How color theory works in human life?

Colors have been presented in our lives since we opened our eyes until we felt visually related to certain colors. This happened because we give definition to each color and from that, we begin to affect in our lives as mood, personality, and in decision-making. An example is when someone decides a color to paint for the room and although it is an easy question, it really takes time to choose a color because it will transmit a message or a characteristic of him or her. If the person chooses a pink color for the room, then he wants to convey that she is feminine in everything and thus each color of a different vibration. Also, Elliot and Maier (2014) that each color can have several meanings depending on the context such as red, but also red can mean something sexy. In addition to this, the same authors confirm that color can be seen both as a physical object or as a psychological context today as the color of objects can influence people more easily.

However, Kashimir Images (2013) explains that ancient Chinese and Egyptian cultures used colors to heal human bodies like yellow used to stimulate the nerves and purify the body. This is also a reference to what Elliot and Maier (2007) explain that by color context, they should include the cultural part that is already all generalized in an error since, in each country, there are cultures that have a perspective of the different colors. The theory of colors influences all people without limits and this is seen in the survey conducted by Kurt and Osueke (2014) where it deals with the effect of colors in the rooms of the university campus, where students feel more comfortable in color of the room and how that color affects their mood. Unfortunately, the theory of colors is still an unsolved problem, which Palmer, Schloss, and Sammartino (2013) consider that the audience nowadays confuses colors with the concept of aesthetics due to the visual stimulation and lack of color theory. That said, colors representations are more complex than individuals think and are that the visual part has an important role in this theory and, from that, people are influenced by colors.
