Preface
The introduction of hope and poison may be the same color? If you ask "what is the color of hope", most people will answer "green". If we ask "what color is the poison", most people will answer "green". Green reminiscent of bitter and astringent taste. But if you ask "which color can play a calming effect", the answer is still "green". The authors conducted a large-scale survey, asked 1888 men and women. In the questionnaire, the author according to different emotion and experience category lists several concepts, such as "what is the color of love", "hate is what color", at the same time, was also out of color, comfortable color, proud as Lucifer color, aromatic, beyond the conventional color color until it is anger color, color, trust ambiguous color presents different problems. Asked in accordance with these concepts and problems will be blue, brown, yellow, gold, gray, green, orange, pink, red, purple, black, silver, white, 13 kinds of color sequence. Survey conducted in written form, is not anonymous. Asked to give 40 concepts of colors in order to answer questions, a total of 200 pieces of questionnaire in. Presentation and explanation of this book is the results of the investigation, and the investigation results of the vast majority of is directly reflected in the first part of the chromatographic illustrations. Each of the colors we all have some special feeling? The answer is no, because our emotions more than color. Red is the color of love, but also hate the color. So it is not only important to the often mentioned colors -- we have every kind of emotion and a variety of colors together, these colors complement each other, mutual explanation. On behalf of the love except the red and pink, with red and black symbol of hatred. If you ask "what color is the color of happiness", the most common answer is "red" and "gold", third colors of happiness is "green". Non main color decision basic color effect. Color how to arouse such a different feeling? We will each color and diverse experience together. We note that some color to the situation will remind us of the experience to. This situation can tell us some color is real or symbolic, some color is traditional and creative. The situation that the effects of colors. The book will be from the various effects of color to explore all the color. The color of the 1 psychological effect evokes natural, unconscious reaction association. The psychological effect is produced to color culture? It comes from experience, these experiences we often experience, so that it has become a part of our inner world. On the green, and if we see the red strawberry together green strawberry, we will not help with immature things, the color is not mature is summarized as the color of youth: "hard of hearing or the green" is used to describe the smell of the baby, not young people through the world. Green in the road traffic effect is different, here the green with a positive significance in our subconscious. If the experience of green in nature, its effect is also different: green into healthy color, full of vigour of color. Green is a symbol of health, because we went to the green nature to recuperate and build up strength. All the features ascribed to color are derived from experience. Between the red and blue green between extreme, so play a calming effect, which belongs to the neutral. Red is warm, cool blue, green and soft. Red appears close to the blue sky, far like, green in the middle, not far not near. In the spirit of the color measurement, peace and balance to the green represents the psychological is located in the middle of the. The concept of color 2 symbolic effect can be given true color do not have. The effect of color symbol is how to generate? They also derived from experience. Only this kind of experience is rarely individuals, mostly from hundreds of years of traditional. Why hope is green? Hope is a kind of emotion in the short period, people will hope and spring. This is also reflected in the language: like seed germination in winter, in the dark days after germination of new hope in the hearts. In the middle ages with the same analogy, when people used the green symbol of budding love. Until today we say no to a hate people to "green", that means we won't be friendly to the person. And yellow together, green has become a symbol of jealousy color, for example some people envy turned green. Handed down experience tells us: always angry people will suffer from disease of gallbladder, gallbladder is yellow green. The symbolic effect produced in some experience in general, the psychological effects of color abstraction. Therefore the psychological effect and the symbolic effect exists in close contact. Different ways of cultural effect exist in different culture determines the color effect of different. In Europe, the green is the scenery in a common color, and for the living in the desert nation,Green is the color, so green is the Islamic holy color in. The Egyptian supreme status of God has a green skin. In the green symbol of noble culture, green is considered a masculine color. The most respected of the colors in various cultures is a masculine color, second color is female. Many color effect with national characteristics. If you describe is a British "blue", it means that this is a always melancholy and moody man  and describe a German "blue", said the man was drunk. This book will origin of those with ethnic characteristics of the color significance to explain, so you can wake up again those ignored by our consciousness of color effect. Has a special symbolic meaning political