of royalty and loyalty
i love purple. ALL purples- lavender, plum, lilac, violet, aubergine, etc. i did not always love purple. when i was a little girl, i had to have everything green. green cup, green toothbrush, green bike, whatever- it had to be green. but somewhere into my middle school years (i think), the color of choice became purple.
now, if you look into what our color choices symbolize or mean, personality-wise, it can be pretty surprising. this is what i found for the color purple:
Purples are highly individual, fastidious, witty and sensitive, with a strong desire to be unique and different. (ZACTLY!!) Temperamental, expansive and artistic, a Purple person may become aloof and sarcastic when misunderstood. (oh yeah, this i know!) Mysterious is a word that describes you perfectly. You like power and royalty and wish to enlighten others with your wisdom. (as in "wise-ass!)You are a faithful partner but can be cruel with your words. (indeed-loyal and cru-el!) If you chose Purple, you tend to be unconventional, tolerant and dignified, likely to achieve positions of authority. (ok, unconventional-yes, tolerant, dignified and likely to achieve positions of authority? hahahahahaha, i am falling off my chair!)
but basically, it is correct.
my second favorite color is red. but not all shades of red. here is what "they" have to say about the color red:
If your favorite color is red, you are a passionate person. Red people are usually optimistic and can’t stand monotony; they are rather restless and not at all introspective. (all true, except for the not introspective part, i AM!) Red people may be impulsive, possibly athletic, sexy and given to mood swings. Falling victim to lust is a position you may find yourself in frequently. (notice the sexy part!) (it would be helpful to be athletic if you are constantly FALLING victim!)You are determined to experience life to its fullest. (um, well..NOT!)
so there you have it- purple and red, the colors of royalty and SEX!! i knew it all along!
