You have a soft, soothing, and compassionate demeanor. Blue represents tranquility, calm and security. If you are drawn to blue hues, you probably view your home as an oasis of calm in a hectic world. You may also be a bit of an introvert, and enjoy staying in with a cool shade on the wall. Blues like High Dive also impart a note of self-confidence, which is quite fitting given the name. You like to be admired for your steady character and wisdom.
