Color and Our Personalities

The colors of clothing we choose to wear, the colors we use to decorate our homes, and even the colors of food that we choose to eat are all examples of how colors reflect who we are. The color of clothes people choose to wear seem to give a slight personality profile of them. For instance, a person wearing a red T-shirt would probably be more likely to take risks and be adventurous, wereas a person wearing a white T-shirt would be more reserved and wouldn't want to be the center of attention.

Out of curiousity, I posted a poll on my website asking males the color of bra they would most like to see on an attractive woman. Out of the colors black, white, and red, sixty-five percent voted that they would rather see an attractive woman wearing a black bra. This is yet another example of how color affects our emotions.

Black is a mysterious, sexual color (Psychology of Color). Therefore it arouses the male more than the colors red and white, which can be used to represent the emotions of sensuality (red) and purity (white).

The color black is very mysterious and dominate. I wear black clothes a lot because it makes me feel sophisticated, and prevailing. It's my "power" color. I would most likely wear black clothes to an important meeting or to a formal party. It is also "slimming", which gives me more confidence. Wearers of black are often strong-willed, opinionated, disciplined, and independent (Psychology of Colors). Men admire these qualities in women and find them sexy. That is why the majority of the men who participated in my poll chose the color black as the bra color that they would most like to see on an attractive female.
