Scaling of Selected Elements of the Sensory Impressions of the Tactile Sense
Katarzyna Krawczyk , Piotr Tomasik , Jacek Strojny
AbstractPeople from various regions of the world were questioned for their personal associations of three components of the sense of touch i.e. smoothness/coarseness, hardness/ softness and warm/cold with peripheral colors of the rainbow e.g. either violet or red color. Links of violet color to smoothness, hardness and cold and red color to coarseness, softness and warm clearly dominated among collected 1433 replies. Thus, the dominating associations could be considered standard. These results will be helpful in attempted construction of standard sensory profiles of the human individuals.
