Many are confused about the EXIT sign whether it must appear in RED or Green. They Argue that the green one just makes sense. Green is the color of safety, a color that means Go the World Over. Red on the other hand most often means danger, alert, halt, please don't touch. Me I prefer the green one. How about you? Lets vote for the world to see.

Because red means something that you have to do. And the most cases the people use the red color on the exit is that you may exit some time. Normally on emergency exit or the movie theater exit.

Yes, it is a study of color influences in our brains, it's a interesting thing. And that is the effect that red does in our brain.

I prefer the exit sign colored red than green. It's because red can fire adrenaline better than green. I'm tired of green because it always signify of going ahead when at times it is necessary to stop and take a rest.

I didn't think of that. But if there would be adrenaline rush, there will be much brain stimulus resulting to low level of awareness for focusing in a certain situation.

when I was a kid I met a snake and it was at my feet. it was shining dark in color and that made me run so fast yet in a way that I do not strike the ground. my awareness was at its peak but I learned that I should have taken only 3 paces to avoid that snake and never have to run. The disadvantage of adrenaline is it gives unnecessary power.

I prefer the red one, because red can catch people's eyes easilier than green, i always can't focus on the exit if it is green.

Does that mean you are not comfortable with color green in general?

I prefer the color green, exactly what you have said. Green means go and Red means danger and stop. I would rather go for green exit sign as it feels safer.
