About This Quiz

Color theorists have long argued that each color holds a certain set of traits that function like personality markers. To take the theory one step further, we've developed a quiz that will tell us what color your brain, and not your heart, prefers more than all the others. You might like many different colors, but we think there's a specific shade that your brain regards as more perfect than the rest. 

As we go through this quiz, we are going to try to climb inside your mind and figure out what makes your brain tick. After we find out what's going on in there at any given time, we will be able to relate your thoughts and ideas to the color that makes your brain feel excited and cozy inside your skull. 

Your brain controls most of your actions and decisions, and we expect your full attention as you dive into your squishy instrument of thought. It's only after seeing how you really feel when you are detached from your emotions that the color your brain prefers will be visible to our detectors. Will you be left feeling like you're turning violet, or will we break your crayon's mold?
