more about pink

Because pink is a pastel, it's often perceived as a rather shy or timid color, and at its most negative extreme, it's perceived as passive. Studies have actually shown that large amounts of pink can create physical weakness in people. However, pink can lessen feelings of irritation and aggression, helping one to feel loved and protected. As pink gets closer to red (fuchsia) or intensifies in hue (shocking pink), it becomes more and more dynamic and less submissive.
The sweet side of red, pink is tender, romantic and charming. Pink represents charm, grace, innocence, refinement and unselfish love, giving one a feeling of gentle warmth and nurturing. People who prefer pink tend to be contemplative; they study and analyze the best way to go about something before taking action. As a result, they may appear slow, but are just being dutifully methodical.
Emotionally soothing and calming, pink is also youth and playfulness as well as na�vet�. Often seen as overly optimistic, 'pink people' view the world in such a positive light it can be dazzling -- or offputting to others. Somewhat shy, they would like to be more active but fear hasty actions which may be seen as misguided because they fear being judged unfairly by others.
