    Ahh, yes, I agree with the previous commenter…colors have such wide ranging cultural significance, personal associations, and symbolic meanings that it’s difficult to really make any of these concepts stick. Sure, colors in the red family might stimulate hominid brains more than those in the blue/greens…but anything more specific than that does seem a bit of a reach.

    My emotion right now is rage for whoever decided to create this graphic with a hard to read gray font on a gray background.

    As an interior designer, I believe the analysis of color to be somewhat arbitrary. Colors are affected by the amount of light, openness, and furnishings, so attributing emotions to certain colors may be accurate in studies, in real homes I’ve seen strong colors that are fabulous, and not limited to “expected” uses. The other challenge I have with the above is the designation of gender to certain colors. While that may be what studies show, I have found that much of what we are comfortable with is due to how we were taught as we grew up. We are comfortable with what is familiar to us. It’s ok to break “the rules” .
