If someone asks me my favorite color, I usually don’t mention how it’s shifted over the years or how no one seemed to share my favorite color growing up or how I don’t necessarily have a favorite per se now, more favorite several hues and shades over others.
So I just say, “Blue.”
It’s a safe pick, especially when it comes to wardrobe choices (it goes with my eyes). Why, there’s even a quietly subversive children’s play about the color blue.
In any case, I knew I wasn’t alone. However, I didn’t realize how much so until I read this piece by Mark Ellwood for the BBC posted earlier this month. It delves deep into people’s love of colors across ages and cultures and why that might be.
Now I want some polling data on favorite dinosaurs.
