With the recent discussions of clothing and looks, it got me thinking about color-theory.
Most INTP's are comfortable with wearing dark colors; most popular would be black, gray, crimson red, or solid purple and blue.
My question goes to, for most INTP's who 'choose' their own clothes to purchase and wear, do any of you go for the bright / faded colors like canary, palm beach coral, marine, etc... as opposed to their solid or more darker shades of Yellow, Orange, Blue/Green.
In addition, I find that although certain people, non-INTP, may wear bright colors; e.g. guys wear pastel blue, pink, yellow, aquamarine shirts... and women wear neon yellow, pink, yellow, aquamarine dresses / skirts...
Often, this will bring out their 'emotional' state along with the colors they're wearing for the day. Seldom, but it does happen, do those people wearing such colors become angry... and it's funny to watch people in 'happy / cheerful' colors become upset because it doesn't go along with their appearance at all.
Now for INTP's, being most of the time we're in a walking ball of gloom mode or a sarcastic tone, our behavior and our 'aura' precedes and multiplies to the colors we wear. Black by default will amplify the void, depression, darkness especially if we're in a foul mood; doesn't even have to be 'cheerful or happy'...
We can be wearing a blue shirt and/or blue jeans, but if there's a black belt, black necklace, or spiked wriststraps, those colors and accessories supercedes the colors we're wearing and the 'black' aura would be dominant.
What this usually gives people as a first impression is usually NOT what they expect IF the person is just donning a 'dark' mask that day.
Hopefully this makes sense. Any feedback or thoughts to add on top of this? Thank you.
