  1. I found that all but one of these is true about me. Everything I do is a matter of how others feel. Even if they are mad or sad I always try to help them feel better. I also observe people and learn quickly of their likes and dislikes. With that it helps me learn and understand their feelings.

    1. Hi, I’m glad you found it accurate. You seem like a very compassionate person that’s in touch with your feelings.

  2. I love pink, it’s been my favorite color since I was a kid. And exactly what you have described about pink is correct except for “being immature”.

  3. Wow! So blown away after reading this! My favorite color is pink and always has been since I can remember. My eyes are always just naturally attracted to the color pink. This whole discription fits me so exact it’s not even funny! I can’t wait to share this with my husband! He likes the color pink too, although it’s not his favorite color like mine.
    In my adult life, I feel I can’t always choose the color pink anymore for everything and it really bothers me! Especially in my home decor. Even though my eyes naturally attract to it, I know it’s not practical for my whole home to be pink. But if I had it my way, my whole home would probably be pink. But with a husband and two kids I feel now I should decorate like an adult who would choose more appropriate colors. I also feel like maybe I should have outgrown the color pink by now, like I thought I eventually would one day. I have literally tried choosing more adult colors in my dress, like blacks and browns and tans, like a person my age should be wearing. I cannot shake the color pink. It is literally the color of my soul. Luckily enough, I have a baby girl now and I am able to live out my favorite color pink through her. I hope her favorite color will be pink too one day. We are already both geminis ❤️

    1. Hi, yeah in life we often have to balance our desires, need for expression and doing what is expected of us.

      Perhaps you have some deep routed connections with the color pink, perhaps from childhood, or perhaps a connection on a biological level with the associations of the color pink.

      Very nice comment, thank you for sharing.

    2. I am an adult woman of a certain age and I LOVE pink. I wore pink today and felt energized. Why cut yourself off from your soul color? Hummmm-thinking about how others feel at the expense of your own feeings. Sounds like a pink personality to me. Think pink, do pink and you will be in the pink!

  4. My favorite color is pink I hate blue and maybe once I get older I can wear pink and even die my hair pink and wear everything pink without noticing people staring at me??

  5. I love the dark pink i am feminine & nurturing…but also passionate & loving incidentally my dreams are all about romantic love, that ‘one unique love’ stepoing up, si this attracttion to dark pink ( more so now) has deeper meaning!!
