I know from studying these that it takes more than one color to describe you, in fact, it probably is quite a few colors that accurately represents everyone. In fact, I would say that my personality changes with my mood, my physical location (meaning I am more happy at home than at school) or the people that I am around. To correctly display my personality, it may take an entire rainbow of loom band colors.
My 9 year old son has taken the color meanings and made loom band bracelets using many colors. These make really neat gifts as the present is not just the time put into making the craft but also the thought and meaning behind the color choices. For example, My son has a boy that is a best friend to him and so he made a bracelet using the colors Black and Red because he wanted to express that they were best friends and they have a powerful friendship.
So perhaps your favorite colors are orange and pink, or maybe you want to express that you are feeling reliable and creative, either way have fun and start weaving with these color meanings and show them off with rainbow loom bands creations.
