There may be more to your obsession with your favorite pen(s) than you realize. According to color theory, you may have been drawn to that pen (or pencil) based in part on the color of its ink, or the color used in its design.

Now we all know that colors play a large part in many of our everyday decisions, including which cars to drive, what clothes to wear, and even the homes we live in. But what you may not know or understand is why these particular colors appeal to you, and what they say about your personality.

So we thought we’d take a look at some of the most popular colors, as well as their psychological meanings.
