colourful personality

Pre-script :  Q1 think of a very colourful person you know !  Q2 – at what periodicity do women normally buy a dupatta ?? 

Dresses are the increasing rage.  Dupatta is worn in many regional styles as a symbol of modesty. While that symbolism still continues, many today wear it as  a decorative accessory. 

‘Whenever you see colour, think of us’, were the catchy lines of a famous paint brand. By some statistics, in  the 1970’s, people were exposed to about 5 to 10 Advts  per day. At present, people see roughly not less than 500 per day and those who browse see perhaps 5000 or more !!     There are 5.3 trillion display ads shown online every year.   

Colour is simply light of different wavelengths and frequencies and light is just one form of energy that we can actually see that is made up from photons. Color, is the physical phenomenon of light or visual perception associated with the various wavelengths in the visible portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. As a sensation experienced by humans and some animals, perception of color is a complex neurophysiological process. 

The first imagination of colourful is rainbow !!  Colourful is an adjective that means something that has varied bright colours or someone who is quite attractive. Colourful means lively, spirited, strong, interesting, unique, many facets or complex. Possibly confrontational and rebellious.    

Not all thoughts are logical – some one wrote that   the colour of your phone is a reflection of your personality. Most people, who do not look at smartphones as anything beyond a mere device, often opt for the basic black and white colours that every smartphone comes in. However, there are  people who like colourful phones and  smartphone brands these days are coming up with different colours. 

A colourful character is a person who behaves in an interesting and amusing way. A colourful character, likes and exhibits  extravagant gestures.  It is not merely the outfit colours that are worn but the personality that is exhibited.  People who are typically considered to be colorful may be described as outgoing, expressive, and lively. They enjoy being the center of attention and may have a strong sense of personal style. Colorful personalities often are very passionate about their interests. While some people may find colorful personalities to be overwhelming, others may appreciate their energy and enthusiasm. 

The Western World dissects even common things and read in Psychlogy magazine that -    Personality disorders are long-standing, deeply ingrained patterns of behaving and relating. The traditional diagnostic view sees them as discrete categories that people either do or do not fit into.  The "colorful" personality is a subclinical form of histrionic personality disorder, which refers to a pattern of attention-seeking behavior featuring exaggerated, even theatrical displays of emotion and shallow relationships. 

Personality disorders were once thought to be categorically distinct from normal personality, but today many psychologists prefer to view them as on a continuum with normal personality traits. Hence, personality psychologists now refer to "subclinical" manifestations of things like psychopathy and narcissism as less extreme versions of what are usually considered personality disorders.
