



Are you loving this peacock shade? Or maybe you're more drawn to bluebell?



What about shades of pink?



Or even shades of orange? I personally love this fig color.



Are you a red girl at heart? Or maybe strawberry catches your eye?



Or maybe you're the kind of person who likes to surround yourself with lovely neutrals such as these.



One thing is for sure, it's hard to narrow down a favorite isn't it? So just go with your gut. What colors instantly grab you?



Picked out your favorite colors yet? Okay, now see if the description matches your personality? So tell me, what colors were you instantly drawn to? And were the descriptions even remotely close to your personality? I'd love to hear about whether or not there was any truth here! I seriously love color charts like this!

My gravitation to red has never described who I really am. I don't care, I embrace it anyway. A very interesting post you did up today. Have always loved these color me/and or my house beautiful type projects.

Koru Kate said...

I had a tough time choosing my two colors! One described me well, the other not so much. Maybe I didn't make the right color choice. Very cool though.

Anna of IHOD said...

Chrissy,
How was your son's birthday?! I hope it was special for both of you!

This has to be spot on! Peacock, Fushia, and Cement is what I was drawn to and they are pretty spot on for me! LOL!

Meagan said...

Moss was my "instinct color" and was practically a perfect description! Haha. Fig and paper bag were next, solidifying it. This is fun. :) Thanks for sharing! I love your blog!

Tamra {walkswithBella} said...

Awesome, I was immediately drawn to black. It is pretty on point!

The problem with this exercise is limiting oneself to just TWO of these yummy colors. Thank you for sharing this.
FYI: At an illustration workshop we were told that scientists have discovered that we respond to color in the same brain regions as the place we feel affection and love. There's an actually physical response to colors we like.

chandra ~ oh lovely day said...

I'm so excited that paper source has another yellow besides curry now- the sunshine is my new favorite, but it doesn't describe me at all...totally responsible and not at all spontaneous :)

Hannah {Culture Connoisseur} said...

Sounds about right! I picked persimmon and chocolate. Pretty colors! This was a fun post. :)

hailey giles said...

My favorite color is periwinkle, which is not on here. Although, bluebell is the closest, and I would say that the description of that one fits me quite well!

I can never decide on just one color! I was immediately attracted to the Lake, Night and Beet colors! Particularly the Lake and Beet sound alot like me (aside from the fact that I dont consider myself really attractive, although I do think I have beautiful expressive eyes) I do consider my empathy and love for fellow humans one of my greatest assets :)

Sumthing Wong said...

I love Bluebell, but Lake describes me the best, so maybe that is my favorite color?

CandyPerfumeGirl said...

I really love the sunshine, peacock, plum fuchsia, blossom, poppy, papaya, fig, straberry, persimmon and red...just spontaneously they draw me in...i literally feel a bit happier when i see them.

Liz said...

I am a black wearer and I cannot stand color or patterns.This is a real problem for me and no matter how hard I try I gravitate to black. I am uncomfortable in cl othing with color and I can remember my first home ed class. We made blouses and I chose black and it has been that way for 70 years. I might sound boring and yes I do accessories but it would be so interesting why I am so drawn to black.
