Now consider how subjective and similiar sounding are some of these descriptions. Are they realistic? Do you identify with any of the personality traits that are prescribed through the colour preference of when you buy a car. I find that i have more than one favourite colour and more than one colour describes my personality. Consider the origin in meaning behinds these colours in addition to what colour you wear the most or what colour you are most likely to be attracted to when shopping for cloths. As there seems to be a lot of fashion colour pyschology and house design wall paint psychology trends going around. Personally i am on the one hand sceptical about such colour preferences defines ones personality because from studying personality psychology i've come to the conclusion that personality traits are subjective. For this seem the to me the reason why borderline personlity disorders is one of the hardest mental disorders to diagnose and why there is so much confusion about what it actually is. While on the other i really identify with some of these colour coded descriptions and what they have to say about an individual's personality through their colour preferences. For most people i know their favouritie colour does personify some parts of their personlity to a certain extent.
