Color connotations for people.
Depending on the letters in peoples names and what type of personality they have and what I know they like, I think of them as a certain color. What they wear affects this perception as well. Actually I am honestly not sure if what they wear affects the perception or if they wear something that fits with their color in my head it just works from there. Like it reinforces the color connotation in my head. I will give some examples.
My mom is Dark brown. She affected my coloring for the letter ‘M’. Its color is the exact shade her hair is.
My oldest best friend’s colors are a light blue and yellow, because ever since we were little she has had the longest blonde hair and her favorite season is winter and the cold doesn’t affect her at all and she love ice princess characters. She wears a lot of light blue and green as well. Her name is ever yellow and blue. The colors for our friendship were Green and Blue. I had this fabulous nail polish set that were a really dynamic green and blue. I would wear it all the time.
My middle best friend is a pinkish color. Her name is pink and orange but mostly pink. She is extremely sexual and when I met her I was going through a intense period of sexual discovery. She helped me find my self sexually. She had a off pink carpet in her room. Our colors are Pink and Green. Because of that I think pink is a intensely flirty color. It is affection and love. It is devotion and love no matter how many or how often it is offered.
My latest best friend is green and brown. No matter what she wears this one shirt of hers is the correct color for her. The shirt is this really attractive forest green. Her hair is dark brown. Her skin is olive. Her full name is mostly forest green with some blue and brown. I verbally call her something else but writing it makes me feel awkward. She has friends that call her another name that would probably be better for the writing and color connotation but it just doesn’t flow right when I say it. Our colors are Green and purple which confuses me sometimes cause I am green. But when I think about it it makes more sense. Her favorite characters color is purple and when we met I was detached from my rooms current color. When we repainted I was feeling so very Purple. Sometime I think that deep down we are the same person in my head. I see so many parallels between us.
When I meet someone online and all I know of them is their user name and their actual names and their own colors are vastly different it really mind fucks me. I usually am not able to think they and their user name are the same person. I have so much trouble with that. In my mind the are two different people and I have to constantly remind my self that they are the same.
I have trouble remembering peoples name especially if my color connotation for the name is vastly different from the person.
Oh that reminds me, I have so much trouble remembering faces so at the beginning of the day I will take note of the colors they are wearing and if I need to pick them out of a crowd I will use that and other distinguishing features like hair color and height.
