Meaning of Colors and Psychology

Posted On:   |   Last Updated:   |   Posted in ,

You see colors in everything around you, every moment of the day—but do you ever stop to think about the impact each of those colors is having on you? Whether it’s the calming effect of blue skies and fields of green or the saliva-inducing red and yellow of your local fast-food chain, each color has a meaning and taps into emotions

Color can affect how we feel subconsciously. A color is a form of nonverbal communication. It is not a static energy and its meaning can change from one day to the next with any individual – it all depends on what energy they are expressing at that point in time.

 


Red is for energy, passion, and danger

Red is the color of energy, passion, action, ambition, and determination. It is also the color of anger and sexual passion.
Red is a very emotionally intense color. It enhances human metabolism, increases respiration rate, and raises blood pressure. It has very high visibility, which is why stop signs, stoplights, and fire equipment are usually painted red. In heraldry, red is used to indicate courage. It is a color found in many national flags.

 


Orange is for creativity, youth, and enthusiasm

Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation.
As a secondary color, orange combines the warmth and heat of red with the playfulness and joy of yellow. It attracts attention without being as daring as red and is used for warning signs like traffic cones and high-visibility clothing. It’s an energetic color that can bring to mind health and vitality, given its obvious link to oranges and vitamin C. It’s a youthful color as well, bringing an element of vibrancy and fun.

 


Yellow is for happiness, hope, and spontaneity

Yellow is the color of sunshine. It’s associated with joy, happiness, intellect, and energy.
Yellow is the color of the sun, smiley faces, and sunflowers. It’s a happy, youthful color, full of hope and positivity. It’s another color that grabs your attention and for that reason can also be used to signify caution, like red and orange.

 

Green is for nature, growth, and harmony—but also wealth and stability

Green is the color of balance and growth. It can mean both self-reliance as a positive and possessiveness as a negative, among many other meanings.
Green has great healing power. It is the most restful color for the human eye; it can improve vision. Green suggests stability and endurance. Sometimes green denotes a lack of experience; for example, a ‘greenhorn’ is a novice. In heraldry, green indicates growth and hope. Green, as opposed to red, means safety; it is the color of free passage in road traffic.

 


Blue is for calm, trust, and intelligence

Blue is the color of the sky and sea. It is often associated with depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. It is the most popular color in the world, both when it comes to personal preferences (for both genders) and usage in business logos. It’s the go-to color for trusted, corporate institutions, often in combination with a mature grey.

 

Purple is for luxury, mystery, and spirituality

Purple is an interesting color: it’s both warm and cool. It combines the stability of blue and the energy of red. Purple is associated with royalty. It symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, and ambition. It conveys wealth and extravagance. Purple is associated with wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery, and magic.

 


Pink is for femininity, playfulness, and romance

Pink is feminine and romantic, affectionate and intimate, thoughtful, and caring. It tones down the physical passion of red replacing it with a gentle loving energy. Pink can also remind you of earlier childhood memories, associated with nurturing and comfort from your mother or a mother figure.
