Dewey Sadka, author of “The Dewey Color System,” has studied the influence of colors for over 20 years, and he says the powerful link between your favorite hue and your personality traits is astounding.
Green — You’re strong-willed and prefer to find solutions to problems on your own. This firm belief in self-reliance is something you pass on to your kids, along with an enduring faith in their own abilities. You’re able to empathize with others, lending a nonjudgemental ear when needed.
Red — You’re like the Energizer Bunny — a ball of fire who seldom slows down. Reds are leaders with a large circle of friends, and co-workers also look to you for guidance. You have high standards for your kids, but they appreciate your honest interest and sense of fun, too.
Blue — You’re as cool and calm as your favorite color, and your laid-back sensibility works well in crisis situations. You surround yourself with beautiful objects, many of which you created yourself. Fearless when obstacles are in your path, you determinedly meet your highest goals.
Gray — You’re gentle soft-spoken, self-possessed and extremely comfortable in your own skin. You’re also bright as a penny, and people are drawn to your witty intellect. But you’re no smart aleck, preferring to work as a long term player, rather than being the boss.
Purple — You’re a unique individual with a strong creative bend a taste for bold fashions. Your pals love to join you on shopping sprees because you encourage them to break out of the mold. You’re also quite intuitive, instinctively saying the right thing at the right time.
Yellow — You’re a powerful thinker with a positive attitude that brings people together. You face any obstacle with a can-do attitude, searching for new ways to solve problems. Your kids love your imaginative, adventurous spirit, and your inventive vacations are always a blast.
Black — You’re very focused and loyal. A nature lover who dislikes artificial substitutes, you wouldn’t be caught dead with a plastic Christmas tree. You also love to be the center of attention, treating others with the same respect you demand.
