a post in which I describe the colors I hear/get from people

I feel like I need to record this down somewhere at some point because it’s just something I really want to write about.

There’s a lengthy post under the cut—I didn’t want to annoy people with a big block of text or anything.
So, earlier I was talking about how I get colors from peoples’ voices and that they can give me a lot of… instincts about that person, I suppose? Well, I decided that I will compile information on what I know about them so far and what the colors seem to mean, from what I’ve gathered.

(By the way, I have gotten colors from fictional characters in books/writing before without hearing any voices—I don’t know how it works, but it does happen. I’m only addressing what I get from actual people for now, haha.)

First, I will start with the solid colors.

A solid color is any one of these six: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple. The first three are the socially warm colors, while the latter are the socially cool colors. These are the main bases of someone’s personality. I will address these in order.

Red: Red is probably the only color I’ve ever gotten without hearing a person’s voice first. This has happened twice from what I remember, and it’s interesting, because both of them are mafia players that I know. I think that red people are actually the best suited for mafia because they’re incredibly great at including substance in their words—they may not be the best writers, but they are incredibly great at debating. I see it as something like this: Blood is red, much like discussion is the lifeblood of a mafia game/argument. Red people also tend to have low self-esteem for one reason or another, and they remind others of this rather often.

Orange: Orange people are, as some might imagine, very sunny people. They tend to be adept at making friends (albeit not so much at keeping them). Oranges are keen at giving others advice and cheering their friends on, and they usually fare the best in social situations. They don’t seem to show their sad sides very often, however—in fact, I think that orange people have a bit of trouble expressing their emotions themselves, despite being great listeners. They are usually not used to exposing their more vulnerable sides to others; if they do, they’re considerably shy about it. They might have problems talking about their personal lives.

Yellow: I actually haven’t known as many yellows, but from what I know, they are flamboyant and showy. Yellow people are always on top about gossip and they can get pretty serious if they are aware that someone is talking about them or their friends. Out of all colors, yellows are most comfortable in telling people their secrets, and they tend to be more confident in their feelings and beliefs. One of my best friends is a pretty vibrant yellow, and he makes my days so bright when I can be around him. Yellow can tend to have volatile emotions, however, and in certain situations they can lose their temper pretty easily. Yellows are also cautious. Obviously.

Green: Green people are unique, I think. It can be hard to read them (I have trouble with it myself), and they are pretty critical thinkers. Most greens that I know are in a constant self-conflict. Green people avoid arguing when it’s possible, and not because they aren’t skilled arguers, either—they simply feel conflict unnecessary when they already experience it within themselves on a regular basis. Green people are almost always writers, from what I’ve gathered, and have the best natures for it. Greens are prone to depression, whether it be chronic or not, but ironically can be the best at handling it out of all of the other colors. Thinking too hard can make them physically exhausted.

Blue: Blue people usually have the most comforting voices. I don’t know what it is, but blue people are poetically beautiful. Blues are the best at relating to other people, even if they have never experienced the same things as them—they have this innate ability to somehow place themselves into another’s world and feel their pain. They’re graceful at many things that they do, and they are huge dreamers. Blue is a vast and infinite color, and blue people reflect this trait by being fervently ambitious and optimistic in their ability to accomplish anything that they desire. Even though blue is a color often associated with sadness, blue people are capable of being some of the happiest people. Unfortunately, they also can hide very debilitating fears.

Purple: Purple is a neutral color. Purple people tend to be the quietest of all of the colors, though this isn’t always due to shyness—some simply prefer to learn through observing rather than through confrontation. Purples often have hair that is hard to manage, but adorable when managed right (I swear, nearly every one of that I know has adorable hair and they always hate taking care of it and go through a complex process in doing so). Purples are artists, and they honestly don’t mind spending a lot of time on a thing as long as they can get it finished. They’re great at concentrating and I believe that’s why they bother making sure their hair is always perfect even if it’s a hassle for them every day. Purples prefer solitude; because of this, are oft interpreted as antisocial, though this is usually a misguided conclusion.
For reference: I tend to get along the best with blues and yellows. My sister told me that I’m most likely a green, and this would make a ton of sense—green is in the middle of yellow and blue, so it is only natural that my aura would be most attracted to them. My best friends are an indigo-ish, a yellow, a salmon (an INCREDIBLY uncommon color for me to get), and a swampy green. My sister is a purple and I get along well with her, too. My roommate was a bright orange and I didn’t get very close to her.

Pastels: Being a pastel color means that a person is more comfortable with being open about themselves, regardless of their base colors.

Shades: Being a darker color indicates that a person holds many secrets within themselves, and can be a bit mysterious.

Now that I’ve got this covered, I would like to explain how base colors work, exactly, when mixed. For example, we have indigo and blue-green people. Sometimes people may have a base color and then another that blankets over their personality base, which indicates layers of traits that can be rather difficult to sift through. Mixed bases not only mix potentially contradicting traits with each other—they can also have entirely different characteristics from the simple bases that I described above. Indigo people tend to have body issues, for example, but they eat what they want anyhow even if they sometimes feel guilty for it, and blue-green people are prone to leaving their friends behind due to relentless insecurities. Magenta people are fashionistas.

Perhaps I might explain the more complex colors in the future, because they’re rather interesting to think about.
