Colour Preference Testing

Colour preference tests have been devised in order to gain useful information on how people will react to certain colours in given situations, and as a means of personality analysis. The luscher colour test, devised by Dr Max Lusher, is perhaps the best known personality test.
The basic Luscher test involves placing 8 set colours in order of preference and without reference to external considerations, for example, would that colour look nice as an item of clothing. According to Luscher, this allows a true reflection of your colour needs and preferences. Once the selections have been made the position of each colour (1-8) would be analysed to reveal the main personality traits.

This information has been influenced by a leaflet produced by the SDC Colour Museum an educational activity of The Society of Dyers and Colourists
