Abstract

This study investigated the effect of black and blue colour on working memory by comparing the effect of black and blue on recognition memory. This study hypothesized that the participants would recall more words from blue word list than the black word list. There were two experiments conducted in this study with 30 participants for each experiment. In both experiment, participants were presented with a 20 five-letter English words from online word memory test via Zoom. For the first experiment, the words were typed in black colour and the second experiment, the word was typed in blue colour. The first finding suggested that both black and blue colour has significant effect on the working memory. The second finding reported that gender did not significantly affect the ability to recall word in black colour. The third finding said that gender did significantly affect the ability to recall word from blue colour. These findings indicate that there is involvement of black and blue colour in the ability to recall word. This shows that there is a difference in the effect of colour on working memory performance.
