Yellow is the color associated with the sun, making it one that promotes cheerfulness in people. However, it has been shown that too much yellow in a room can increase the chance of people losing their tempers and even can cause babies to cry more frequently. Yellow is thought to focus attention, so it is often the color of choice in legal pads.
Purple is the color of royalty, symbolizing wealth and sophistication, and also of passion, be it artistic, emotional, or spiritual. It is commonly used in the vestments and decorations of Christian churches throughout the world to denote the sovereignty of God and the “passion” by which he rose to heaven and by which the faithful show their allegiance. Brown is the color of earth (i.e. ground; dirt; soil) and, like earth, carries the connotation of stability and reliability. It is commonly selected by men as a favorite color.
