Colors are amazing! They constitute all of the things that are considered to be beautiful or ugly. Can you imagine a world without colors? It would be dull, heavy and lifeless. Despite making the things look beautiful or ugly, colors also enable us to easily describe the things around us.
We can say a lot depending on what color is the thing we want to describe.
But, did you know that even though we all know the names of all the colors, still my red is not the same as your red?
Yes, we can all agree that all the stop signs are red, the same as strawberries, blood and Santa Claus’ suit. But your red and my red are not the same. According to Joseph Carrol, a color vision scientist, he is sure that we actually don’t see the same colors.
He claims that it’s up to the individual how he/she perceives certain colors. It’s all connected to the experiences we previously had in the world around us and how they have affected our brains.
Whatever you have seen up to now affects the way we perceive the things around us. And since all people are different, their perception of colors is different too.
So, before we continue with our discussion let me first ask you – how’s your brain doing? Do you feel good? Yes? Okay.
