What Colors are Best for Focus?
You may assume it's calm and soothing colors, but a study by Australian Curtin University says otherwise
Color in Focus-Demanding Environments
There’s been an ongoing debate as to which colors are best for maximizing focus levels. Some studies claim that green or orange best promote efficiency, while others claim that blue is best for productivity.
Today we will be looking at a study by Curtin University, which resulted in neither of the aforementioned colors being optimal for focus. Students were asked to read an excerpt followed by multiple-choice questions taken from a standardized test for university admissions in the United States. The goal was to determine which colors most positively impact concentration, so they split the students into rooms with six different color schemes: pale colors, bright blues, reds, and yellows.
