He found that color preferences are however subjective. This allows color perception to be measured by using test colors. Lüscher believed that color selections are guided in an unconscious manner and reveal a person as they really are, not as they perceive themselves or would like to be perceived. He found that there are 8 colors that represent one’s personality.

Green stands for “Elasticity of Will” passive, persistence, self-esteem/assertion, pride, control

Blue represents “Depth of Feeling” passive, concentric, tranquility, calm, tenderness

Red is a signal for “Force of Will” competitive, action, desire, excitement, sexuality

Yellow stands for “Spontaneity” active, projective, aspiring, expectancy, exhilaration

Purple reflects "power, royalty, nobility, spirituality" elegance, sophistication, artificial, luxury, mystery, royalty, elegance, magic

Black can look like "Nothingness", renunciation, surrender or relinquishment (note: it also stands for luxury, minimalizm and focus

Grey can easily show "non-involvement and concealment"

Brown speaks to the senses - it indicates the body's condition, earth and substance
