I hope you felt like today I’ll not wear this black top, instead, I’ll wear this yellow one. Because every color throws different pictures and creates a distinguishable feeling within us. Let’s say each Color has a Different Significance. Even, Men and Women see things differently. Men perceive less difference in colors than women due to neuron differences in the visual cortex of the brain.
