I've been thinking about this for years now, but have you ever wondered if our perception of color varies from person to person:

Like, what I see as red, may actually be in fact, (what I see as) green to somebody else.
But what I recognize as green, they would recognize as red.

See where I'm going with this? x]

I've thought the exact same thing for ages, and I was thinking about it this morning

Get off the weed, man.

It wouldn't work because of the spectrum and light waves and all that stuff.

5. Click on the file "onestop."
6. Listen.

Yea, my friends have talked about this before. Your green is my red, because thats just what i have been accustomed to call it. Technically, we are referring to a spectrum of light which we all see as the same thing. In other words, green is green to everyone who isn't color blind.

But, i see what u mean. And i thought the same thing, just for fun.

Yes, yes i do.

There are many different things that you may see/hear/think, and from that think do other people see/hear/think the same.

You're unique, just like everyone else.

i see where you're going. and it's interesting.

my dad is colourblind, so what we see as red, he sees as grey... but what you're saying is that everyone sees stuff differently... sorry but i don't think they would. but it's like impossible to prove or disprove i guess.

my friend says the same thing

and, if you're sitting in a room full of people listening to one person speak, are you all hearing the same thing?

yea I've always wondered that too , I used to wonder about sounds and touch and taste as well. what if everybody's favorite color was really exactly the same, but just given different names?

LOL, my friends always roll thier eyes when I mention this theory.
Statistics can be used to prove anything.

14% of people know that.

I've thought about the same thing, as well, but there's no way for us to know any different, although tints can give us clues (we can all agree about shades of darkness from lightness to darkness; after all, we can see in lightness, etc.), so I guess we'll just have to trust ourselves.

ehh...its possible that it can be a few shades different in the spectrum...but they wouldnt be complete different colors...unless you are color blind
#17
everyone sees the same color (if they have proper vision.)


maybe the name they associate with that color is different, but that doesnt change the color.
#18
I regularly think about this kind of things.

And seeing as there is no way to describe a color, it is near-impossible to know what others see.
#19
i always think of that, but now notice that for example, things like the black stuff you see when there's no light would change, so some people coulndt see a f*ck with light and some could actually see in lack of light.i think that changes in colour perception would be possible in animals of different species, but between humans, i dont think so.

It does to some extent, but not as greatly as a red---->green shift. All people see roughly the same amount of the electromagnetic spectrum, the part that we call visible light. For someone to see red as green would imply that their green was in the ultraviolets. Other species do see other parts of the spectrum, outside of visible light, i.e. mosquitoes see in infrared.

not sure but a long time ago I had a teacher who explained that when we look at something it's actually every color but the one we see?....

Like say there is a blue shirt , it is actually every other color but blue therefore we see blue. idk.

I always thought the colour thing to. But I can to terms and accepted that there is no way to prove it, so ya.

That has to do with how seeing works. When white light hits an object, some colors are absorbed and others are reflected. The ones that are reflected are, obviously, a mix of all the ones that were not absorbed. When the object absorbs every color except, say blue, it reflects the blue, and we see the object as the color blue.

if it's blue then that means that blue light is reflected, while all the others are absorbed (I think)

Thinking without language is possible because of what linguists call the random relationship between sound and meaning. This is illustrated by many languages having different sound patterns for the same concept. "Water" in English, "eau" in French, "agua" in Spanish, etc. Animals without any apparent language (constant sound patterns linked to concepts) are capable of thought. Even relatively unintelligent animals like pigeons and mice can be trained to do simple things.

omg this is exactly what i thougth it would be. my friend brought this to my attention a few months back. yea it is wierd isnt it? since then weve each found that we both ponder about wierd **** like that all the time.

smart people wonder about things that go beyond what most people think about because they have a clear grasp on everything else. seems pointless to others, but its like a form of philosophy, if you will. i think itd be safe to guess that you wonder about other things like this?

im colourblind and i see some red as green and vice versa, also applies to blue and purple, pink and white, light orange and yellow, sometimes black and dark green and other close shades.

you can be greatful u not colour blind... people laugh when another is colour blind... i just smile back at them knowing that if they come to the south african bush... the camouflaged lion that waits for them i'll have seen it two hours before.

this is the part that needs explaining... a colour blind person sees camouflage where-as the idiot who sees colour... can't

edit: yeah mac... slight shades mess us around... at least we see it simpler... yes... thats blue... slap

it varys from person to person. my friend and i came to this conclusion basing it apon the fact that everyones cones and rods(what make you see color) are differently laid out, especially when going from male to female as females have more and therefore can see colors more vibrantly than males.
