Hayes 1 Writer’s Memo For this essay, Mrs. Morrison stressed finding a topic that was “fresh”, something that I thought was interesting to look into. Most people in the class were doing pretty generic topics, so I felt like I had to go outside the box. I had a couple of good topic choices, like Why Do Oreo’s have to be Milk’s Favorite Cookie? and Do Parents Influence our Political Viewpoints?, but after looking up these questions on the internet, there was not a lot of information on these topics. When I talked about my colors topic in class, Mrs. Morrison thought it was fascinating and that I should definitely look into it. I decided to go against psychology because to me, it seemed like the only way to make an argument out of my topic. After discussing it with Mrs. Morrison in conferences, I had all the information I needed to write my paper. My difficulty was trying to make my argument sound convincing. I want people to understand that color psychology is not everything for colors. We need to focus on the “other” factors of a color.

Experts claim that there is “color psychology”, but do their definitions fit into what you are thinking of at that moment? In my opinion, although psychology works, you cannot always associate emotions with a color. We will investigate if there is another way to look at colors, and then also look at whether psychology works. To begin, colors are different for everyone. For example, in a poll taken within our classroom, about half of the people, mostly guys, said green. The girls tended to pick pink, blue, and red. Color psychology says that people that like green are people that represent things like good luck, youth, generosity, jealousy, inexperience, envy, and misfortune (Nicholson). Color psychology says that the people that liked red should be associated with emotions like love, danger, and anger (Nicholson). If you notice, some of the emotions for each color either contradict themselves or have emotions with very
