One of the great things about flowers is the meanings that they convey. When you give your loved one a camera or a TV, there are no hidden meanings involved. The gift is straightforward and easily understood with no additional meaning or explanation of your personality type. The same cannot be said of flowers. When you give your lover a bowl full of rich red roses, you are conveying your love and devotion. If you choose yellow roses instead, you personality type values friendship. That is just one example of how flowers reflect meaning and what they say about your personality type, and one reason why you need to understand the hidden language behind your favorite floral gift choices.

The flowers you give says a lot about you, but your favorite varieties can have their own hidden meanings. In many ways your favorite flower is a reflection of your unique taste and personality type.
