Often exuding a calming effect, the colour pink evokes feelings of femininity, softness and love. In popular culture, pink carnation symbolises “I will never forget you”.Although pink has always been associated with girls and boys, blue; is it simply a matter of convention or girls actually biologically “programmed” to prefer pink? An article in Times, citing a study by Current Biology, shed some light on this well-established phenomenon.
Interestingly, the study found that although both sexes generally preferred blue, women gravitated towards the redder shades of blue (eg. indigo) while men tended towards the greener shades of blue (eg. teal). Yazhu Ling, co-author of the study, mentioned that this is the first study which pinpoints towards a robust sex difference in the red-green axis of human colour vision. As superficial as this may mean, this preference actually has an evolutionary advantage behind it. Ling speculates that this preference attributes back to history when men hunted in the foliage, a greater sensitivity towards green allowed to differentiate ripe berries and fruit while females developed a more acute inclination towards red to spot, for example, changes in skin colour to detect fever and illnesses in children.
Regardless, pink remains an ever popular colour of choice for both men and women around the globe. With these pretty pink confections by MBT, they will certainly leave you craving for more.
