Whether you’re a spiritual being or simply looking at moving onwards and upwards in the differents aspects of your life, there is a lot to be said about your personality type based on your color preference. The simple notion that your color preference denotes your personality or character is of course, not exactly literal, but it is a great way to get us to think inwardly about some traits and tendencies that we may have, and how we can work to use them to build a happy and positive life. Take a look and see what your color choice says about you:
