Red green color blindness is actually pretty common, in men at least. There was this thing at the tech museum in San Jo where you looked at this circled with all kinds of green and red dots on it in different shades. If you saw a five in the middle of the circle you weren't color blindand a three you were red-green color blind.

all i know is girls know more color than boys do. hehe

i mean speaking from experience, within our group, we'd usually argue as to what hue we are seeing. the girls would say it's lilac or lavender.. or baby pink...

and then the boys would disagree and say that it's "JUST PINK" or "JUST PURPLE"... it's like all they know are the primary and secondary colors.

Yeah but guys aren't necessarily totally color blind like that. Sometime's guys just plain don't care. They like things simple, why do there need to be 100 different shades of pink? It's all pink so it gets called pink

"Two people might make all the same color discriminations, and use color language in all the same ways, so that outwardly (from a third-person perspective) we would have no reason to say that colors don't "look the same way" to them. But how can we be sure? Isn't it possible that a red object looks to me exactly the same way a green object looks to my functional twin, and vice versa?"

Honestly, who cares? This is a dumb-ass question compared to the question of consciousness :)

But we could probably infer similarities in perception based on psychological interpretations.

Check out the Luscher Color Test.

My results say:

PROBLEM UNDERLYING THE PRESENT STRESS -- Anxiety and restless dissatisfaction, either with his circumstances or with unfulfilled emotional needs, have produced considerable stress. He tries to escape into idealized atmosphere of sympathy and understanding, or into a substitute environment of aestheticism and beauty.

DESIRED OBJECTIVE -- Longs for a tender and sympathetic bond and for a situation of idealized harmony. Has an imperative need for tenderness and affection. Susceptible to anything esthetic.

CURRENT INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR -- Very exacting in the standards he applies to his choice of partner and seeking a rather unrealistic perfection in his sex life.

Wow, that makes me sound almost like a pervert or something.

My fav color is Turquoise.
Posted 2/28/08
PROBLEM UNDERLYING THE PRESENT STRESS -- Afraid that he may be prevented from achieving the things he wants and therefore demands that others should recognize his right to them.

DESIRED OBJECTIVE -- Urgently in need of rest and relaxation, peace and affectionate understanding. Feels he has been treated with lack of consideration and is upset and agitated as a result. Regards his situation as intolerable as long as his requirements are not complied with.

CURRENT INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR -- Unhappy at the resistance he feels whenever he tries to assert himself. However, he believes that there is little he can do and that he must make the best of the situation.

Select the last remaining color to view your results.

It kinda reminds me when i was sitting in psych AP and we were discussing seeing sounds and like smelling colors or something. I thought "What if a person saw a color like blue but everyone else sees it as red or yellow? Could it happen to your brain where you see a different color than everyone else is seeing?"


You mean synaesthesia? It could be happening to you right now and you'd never even realise it.
