Colors

Colors as we all know are of a wide range. Between what is color?, sorry there are a lot of people who give a lot of definition to it and I’m not interested in explaining / arguing which is the right one here as I’d like to take this article on a different note and this article doesn’t revolve around Chromatics. The one I liked as the definition of color is “Color is the visual perceptual property corresponding to human”. The interest of this article would revolve around the psychological perceptual stimulus of humans with their visual perceptual property…Oops I mean the color. This is purely from my personal perception and this interpretation doesn’t need to have any proof: P.

Major visual perception revolves around Red, Green and Yellow and the rest of the colors are a combination of these three including illusions. They way one sees them depends on the ratio of how these are blended with each other. Similarly the human psychological perception revolves around the good, bad and a makeshift balance which is the animal in everyone, it generally favors the good and also do the bad in certain circumstances which makes a person very similar to illusion. Different colors form with the different proportion of the three master colors and similarly different nature forms with the different proportion of these three psychological thoughts.

Generally everyone looks the color with the same visual perceptual property unless they are visually handicapped, but I always wondered why the one which looks pleasant to me looks very disturbing or unpleasant to others and vice versa. This is purely on the mindset or the way how we look at it and at the end all the colors are pleasant and colors add a lot of values in mind. This somehow conveys me that both these psychological and visual perception has a proportion in our brain.

Well we also have different kind of same colors, I mean by adjusting the brightness and contrast we get them and we name it differently and these brightness and contrast is added by the surroundings / the visibility and similarly in the psychological perception I would say the human tendency to justify himself / herself on good and bad is with their surroundings [I mean the people around them] and to a great extent I strongly argue this point. The brightness and contrast I discussed would relate to the ego and selflessness here. The ratio of this would be obviously in proportion with the way the fellow person’s perception if not initially, but with a certain amount of time.

If these brightness and contrast are set right on the node then all the colors are pleasant to everyone!

P.S : The views expressed in this article is purely of author's imagination and it might contradict with any of the theories and the author is not responsible for the same. :P

Colurs are not simply about he visual perceptual property or pychological perceptual property Colours have a symbolic importance also. In some cultures, some colours are considered to be sacred and in some evil properties are attributed to them. For example, white is worn in christian weddings and not in Hindu ones. So, even if you work on the brightness and what not of these colours, the symbolic value of them do not go away.

I love black and white ... :)

Also, different colors create a particular chemical locha within our brains. But that being the natural evolutionary instinct the real interpreter is our intellect + mind that decides how we perceive it. The intellect and mind decides that a particular color is bad or gud ...

White is a universal color of peace ... Red evokes a sense of passion and bold aggression ... Pink is associated with girlish or gay ...

These are things we as humans interpret and define as per the emotions evoked or simple association.

I just wondered how simply you have narrated the philosophy. It’s simply superb, after reading your article I feel enlighten :). Previously I thought that reading non technical blogs is just a time pass :P but after reading this article I think my perception was wrong.

u have written technical aspects which may be right in few cases but the theory u have given for "why ppl like certain color and why ppl hate certain color " is not exactly correct coz mind cant see colors!

What I believe(technicall) is that we have we have few memories assoiciated with certain colors and when we see colors then associated memories tells our mind how to react on it .
