Colorful Personalities

Colorful PersonalitiesBy Chelsey Provencher and Lauren HooverOur ProjectWe wanted to see if there is a correlation between the meaning behind a persons favorite color and aspects of a persons personality.We also wanted to see if there was a relationship between a persons favorite color and GPA, SPORTS, BIRTHDAY, AGE, and GENDER

Data CollectionTo collect data we made a personality survey on www.surveymonkey.comThis survey asked the survey takers gender, age, birthday, GPA, whether or not they play a sport, whether they are quiet or outgoing, how willing they are to put others before themselves (scale of 1-4, 1 being least likely), and to pick three personality attributesThis survey was posted on www.facebook.com ProcedureWe had 202 subjects respond to our survey, and after collecting all of our data, we randomly selected one data set using a random number generator on a calculator and used every other one after that.To get the conditions of our tests to work, we combined certain categories. (Orange-Yellow, Pink-Red, Black-Purple)Then we chose to conduct 3 Chi Squared tests and 1 t-test that worked with our dataTests and Intervals Chi Squared Test of Independence (3 times)Gender vs. ColorSociability vs. ColorSports vs. Color1 Sample t-TestGPAColor MeaningColor meaning or color symbolism is the use of color to represent traditional, cultural, or religious ideas, concepts or feelings 0r to evoke physical reactions. Colors can say something without using words.Black => DeathWhite => PeaceGreen => GrowthRed => DangerYellow => CautionBlue => LoyaltyColor MeaningRed:Excitement, energy, passion, love, desire, speed, strength, power, heat, aggression, danger, fire, blood, war, violence, all things intense and passionatePink:Love and romance, caring, tenderness, acceptance and calm.Yellow:Joy, happiness, betrayal, optimism, idealism, imagination, hope, sunshine, summer, gold, philosophy, dishonesty, cowardice, jealousy, covetousness, deceit, illness, hazard and friendship.Orange:Energy, balance, enthusiasm, warmth, vibrant, expansive, flamboyant, demanding of attentionGreen:Nature, environment, healthy, good luck, renewal, youth, spring, generosity, fertility, jealousy, inexperience, envy, misfortune, vigorColor Meaning (cont.)Blue:Peace, tranquility, cold, calm, stability, harmony, unity, trust, truth, confidence, conservatism, security, cleanliness, order, loyalty, sky, water, technology, depression, appetite suppressant.Purple:Royalty, nobility, spirituality, ceremony, mysterious, transformation, wisdom, enlightenment, cruelty, arrogance, mourning.Brown:Earth, stability, hearth, home, outdoors, reliability, comfort, endurance, simplicity, and comfort.Black:Power, sexuality, sophistication, formality, elegance, wealth, mystery, fear, evil, unhappiness, depth, style, evil, sadness, remorse, anger, anonymity, underground, good technical color, mourning, deathWhite:Reverence, purity, birth, simplicity, cleanliness, peace, humility, precision, innocence, youth, winter, snow, good, sterility, marriage, death, cold, clinical.Color vs. GenderOf all teens:21% - Blue47.6% Female52.38% Male14% - Green42.86% Female57.14% Male26% - Purple/ Black76.9% Female23.07% Male25%- Red/ Pink80% Female20% Male14% - yellow/ Orange57.14% Female42.8% Male

When we compared the conditional to the marginal percents, the numbers were not similar so Gender and Color are dependent on each other

Color vs. GenderOur cell counts were not >5 so we had to combine the colors black and purple, red and pink and yellow and orange They had similar meaningsIn our Survey we had 64 females and 36 males

All Conditions met -> Chi Squared distribution -> Chi Squared Test of Independence Chi Squared Test of Independence between Color and GenderHo: There is no relationship between color and genderHA: There is a relationship between color and gender

P(X2 > 10.11/ df= 4) = .039 We reject Ho because the p-value of .039 is < alpha= .05. We have sufficient evidence that there is a relationship between color and gender. Color vs. Sociability

When we compared the conditional to the marginal percents, the numbers were not similar so Sociability and Color are dependent on each other

Color vs. SociabilityWe asked people to either describe themselves as outgoing or quietAnd we wanted to see if there was a relationship between color and their sociability
