We create an interior for the color of personality: an unusual study and comments by a psychologist


Do you want to unmistakably choose the style of the interior,which is right for you? To do this, it is enough to find out which psychological type you belong to - red, orange, yellow or green.Doctor of Science and an experienced intuitive physician Carol Ritberger did painstaking work, during which she found out that there are four basic personality colors that show how people behave in a given situation, how they solve problems and how they communicate with other people. The color of the personality directly affects the interior in which it is preferable for a person to live and work, to feel as comfortable as possible. Danila Gulyaev, consultant psychologist, narrative therapist: - To understand what kind of home interior you need by referring yourself to a certain psychological type is a tempting idea. Probably, if you got acquainted with some typology, and you have a clear recognition - "oh, this is about me!", Then this may well be a guideline for understanding what kind of interior you need. But there are two big questions here. First, is it possible to reduce all the diversity of your personality to some type? Secondly, is the choice of the interior necessarily so conditioned by the "psychological type"? There is research that suggests that we tend to exaggerate the influence of stable personality traits on our choices. Besides traits and types, there are other landmarks that can help you when planning your home. In particular, each of us has an idea of ​​ourselves - an image of ourselves, ideas at our own expense. This is sometimes called the "self-concept", sometimes the "self-image." These ideas often have a greater impact on our lives than "objective" traits. The way we present ourselves, the way we feel, the way we behave. For example, people who consider themselves confident are more likely to behave confidently.

1. Red persons

This category of people can be characterized as follows:"If I want something, I will definitely achieve it." Reds are full of surprises, it's hard to figure out what's on their minds and what they expect from you. They divide the world into black and white. For them, the gaps are insignificant, there is only a start and an end point. Nevertheless, such individuals at work are ready to give all their best, are distinguished by decisiveness and assertiveness. They are good leaders, but they must control everything and everywhere. Luxurious classic interiors, art deco, minimalism or contemporary are most suitable for them. They prefer everything expensive and of high quality, the price for them fades into the background. A home should be extravagant, austere and sophisticated in order to show the exclusivity of its taste. Preferred materials: leather, metal and exclusive wood species.

2. Orange people

Their motto is “let's live together”.Orange personalities are great peacemakers and teachers. Their meaning in life is caring for people. Their inherent sense of community requires them to be constantly involved in social activities. Being kind, loyal, sympathetic friends, good listeners and socially responsible people, they always strive to create an atmosphere of cooperation and harmony. They are characterized by a warm and cozy interior in Scandinavian, Mediterranean or eco-style, as well as finishing in warm pastel colors. The use of natural stone and any kind of wood should create comfort not only for oranges, but also for their guests.

3. Yellow persons

"Do better than others" is just such a sloganinherent in this type of people. Strong leaders and deep thinkers, they are used to solving problems that others cannot. Based on personal experience and high competence in completing tasks, they love to demonstrate the difference between their work and the work of others. And no matter how difficult the task is, for the yellow ones it is a challenge that they will gladly accept. Bright ethnic or pop-art interiors with unusual solutions are combined with these personalities in the best possible way. It doesn't matter what materials - the main thing is that it is harmonious.

4. Green personality

They prefer to think that "progress cannot be stopped."Dreamers with a rich imagination, this personality type continues to grow and thrive through the use of their creativity. They are unrivaled innovators in the creation of new products, applications and services. Relying on their intuition, sometimes ignoring logic, greens often win. These fun and emotional enthusiasts want to be a catalyst for change. Of course, their interior is high-tech and eclectic, from where you can draw inspiration and energy. An integral part of the green house will be high-tech and environmentally friendly materials, as well as the latest developments in design and architecture. If you see a wind generator on the roof of a private house, you can already accurately determine the color of the owner's personality. Danila Gulyaev, consultant psychologist, narrativetherapist: - Home interior is, in a sense, a continuation of the “self-concept”. It can reflect the idea of ​​what kind of house I want to live in, how I see and feel myself. And also how I want to see and feel myself - planning the future home allows you to create and develop your preferred image. It is even possible that the interior, built for the future itself, as if "for growth", can allow and internally get closer to what you want to be. After all, the surrounding space affects both our feelings and behavior. This can be done in the form of a self-portrait in your future home - painted or verbal. You can try to describe in detail: what am I? what's around me? what does it look like? how do I want to feel there? This does not mean that it is necessary to draw "castles in the air", something fantastic. The preferred self-image is not necessarily ideal. It may well be realistic - it just takes into account the changes that you want to bring to your life, to your home. The same applies to the image of the family, if we are talking about the family hearth - after all, the family also has an “image of us” and “we-concept”, which can be introduced into the arrangement of the future interior. For example, in the form of a collective family portrait in a common future home.,,
