What color are you?

I was at a wedding last weekend, and the person sitting next to me commented on how she had always seen the bride as a bright flash of color. I agreed with her. I think maybe a purple or a turquoise would match this bride's personality.

When I was in high school, I envisioned myself the same way. I decided that I was represented by the color red. I've always liked red, and I felt that, somehow, it matched my personality.

(Here's a site that talks about the perceived meanings of color. And here's one that talks about gender differences in color preferences.)

So, over the years, I kept this image of myself, a flash of red. I used to wear red clothes all the time, but I got tired of how quickly they faded in the wash. Nevertheless, you will never see me without either 1) my red sunglasses, 2) my red patent leather Dansko clogs, or 3) my red Hello Kitty wallet. Come on, you knew I was a bit nutty, right?

What's really interesting to me is that over the years, OTHER people have begun associating me with the color red. I can't even tell you how many people - people who know me and see me on a regular basis - think I drive a red car. I've never had a red car. My car is silver. Still - they see me and they think red.
