Whenever I've got cards or invitations to send, I love to while away time at Paper Source, picking out stationery from their vast array of colors, but it's never occurred to me to wonder why, among all the blues, I'm drawn to Lake instead of Pool, or Moss instead of Sage on the green shelf. Well lucky for me, Paper Source has created the Colorscope
, a silly online tool that will teach you what your color preferences say about your personality...
Bet you didn't know that chartreuse lovers explore the inner meaning of life, and that those who prefer butter yellow are cheerful team players. If you like the bluish-green shade of "jadeite," chances are you need a great deal of security. And if black is your color of choice, well of course you're a very serious overachiever.
It's not exactly clear what authority Paper Source has consulted to supply the Colorscope info—maybe they've got a psychic on the payroll?—but hey, it's a fun way to pass a little downtime at work. And anyway, it might actually be interesting to consider the colors in your home and what they express about you. What do you think? Is there anything to the idea that our color preferences can help us learn about ourselves?
To get to the bottom of your own color choices, visit the Colorscope on the Paper Source web site.
