i prefer "color deficient". yes. very. failed 4 of those tests. it's especially hard when rendering with subtle colors ("this is green.... right?") however, no one seems to know until i mention it. my entire wardrobe is black, brown or neutral anyway

why do you ask?

Very common in Men???. My last boss was color blind ( going back 12 yrs. ) so his wife got to chose all the colors...I swear he could have done better himself, totally ruined a number of our buildings. Ended up photographing them in B/W just not to highlight the bad color selections.

ya, it says if you're RG color blind that you will see a 2!

I tried to find it in there, but my lack of color-blindness is preventing me...

drums please, Fab?

whatever you do DO NOT tell anyone you're color blind unless you're really, really color blind (i.e. everything's grey)

you will never be asked opinions regarding color schemes ~ picking out paint, stone, flooring, etc.

they (the MAN) will always hold that on you: 'well, what do you know, you're color blind anyway ...'.

*is scared for life, boo hoo*

as for me, i see color perfectly @'~

I am very slightly color blind as well. I have a hard time distinguishing between olive drab and maroon at night or very sutble pink. I usually resort to color correcting mathematically with RGB values. None of my clients know about this and don't have to. I was just wondering how common it was in our field. Thanks for the replys.

I definately see a 2. And I certainly agree with givemeastamp. If one more person starts pointing at things around the room and asking me what color they are...

You can see the 2 in the last one (even if you're not colorblind) by stepping away from your monitor about 8-10 feet.

I'm RG color blind. I stopped telling people becasue I got bored with people putting say a yellow pencil in front of me and going "what color is that!!"

I've always been curious as to the subjective perception of color, not so much if people see blue instead of yellow and all that, but whether people see the spectrum in reverse (relative to myself of course).

deviating from the thread a little, but intersting nonetheless $:)

I am thankful to percieve color very well.
Something like 1 out of 18 men is colorblind.

rhombus head-

i know what you mean. what if someone had negative vision... there' no way to tell as they would learn the names of the colors differently. CRAZY!
