This research paper investigates whether various spectrums of light can have an effect on mood. Eyeglasses of red or blue lenses were used to alter spectrum of light in this study. Participants in this study were male and female students from Lindenwood University ranging in age from 18 to 26. The research procedure consisted of a 10-minute questionnaire, interview and a perception test that will measure visual disability, mood, and bias to colors. The data collected from the three mood perception tests will be quantified and compared with one another to find if red spectrum of light influences a person’s mood. The result of this study will prove valuable to learning, working, and commercial environments and prove the answers to the myth that life is better looking through rose-colored glasses.
