That being said, color plays a major role in our lives and our favorite colors can say a lot about who we are and how we interact with the world around us.

Black

People who love the color black have a few rough edges - and they make no efforts to hide it. They like to view the world in alternative ways, often being involved in subcultures that see the harsher side of things. Of course, this doesn't mean that they think the world is out to get them, quite the contrary. Often, people who prefer the color black hide their true selves with a stony exterior. They might have experienced hardship early in life or are merely emotionally sensitive people.

In Relationships

Relationships are easy to find are hard to keep for people who like the color black. They have an intense, mysterious aura that attracts people from all walks of life to them. They have an almost instant physical connection with many people that they meet. Commitment can be difficult, however, as they tend to push people away when they get too close.

At Work

People who like black tend to prefer to be left alone when not in the company of like-minded people and often work behind-the-scenes. They are hard, dedicated workers but may have difficulty in retail jobs or positions that require high levels of interpersonal skills. Despite their sometimes sub-par communication skills, they work well under pressure and can handle high-stress situations with ease.

Pink

Pink is a color that oozes with confidence. While it is a traditionally feminine color, people who like pink may have very masculine personality traits. They are goal-oriented, willful, and full of energy. They demand only the best out of life and can become defensive when they feel they aren't getting their due. This can make people who like the color pink appear like they feel better than everyone else, but it's quite the contrary. They expect everyone to hold themselves to the same high standards, and become easily frustrated when other people settle for less than the best.

In Relationships

High-maintenance. Those who love pink are known for their rigorous expectations of both themselves and their partner. If you have managed to catch the eye of someone who loves pink, consider yourself lucky - you're one of the few. It takes a lot to get and keep someone who loves the color pink, but their devotion and affection will make it worth it in the end.

At Work

People who love the color pink are team players and often feel a strong alliance with their company or organization. They make devoted employees, but often criticize management or their colleagues if they feel they aren't getting treated fairly.

Yellow

People who like the color yellow are often described as rays of sunshine by their family and friends. They are often painfully optimistic and have a go-with-the-flow attitude and aren't the type to plan too far ahead. What they lack in planning, however, they make up for in passion.

At Work

Those who prefer yellow make great team members, inspiring others to do their best. They don't tend to strive for large-scale managerial positions but instead work as team leaders and managers at a much more human level.

In Relationships

People who like yellow are incredibly affectionate with those closest to them, even if they may seem physically distant with others. They love praise and attention and will go to great lengths to seek it out. They have a tendency to try and "fix" people who may not be a good influence on their lives. Unfortunately, they often let the words of other people determine their self-worth and can be easily trapped into abusive relationships.

Green

People who like the color green always have a plan and can have trouble going with the flow. They can sometimes be described as calculating by strangers and predictable by those closest to them.

In Relationships

People who like green seek calm and serenity above all else, and this can too often lead to control issues in a partnership. Even while they strive for a tranquil relationship, they find conflict more often than not.

If you have managed to find a way to find balance with someone who loves green, they will work hard to keep it and be devoted to the relationship. They don't give up on their friends or family easily, even at the greatest perceived injustices. They value loyalty and respect above all else.

In Work

Those who like the color green are naturally successful in the workplace, often assuming leadership roles almost immediately.

Purple

Purple has long been associated in Western culture with royalty, refinement, and elegance. People whose favorite color is purple often expect nothing but the best, and that includes themselves. They can often be described as snooty or uptight, but this is often just a misguided judgement for their desire for success and perfection.

Brown is earthy and unassuming, preferring to be recognized for who they are instead of what they are.

Brown

The best way to describe someone who likes brown is an old soul. They tend to be old-fashioned in their moral views and resist or even resent changes. This isn't to say that they are overly judgmental or feel that their way is best - they just want to continue their way of life uninterrupted.

At Work

The most important thing to people who like the color brown is to follow his passion. Money is often a secondary thought. Because of this, they don't tend to do well in commission-based jobs unless they enjoy their work.

In Relationships

While people who like the color brown are devoted companions, they aren't the most passionate. Instead, they have a gentle, unassuming kind of love that can be mistaken for friendship in even the most heated of romantic relationships. Physical intimacy of any kind isn't particularly important for people who like brown, but constant communication is key.
