A forum for users of any of my texts but really for anyone interested in interpersonal communication, the fundamentals of human communication, and public speaking.
Culture and Colors
I just got an e-mail from my editor’s assistant saying that a user of TICB from Ghana says that blue is not the color of joy—as I say in the table on culture and color. I’ll have to check other sources to investigate this further. But, this e-mail led me to think that it would be interesting—if you’re teaching a culturally diverse class—to ask students about the meanings of color in their cultures and then compare them with the table in the text and the sources cited.
