Suggestions for Improvement[edit]

This article could definitely use some work. Expanding on the idea of WHY someone prefers one color over another and why their brain convinces them that they like blue more than they like red. What part of the brain controls this preference? danielle*rose (talk) 22:42, 19 September 2011 (UTC) (moved here from article by Melchoir (talk) 23:42, 19 September 2011 (UTC))

Some pointers[edit]

This article is only two sentences long. Try researching why color preferences exist. Why are certain colors 'girl' colors and others 'boys'. What causes changes in color preference? When do people develop a color preference? There are many more questions you could answer to improve this article. Ef174732 (talk) 00:55, 20 September 2011 (UTC)


Overall I think that the information presented was good. I would like to see maybe some expansion on some of your points, like answers some of the questions Ef174732 has stated. Roach17 (talk) 20:15, 8 October 2011 (UTC)


I reviewed the sentences you have added to this article, the information was good and backed up with resources. However like Ef174732 and Roach17 you should add more reserch about a few more questions to give more detailed info. Meganhorn03 (talk) 8:03, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

Suggestion for Article[edit]

The article has several interesting facts, and an entire section on children. But I think it is important to include other stages of life rather than just children. How about adults? And when are all of the colors fully equal? Certian questions you might want to address. --Annmohh (talk) 04:08, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

Response to suggestions by 3 headings above[edit]

I do not believe the above 3 users read the source material. The assignment (Week 4&5) was to write one or two sentences-How was I supposed to have have more detail, research, and expansion? Completely unhelpful comments considering the assignment: no revisions to my sentences about plagerism or grammmar.Sanwish (talk) 05:59, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

Yet Another Suggestion[edit]

Although I agree with what most of these articles suggest about the addition of the subject of adults, I also think that ages should be included as well. I mean, what ages does the word "childern" really apply to? Maybe add something to that degree explaining in detail. Other than that, I believe taht the additions that have been already written are fantastic. Good job! --DieHardMcClain (talk) 15:44, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

I assume childrens' ages to be twelve and under, personally. According to the source, the study focused on the interiors of daycares, therefore, I assume an even younger age range is being considered. I agree with your statement: the exact age range needs to be specified. I advise everyone to read the source if the suggestion pertains to the Week 6 Assignment of the Psych 101-02 course.Sanwish (talk) 18:48, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

I agree with Sanwish[edit]

Clearly the other three users did not read the homework assignment for the previous week. We only needed to add a couple sentences. Also, it would be helpful if you state which user you guys are reviewing.Khaycee18 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 05:47, 11 October 2011 (UTC).
