In this particular study, the researchers wanted to find the effects of the color red on a combat sport; moreover, the study tried to neutralize every other aspect that could affect the outcome performance of the fighters involved and the judging to get the best results. The people that participated in the study were handball players, with very little amounts of combat training. In fact, only 3 of the28 total participants had any training in combat. The fact that most of the participants were mostly novices stood to help the study, because the researchers were able to tell if the color red affected performance by viewing the results from the raw performance was influenced as compared to trained athletes.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
