Color Psychology Questionnaire 16

**Found there are currently some bugs with the embedded Google forms if you're using an
iPhone. I apologize that it's inconvenient. Works perfectly fine on the computer and on
Android phones. Thank you for being patient.

Instead of beginning our short series on color with a whole bunch of knowledge being poured over you; i would much rather involve you in the process.

We delving intoย learning about color psychology. Which basically takes a very analytical look at how each color, and various combinations, makes us feel, and how it influences the way we perceive things in those colors.

Many people have spoken on this topic, and i will do my best to compile the best and most applicable research i can find. But, especially because written knowledge on this topic is so saturated, and can be very opinionated because of personal and cultural differences, i don’t want to begin with simply passing on information. To me, it matters more that this is a discovery process for each of us…How do we as individuals perceive each color? How do they make you feel? Live data is so much more fun and personal! It will help me to create more relatable posts for you.

In the last post, we considered the idea that truth can be thought of in color, rather than black and white or grey–that it can vary based on context. Feeling associated with color can vary, too, and there’s much we can learn from it when we consider other opinions. So that’s why i wanted to begin with a reminder to have respect for each other’s opinions.

So, this post is an interactive one i hope you will all participate in!

      That’s one thing i thought i would have loved to track, and wish i had!
      I hadn’t added that because i didn’t want to be annoying, making everybody have to add their country on EVERY COLOR…And that was the only way i could have done it, since don’t know of a way to track information between the various surveys, being that it’s all Google Forms.
      I totally agree that getting to see which answers came from which cultures would have been extremely fascinating though! I will be adding a little bit of that sort of information in the follow up post, via research from color psychology professionals i’m reading up on.
      Thank you for participating! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m glad you enjoyed it!

      Interesting! What do you think it is about red that you hate? And what brought you to the conclusion that green is a better color for you than pink or blue?
      ๐Ÿ™‚ Green is one of my recent surprising favorites right now, too. I used to hate it because i couldn’t find the right shades…the ones i always did find had a way with grossing me out.

    Very interesting survey, especially thinking about what you associate with certain colors! My favorite colors are royal blue and hot pink, two colors I associate with confidence.

      Thank you!
      I love it…Can totally see how you associate both colors with confidence. One is widespread considered to be professional, and the other is very bold. Additionally, a little bit of both together can look lovely!
      Thanks for participating! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Glad you had fun! Teal is one of my long-time-going favorites as well ๐Ÿ™‚ Gorgeous color…I can’t think of anybody it could possibly look bad on…And it’s so beautifully peaceful and energetic all at once!
      What do you personally like about it?

      Love it! What do you think you like most about black?
      And thank you so much! I’m looking forward to sharing the results. ๐Ÿ˜„ I want to back it up with research done by color psychology professionals, so i’m just waiting for some books to come in the mail.

      Pink is wonderful! Did you know that it originally was the ” baby boy” color while blue was the “girl” color, because it’s so energetic? I was a little surprised by that. 20th century consumerism turned pink into a “girly” thing. I love the delicate energy of that color and hope it will continue to get more respect from women and men alike, of all ages!
      Do you have a favorite shade?

      I’m glad you enjoyed the questionaire! That encouragement of deep thinking was exactly what i hoped it would do. ๐Ÿ˜Š
