Wearing Color Turquoise Meaning

The color turquoise is very popular, many people like it, yet to see somebody wearing it in large amounts is very rare, despite it being an attractive color.

However, from a psychology and personality point of view, wearing the color turquoise may suggest an inward-thinking person, or a highly intuitive person that doesn’t spend a great deal of time living in the current moment.

Inward intuitive thinking people often see things differently, or more uniquely than most people. This unique thinking manifests itself in the external world. For example, in the colors that they choose to wear, plus other outward expressions and choices.

They’re more interested in doing their own thing and self-expression rather than trying to fit in with or follow the crowd. Even though they’re bright colors that stand out, a wearer would probably not be looking for attention, simply wishing to express themselves without looking for the approval or opinions of others.

Wearing the color cyan would be similar, but more exaggerated in its meanings.
