Meanwhile, we always want to know more about a person just by looking at him/her, especially if our counterparts are in no hurry to talk about himself. We pay attention to some details that can characterize him – what clothes he wears, how he speaks, and what gestures he makes.

One called it the “Color Wheel of Terror.” National Terrorism Advisory System is a terrorism threat advisory scale used by the United States Department of Homeland Security since April 26, 2011. On December 16, 2015, Secretary Johnson activated the alert for the first time. New York Times journalist David Martin suggested expanding the number of colors in order to define threats more precisely.
