Color Temperatures

My name is Sarah Ernst. I am an undergraduate student doing a study on color effects.

The purpose of this study is to gather information on what colors participants will rate as what temperature. You will be asked to rate a series of screens of different colors, using the slider located at the left of the screen, to temperatures between 0 and 200 degrees. Please answer what temperature you would associate with that color.

No personal information will be collected and this study will be completely anonymous.  This study takes only 5 minutes to complete.

You will need have a version of Sun JavaŠ in order to run this experiment. If you do not have this program, a pop up window will direct you to download the program which is completely reliable and safe for download and is from Sun Microsystems, should you choose to do so. It will typically only be Internet Explorer uses who will need this plug-in, the other browsers already have it.

If you have any questions contact me at or my supervisor, John H. Krantz, Ph.D.,
