Transcript of AP Psychology Experiment: Does color effect mood?

By: Kayla Dye and Elisha Henson Does Color Affect
One's Mood? What took place? In our experiment, Elisha and I, surveyed a total of 9 random students. We went around the room and showed them each color. The colors that were shown were, orange, blue, black, and yellow. After we showed them each color, we asked them to take out a piece of paper and write down how each color made them feel. We then collected the surveys and analyzed the data. Hypothesis: When being shown the variety of colors, each participant will show the emotion that bright colors tend to make the participant happy, while dark
colors tend to make the participant depressed and sad. Yellow's Results: Conclusion: In conclusion to this experiment, our hypothesis proved to be true. We went around the room with each color and asked each student to express how each color made them feel; and/or what emotion was brought about. As expected, bright colors varied from a happy emotion to a calm and peaceful emotion; and Dark colors varied from a depressing emotion to a sad and dull emotion to no emotion at all. Independent Variable: The Independent Variable: is the mood in which each color has put off. Dependent Variable: What is a Dependent Variable? A Dependent Variable
is the variable that is being measured.

Dependent Variable: whether or not if each color
had a particular emotion. Experimental Group: We went to a random classroom, with random students, and chose them to participate in our color survey. There was a total of 9 students all-together. Control Group: Blue's Results: Black's Results: Orange's Results: Background Information: Orange: It is associated with joy, sunshine, and the tropics. Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation. Blue: It is often associated with depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. Blue is strongly associated with tranquility and calmness. Black: Black is associated with power, elegance, formality, death, evil, and mystery. Black is a mysterious color associated with fear and the unknown. It usually has a negative connotation. Black denotes strength and authority. Yellow: It's associated with joy, happiness, intellect, and energy. Yellow produces a warming effect and arouses cheerfulness. What is an Independent Variable? It is the the variable that is being manipulated. There was no control. Every student was
given and participated in the color survey.
