Why is the notification button so visually satisfying?

Does anyone else feel like this 😂? When i see the orange notification button in my notifications tab , for some reason, i feel quite excited and satisfied. Even though the notification might be something uninteresting, it's still very appealing to me, why is this? Is it something to do with the colour orange?

  • From my limited knowledge of color theory, it might be the bright orange that is complimentary to the blue bar. And this generation has been trained to respond to notifications that appear. It's satisfying to check an update nowadays. It's pretty normal, so don't worry about it. I get excited, too, when someone comments back or something. :)

    • You got me excited again... 😂😂

    • Show All
    • This could become a vicious circle of never ending notifications 😂😂But yeah I think it must be clever use of colours!

    • Well at least we'll always be excited. And I think colors and mind psychology is interesting, so... yeah. haha

  • Because you know someone interacted with you.
    (well, at least in the past it meant that). And most of the times, you're expecting something positive and not like a work email, or spam or something like that.
    You definitely know that someone bothered to interact with you, either because they liked an opinion, or are completing it, or are just asking you for details (means they're interested in what you have to say)

    That's what it means toto me, although lately I've enabled the other notifications, and most of the times, it doesn't mean that :( I feel like I still want those notifications, but maybe on a separate button, so that I'll still feel the way I described because someone actually interacted with me.

  • Everyone likes getting mail in this sense, we all like brown paper packages delivered to the door, it's like a surprise gift, the orange color is meant to grab your attention.
