Seeing Red…

redscreen“New research shows that the color red makes us more cautious and attentive to details, while blue makes us more creative and receptive to new ideas.”

You can read more about this new study recently published on the web site of the journal  Science at NPR on in the New York Times

During this study  at the University of British Columbia, researchers tested 600 participants  to determine whether cognitive performance changed  when people saw red or blue. Participants performed tasks with words or images displayed against different colored  backgrounds on computer screens.

Also I came across an interesting blog post on Cultivating a Creative Life. About this story.
