    Are you attracted to certain colors? Does your wardrobe color choice speak something about you? Do room colors affect our mood? Chromotherapy, or Color Therapy, has been around for a very long time. It's been scientifically proven that colors can and do affect our moods and emotions, and our color preferences may actually speak of our needs for specific energies in our life.

    A friend of mine tells the tale of assuming her mother loved yellow. They always bought her things in yellow, down to the kitchen drapes. One day her mom asked if she could please, please, have something in a different color, much to the daughter's dismay! When asked why, since yellow was her favorite color, the mom replied, "I don't know why you kids think it's my favorite color, or why you associate it with me, but I actually hate it!" Dottie was a bright, happy, upbeat person and somehow the kids were "seeing" her as the sunshine color!

    So, what colors attract you? What colors do you avoid? Is your wardrobe pretty much a basic of a few colors, or does it look like a rainbow of choices? Do people "see" you as associated with a certain color?

    In general, I don't have any colors that I avoid. There are some that I'm not as fond of, but I don't avoid any of them. My favorites are black, blue, and gray.

    My wardrobe on the other hand, is comprised of a fairly narrow color set. Blue, red, gray, black and green for the most part. According to the chart on the linked page, I'm schizophrenic! :D

    LOL! Had your meds checked lately? :p

    I'm a rather narrow color schemer. Black, Indigo, blue and lavender. Pretty much nails me!

    Wow, I have heard of this before, but never really looked at it. I guess it sort of depends on what the object is, but I definitely like the blues, and I like grays. Throw a little black in there, and I guess Surge and I would be exactly the same!