effect in the political field color. The ancient badge and flag color is the color in the dynasty, even though the modern flag and emblem also marks the power relationship between politics and religion. Red is a banner of the revolution of the color, is the basic color flags all socialist countries. Green is the color of the divine in Islam, is the basic color of all Islamic state flag. Green is green island Irish national flag colors. In the Irish Green White Orange tricolour, green symbolizes the Catholic, Protestant 奥拉宁 orange as a royal color symbolizes the Protestant, combination of green, white, orange three colors that marks the United Irish state and power. So is the combination of the German flag in the black, red, gold tricolor. The traditional effect seemingly irrational effect of color and pigment extraction process often old and dyeing of. Why vegetables usually colors -- green will let us think of poison green? Before the green pigment painting containing arsenic. Napoleon most likes the color is green, and this was his disaster: wet St. Helena Island climate to evaporate green wallpaper of toxic substances, Napoleon finally died of chronic arsenic poisoning. Green reminiscent of toxic substances, this point has been retained. In the past hundreds of years, not every kind of color can be arbitrary use of color, some expensive, need to printing and dyeing process of complicated. The decision to dress the color is not the taste, but the money. Pigment printing and dyeing expensive expensive fabrics, cheap fabric dyes natural low prices. Dark green is a kind of cheap color, so the kings and nobles of Europe is not wear green clothes. But the simple felt and tweed mostly dyed green, "planning" in the green table this idiom concerned with this: before the table and desk mat is deep green, this idiom meaning behind closed doors, unrealistic. In the language we use today still contains many forgotten traditions. "Blue" and "making blue" the two idioms originated in ancient dyeing method. As a historical background for the traditional effect annotations. The creative results here we talk about how to give the new color effect: why is Wine bottle green, never dark red? Why the monster and Mars always green? If the creative expressions of feelings, love can even be poison that green. On the principle of color used creatively in "blue" in this chapter in section eighteenth will detail. The same color is always have different effect. Even if we feel the tone is defined by the situation at the time. Symbol of hope green and poison green may be the same green? Most of the people surveyed think: absolutely not! Though hope is green, such as Turquoise as green or green May, but it is not the kind of green poison. No one is to describe the cucumber green gem green, the artichoke green described as army green. Conversely, although spinach green emerald green and indeed is the same, but no one would describe the emerald green to green spinach. Although the painter to the goddess of hope to wear bright green clothes, but none of them will be called the green poison green, but green May -- despite the tone is the same. Who will be there to British painter Georg Frederic watts  metaphor the hope when the green  see Figure 22  as a typical example of hope green? As everyone knows, the Eskimos have a lot of white name, this looks exotic, but it is not difficult to understand, because the Eskimos must recognize direction in a white world. Surprised when our unique world of Eskimo, perhaps we forget that in every language of each color has a lot of names. A person know how much depends on the color, he had many dealings with color. The artist of the color than the dentist, and can more accurately describe the nuances of color. In many occupation, can play a vital role in special color master knowledge. Color difference emerald price, so the jeweler can see multiple levels between medium green and dark green. The jeweler can accurately describe the components of a different color: Yellow component of green tourmaline in deep green than yellow component emerald weight. Leather goods and timber merchants can speak a variety of brown color. The sale of writing and painting paper merchants to distinguish different white and eskimo. In Germany, as everyone knows, the green color is the color change of 40 kinds of  red nearly 100. In order to enrich the understanding of a riot of colours colors, books are accompanied by marked lists various color name in front of each chapter, name including paints. One's favorite color can show which of his character? Perhaps everyone understood as psychoanalysis called a color test, the tested has a person needs to be some small colored cards are classified according to their own preferences. This claim can according to some color in order to reveal the whole chromatographic personality, but many people are puzzled. The fact is that: emotion, personality all can associate with the color, the color of multi-level symbolism can give all the important issues to provide reference points. On the other hand, the psychology of science no longer recognize this kind of color test, the test result was thought to be unreliable, which disappointed a lot of people, but it is also true. The reason is: the human emotion, personality characteristics and major problems of far more than the color, the color test onFor each color there are many explanations. This means that: different test can give different interpretations of the same color sequence. Therefore, the test results is not accurate, so that can not make scientific judgments. But as the prophecy, inaccurate interpretation also can give important enlightenment. Interested in colour test can find all the interpretation of color in the book of the background knowledge, is not voluntary and forced to participate in the test color people can find out how to show the best character description  see "grey" fifth  section 6. A man like colors can indicate what he likes in daily life? A custom colors for color problem is the problem of. In fact, any kind of color are not from a certain function and independence. 