Psychology seeks to achieve the answers that our mind alone cannot achieve, and one of these ways is through color perception, or as it is also called through color psychology.

Studies have been done where several people respond more aggressively to certain colors in particular, while others feel a degree of warmth and calm when they see other certain colors.

All this has an answer and a why, which is the objective that color psychology wants to achieve , so we invite you to learn more about this discipline and its most relevant curiosities.

Symbology of colors

Some specific colors have a different way of perceiving themselves than others, all this will depend on the person who observes it, today we will talk about the most common color symbols .

From a psychological perspective we can determine it as that feeling of protection and security, which can also easily be linked to money or monetary interest.

An example is the olive green that represents the branch of peace that the doves carry in their beaks to symbolize this motto, but when the green changes it can mean discomfort or illness.

In the case of the following color, we will highlight the attributes of the color Orange, although it is similar to red, this lighter color represents for many happiness and well-being and unlike other colors it gives a feeling of strength and warmth.

In the color Orange, there are no aggressive feelings, since it is perceived from an approach that makes us determine it as a color that gives people a certain tranquility.

Now we will go with the color Red, well known for representing love and passion for many , it is a color that visually gives the person a certain strength, vitality and even more because this is the color of blood.

Here it could represent not only vitality but also violence. Everything will depend on the approach with which the person sees it in the psychology of color .

The color determined as the meaning of pure and peace, the color White, this color has been the most represented since time immemorial, because it evokes peace, goodness and even faith and perfection. It transmits purity to whoever wears it.

It is for this reason that traditionally a woman’s wedding dress is white.

As for the Yellow Color, it is represented by sunlight and energy , which makes many people wear it when they feel vital and energetic, radiating strength.

The Color Black, for years, has been referred to as the language of bad luck or things that perhaps range from the illegal to the supernatural, but it can also be perceived as a symbol or feeling of seriousness and elegance.

And also a reaction to the unknown, everything that we do not know is sometimes imagined as black.

On the contrary, the Color Pink, represents women, sweetness and innocence, characteristic of girls also gives the feeling of friendship and romanticism, and also with beauty.

As for the Color Blue, in this case we usually associate it with the sky, the freshness, the grandeur of the sea and also with children, with the male gender for that same force that it represents.

Finally we have the Color Purple, which represents elegance, wealth, power and of course royalty, that is why the monarchies have been represented with this color, and even the cassocks of the priests are of this color.
