MANY YEARS AGO I GAVE A PRESENTATION AT MEI COMPANY TO EXPLAIN HOW CERTAIN COLORS HAVE MEANING TO CERTAIN COUNTRYMEN AND HOW THEY GENERALLY EFFECT THE PSYCHOLOGY AND MOOD OF OTHERS!! FOR EXAMPLE, THE CHINESE WEAR RED A LOT BC IS SIGNIFIES CELEBRATION AND LUCK=WHY THE WOMEN OF CNBC WERE WEARING IT TO PUSH THE BAD FAKEBOOK STOCKS ON THE UNSUSPECTING PUBLIC!! WOMEN WEAR COLORS TO ILLICIT CERTAIN RESPONSES FROM PEOPLE SEW IF AND WEN YUE GET YOUR “COLOURS DONE” DON’T ONLEE WEAR THE COLORS THAT ARE MOST FLATTERING TO YOUR SKIN/HAIR/BODY TYPE BC THAT WILL NOT DELIVER THE RESPONSE THAT YUE ARE LOOKING FOR!! 🙂
CASE IN POINT: TELETUBBY WOMEN OFTEN SPEAK WITH A SINGSONG BABYVOICE THAT IS SUGARY SWEET AND WEAR THE COLOR RED TOO MUCH IN ORDER TO MAKE UP FOR THEIR MANY DISADVANTAGES IN SOCIETY. RED LIPSTICK, RED NAILS, RED DRESS!! THEY ALSO DIE THEIR HAIR MAINLY PLATINUM BLONDE OR RED!! LOOK AROUND AND YUE WILL SEA WATT I MEAN!! THE LIGHTER THE HAIR THE BIGGER THE FACE LOOKS=THE LESS YUE FOCUS ON THE OBESE BODY!! 🙂
THERE IS ALSO SOUND THERAPY, SCENT THERAPY, TOUCH THERAPY, TASTE THERAPY, MIND THERAPY AND SOUL THERAPY WHICH I WILL COVER ON MEI BLOG.
