Compared to other technical fields-for example, computer security-you can talk about color with lots of people, because everyone can confidently say, ‘that’s red’ or, ‘that’s reddish-orange,’ and can answer questions like ‘What’s your favorite color?’ People are willing to discuss color and color associations even when they don’t know anything technical.
