Myths Color Can Be Kind Of Disgusting We All Have Similar Taste In Colors We Perceive Colors Differently Color Affects Our Depth Perception Color Affects Our Judgment

Here are a few of the more bizarre places we’re historically got our colors from: the charred remains of dead bodies, the urine of cows that have been fed mango leaves, insect blood, and sea slug tears. Studies have shown that regardless of gender, nationality, or culture, we all order our preference of colors in a predictable order, with only a small amount of variation. In his book Elements of Color, Johannes Itten tells us we each have our own “subjective color palette”, and that we are able to see more shades of colors that are within our subject palette than those that are not.
