We are done with color psychology basics so let’s discuss red personality type. According to some, you have red color personality type if you have strong preference for red, but in reality many people love multiple colors, so it’s probably best to read through description and see where you belong. Keep in mind, color psychology is not exact science and you may exhibit only some of these personality traits.
People with red personality type are usually quite active, cheerful and optimistic, similar to sanguine personality type. It is interesting that word “sanguine” means “bloody” in Latin language, not in the meaning of bloodshed but in the meaning of excess of blood. It is believed that excess of blood leads to cheerful optimism, just like you see in people with red color personality type. It is an interesting coincidence that red color is strongly associated with blood.
People with red personality type love attention and are willing to work for it. This isn’t hard though; because they are so energetic and joyful many people will actually want to be around them in hopes that their joy and happiness will rub off on them too.
These people are quite competitive and are not willing to settle for second best. Another positive trait is that they love originality and strive to bring something new; they want to add to this world.
Generally “red” people can be considered dreamers, however they do not just dream; they will also put realistic plans and work for achievement of their dreams no matter how ambitious they are. Many famous artists, actors, and vagabonds exhibit characteristics of red color personality type.
