From the age of only 12 weeks, we humans begin to show preferences for certain colours over others. At that stage in our lives we tend to be drawn to softer, cooler colours – the gentle blues and pinks that are ubiquitous in infant bedrooms. These tastes often change, slightly, but most of us have fairly well made up our mind about our favourite colour by the age of 2 – something that likely stays with us throughout our lives.
It would follow, then, that our favourite colours would say a lot about our personalities. After all, our interests and preferences in our youth undoubtedly shape who we become as we mature. Those who specialise in contemporary colour theory would concur. The evidence suggests that each colour in the colour wheel has its own significance, connotations and emotional resonance, which many argue maps directly onto our character. So why not personalise your stationery to match your personality? Have a look at some of our recommendations!
