Type 1 women (and men) sometimes see their upbeat, fun nature as immature and flaky. Though this perception is incorrect, they will often try to look more serious and intelligent by wearing black. Unfortunately, this tactic backfires. The still, solid nature of the color black just accentuates their natural buoyancy and can make them look silly. What they are presenting to the world is in direct opposition to their true nature.
Type 2 women (and men) will wear black because it feels safe. These people have a lower, more subtle nature, and black is a comfortable fall-back. However, it is too stark for their soft, gentle nature.
Type 3 women (and men) will wear black because it is seen as a “power” color. These people with their confident natures want to appear independent and strong. However, black is a color with no movement–it is completely still. Black is in direct opposition to the high, driven energy of a Type 3 person. It also has a tendency to make them look older.
Type 4 women (and men) have the most still, solid nature of all the types. For this reason, black compliments them perfectly. Their bold, serious nature harmonizes perfectly with the color black. When they wear black, who they are on the inside is reflected by what they wear on the outside.
Now I know you are asking two questions:
- Which type am I?
- What am I supposed to wear if I can’t wear black?
Let me answer the second question first. For Types 1, 2, and 3, there are colors that can substitute for black. They will compliment your true nature rather than fight with it. Some of these colors are navy blue, chocolate brown, charcoal grey, and even a dark maroon. The colors that are best for you will depend on your type.
