5 things your clothes are saying about you:
Eric Barker stashed this in Personality
PandaWhale wears mostly black and white and occasional shades of grey.
Black shows you’re serious and that you won’t take no for an answer.
White exudes honesty and innocence.
Gray is a good neutral, the quintessential color of business.
Dark Blue conveys trust, which is why Facebook and LinkedIn wear it.
I didn't realize Orange grows weary. PandaWhale uses orange sparingly and perhaps those oranges should move to Red.
If you're curious about colors in general:
1) Green can make you more creative.
3) Countries with lots of colors in their flags are less happy.
4) A yellow price tag makes people think they're getting a discount -- even if they aren't.
Those are all fascinating, Eric.
I do like the Orange used sparingly in PandaWhale -- do you have any findings on what Orange means?
There's a new Orange button that will be rolling out next week, actually.
No other orange color research on hand but you may want to mix some orange + vanilla scent round the office to keep everyone stress-free:
"In a medical study of patients undergoing a tense procedure for cancer diagnosis, a vanilla scent mixed into humidified air lessened anxiety up to 63% compared to patients who were administered humidified air alone (Redd et al. 2005). The retail domain has noticed vanilla’s beneficial effects too, with stores such as Sony Style diffusing a blend of vanilla and orange notes into the air so as to put shoppers at ease when contemplating complex technology products (Vlahos 2007)."
Orange + Vanilla = Creamsicle, which is the color of orange we chose for PandaWhale. Good call!
I also like that messy and unconventional clothing means I'm open to new things: http://www.bakadesuyo.com/what-can-you-tell-about-someones-personality
Instead of just meaning that I'm messy and unconventional. :P
My environment is like my clothes. Messy and unconventional.
Then you're doubly open to new ideas. :)
