For some reason I’ve been taking more personality tests lately. Sometimes it’s just for fun. Sometimes it’s part of an assessment test in a job application.
I absolutely hate the question ‘What is your favorite color?’
How do you answer that? My favorite color for my hair is blonde. My favorite color to paint my house changes but it would never be purple. But I LOVE the color purple, just not for my hair or the exterior of my house.
If I’m going to buy a dress to attend a wedding, I’m not going to buy something white. But I actually Love white in the right places.
If I’m going to paint the walls inside my house, I would never paint them black. But I love to wear black clothes (it looks better on me than orange). But orange is a lovely color for flowers. Black would be awful.
My car is navy blue and most of my nail polish is a shade of pink. I wouldn’t want to switch them.
So how on earth do you answer the question
‘What is your favorite color?’ or, for our Canadian friends, ‘What is your favourite colour?’
