Because you only see a 3 it means you're yellow/green colour blind. Sucks to be you!
User avatar #90 to #53 - blakehill (08/02/2013) [-]
I would say it shows 3 and 8. The 3 is clearly shown in the "light red/pink" color, but it finishes the 8 with the orange/yellow color. During my "physical" when enlisting for the marines, this one of the cards exactly. I literally told the guy "technically it's a 3 because the 3 is one solid, separate, color. But, factoring in the orange, it's an 8. He told me that's one of the best/smart-ass responses he's ever heard. Also, he said i wasn't colorblind.
User avatar #96 to #90 - thirdjess ONLINE (08/02/2013) [-]
That's the point. There's three types of colour blindness. Red/Green, in which your reds and greens appear more as a mottled brown. Yellow/Green in which your yellows/greens, and your blues/purples are indistinguishable, and finally monochromatic colour blindness in which everything is grey.

So if you only see a 3 as this man did, you're yellow/green colourblind. If you see an 8 you're not colourblind at all. If you see nothing you're red/green colourblind.

I also took a colour blindness test and my eyesight is so accurate the result wasn't even visible. Usually it comes up with 'red receptive cones weak', apparently.

Women are actually statistically more likely than men to possess an additional wavelength photoreceptor in the middle of the visible color range, allowing them to distinguish individual shades of color in the visible light spectra better than those without the extra photoreceptor.

It doesn't significantly alter the actual range of colors they can see, but it helps distinguish individual shades in it more accurately. So yes, women are statistically likely to be able to see colors a guy cant.
(some guys can have it, and some girls could be missing it, but its still cool)
#19 to #11 - ROTFLcopter **User deleted account** (08/02/2013) [-]
Well of course we can distinguish the colors too, we just choose not to give a **** because there is absolutely no need to differentiate between green apple, emerald, and lime green.

He means that biologically, no, you aren't normally physically capable of perceiving some color differences women are. Has nothing to do with whether men give a **** or not.

User avatar #58 to #11 - runescapewasgood (08/02/2013) [-]
the color of light is because of the frequency of the waves... not the wavelength retard
#113 to #58 - harleycurnow (08/02/2013) [-]
Wavelength and frequency are opposite, as wavelength increases, frequency decreases so he was right, and so were you, retard.
#162 to #11 - Rascal (08/02/2013) [-]
no women just care way to much about colors. why do gay people care to much about colors if they have less color reseptive senses?
#262 to #11 - bigmanblue (08/02/2013) [-]
there is a series of books called the lightbringer series in which magic is dependant on the ability to see light so the people who have those additional recepters are called superchromats and are better at magic

Men are statistically more likely to not give a **** if their hallway is a slightly different tint of color.
User avatar #23 to #11 - vleasian (08/02/2013) [-]
that's because women had to pick berries and some berries were poisonous
User avatar #149 to #23 - Fgner (08/02/2013) [-]
That actually makes 0 sense. Even colorblind animals can do distinguish poisonous berries from non-poisonous. Plus color has very little to do with it with most berries and fruits, because they are all brightly colored.

A guy at my high school seemed to like learning the names of various shades. He must have just bought one of those wall painting books (the ones with a different colour on each page) and memorized them in his free time. He'd ask other people what a particular shade of a colour was called, then laugh at them and call them poor, uncultured or something similar if they got it wrong.
People would then call him queer, a girl, gay etc... But he never stopped. I'm glad he didn't go to the same Uni as me, he's probably still doing it.

It's known that if you have the name for a color in your vocabulary, your brain will start recognizing it and differentiating it from other colors

The "stereotype" that women see more color distinctions than men probably stems from the fact that in old traditional society women often had to knit, sew, repair clothing what have you. In order to, well, fix a pair of brown pants for instance, they generally had to find the correct shade of brown, the correct "name" of the brown they were looking for that would blend with the pants. And well, different spools of thread are called by different names like "midnight lilac" vs "obsidian panther" or similar. Ultimately, if you're in a business that relies on such distinctions, like graphic design, you will start to see these distinctions more clearly than the average folk.

I'm probably not explaining this very well, and there's probably over commentors who have covered this but there's my contribution.
User avatar #65 to #55 - warioteam (08/02/2013) [-]
I thought it was explained well.
User avatar #106 to #55 - kyouko (08/02/2013) [-]
No, you're explaining it correctly.

Additional slightly unrelated info:
Apparently the normal human eye can differentiate between around a million to 5 million different color shades, whereas a trained eye can double that up.
User avatar #144 to #55 - Fgner (08/02/2013) [-]
I would like to correct you:

The "stereotype" is actually genetically accurate. Most human beings are trichromatic, which is good enough. We can tell all the major colors, make distinctions between shades, all is good. But many women have tetrachromatism. This means they can see even MORE shades (not colors - just shades).

