I don't have a favorite color! I've always felt really stupid when people ask me, like, how can you not know? But I just don't have favorites.
Well, I know what I don't like. I do like a lot of different colors, but, as someone else pointed out, I like them in different contexts. So, ... yes and no.-Can you look at a color and immediately, without thinking, respond, "Yes, I like this" or "No, I do not like this" for no other reason than "I just do/n't?"
[quote]-Do you consciously associate certain colors with physical objects/memories/ideas, and decide you like them based on your interest/affinity for said associations?[/quote
No. But I do associate different moods with different colors. Blue is calming. Bright pink is fun and dreamy. Yellow makes me happy. And so on.
Okay, yeah. This is what I was getting at.-Do colors generate in you "feelings" that you like/dislike and so decide to like/dislike the color because of it?
No, not completely mood dependent.Is your likeness for a color mood dependent? If so, questions 1, 2, and 3 are still applicable. I would also like to know to which degree this process is a conscious one for you; are you always absolutely aware of why you like something?
