    Scientific studies show that people have a more positive reaction, more 'energy' with red than with blue. Sports teams wearing red win more often, for example.

    "Blue bloods" used to be considered effete vs. say, red meat.

    I can't stand the whole red and blue thing.
    America is red, white, and blue........

      Colors have speed.
      Red is the fastest color, blue is the slowest. Green is in between.
        Take this test. Close your eyes for a few seconds. Then open them.
        You will notice that your eyes will immediately see the tiniest red thing in the room before it sees anything else. No matter how big the blue thing is.
        Red is the color of rage, passion, furious, Hell, etc.
        Blue is the color of calmness, serenity, fidelity, spirituality, Heaven, etc.
        If you're doing a painting or drawing if you want to put something forward in the picture plane use red, if you want to set it back in the picture plane use blue.
        Red has more chroma than any color, except maybe some blacks. like purple blacks. My favorite of all the blacks.
        Red goes from red to white or black with more steps than blue. Blue gets to both ends pretty quickly.
        Also when you are talking about pigment red, blue and yellow are the primary colors. When you are talking about light red, blue, and green are the primary colors. Yellow is made at the cross section of green and red. I've seen it happen.
         Blue is easier on the eyes than red, even the violet blues. Looking at red tires out your eyes. Looking at some reds for a long time can start to burn your eyes. The cherrier red the red is the harder it is to look at it. The yellower or orangier the red the easiest it is to look at.
         See college can be fun especially when you take a color class.

      Pay attention to banking, financial, legal and often medical logos.  They almost always include blue, and are often dominated by it.

      Two men walk into your office wearing identical navy blue suits, white shirts. They're going to be responsible for managing all your money from here on out. And you cant interview or speak to them first. One is wearing a bright red tie. The other, a blue tie.

      Whom do you trust more?
