Let’s Talk: What’s Your Favourite Colour?
My favourite colour is red.
“Red is the colour of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love.”
Red is a very emotionally intense colour. It enhances human metabolism, increases respiration rate, and raises blood pressure. It has very high visibility, which is why stop signs, stoplights, and fire equipment are usually painted red. In heraldry, red is used to indicate courage. It is a colour found in many national flags.” (Source: Colour Wheel Pro)
Why do I like the colour red?
Well, the colour represents one of my zodiac signs, Leo and also the element of Leo is fire.
Red also represents power and courage.
Red is very common in our world as it is used for warning signs, attention and much more to make us quickly focus our attention on it. And I am always up for quick attention when I see it.
I like the colour red because it is very pure and subtle to my eye. It really is beautiful to the eye of how bright and passionate it can be like a rose.
It shows the emotion of anger, which is in relation to me since I have a huge temper in anger and rage in my life.
I also have a lot of things in my room and around me that relate to the colour red such as the LED lights on my laptop keyboard, my bed sheet, my pillow, my chair, my pyjamas and my favourite funnel shirt that has a dominate of red of it.
The colour red also shows romance. To me, I love anything romantic such as Korean dramas, tv shows, movies, stories, book and pretty much anything related to it. I also revolve around romance such as having a significant other that I love very much.
My favourite fruits that include red are cherries and strawberries. Cherries are my second favourite fruit along with strawberries.
In some Asian cultures, red symbolises ‘good luck’, ‘happiness’ & ‘prosperity’. An example of why this represents to me is because since I am Vietnamese, red is shown on the Vietnam flag to show those symbols. Even during Lunar New Year, we get red pocket money.
But what is the real reason I like red? There is no definite reason for liking red, to me. The colour is just ‘attracting’ in my eyes.
So what’s your favourite colour? And think why do you like that colour?
