  • Hey, Psych2Goers, and welcome back to another video.

  • Thank you so much for all of the love and support

  • that you've given us,

  • enabling us to make yet another exploration

  • into everyday psychology.

  • Today let's delve into the colorful world

  • of color psychology.

  • Let's begin.

  • What is your favorite color?

  • This is a question that tops your childhood FAQs, right?

  • The uniqueness of each human's mind

  • makes it almost impossible to have a set of rules

  • that applies to everyone's choice.

  • Preferences you might have

  • can be linked to your overall behavior.

  • But did you know the characteristics of your personality

  • can be based on what your favorite color is?

  • Here are your favorites

  • and what they say about your personality.

  • One, black.

  • Black is a color to be taken seriously.

  • People whose favorite color is black

  • look for power and control.

  • According to a study in 2018,

  • they are perceived as serious, almost intimidating.

  • You wanna be seen by your internal qualities

  • rather than your outward appearance

  • by wearing black clothing.

  • It personifies your independent and mysterious nature

  • as stated in a study by PAC in 2020.

  • If your favorite color is black,

  • others view you as a private person

  • who masks their emotions.

  • You only share your thoughts and feelings

  • with close friends and relative.

  • Two, white.

  • Pet claims that the color white has a close relation

  • with purity, birth, and innocence.

  • The study by Meyers in 2018

  • found people who favor white are very organized,

  • independent, and logical in the way they solve problems.

  • You are known to be optimistic

  • and focused on the bright side of life.

  • You strive to find peace,

  • but might come off as uptight and self-righteous

  • which results in decreased popularity

  • within your circle of friends.

  • Your nature can be condescending at times,

  • which does more harm than good, oopsy-daisy!

  • Three, red.

  • The color red is closely related to passion,

  • desire, and aggression.

  • Uh! You are outgoing and adventurous.

  • You enjoy being the center of attention

  • and have very intense feelings.

  • You are not afraid of letting others know

  • about your feelings, whether they're good or...

  • (clears throat) bad.

  • Speak less do more is your motto.

  • And you have a very action-oriented style in life.

  • As a natural born leader,

  • you are respected by people easily.

  • Four, blue.

  • The color blue symbolizes peace and tranquility,

  • and is the most popular color.

  • If your favorite color is blue,

  • you are reliable, calm, and loyal.

  • Your level headedness allows you to operate under pressure.

  • Finding inner peace and absolute truth

  • is of the essence of you.

  • You live life according to your ideals and beliefs.

  • A study by Meyers in 2018 states

  • that you find fulfillment in being of service

  • by thinking about others

  • and putting their needs before your own.

  • But a word of caution according to the study,

  • self-destructive behavior can be developed

  • when you find expectations

  • and outperforming yourself too hard to handle.

  • Five, green.

  • Is green your favorite color?

  • If so, you have strong time management skills

  • due to your ability to quickly prioritize.

  • You are open-minded and curious.

  • Always looking to learn new things

  • and to become more knowledgeable.

  • They stand their ground on their opinions

  • and do not believe anyone or anything easily.

  • However, if they do, they will do it very strongly.

  • The study states that the color green represents nature,

  • good luck, and fertility.

  • On the other hand, it also represents jealousy and greed.

  • People whose favorite color is green

  • consider their reputation

  • than the way society perceives them as very important

  • and lead an active public life.

  • Six, yellow.

  • Does the word yellow bring to mind,

  • the sun on a summer afternoon,

  • or maybe that egg yolk on your plate

  • during breakfast on your favorite holiday?

  • Yellow is the color of happiness, sunshine, and laughter.

  • When your favorite color is yellow,

  • you love to share with others

  • but also have a focus on expressing your individuality.

  • You are very lighthearted and have a very positive outlook

  • but tend to go overboard with your optimism.

  • Whoops, you are seldom sad.

  • When it happens, you can be in that mood for several days.

  • A study found such people are spontaneous

  • and willing to take action,

  • giving them an advantage over people who are indecisive.

  • Seven, orange.

  • Would you describe yourself as highly productive?

  • Do you like to work and get things done fast?

  • Chances are your favorite color must be orange then, right?

  • This color represents energy, warmth and enthusiasm.

  • It gives you a party-like vibe, doesn't it?

  • People whose favorite color is orange like to socialize.

  • You aim to be accepted and respected

  • in a group of people.

  • Just like people who favor yellow, you are very optimistic,

  • always expecting wonderful things to happen.

  • You have a black and white perspective on life.

  • Either going after something with everything you have

  • or not going after it at all.

  • Eight, purple.

  • Do you remember the color

  • of Rapunzel's royal flag entangled?

  • Purple is the color associated with power, royalty,

  • spirituality and prestige.

  • Because back in the day,

  • only monarchs and nobility could afford purple clothing.

  • So yeah, you guessed it right,

  • the color of the flag entangled was also purple.

  • People whose favorite colors purple are helpful to others,

  • but requires emotional security in their lives.

  • You are creative and love unique things,

  • wanting to stand out from the group,

  • known as unpredictable,

  • dealing with you can be either very easy

  • or extremely difficult.

  • Having a balance of both charisma and cool exterior

  • makes climbing to the top all the easier.

  • Nine, pink.

  • Did you just think of the Pink Panther?

  • The color pink symbolizes femininity, love, playfulness,

  • and to a certain extent, immaturity,

  • claimed a study in 2020.

  • People whose favorite color is pink

  • express themselves very well and believe in being loved

  • and accepted unconditionally.

  • You prioritize love, family, and kindness

  • above everything else.

  • You are very compassionate to those closest to you

  • and are very dependable when others need emotional support.

  • This color is the most calming and sedative one,

  • which is why some institutes paint their walls pink

  • to reduce aggression.

  • 10, gray.

  • Gray is associated with balance,

  • being neither dark nor light.

  • People whose favorite color is gray

  • usually prefer not to be the center of attention.

  • You are known as very mature,

  • but are difficult to characterize

  • due to the nature of the color.

  • Your taste is very modern and sophisticated.

  • You are naturally fair and can see problems objectively

  • without letting personal feelings affect the decisions made.

  • And 11, brown.

  • Is your favorite color

  • the same color as chocolate and coffee?

  • Brown like green, is a color connected to life, growth,

  • and the color of the earth.

  • Brown in color psychology is a color of reliability,

  • loyalty, and sincerity.

  • It relates to maturity and being sensible.

  • So if you're into brown, you're down to earth, practical,

  • straight-talking and always to the point.

  • Not only that, you have a keen sense of duty

  • and responsibility,

  • you take your obligations very seriously.
