Abstract

Color and how individuals perceive it has been studied for many years. Even the Internet guru Google studies the effects of color on productivity. In education, many suggestions are introduced with regard to how to decorate the classroom, paint the walls, etc. Even though physical components of climate are important, the teacher’s appearance also plays a key role in classroom climate, therefore, this study provides information about how the way educators or presenters dress can influence the audience’s perceptions of them. This pilot study seeks to discover how the color of individuals’ clothes affects perceptions of whether they are or are not friendly, utilizing responses from students from Kindergarten through 12th grade, as well as adults. Throughout this presentation, the methodology will be presented, as well as the implications that this research may have in the educational community.
