       What is your favourite colour? Do you like yellow, Orange, red? If you do , you must be an optimist, a leader, an active person who enjoys life, people and excitement. Do you prefer greys and blues? Then you are probably quiet, shy, and you would rather follow than lead. You tend to be a pessimist. At least, this is what psychologists tell us, and they should know, because they have been seriously studying the meaning of colour preference, as well as the effect that colours have on human beings. They tell us, among other facts, that we do not choose our favourite colour as we grow up-we are born with our preference. If you happen to love brown, you did so, as soon as you opened your eyes, or as soon as you could see clearly.

       你喜欢什么颜色?你喜欢黄色、橙色和红色吗?倘若如此,你准是一个乐观的人,一个领导者,一个享受人生。乐于交往、容易激动、积极向上的人。你偏爱灰、蓝系列吗?那么,你很可能缄默、羞怯,你宁愿被人领导而不愿领导别人。你有悲观者的倾向。至少,这是心理学家告诉我们的-心理学家应该是这方面的专家,因为他们一直在认认真真地研究色彩偏爱的意义以及各种色彩对人的不同影响。他们告诉我们许多东西,其中之一是我们并不是在成长过程中挑选自己偏爱的色彩-我们的这种偏爱与生俱来。假设你碰巧喜欢褐色,当初你一睁眼看到这个世界,或至少当你看清这个世界的时候,你就喜欢上褐色了。
        Colours do influence our moods-there is no doubt about is. A yellow room makes most people feel more cheerful and more relaxed than a dark green one; and a red dress brings warmth and cheer to the saddest winer day. On the other hand, black is depressing. A black bridge over the Tames River, near London, used to be scene of more suicides than any other bridge in the area-until was repainted green. The number of suicide attempts immediately fell sharply: perhaps it would have fallen even more if the bridge had been done in pink or baby blue.
       色彩的确影响我们的情绪-这一点毫无疑问。大多数人在一个黄色的房间里比在一个深绿色的房间里更感到愉悦松弛,一件红衣服在最凄冷的冬日也能给人带来温暖和振奋。而黑色却使人压抑。伦敦附近泰晤士河上曾有一座黑色的桥,在这座桥上自杀的人数比这一地区任何一座桥都多。后来人们将它漆成绿色,企图自杀的人数立刻骤减,倘若将这座桥漆成粉红色或浅蓝色,下降幅度或许会更大。
        Light and bright colours make people not only happier but more active. It is established that factory workers work better, harder, and have fewer accidents when their machines are painted orange rather than black or grey.
       轻松明快的色调不仅使人更加愉悦也更积极向上,事实证明,如果把工厂里的机器油漆成橘黄色而不是黑色或灰色,工厂就会干得更勤奋、更出色,事故也会更少。
