This question, apparently favoured by US oil company Hess, may seem innocuous enough — an ice-breaker rather than a crucial moment. And indeed, if it shows up early in the discussion, an in-depth answer is probably inappropriate. Just mention yellow and move in.
If the question appears later, however, or your four-word answer is followed up with “why?”, then you’ll need to offer a little more detail. In that context, tying the colour to a positive attribute might make sense: “I like red because it really energises me” or “I like blue because it keeps me calm and helps me concentrate.”
How would you answer the question?
