Colors can actually contribute more than just aesthetics. It could have an effect on you and your lifestyle. 

  1. Red for power.

The good news is that red is a powerful color that can make you physically faster and stronger. We also can't help ourselves from rooting for the players wearing red, because the color makes us favor them more. But on the bad side, it can also represent danger and can cause alarm, so before you take a major exam, be sure not to look at anything red because it can lower your scores. (cracked.com)

  1. Orange for emotional strength.

Orange isn't just Peeta's color in the Hunger Games, orange can actually offer emotional strength in difficult times. Because of it being such an optimistic color, it helps us bounce back from disappointments, and helps us recover from grief. (via empower-yourself-with-color-psychology.com)

  1. Yellow for a happy person.

The color yellow is considered a happy color that's cheerful and increases mental activity. Too little of the color yellow in your life can promote the feelings of isolation, insecurity, fear, and low self-esteem; causing a person to become rigid, cunning, and possessive. Maybe that's the reason why Gru from Despicable Me wasn't such a bad guy you expected from villans because he had those cute yellow minions around. (via bourncreative.com