So no it's not a stereotype, it's true.

Although you explained it perfectly and that definitely does attribute to people seeing different shades.
User avatar #301 to #144 - pottslande (08/02/2013) [-]
Eh, the way I know it tetrachromatism is a slightly different thing

It's true that most humans are trichromates. This means we have three color receptors: Blue, Red and Green. These three color receptors combine into all the other colors and shades we can see.

Some animals have more than one color receptor. The mantis shrimp is famous for having the most-sixteen. This enables them to see infinitely more colors, extending into the ultraviolet spectrum. A theorized human tetrachromat would have the Yellow color receptor, which could combine with the Blue, Green and Red to create several different colors.

This theorized fourth color receptor was found to be carried on the X chromosome, therefor it is more likely to show up in women. HOWEVER, there's a snag to this: another theory postulates that most women who have this cone are unable to access it. This is because our modern world is tailored for trichromates. We have buildings, signs, computers, streets all painted with the colors we know. The idea is that with these color receptors, use it or lose it.
User avatar #322 to #301 - Fgner (08/03/2013) [-]
In fact there are far more animals capable of seeing ultraviolets and infrared than the mantis shrimp, just so you know. The coolest feature of the mantis shrimp's eyes, imo, would actually be the structure of the eye. Which allows them to filter the spectrum at will, adjust much better to changes in light, view polarized and circularly polarized light as well as, get this, use one eye to get 3 dimensional vision using a system of trinocular pupils in each eye.

Mantis shrimp have good vision, but a ton of underwater creatures do, since polarized light is so easy to use to identify potential mates and such. It's a real bitch finding some ass in the pitch black. So - not near as awesome that they can see all those colors as it seems.

But back on topic - you're pretty damn wrong there. Animals don't choose what genes are active or not - they simply are or aren't. There is virtually no need for a ton of things, like the uvula, appendix, a couple parts of the brain, yet they don't just "not work". In fact, they work when we don't want them to. Hell - a better example would be left handed-ness. If you theory was correct, and people's environment can cause genes to be so adversely effected, there would be no more lefties. Because the world is tailored to righties!

Plus, how can you "tailor" a world for trichromats? There would be no difference between anything, it's just tetrachromatics see more colors and probably do interior design much more fabulously. Genetics isn't exactly a "use it or lose it" deal - especially things like cones that always form when someone has the genes. The structure is there, and it will be used.

If you look at the hexadecimal colour spectrum there are gazillions (which is a real unit, trust me, I'm on the Internet) of shades of 'black' that are actually just grey.

I'd like to think of pink as just a light red, i cant really call it a color in general, if someone were to ask me i would probably just say "oh you know that's a light red" pink? what is this?, I mean why does there necessarily have to be a billion different shades for one shade of color, like EX:baby blue, light blue, sky blue... In the end it's just blue with small differences, could be .01 lighter than one other shade of blue, but does it really matter by a drastic change? (i'm probably just over-analyzing everything forgive me)

It's the make up industry so they can sell Cherry Bliss or Sugar Vagina lipsticks which are 3 shades apart.

Cons of woman:
> Pregnant
> When not pregnant, menstruation.
> When not the above, menopause.
> No penis (this means a variety of activities and conveniences are taken from you)
> Has to take much better care of themselves (because let's be fair - girls have an image to uphold, guys don't give a **** ).
> Can't be Batman (and Catwoman is a fraud).

Pro Man:
> Born to be more capable physically.
> At the cost of communication and emotions, the brain of a male is designed for logical thinking and awesome **** .
> Don't have to shave that body hair (unless you're Sasquatch).
> Penis ('nough said.)

Also, not all women have a sharper sense of smell, not all women can see more colors, not all can hear or see better - in fact women have many more afflictions of the sight than males - Men can too, it's called prostate. You also forget that there is a rather massive population of women who are incapable of cumming or at least it is extremely difficult for. Cum like a man, or cum once a month? - body hair is fine on a dude, remember? Doesn't even do anything bad! - And men don't smell bad if they bathe regularly. The only reason you'd find women nice smelling in the same conditions as a dude are pheromones and **** .

Meh, the majority of young and/or lower-middle class (and up) women do take care of themselves. It's a standard they set for themselves or society sets for them that they strive to fit.

Sure, my fiance doesn't give a **** until she has to go somewhere, and then she has to get ready. Although to be fair, if it's CVS or some **** she's wearing her slippers.

It's true, it's some kind of evolutionary thingy to help them find berries more easily.
