Because of the way the studies were designed, they could show only a correlation between the color of the clothes the athletes competed in and their eventual wins or losses.
teams’ color choices reflected a "soft anti-Americanism feeling that Americans can't show their exceptualism” at the Olympics.)may make a small but significance difference in Olympic competion, at least according to some research.
As Stafford explains, two studies conducted at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens came up with two different findings in regard to the color of the athletes’ clothing and their performance in their sports.
One study, which looked at the sports of tae kwon do, boxing and wrestling, found that competitors who wore red clothing or body protection had a slightly higher chance of taking home the gold when compared with those who wore blue.
The authors of this study suggested that red, which is associated with aggression and dominance, may give athletes a psychological advantage.
It may seem strange to identify a sensation of temperature with the visual realm of colour sensation.
However, the experiments have demonstrated the a difference of five to seven degrees in the subjective feeling of heat or cold between a work room painted in blue- green and one painted in red-orange.
Threat, criminal threatening (or threatening behavior) is the crime of intentionally or knowingly putting another person in fear of bodily injury.
"Threat of harm generally involves a perception of injury...physical or mental damage..or instance of injury, or a material and detriment or loss to a person." Threatening behaviors may be conceptualized as a maladaptive outgrowth of normal competitive urge for interrelational dominance generally seen in animals.
That is, in the blue-green room the occupants felt that 59 degree F was cold, whereas in red-orange they did not feel cold until the temperature fell to 51-54 degree F.
Objectively, this means that blue green slows down the circulation and red-orange stimulates it.
Behavioral theorists often see threatening behaviours as a consequence of being threatened by others, including parents, authority figures, playmates and siblings.
