Good point, Vinh. I agree with your suggestion to exercise caution on relying too heavily on the Caan study. However, taken in conjunction with several other studies on the relationship between color, space, and cognition, it does appear to be consistent with the general thesis that color influences behavior in somewhat predictable patterns.
