Got a score of 7 in the 20-29 range. Noticed a flaw in the teal-> purplish one as well, but submitted anyway

Scored 19 in a range of 0 to 99 for my age range, so my color acuity is actually pretty good. I always have trouble with teals. I'll say, that's a pretty color blue, and the person I'm with will look at me oddly and say, "Don't you mean green?" I always thought it was my problem, but maybe not. Thanks for the link, it's always cool to discover something new about ones self.

Not too sure about humans, but I heard birds and bees (ooh er matron) see the colours of flowers different than we do. And since nature supposedly adapted these colours to attract birds and bees to help pollenate, it stands to reason we do not see flowers as they should be seen... maybe.

being a spectacled person i can very well relate this do you see things the same way as i do , when i was 21 years old  i had some problems in reading the black board and wondered how could the person sitting in last bench could read the board so easily and i sitting in the third bench could not read it, then one of my friend advised me to go for eye test my first eye test in life, and i realized that my eyesight was -1.75 in both eyes and the eye technician told that you have come so late, how could you not known your sight is weak. I was astonished till now i thought that whatever i see everyone is seeing the same thing. Dont know since when the eyesight started becoming bad, but i never seem to realize it and all time i used to think that everyone sees like me, and when i first wore glasses it was like all HD, then only i realized that all people see things same and i can see like other people only when i wear glasses. This was a very astonishing moment of realization of the clarity that glasses give to eyes so that eyes can retain their original capturing power and transmit to brain.

We all see the color we have been taught is red. Red is nothing more than a word in the English language used to describe many shades of "red". .unless you are color blind or can't see at all.

I read about this before. Fundamentally, there's this question: Do you see "red", or any color for that matter, the same way I see it? I'm stumped about it.
