Authority. Power. Stability.

Authority, power, stability, strength and intelligence are all associated with black. But it's just as likely to conjure feelings of evil, somberness and mourning. Black is a serious color that evokes strong emotions and can make people appear thinner, but it can just as easily overwhelm if used in excess.
