Red has always been associated with anger because of the way it affects your nervous system. It speeds up the metabolism, dilates the pupils, energizes. It’s a very powerful color worn by those seeking attention. Because of its tendency to draw attention, it is also seen as intimidating and can cause others to shy away from the wearer.

Those who wear yellow are usually very optimistic people not afraid to stand apart from the crowd, however, yellow is also worn by those who are irritable and ready to fight.
