It goes with an ambitious nature but those who choose it can be abrupt at times,determined to get all they can out of life, quick to judge people and take sides. Red people are usually optimistic and can’t stand monotony; they are rather restless andnot at all introspective, so they may be unaware of their own shortcomings. They findit hard to be objective and may blame others for any mishaps. Quiet people with a preference for red may feel the need for the warmth, strength and life-giving qualitiesof the color, or they blanket their true feelings under a sober exterior. Red is usuallychosen by people with open and uncomplicated natures, with a zest for life.

Yellow usually goeswith a sunny and shrewd personality, with a good business head and a strong sense of humor. It is the color of intellectuality and all things to do with the mind. Yellow folksare usually clear and precise thinkers who have a good opinion of their own mentalcapacities and who have lofty ideals. They may at times tend to shun responsibility, preferring freedom of thought and action.
: The color of harmony and balance, Green symbolizes hope, renewal and peace, and is usually liked by the gentle and sincere.
