In my colour class back in December, we discussed the psychology of colour. My teacher asked each of us to tell the class what our most favourite and least favourite colours are and why. I was the only one whose favourite colour is purple.
My least favourite colour is yellow. You can read about why here.
Purple is one girl’s least favourite colour. She’s from Colombia, and she said that it reminds her of death because the inside of a casket is often purple. Eeeek!!!
One girl loves light petal pink because it’s soothing and calm.
Meanwhile, the lone guy on our class said pink is his least favourite colour. But not because he’s a guy — it’s because he painted a room pink once and he felt like the pink was attacking him!!
The most popular colour was red, in particular cherry red.
According to an article we read in class, women prefer blue-based reds, while men prefer yellow-based reds. So if a woman wants to turn on a man, she should wear a yellow-based red lipstick.
Black was also a popular choice, mainly because wearing black makes you look slimmer. Victoria Beckham is proof that only eating celery and lettuce can make you look slimmer too — but where’s the fun in that?!
The most interesting response about a least favourite colour came from Erica. She said that there’s no colour that she doesn’t like. She thinks that every colour is beautiful, and it’s all about how a colour is used and the other colours around it, and not what a colour is.
