This experiment aims to further understand the influence of color on emotion recognition, and to understand the influence of warm and cool colors and neutral colors on emotion recognition judgment. This experiment is a mixed experiment design of 3 (background colors) × 3 (emotional face picture types), with the background colors (cool/warm/white) as the inter-subject variables, and the emotional face picture types (positive/negative/neutral) as the intra-subject variables. The dependent variables are the Likert 5-point rating scores and the subjective evaluation scores of the colors given by subjects. The experimental results show that whether it is a positive emotional face, a neutral emotional face or a negative emotional face, the scores of the warm-color background group and the cool-color background group are significantly different. The scores of the cool-color background group and the white background group are significantly different. The warm-color background group and the white background group have significant differences in scores. The average score of the warm-color background group is greater than the average score of the neutral background group than the average score of the cool-color background group. The background color has an influence on facial emotion recognition. Compared with cool tones and neutral tones, individuals in warm tones are more inclined to make pleasant judgments. Warm colors are usually used as emotional clues to express warmth and happiness; cool colors are usually used as emotional clues to express cool or calm; neutral colors are usually used as emotional clues to express peace.
