How Colors Control Your Mind

The Cracked Podcast #29 April 7, 2014

You’re being mind-controlled right now. The CIA and the NSA aren’t to blame — just holding a cool drink can make you decide someone has a “cold” personality. Just hearing words associated with “old people” is enough to make you walk at a slower pace, and even blind people feel more awake when you shine blue light at their face. On today’s podcast, Cracked editors Jack O’Brien, Dan O’Brien (no relation) and Robert Brockway discuss all the tiny things that hack our brain every minute of every day.


You’ll learn which shade of pink stops violent psychopaths in their tracks and how the color blue can prevent suicide. Throw on your headphones and click play above.
