Lockdown-day 15: Color Psychology

With the rains coming in and graying the skies, I got to thinking about how colors around us effect our moods. Colors influence perceptions that are not obvious, so I did some research on how people get effected by the colors we wear. While many people are aware of the impact of color on their own image and how they look to other people, what you may not be so familiar with is the psychological impact your choice of color can have on others, specially in business. Color has such a subconscious impact that it is important to have an understanding of what it says.

  • Establish trust and credibility, then blue is best. It is the safest color of all, universally liked by most men and women – however it has a certain predictability about it and suggests ‘conservative’.
  • Appear friendly & approachable – choose lighter colors such as mid tone blues and greensblue-greens and tealtan and peachy-orange.
  • Be assertive – red, but it can also be threatening to others.
  • Get noticed – red, if giving a talk to a large group – but it can be tiring if you are already overtired.
  • Appear confident – blue-green is a good business color for women to wear, it suggests high self esteem and confidence, yet is still friendly and approachable.
  • Show dependability – green – be aware that it is also a color that is not always liked by others, even though it is the color of emotional balance.
  • Appear neutral – grey or beige will do it. This can let your personality shine through, although you may also come across as a fence-sitter, keeping your true feelings to yourself – you may say what the client wants to hear, rather than the truth.
  • Professional with authority – dark blue or dark grey, which are the most business-like colors and good for credibility when promoting your business, yet these could be too overpowering and somber for many of your clients in a consultation.
  • Shock and inspire your audience – magenta will do this for you.

So next time you prepare for an event, interview or presentation, pick the right color.

Think about it!!

Lockdown-day 11:Intuition

I was watching the movie Doubt, in which the female protagonist questions the priest’s integrity based on her moral certaintywithout a shard of proof. This got me thinking about Intuition.

Intuition – “the ability to understand something instinctively, without the need for conscious reasoning“. We all have a moment in life when we have a gut feeling about something which defies all rationality. In moments like these do you listen to yourself or do you shrug it off? Most of us have grown up believing that there should be logic to all the decisions we make, but we need both intuition and reason to come to the best possible decision.

Research show that only 20% of the brains gray matter is dedicated to conscious thoughts while 80% is dedicated to non conscious thoughts, so how could we possibly make decisions without including the non conscious part of the brain. The conscious is the expert at logic which we use relentlessly, on the contrary the unconscious mind searches though the past, present and future and tries to come up with hunches and feelings.

Writing your thoughts down helps open up your non conscious mind, stir up your emotional feeling rather than intellectual feelings. With this you create a deeper relationship with self which helps you to bring your true instinctual awareness back into your rational life.

Think about it !!!

Stay Safe … Stay Home !!!

Lockdown-day 5: Heart of a mouse

A mouse was in constant distress because of his fear of the cat and went to a magician, he took pity on him and turned him into a cat. But then he became afraid of the dog.
So the magician turned him into a dog. Then he began to fear the panther, so the magician turned him into a panther. After which he was fearful of the hunter.
At this point, the magician gave up. He turned him into a mouse again saying, “Nothing I do for you is going to be of any help because you have the heart of a mouse.”

External change and appearance will not matter if you don’t change your inner self and mind.

Think about it!!!
