The color red is not for shy people. It’s very attention grabbing; which is why STOP signs and fire trucks are red. Red is also associated with love and passion, making it very popular during the month of February, because of Valentine’s Day. Red is a very powerful color, and people who wear red often are seen as confident and assertive. However, because red can be overwhelming to some people, red can be perceived as aggressive.
