If you were asked to choose one colour, what will it be? There’s a high chance that it will be a blue. Surveys from all over the world put blue is the number 1 colour that people choose. In a YouGov survey conducted on people from 10 countries in 4 continents, it was found that in the UK 33% of people like blue (the highest), to 23% in Indonesia (the lowest). So it appears that at almost at least a quarter of the people like blue.
Skype, Facebook, Twitter, Boeing, Visa, Paypal – many of the most prominent tech companies in the world spot a blue-coloured logo.
So, why is blue such a popular colour? Experts put it down to our association of colours with the mood we feel. Our planet is awash with the colour blue. The clear blue sky, the deep blue sea – we are enveloped with blue. It is no wonder the popularity of the blue colour cuts across many cultures and places.
How may our choice of colour reveal about our personality? The following fun list of positive personalities as defined by the colours you like:
Blue – If this is your colour, you are known be an ordered person. You take your responsibilities seriously, and are in control of matters. You have a nice disposition and people are drawn to you. You are equally drawn to cool, crisp mornings in the mountains as well as to balmy seashores.
Red – Red brings out the energy in you. You are drawn to red because it represents speed and thrill: think red-hot Ferarri! If you love red, you are driven (pun intended) and are passionate about life.

Brown – If you love the colour brown, you know you are a down-to-earth person. (earth is brown, remember?) You are highly responsible and secure. You are perceived as smart, yet you are friendly and approachable. Most of all you love the great outdoors!
