Our internal detector interprets the colors and returns impressions

The language of colors is very similar to body language. We all have an internal detector that detects and interprets the colors around us almost automatically and without us even noticing it or knowing it consciously. Because the human subconscious is very powerful. It does a lot of behind-the-scenes tasks for us, and in the case of colors, it just sends us the results of its interpretation as impressions.

It is this internal detector which is the object and the raw material of neuroscience specialists and those of neuroMarketing who are frantically and constantly trying to better understand this mechanism and its secrets to influence the consumer to buy more and more.

Man and monkeys, the only two exceptions to the rule

You should know that this talent(automatic detection and interpretation) is restricted to humans and monkeys who take full advantage of it. Concerning other species, animals for example, are only able to see generally two colors at most. And for birds and some insects, it goes up to five colors. Mammals, with some very rare exceptions, only see what looks like black and white.

Your cat and dog, on the other hand, only see yellow and blue. The trainers have spent months and years trying and repeating the tests before finally understanding that it is absolutely not possible at all to teach them anything through the other colors.

Those who still believe that the bull reacted when seeing the red, think again. Because this latter, if it does what it does, If it acts like that, it is because it is excited by the movements and not at all because of the color displayed.
