I thought I should change the color that can be linked to me mostly – pink, but it is stuck to me for 4 years now, I believe. I am in the process of renewing my website, and considered other options but what is so bad or good about pink anyway? A little quick research:
Pink is considered to be the color of love. It is a color that is recorded to be used as far back as in 17th century. Pink is strongly connected with femininity, it is also used in a pink ribbon as a symbol of breast cancer. There is even a “pink-collar-worker” expression for jobs usually women do and in England, there is an expression “to be in the pink” – to be in good condition or good mood. We also know a singer called Pink and a Pink Panther.
On psychology side:
Pink is a combination of red and white. The quality of energy in pink is determined by how much red is present. White is the potential for fullness, while red helps you to achieve that potential. Pink combines these energies. Shades of deep pink, such as magenta, are effective in neutralizing disorder and violence. Some prisons use limited deep pink tones to diffuse aggressive behaviour.
Pink provides feelings of caring, tenderness, self-worth and love, acceptance.
“Wear pink when you want to present yourself as a peaceful, calm person who is not threatening. The softer shades are very feminine and darker shades will alleviate feelings of friction.”
But on the other hand a constant and exclusive use of pink can often lead you to become immature, silly and girlish, abandoning your adult responsibilities.
So as with everything, a sense of balance should be used :). It is rather interesting to read about colors and their effects, as far as I see it, they do have meanings and effects. I should cut down on pink.
