Is Your Red The Same As My Red?

That's deep. 0_o

Now back to my colouring... wait... what if the colours I use are different from the ones you see?! D8

I'm color-deficient, always identifying colors wrong, so I've kinda thought about this.. I fantasize about getting someone else's "vision" broadcast to my mind's eye and just marveling at how wayyy off their perception of normal is from mine.

I think my borhter is supposed to be partically colour blind, but I don't know how much.
It would be weird to see how other people view and interpret things differently, and not just colours either. The only thing I can think of is telepathy, but sciene hasn't figured out how to do that yet. Perhaps some kind of hat...? XP

You know, that is really deep. I worked in the paint department for 3 years and became quite keen on creating custom paint formulas by just looking at them. A common thing people say is "I want pure red." So I show them the paint chips and I have them pick out what they believe to be true red. About 99% of them choose the ACTUAL pure red. They always chose either deep pink or light burgundy. I know this because 'deep pink' colors that people think is 'red' is actually white paint that we add red to (approx. 116oz white and 12oz red pigment per gallon). And 'light burgundy' is actually magenta paint that we add several different pigments to make it appear redder (approx 116oz magenta and 12oz other colors per gallon). The true color red CANNOT possibly be made in the store since it is a primary color, it's all made at the factory using trade secrets (literally says that on the can).

So um, yeah. This interesting [/rant]

Lol, trade secrets! X3
But yeah, that is pretty interesting. Thanks. ^_^

Yeah, that get's into the another interesting issue of how color is not only perceived, but how it is recreated with light or pigments.  I took a class once that was all about how to make sure what you see on your screen (light) matches as best you can on a printer (pigment).

Anyways, it's late and I'm tired.  How do you explain sleep to someone who's never slept?

How do you explain dreams to someone who's never had a dream? =P

I myself have some tone-blindness.
Black and navy blue register in my eyes as the same color. Only when I can place examples of both side-by-side, can my eyes discern the difference.
But, take away the black sample, and my eyes will immediately identify the navy blue as black. The same trick can happen when two  chroma of a color are too close together.
