  1. What colors do you use in your home?

The outside of my home is light blue, and the inside walls are eggshell white, which make the room brighter and give a sense of cleanliness.

  1. What’s your favourite colour? [Why?]

I have a fascination with red. I love it more than any other colors because it expresses my personality.

Red symbolizes love, passion, desire, heat, romance /ˈrəʊmæns/ and power, friendship, and sacrifice.

Whenever I buy clothes or something, I usually choose this color.

  1. Do you like the same colours now as you did when you were younger? [Why/Why not?]

Of course, red has always been my favourite colour.

My mother is also really into red. I remember vividly that when I was a child, red attracted my attention. Almost everything she bought is red, like clothes, hats, shoes, etc. Since then, I have been in love with this colour and interestingly, it remains the same.

  1. Are there any colors that you do not like?

Yes, I’m not particularly a big fan of grey because I find it gloomy /ˈɡluːmi/ (am dam) and tedious /ˈtiːdiəs/. When I buy dresses or choose decorations, I try to avoid this color.

  1. What are the most popular colors in your country, and do these have meanings?

In Vietnam, the colors of the flag come into my mind immediately; they are red and yellow.

Yellow represents the communist party, while red is a symbol of the communist revolution.

Interestingly, red is also my favorite color.

  1. What can you learn about a person from the colours they like?

I believe colours often represent some personality traits, and this tells us a lot about a person.

For instance, people who are really into black are often artistic and sensitive, and those who love the green colour are always loyal and straightforward.

More scientifically speaking, the choice of colours defines someone’s preference and could be used to speculate on a person’s life experience and preferences.

  1. Do any colours have a special meaning in your culture?

White is considered the symbol of peace and red for violence and sacrifice in our culture.

Interestingly, red is sometimes referred to as the colour of friendship and sacrifice.

As far as I know, green in our country represents nature and prosperity.

while yellow is the colour of sunshine and happiness.

Finally, black is considered something gloomy and sad and relates to the dark past in history.
