Preferred flesh colors were evaluated using a person’s picture as a sample to discuss the dependence of these colors on the memory color. First, the subjects were asked to color the face in their own picture (1) on the basis of their memory, (2) with reference to the reflection of their face in the mirror, and (3) with a preferred color. No clear correlation was observed between these colors and the measured facial color of the subjects. The memory color was correlated with that used in the second case mentioned above but not with the preferred color, i.e., the third case.
