Reader Responses to BlackBlack makes me feel warm, protected and safe.
When I wear black I often feel more confident and powerful. I walk taller and feel stronger
When someone asks, "Why did you pick black for your (fill in the blank)?," I always respond, "But it's a 'happy' black!" (It's either that or I choose "carefree gray".)
I find and have always found Black to be a very empowering colour.
Makes me look slimmer and classy.
Is black really considered a color? I love black. Im not evil or scary, but I am a red head and black looks good on me. I tell everyone 'I love black...one reason is because black is really not a color, so therefore, Iım really not here.'
Up until a very few years ago, I wore nothing black. I just never wanted to wear black, and I never felt that it was a colour for me.
However, during these intervening years, I have started to enjoy wearing black! I do not know how much of this is colour-consciousness or otherwise. I look back on when I wore no black, and I try to compare with nowadays. I have matured/changed/grown up - due to circumstances. I have changed my outlook on life - due to circumstances. I do think that the colours and the styles on offer, for a uniform, should be a big part of a personal decision about a job. But it may be one factor on your own tick-list of whether you would accept a job offer or not. I am sure I'm not the only person who has been changed (temporarily or otherwise) by circumstances.
Just wanted to give you my take on how the color black makes me feel. GREAT! I just love the color black. It goes with everything, it does seem to make me look slimmer, I feel dressed up even when I'm not, it matches everything and is fun to dress up or make sporty.
I do not associate it with evil or death or anything negative really.I wear it all year long even in the hot summer months here in Florida. These are just my thoughts on how the color black makes me feel. I love other colors as well but I seem to always be drawn to clothes especially with black in it.
The color black makes me feel poise and confidant when worn. This color gives me the feeling of control in life.
Well, if I de-program my mind from all the nonsense the color black is suppose to be, I feel powerful. Its only a color. The mind is the factor of evil or good. Because in the beginning of time out of blackness came light.
For me the color black makes me fell complete and calm. When I wear the color I fell safe and reassured, ready for anything.
I love black. I remember new black patent shoes when I was little with snow white socks. I've never felt so elegant. And an expensively made black suit! Wow! I love black. Pure, deep black. I used to always choose the black crayon as a child when the others wanted red. I outlined everything in black.
None of your items on your "black" list (LOL!) mentions contrast. But that's why I love black: I love contrast.
Black color make me sad and depressed. But it looks very smart for a "blonde" with very blond hair.
