The Psychology of Color [Infographic]

I have always known that color has the power to influence your mood — for example, did you know that when a certain prison painted its walls pink, acts of agression and physical violence decreased significantly? — and was pleasantly surprised by some of the facts presented in this infographic by PaintersOfLouisville.com.

Case in point: you should not paint a baby’s room yellow, because it makes babies more prone to crying. (I can’t help but think of all the nurseries I’ve seen painted yellow.)

Or, you should stay away from red before, and during exams because it is “associated with the danger of failure in achievement contexts and can evoke avoidance motivation.”

Find out more in the infographic below! (Click to view large.)
