"Primary perception" affects everything else. Eg, the emotional effects
of colour affect how information is processed. In your case, you
apparently associate a multi-coloured information screen with "a
colouring book for children", which brings up a negative response. This
is also a nice example of how emotional responses are affected by
culture and personal experience.

Not to mention that "perception" is a fuzzy concept, covering everything
from highly focused attention to sub-aware response, so that any
discussion about design will be as fuzzy as the implicit assumptions
about perception.

Quite fuzzy statements,
compared to well  justified
and clear typographic  rules. :-)

Touche. :-)

But keep in mind that since the rules are about perceptions, and perceptions change (eg, they are subject to fashion), the rules change too.

It's called an "opinion" because it's not a fact.
