What is Your Color Number?

Have you ever wondered why although you agree on many other things you and a close friend, relative or even spouse can often have such differing tastes when it comes to color? Especially colors in the home?

We see it in our stores all the time. A lady thinks that a certain gold colored carpet is just the thing for her living room but her male companion is pulling faces, obviously hating the idea. He is trying to make the case for the blue one in the other aisle but shes having none of it. Obviously they both know what is in the rest of the room (furnishings, draperies etc) so how could they have such different visions about what will work?

Color Personalities decoded by Numbers

These differences say color experts and interior designers come about because everyone – whether they realize it or not has a color personality. They are subconsciously drawn to certain colors that actually reflect their personality.

There are many different quizzes and tests you can take that are designed to help you determine your color personality but we recently came across one method we had never encountered before – determining your color personality with numerology. Even if we are not sure that it really works it sounded interesting enough to explore further.

Here’s how you make the basic calculation (if maths are not your thing you may want to get a calculator out for this part)

Using the chart on the right take each letter in your name and find its corresponding number (you should use both your first and last names for the best results apparently) then add all the numbers until you reach a single digit. For example:

Jane Doe – 1+1+5+5+4+6+5 = 27

2+7 = 9

So Jane’s number is nine, making her a gold kind of person. Try it for yourself and then check the meaning of each color personality below. Just for fun, how accurate is it? And does the result match the colors of the carpets, drapes, paint and other color elements in your home? Let us know in the comments!

1. Red: Indicates a very dominant personality. A person who is a bit of a risk taker and always full of new ideas. Also indicates they are passionate and flamboyant

2. Orange: A happy go lucky kind of person who is very loyal and rolls with the punches well.

7. Violet: A sentimental soul who is passionate about art, literature and beautiful possessions..

8. Rose: Actually the indication of a passionate leader who can turn visions into realties where others cannot

9. Gold: A person who radiates kindness, compassion and joy and tries very hard to remain positive at all times
