    Favorite color to highlight with?

    What's your favorite color to highlight information with? Why?

    I get bored of the same color, so I switch it up each day. But I'd say I gravitate towards my pink highlighter. Pink makes boring information seem a little more fun. Even though blue is my favorite color, I use pink to highlight with more often.

    What about you? Do you have a specific highlighter per subject? Or do you just grab the tried and true yellow highlighter?

    Re: Favorite color to highlight with?

    Hi,

    I used to have 4 highlighters and would switch the color depending on what I was highlighting. It got too complicated and now I usually use just a pink or yellow highlighter. I also usually type or retype my notes so I don't end up needing a highlighter because the information sticks in my brain after I've written or typed it a second time.

    Hi Brittany8000,

    Interesting question! I do not think I have a favorite color to highlight with. If I had to pick a color, it would be yellow because that is the only color I use to highlight with.

    Happy belated New Year to both of you!

    Hey,

    Im a huge highligter fan. I use yellow and orange the most so the information can stand out to me. My teacher told me that we learn faster if there is some color within the text so I end up highlighting everything in the book lol. Considering that everything is important in nursing school. I use yellow for my normal notes and orange for exams/study guide. I think it’s best to stick with 2 colors. Multiple colors confuse me. Idk how people use different colors all the time. I have to adjust to what i use and it’s hard for me to change it or use other colors.

    Have a wonderful day!

    Hey. Anyone who glances at me knows my favorite color is purple. I’m obsessed. I didn’t earn the nickname Barney (the purple dinosaur) for nothing. And I have used a purple highlighter before but it’s too dark. I love the color but I can’t see my writing. Typically I just fish any Highlighter our of my bag, but I tend to use the yellow one more. I love how bright it is. The pink is a bit too dark for me sometimes and I like having something almost sparkle at me. I don’t know I think the yellow stands out the most.

    Hi Brittany!

    I tend to like using orange or green highlighters more than anything. They are so bold and bright and can really make the page pop. I used to work in a veterinary hospital and we used handwritten medical charts. We had to highlight certain things frequently, so I always grabbed the orange or green highlighters. The other girls used pink or yellow, so I felt that my notes in the chart stood out more.

    Now that I no longer work there, I only use highlighters when I take notes for school or am reading a text book. In those cases, I'll just use what is available to me.

    Thanks for the fun forum!

    I love to highlight in blue, purple, and pink. The yellow color has gotten old to me.

    Best,
    Lindsay!

    Hi Brittany!

    When I was little I used to want to have every single highlighter color I could get my hands on, and I'd use them all like a rainbow. Now, though, I like to stick to yellow! The other colors can be a little too dark to stand out as much as I'd like them to.

    Have a good one!!

    Re: Favorite color to highlight with?

    When studying for exams I used to highlight different sections with different colors. It always looked to pretty by the end and made studying more fun! Believe it or not, it actually helped my recall during exams too! (When taking the exam I would think...oh this is from the XX colored section!)

    Re: Favorite color to highlight with?

    Hello Brittany,

    I like to use a bright green highlighter. I've tried blue but it doesn't work as well.

    Many different shades of blue!! Because they are just so cheerful and vibrant, i just love looking at blue highlights.

    Re: Favorite color to highlight with?

    Hey Brittany, I like using yellow to highlight. For one, the color stands out without making it hard to read the text underneath. The other colors are sometimes too dark ( even if they might not be all that dark) for me to see the text. Second, I don't know about you guys, but I lose my highlighters a bit too often and it makes it easier to have just one color because then my backup one will be the same color as the previous one and it wont make my notes look so unorganized.

    Re: Favorite color to highlight with?

    I will highlight with a variety of colors, but for most purposes, I use yellow to get the job done. I don't highlight too often, so I don't get tired of the yellow.
