      It changes depending on my mood. I quite like purple at the moment.

      When I was 5 or 6 it was black (technically not a colour, I know) – now I’m not so sure. I like blue.

      When I think about particles I have definite colours in my head for them. They don’t correspond to anything, it’s just an association, but it’s very strong.

      neutron: blue
      proton: green
      electron: also blue, slightly brighter
      muon (heavy electron): yellow
      tau (really heavy electron): orange
      neutrino (particle that doesn’t interact much): dark blue or grey
