Color Blind

The Unprotected Group

Mere color, unspoiled by meaning, and unallied with definite form, can speak to the soul
in a thousand different ways.—Oscar Wilde (Irish poet and dramatist)

HAVE YOU EVER seen people who look like they got dressed in the dark? They probably did. Many of those wacky-looking characters end up in my reception area. An interview later, I realize that the clothing and the colors they are wearing aren’t really indicative at all of who they are. It turns out they are as normal as any person can be. I am truly baffled at how intimidating and confusing color can be. Trust me, once you understand and befriend color, your interview wardrobe will have the punch it so desperately deserves. Worn properly, color will confidently underscore your verbal and nonverbal communication. It will mirror your personality and shave pounds off your rear end. However, handled incorrectly, color will become your foe; it will go toe to toe with your distinct natural coloring and play nasty tricks on you. And color is gender neutral, as Donald Trump has publicly proven through his signature pink-shirt-and-tie getup.
