Orange - People don't like Orange! What is wrong with them?
Apparently research shows that Orange is not generally liked. Well, anyone who knows me knows I LURVE orange.
Lucinda Rosenfeld delves into the fascination children have with colors:
"If people want children to act in a calmer way, they should go with blue or another cooler color," [Marilyn Read, an associate professor of design and human environment at Oregon State University] advises. Even little girls’ love affair with the color pink—forever the object of much hand-wringing by parents uneasy with the message it sends—may be innate. "Pink is a color that makes us hungry. It’s also a color that boys like until they’re told not to like it," says Read, who notes just one case in which gender differences in color preference might be nature not nurture: Some researchers suggest that boys tend to prefer yellow-based reds (think: tomatoes), while girls prefer blue-based reds (think: rubies). Both boys and girls tend to dislike orange.
