Well... this is part of a theory I have linking personality to colour.. sort of.

Black is a colour. Whoever said that only the shades produced by mixing primary colours were colours were wrong.

Black is distinguishable from all of the other colours, wo why is it not.

It is a very silly definition.

my personal opinion of why a lot of people like blue is because it is hard to find in the natural world (other then the sky)...

My favorite color is not on your list. It is a mixture of yellow, white, a touch of red and an even smaller touch of blue. The combination is a pale-off-white-golden-orangy-tan (which I did not expect to find on your list) :smile: .

I find it interesting that you totally blew off the tertiery (brown, tan, gold etc) colors (other than black).

In light, black is not a color, as you said. In paint, black can be mixed by using all of the primary colors (so that each of the colors of light are absorbed).

Hmm... I must say, there is an interesting bias towards the high energy end of the spectrum. I'll compare this against average population data, to formulate an assessment of intelligence based on favourite colour. :smile: (only joking, unless if anyone would like to provide funding....)

I have asked myself this many times. I would choose a certain shade of a certain color, then later on see something different and become enamored with it.

Pink – (had to add this flavor) don’t really like it that much

Red – can be harsh, but some shades are very striking.

Orange – I must be in special mood to like it, with most shades doing little for me.

Yellow – Only if it’s glossy.

Green – Can be as big as a mountain or tall as a tree (Sinatra tune). I like dark greens and light greens more than in-between greens.

Blue – can be very beautiful (so many shades are beautiful too).

Purple – shades of mauve can be ok, but mostly I don’t like this color.

Black – Like yellow I prefer it glossy.

White – I don’t know if I’ve ever actually seen this one. Every time I think I have then later I see another shade which makes the first seem off-white. I favor these shades, however.

Not in visible spectrum – Yes, these are fantastical.

Over all, I like glossiness in my colors (at least when dealing with painted objects).
