Men Favorite Color and Why?

Men Like the Color Blue. Blue is a favorite color of both men and women of all ages. However, men have a much stronger preference for blue than women. It may be the calming effect of the color blue that makes it a popular color for both men and women or it could be the association of some shades of blue with authority figures, intelligence, and stability. It's possible that men tend toward blue because they've noticed that women find men in blue attractive whether it's a blue uniform or a blue business suit.
