Is Red the colour of Love?
I read something interesting in Vancouver’s Metro Newspaper. A new study looked at what attracts men to women – it proved that red is really the colour of love! Never estimate the power of a woman in red.
Men were asked to look at photos of women. Part of those photos either involved a woman wearing red or were framed in red borders. As a result, women either surrounded by red or wearing red were ranked to be most attractive.
Women in Red
- – more attractive
- – more sexually desired
- – more likely to be asked out
- – more likely to be spent more money on
Primitive, isn’t it? I guess that can help women to determine what colour dress to wear to a date with someone you’d like to impress. I think it’s time for me to add more red to my wardrobe!
In some cultures the word “red” is actually the same word as “beautiful”. For example, in old Slavic languages saying “red maiden” was equivalent to “beautiful maiden”. This expression can still be found in old Slavic folk songs.
This article reminds me of something that I’ve read in a book called E-Myth about business. It turns out that blue business suits will outsell brown business suits, regardless of who is in them. We don’t notice, but a lot of our decisions are not logical decisions at all, rather subconscious.
