List of colors and their psychological effect

Below is a list of common colors and their psychological effects:

Psychology of Black : On Color psychology, black reflects authority and power but it could also represent an evil notion for some people. In my book How to make someone fall in love with you I explained how wearing black clothes can attract those who love to be with an authoritative person. By wearing black often in the presence of those people they may start to admire you. Black could make you appear thinner and that’s why it's a good choice if you think that you are overweight. Black can also indicate that you are independent.

Psychology of Red: red is a captivating color that reflects energy, power and strength. Red is a very eye catching color and this makes it useful in case you want to draw some attention to yourself. The Red color results in fast heartbeat and breathing rate as it stimulates the nervous system thus overusing it might result in irritation.

Psychology of Blue : staying in a blue room can make you feel calmer and more relaxed,however, blue could also be depressing if it was over used. When you wear blue you leave an impression that you are loyal and trust worthy. It's recommended that you wear blue in job interviews because the interviewer will unconsciously trust you more provided that all other factors are constant.

Psychology of White : white reflects innocence and purity. The fact that its the color used for the dresses of brides strengthens this belief.

Psychology of Green : Green is known as a relaxing color. Green can make you more relaxed and can help make vision more clear and that’s one of the reasons why factory walls are painted in green. Staying in a green room or browsing a green website can be more unwinding and relaxing for people.

Psychology of Yellow : yellow is an irritating color. Making use of it's agitating effect some takeaway restaurants paint its walls in yellow in order not to let customers stay for long periods inside of the restaurant because of wanting to free up more space for other customers (see restaurant's color psychology). Just like red, yellow can catch attention, increase the heart rates and enhance metabolism. Most of those who wear yellow are optimists.

Psychology of Purple : purple is a mixture of red and blue. Purple combines both the power of red and the calmness tranquil effect of blue. Purple clothes could reflect elegance, wealth and authority.

Psychology of Pink : pink reflects innocence and kindness. When you want to ask for help head for someone who is wearing pink or white.
