What Your Tie Colour Says About You


The colour of your tie is said to give away more information about you than most other accessories in your wardrobe. Why? As explained in this self development article, with suits generally being made in neutral colours, your tie or necktie is often used to give others a little peak into your true personality.

Ties – the history and basics

Ties are believed to have been ‘invented’ a few hundred years. They were first worn as brightly coloured personal fabrics around the neck to commemorate winning battles. Then soon became the symbol of a well-dressed man.

The necktie or tie is still a very traditional attire and is generally used to add something extra or even unique to the usual suit. There are many variables associated with ties such as:

* length - long or short
* girth – wide or thin
* knots – small or large
* fabric – polyester, silk, etc

Then there are the accessories for keeping the tie in place like:

* tie bars
* tie chains
* tie clips
* tie straps
* tie tacks

Ties – colour versus personality

However, the most striking thing about ties is their colour. Studies have been carried out that suggest that the colour of your tie could divulge interesting information about you such as your personality, behaviour, moods, outlook on life, etc. Ties can be multi-coloured but if you look mainly at the most popular base colours, here are some personality traits that have been found amongst wearers:

* Aqua – free spirit, youthful

* Black – classy, detached, dignified, elegant, mysterious, polished, serious, sharp, stylish

* Blue – articulate, calm, communicative, consistent, faithful, honest, intelligent, loyal, mature, persistent, quiet, tranquil, trustworthy

* Brown – approachable, determined, diligent, down to earth, humble, manly, patient, practical, reliable, serious, stable

* Gold – mature, mover and shaker, prosperous in all aspects of life

* Green – calm, efficient, enjoys new challenges, moves easily with change, relaxed, team player, thirst for knowledge

* Lime green – energetic, wealthy, virile

* Orange – content, enthusiastic, friendly

* Pink – approachable, compassionate, confident, enjoys fun, friendly, laid back

* Purple – artistic, creative, empathetic, expressive, passionate, visionary

* Red – bold, born leader, confident, determined, intelligent, mature, passionate, powerful, strong, victorious, warm, wealthy

* Yellow – authoritative, cheerful, energetic, enthusiastic, forthright, full of life, happy, hopeful, outgoing, positive, loves new challenges

And what about multicolored ties? These are said to be the boldest of them all, ensuring that you stand out in a crowd.

The connection between tie colour and personality might well just be a generalization but it is interesting to see what ‘first impression’ that tie of yours gives. If you were aware of these effects, from a self development point of view how would you use this information? Do you know how you are perceived purely by the colour of tie you wear? Also, do you choose a certain colour according to what results you wanted that day?

Tie colour and personality traits - summary

The colour of your tie can give away more information about you than you might realise, perhaps even a peak into your true personality. If you were aware of how people perceived you according to your tie colour, from a self development point of view it is quite possible to actively choose a specific colour to achieve the result you want in your business, work or social life.
