About This Quiz

What is color? Color is essentially perceived by our retinas, based on the quality and amount of light that's reflected from any surface. That's the science, but most of us take color for granted in the world around us. However, colors do affect our moods. Not only do colors trigger psychological responses in a person, but they can also be used to describe certain people. The color that represents your personality isn't always the one which is your favorite or the one you wear most often, but in some cases, it is the color that excites you most.

Colors are perceived differently by different people - not only the shade or the hue, but also the interpretation. Despite that, each color has its own set of traits that most of us agree about. For example, red represents passion, orange represents sociability, yellow represents cheerfulness and green represents growth. 

Would you like to find out which of the colors of the rainbow best reflects your personality? Well, if your answer is "yes," then all you have to do is answer the questions in this quiz. When you are done, we'll tell you which color best represents you, and we'll also tell you the reasons why.
