The Way You See Color Reveals THIS About You!

Is your red the same as my red?

Yeah, we both agree that stop signs are red, as are blood, strawberries and superman’s cape. But what’s to say the ‘red’ you see isn’t actually ‘green’ to me? You might be surprised to learn that there’s some pretty concrete evidence to support this theory.

“I think we can say for certain that people don’t see the same colors,” says Joseph Carrol, color vision scientist at the Medical College of Wisconsin.

You see, color perception is a very individual thing. It’s all got to do with our experiences in the world around us and how they impact our brains.

“The circuitry there simply takes in whatever information it has and then confers some sort of perception,” says Carrol.

How’s your brain doing? I’ll give you a second to scrape it off the ceiling before we continue.

You good? Cool. On the topic of color perception, how about we do a little test? Check out the following Playbuzz quiz that’ll help you analyze how your experiences in the world have shaped both you and your perception of color.

So, what results did you get? Do you think they’re accurate? What do you make of the whole ‘color perception’ theory we discussed in this article? Share your thoughts in the comments!
