16 June 18: Go green for greater creativity

I’m in a quandary and it’s got me thinking: is there a colour that helps us when we’re stuck and can’t shift our thought processes? I once read of a study in the Personality & Social Psychology Bulletin that found that people who were shown green before creative challenges came up with the most imaginative and interesting responses (the so-called ‘green effect’). Earlier today I was drawn to these green vessels by west London ceramicist Jose Carvalho @jc_ceramics(top left) and it got me thinking of the power of green once more. Thoughts? Does green help you when you’re needing a creative or problem-solving boost? Or does another colour do the trick for you?