20% of women and men say red is the color you like, but no matter what kind of red, almost no one of men willing to wear a red suit, only a minority of women wearing a red dress, wearing a red silk stockings female is less. Red is a warm color, however, the red wallpaper is not liked by others. Who would want a red desk, a red refrigerator or a red bell? Even the car color is also not statistically reflect people of color preferences. There is a typical color preferences for color each scope of use. Each color is "beautiful", but if you use the wrong place, or improper meaning together, then all the colours will lose their beauty. Only by understanding the meaning of a color of all people, to distinguish the beautiful red and ugly red, can distinguish dull green and exaggerated green. More meaning about color, judge for the better of their effects. How to explain the analysis of color about the survey results using blue, Brown - yellow - Gold - gray - Green - Orange - Pink - Red Black Silver violet white 13 colors are listed in each questionnaire. In order not to affect the color of the interviewee's, all colors are used in the form of text lists. Scope of the survey includes all independent psychological effect of color color. Even the often overlooked, orange, pink, gray, brown, mixed color and gold, silver and other metal color such as also has independent significance, and is not replaced by other colors. ---------------------------------------------- book analyses the people of color feel with 200 concepts, 1888 people made answer to 40 concepts. In the respondents in the age is the smallest 14 years old, the biggest 83 years old. The questionnaire by the respondents to fill out the form, as the bearer. If a concept is not decided the only color or not willing to make the only answer, can fill in two colors. Although the number of accepted the investigation of many, but the number of some of the colors mentioned no more than 5% of the surveyed, these color book did not adopt. This is done in order to survey results will be better together. Explain the process in a variety of colors of a concept, the main color to let people understand the concept of dominant how, than for each color to explain important. By 5% the number below the respondents who answered the color is not representative, it is difficult to explain, because for a color sequence there are too many possible reasons. For example: answer the color of love is one of the few white thought may be pure or a cold heart, or take love as without personal feelings, or want to make their own very personality, etc.. And it is in the concept of love, there is an unusual answer the highest proportion. The main color is very clear: 70% of the people think that red, 8% of the people think that is pink, but the remaining 22% of the people the answer is distributed from white to black, from gold to purple in color. While the other 199 answers were not so many and varied, the smallest proportion of about 10% in average. In order to statistics of amateur sake, perhaps should also explain why these percentages have never added to 100%. The difference between the 100% display unusual in every color in the proportion of the answer. Only by chromatography on board in order to make a unified graphical and survey results will be back to 100%. In order not to let the statistical layman confused, mistaken for a precision of several digital can reflect the findings after the decimal point percentage, so all percentages are integers. This accuracy is false, meaningless, unable to infer the validity of survey results. Only the similar data validity compared to test results. Give an introduction example: "Hope", "optimism" confidence "," the three concepts are quite close, but is not consistent. This is reflected in the assigned colors and their distribution: the color of hope that 52% is green, then 23% of the people think that is blue, 7% of the people think that is white, 6% of the people think that is yellow. In the concept of "faith", the dominant is still green and blue  26%   17%, third yellow  9%. In this concept of optimism, in the first row of the Yellow  19%, then a green and blue  17%   15%. The green represents hope than trust green to deep, that is a kind of feeling more strongly than trust. Mention optimistic people think more of an ever cheerful mood, not through hard times after the beginning of a new. These three concepts are reflected in the similar typical hues of green - Blue - yellow these three colors. So the comparison may be the concept of color can be added to each color interpretation. For example, optimistic color and symbol of life fun colors match, love and sex with the similar color color, but the sex of the colors except red and pink, also a symbol of immoral colors -- black and purple. On an isolated color imagination and can not meet our colorful Lenovo, relative to human association, the number of colors is not enough. In our association in many colors, with typical tone. Display color logic in comparison with similar concepts in colorSex.
