Color psychology is an area that has had a vast amount of study and findings. Our early experiences with color have a long standing effect on our personal choices, as we experience these colors throughout our lives, affecting our behaviors and moods. There are some universal associations of certain colors being warm or cool, which tend to be culturally related.
For instance, blue, green and violet are experienced as COOL COLORS, because their place in nature rest with leaves, sea and sky. HOT COLORS that evoke stimulation are yellow, orange and red, through their association in nature with the heat of the sun and fire.

Whether we associate high-arousal colors of red, yellow and orange positively vs. low-arousal blues, greens and violets, can have a significant affect on our psychological reactions and subsequent behaviors. How we experience color has both physiological and psychological affects on human beings. It can affect risk-taking behavior such as gambling, or color vibrancy can make us feel secure and tranquil, vs. anxious and irritable.
