    Black, red and blue. But I chose black for the purposes of this poll. Most of my clothes are black.

    Well, blue is emotional in itself, but calm, serene really. Um, yellow is bright, upbeat, happy. Green is...content, home/family centered, healthy. Red (early twenties red was big with me) I'd say impulsive, outgoing, passionate, sexual. Purple (comes and goes) is more spiritual to me, brings to mind times of spiritual awakening and also of honoring death and the moving on of loved ones. I tend to identify with and am drawn more to a particular color just depending on how things are going for me. What's going on in my life and how it makes me feel. Right now I'm liking aquamarine. Figure what you will with that. :p

    For me, the symbolism of blue really depends on the blue - the name "blue" encompasses a wide variety of colors. I might get calm from a sky blue, but not from a stormy gray-blue, or a night blue-black blue. Blue can be frigid, cold, callous, depressing on top of being hopeful, calming, soothing, and peaceful.

    I think the aquamarine means you should take a vacation somewhere tropical. They have water that color. :D

    I'm the same. I don't have a single favorite combination, but it's the combinations that I like. The exception is, I like bright red on women. For some reason, I associate it with assertiveness and passion for life.

    Naw, plaid is an aesthetic obscenity. :p

    (well, I suppose it depends, but plaids are.... they are just not flattering looking to me... lol)

    They're not supposed to be flattering; plaids are supposed to reflect clan pride, as the kilt-wearin' bagpipe-torturin' Scots come o'er the hilltops to attack the similarly-clad Irish and Welsh villagers...Just ask @Revoltingest and @A Greased Scotsman !

    It's a Celtic thing...the only thing we can all agree on: It's the Brits' fault! Which means about half of my genome is constantly at war within itself...while the German plus everything else half watches, amused...

    This sort of wishy washiness is why young people today have no focus.
    You're new favourite colour is green.
    You're welcome.

    Incidentally, now that all the cool people seem to prefer green, we should start a petition to get a Green DIR.
