My college roommate (and remember, there were several, so I may or may not be talking about one of the Spoilerites when I say that) has a severe case of color blindness, meaning that his favorite color, yellow, is such because it’s the one he can see.  As for me, I’ve long had an affinity for red, as my car, my phone and my face when dealing with Rob and Stephen will attest.  A long time ago, I read an assessment of personality that said having that favorite color meant I was optimistic, extroverted and craved attentions, which is pretty damn dead-on.  ‘Course, it also claimed that I was heavily into physical activity and action, so I guess even a stopped clock is right twice a day, leading us to today’s chromatic query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) really wants to hear from the puce and magenta crowds, asking: What is your favorite color (and do you think that says anything about your personality?)

    I really don’t have a favorite but looks like most of my clothes are green, blue and black.

    I’m pretty fond of green, but I’m not sure if it says anything about me. Most of my favorite characters have some association to the color (various Green Lanterns, DragonRanger/MMPR Green Ranger as well as a few other Green Rangers, various green skinned alien species from across multiple stories such as Orion and some Twi’lek characters, etc.).

    My fave color is blue, but I don’t know what it says about me. Combine that with my second favorite color though, green, and we find a point of compatibility between me and my wife whose first and second fave colors are green and blue respectively. These were our favorite colors long before we met.
