Abstract:

This experiment was designed to determine whether there was a natural association of color and pitch that was common among military officers of three nationalities. Fifty military officers were used as subjects. The analysis of experimental data was to produce additional evidence for information display design employing the senses for audition and vision in presenting redundant information. The data analysis indicated that the amount of transmitted information was less than one bit when the maximum possible was 2.32 bits. There was a significant difference in the amount of transmitted information per nationality though no learning trends among nationalities were observed. The Korean subjects average number of trials to criterion was significantly different from the Americans but not from the Indonesians. A significant association of selected color combinations and tones existed for the Indonesian and American subjects. Author
