Default Colors for Adjectives

Do you tend to associate colors with adjectives? Some I think we all do; natural tends to be green and brown. Aquatic of course would be blues. Purity would be white.

But what about other adjectives? Like fast? Or smart? Or dumb?

Fast = red. No, it's not ORKS! it's ferrari - ive grown up with schumacher (?) dominating F1 and so red equates to speed.

Smart = Orange. Although I can't put my finger on as to why...

Dumb = Forest green. Again - don't know why.

Bravery = red.

Beauty = Purple.

This would be better if we were given a list of adjectives, and told what color comes to mind. When I think, "Red," I don't think of an adjective, I think... "red".

That'd be cool. I was just wondering about it, since I was throwing together a couple web designs.
