Abstract or Summary
  • This study examined the effect that three environmental hues had on subjects' work performance and on mood levels of anxiety, depression, and arousal in an office work environment. Pre-test post- test measurements of differences in work performance and mood levels were used to test twelve hypotheses. Work performance was measured by using an errors-to-words-typed score, and mood levels were measured by use of the Eight State Questionnaire. A total of 45 female subjects ages 18 - 24 were tested individually; 15 in the red/warm hue office environment, 15 in the blue-green/cool environment, and 15 in a white/neutral environment. Subjects completed typical, office related tasks during a minimum of one hour in the office environment. Results of the t-test analyses showed no significant differences between the 3 hue groups for work performance or mood levels of anxiety, depression and arousal. However, mean anxiety level and mean depression level scores were slightly higher on both the pre-test and post-test for subjects working in the office with white/neutral walls than for those subjects working in the identical office space when the walls were red/warm and blue-green/cool.
