I thought 5% or something like that actually has a form of color blindness. This does not mean that someone just sees black and white, that form of color blindness is very rare. I must say that I do keep in mind that some people won’t see something red over green or the other way round.

When I was younger I couldn’t tell the difference between purple and blue. They looked almost the same color to me only one was darker. I don’t know what happened but as I got older I could see the shades a lot better. It was really weird.

I would assume that once you learn the color relationships (what you see vs what color it really is) then you shouldn’t have too much of a problem. That’s what’s really cool about humans. We can adapt to some really extraordinary environments. :-)

Online color blind tests are greatly skewed because of monitor differences and all the factors in between. If you really want to know, go see an optometrist.

@xmdsys

I did a couple of days ago, with that link i just wanted people to see how the colorblind test are like and how colorblind people see colors.

Most people think that cause your colorblind you cant see a color at all but it’s not quite like that.

And was quite shocked with the test and how bad i did :0
