The way we present ourselves to the world can say a lot about our personalities. The clothes we wear, the cars we drive, and the hairstyles we choose are extremely revealing.

I’ve seen many different personality tests, like this one that says your fears can reveal secrets about you, and separately, I know many people who have asked, “What is the best hair color for me?”

I never put the two together, but that’s what this personality test does. I had no idea that the hair color we are drawn to could say so much about our personalities. When I saw how accurate mine was, I couldn’t believe it.

Rose Weitz, a women and gender studies professor at Arizona State University writes that hair color “becomes a reflection of who that person is, and a sign of our identity.” There is a direct correlation between our hair color preference and who we are deep down.

Color expert Jacob Olesen writes that science has proven that hair color “actually influences our blood pressure. So, if you color your hair… you will likely influence your behavior and, after awhile, even adopt the stereotypes associated with it.”

So I can actually alter my personality by changing hair dye colors? Naturally I was fascinated to see what each of these different hair color ideas revealed and how the color I’m most drawn to could affect my behavior.

Scroll through this color quiz to see what the hair color you are most taken in by means about your personality.

Even in relationships, brown hair implies reliability. A study in Men’s Health found that “men are more likely to marry a brunette.
