Pink is feminine and romantic, affectionate and intimate, thoughtful and caring, and represents compassion, nurturing and love. Pink is intuitive and insightful, showing tenderness and kindness with its empathy and sensitivity.
In color psychology, pink is a sign of hope. It is a positive color inspiring warm and comforting feelings, a sense that everything will be okay. Pink calms and reassures our emotional energies, alleviating feelings of anger, aggression, resentment, abandonment and neglect.
Pink, from a negative color meaning, can represent a lack of will power, a lack of self-reliance and a lack of self-worth. It can indicate an overly emotional and overly cautious nature.
Combining pink with other darker colors such as dark blue, dark green, black or gray, adds strength and sophistication to pink.
Preference for Pink : Loving, kind, generous and sensitive to the needs of others, is friendly and approachable with a warmth and softness others are drawn to. You are the nurturers of the world – you have a maternal instinct, with a need to protect and take care of others.
Aversion to Pink : A person who has an aversion to pink may have a challenge with expressing soft, tender, female side, so isn’t the compassionate and nurturing type. He may have unresolved emotional problems from his childhood and craves for more excitement and action in his life.
The Meaning of Colors You Choose
Carl Jung, a renowned psychiatrist and proponent of art therapy, encouraged his patients to use color because he felt this would help them express some of the deeper parts of their psyche. It is believed that the color choices you make reflect a deeper meaning about your personality traits. For example, introverts and extroverts are likely to choose different colors – blue and red respectively.
The colors you choose to wear might also say something about how you are feeling that day. Some days you may fee like wearing something lighter, something red, or something blue. These choices are often a reflection of how you are feeling at the moment. Additionally, wearing certain colors may cause you to react differently to certain situations.
The colors you dislike can tell you a lot about yourself as well, often reflecting your weaknesses and vulnerabilities.
Your most disliked color will relate to areas in your life that need to be given attention or past hurts that need to be healed. Think back to your childhood or any earlier time in your life where you may have developed a dislike of the color. There is always a connection!
