    I’m addicted to cobalt blue. I’ve been feeling this way for about a month now. I like going online to gaze at sapphire stones and blue diamonds. In general, my favorite color is a light pink and has been since I was little. I wonder what this sudden interest in dark blue is all about. I’m in discernment about my life. I wonder if that has something to do with it.

    I’m definitely a blue person. Most all shades of blue, but my favorites are navy, cobalt, and cyan. I recently stumbled across a color called turcyan which looks like a combination of turquoise and cyan. Colors of the waters of the Caribbean and Mediterranean – I never tire of these colors.

      I am a big fan of lighter rich shades of blue myself, especially cyan when combined with darker colors. Thanks for the comment.

    I’ve been reading several of these evaluations of color preference in an individual’s psychology and it’s pretty striking how accurate most of it is. My favorite color is a dark blue and almost everything besides organized applies to me. When I was a child, my favorite color was red and those attributes were very strong in me as well when I was very young. I would venture that many people have different favorite colors at one time or another in their development and perhaps that , along with other valuations (which colors they like from most to least, what things they associate with certain colors, etc.), could shed more light on individual personalities. For example: My favorite color was red when I was a child up until sometime around 4th or 5th grade, and it’s been different variations of blue for the most part since then, The blue personality is almost entirely accurate, but I still have some traits from red: passionate (though mostly in just a few areas, which might be part of the blue personalities’ interest in a narrow band of things), I fall into the trap of instant gratification (though I am almost the complete opposite of implusive), competitive in large part, and I like to be the center of attention (but only around close friends). I may be reading to much into color psychology;I am not a psychologist myself (though I have some rudimentary knowledge of different areas of it, a general interest in it), so I may be reading to much into it, but I thought my own experience with having different favorite colors at different times and how that relates to my personality to be interesting and I thought I would share.

      People tend to have dominant traits and secondary traits, sometimes those secondary traits will show themselves more depending on circumstances, and also they do alter somewhat with age.

      There is a strong connection between color and personality traits, so yeah often favorite colors do change, and for some people their personalities maybe more of a combination of two or more colors, or perhaps a different shade.

      Great comment, thanks for sharing.
