We able to manipulate our feelings to others, so we can move forward and forget those burdens in the meantime. #LeaveMeAlone #DontWorryImOkay

In my opinion, color psychology is not accurate for telling people of who they are based on what we see and feel to them. Creating false judgment cannot guarantee to identify someone’s characteristics. Let’s start by judging ourselves and focus on the things that matter to us. We have different characteristics that make us stand out. Picking our favorite color doesn’t mean to our characters. Through this color psychology, we can identify which color is best for you.

In this modern time, society is now open to any colors and differences because of our changing times that being unique is now okay and acceptable. Diversity is the main reason why we can move forward without hesitation and fear. If you’re different today, you are awesome!

    I love these color personality! I took a color personality test before and it pointed me to green! Well, maybe because green is the color of nature that it depicts calmness and balance. I admire this color as well but I am into purple and black. Well, I guess, we change in the long and so does our color preference… =)

    I have a huge collection of colored pens hanging around the house. I am a sucker of colors because I love them. I used to have a color wheel palette, which I have gotten from buying a huge amount of paint during the construction of our house here in Cebu. But I lost it somewhere. I tried looking for one but they are quite expensive. Aldrin, you’re a witness of my sucker of color pens. Hahaha. I love this article. I love reading it. I am hoping to have more of like this in the future since I can’t draw. So, I turn my attention to color pairing to salvage my unskillful self. If you’re wondering why my blog logos have colors red, blue and black, well, that explains everything. They have meanings and I stick to them for my goals in writing.
