I purchased my copy of The Language of Color over ten years ago and *still* dig it out from time to time for fun and insight. I love it! Written by a former art instructor, Dorothee Mella discovered trends in her students' color preferences. Intrigued, she decided to work directly with many people to find correlations based on observation to develop this book. (The approach has no metaphysical nor occult origin, and it is NOT a New Age book as one might suspect. Anyone can use it regardless of belief system.) Those on more of the intuitive/artsy side and interested in self-insight would especially enjoy The Language of Color.
The main feature is a simple, fourteen question color test called SICA (Self-Image Color Analysis). There are twenty possible color categories to chose from for your answers to each question. These colors ranges even include achromatics and basic metallics (gold and silver). The result is an accurate personality and mood profile which is easily decoded by the book's answers. It gives insight into one's identity, inspiration, motivation, stresses, and all other sorts of helpful things!
Out of interest, I've learned about several psych & personality "typing" systems over the years. With this approach, however, rather than falling into one of a short number of "types", the SICA really provides a very unique portrait from over 1.6 quintillion possible combination results! The interpretations for each answer are straightforward, fast and easy.
The rest of this book explains how to utilize one's personal portrait colors for enhanced communication, self-actualization, and even decorating various environments with color from your office to your bathroom! There are charts and lists explaining color symbolism and images for business, the messages you give according to what colors you wear, and best color recommendations for your wardrobe according to your SICA. I especially enjoyed her case examples of unhappy people who chose new careers, improved relationships and thus changed their lives after their personal Self-Image Color Analyses. Fun, fast, accurate - The Language of Color is a rare and fun find, a real treasure in the legacy of color research.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Fun but Not Accurate 5 août 2009
Par Meri - Publié sur Amazon.com

Dorothee Mella has insightful ideas, but applies them inaccurately with archaic and biased color stereotypes. Her book is very fun to read but provides less information about yourself than she promises. She does, however, show you how to practically incorporate needed colors where it may be difficult.

I usually give authors the benefit of the doubt but her quiz analysis is vague and phrased in such a way that any answer would apply. So much time is spent discussing what you'll discover about yourself. But many of the quiz results are a trite, one word sentence analysis. I also found the results of the quiz to be unusually inaccurate when my friends and I took them.

She understands the importance of color as a powerful tool. She has insightful ideas of how colors can be applied to your psyche. For example, how your yuck color reflects an aspect of yourself where you are weak. This is great, except she make seems to use biased and archaic stereotypes of colors. For instance:

--She assumes anything related to the color Gold is about finances and wealth. The actual psychological influence of gold is warmth, beauty and power.

--She views Black as depressing and it means you're better off alone than with a partner. She fails to see the security and calm that many people are attracted to in the color black.

--She makes the mistake of applying an object in the world to the color. Like mint green and apple green. Your feelings about the color is now swayed toward your emotions for the object, not the color. I've never liked mint so its hard for me to have an unbiased opinion about the color the way she has written it.

My friends have difficulty answering simply: "What is your favorite color?" They would have a tough time with her questions like:
which color represents you the best, which is different from but not conflicting with your first color, which color unifies the other colors, which color harmonizes with your first color, which color motivates all those colors.

I would recommend the book Life Colors by Pamala Oslie. People of all kinds have gotten sucked into this book when I bring it with me. Everyone who has taken her quiz finds it incredibly accurate. I have never seen this amount of accuracy in a quiz or book before. So far 15 people around me have asked me to do the quiz with them and all of them were inspired by the answers. Many have asked to borrow my book and have bought the book themselves afterwards. I've loved colors all my life and no one has been this interested in colors before. Its been a joy to learn about my friends and acquaintances so thoroughly through the Life Colors book. The Language of Color was fun but not so accurate.

If you like colors, buy Life Colors not The Language of Color.

I actually purchased this book first in 1990 at a book sale in the library because I thought it was kind of interesting. After I began to take the test and research the color's meanings, I found myself quite hooked. I managed to buy a second copy five or six years later, after my old copy had become totally overused. Although there are some things I disagree with, I've found her meanings to be quite accurate, even in so far as for assisting healings. This is a simple test with twenty colors.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Includes a fun but powerful color quiz for self-improvement 2 juillet 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book's best feature is a color quiz that turns out to be a powerful tool for understanding your own psychological makeup--both the long view and the present-moment snapshot. I first took it in 1993, then again in 1997, and was shocked to see how much this test revealed to me about me, now that I can look back at who I was then and who I am now. It was eerily accurate! So I highly recommend this book, not only for people studying color theory, but for anyone who wants a deep personal profile and insight--all by yourself, in the privacy of your own room

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A cornucopia of color insights 26 mars 1999

The first time I read this book, it was on a loan from a dear friend! I discovered a great deal about my psyche, my personality, and what makes me tick as an individual! I would recommend this read to anyone wanting to discover who they are in depth. Never before had I found such an accurate and detailed view on how color effects our lives, actions, and emotional states! Dorothee Mella is an unequalled color authority. She really knows her stuff!
