Need I say more?", and immediately received a few comments. One saying I did not need to say any more and another commenting on working for the day.

As I was researching for this blog post, I discovered that information on the psychology of color is everywhere. There are blogs, articles, and books stating yellow is bright and cheerful like the sunshine, red is bold, black is classic like the little black dress but could be somewhat mysterious, and green is the color of money.
