What color is the sky? Blue, right? But do I see blue the same way you do? Maybe my blue is your pink or my pink is your magenta.
It sounds odd, but after the Internet had a full-blown existential crisis over the color of a dress (white and gold forever!) it has become pretty apparent that not everyone sees all the pretty hues present in a box of Crayola crayons.
For instance, many see a distinctive difference between the shades laser lemon, unmellow yellow, and canary while others view all three as simply “yellow.”
Really, it all boils down to how many cones, or color receptors, you have in your eyes. Professor Diana Derval, a neuro-marketing expert, posted an interesting test that has claims it can determine how many cones you have. After I took the simple test, it was fascinating to see how many people — and creatures — see the world the same exact way I do.
Some critics have said that the test may not be accurate as computer, iPad, and iPhone screens may not display all the colors correctly, but we still found it fascinating!
