Today’s Awesome Thing is: A YouTube video about color perception.
I’ve wondered for years whether or not people see color the same way. I know that for people who are color-blind, the answer is definitely no! But what about “normally-sighted” individuals? Is it possible that what I see as green is what you would call orange? How would you assess that?
The full answer to those questions may never be known. However, the above YouTube video shows a clip from a BBC documentary that shows that language apparently shapes our perceptions of color. As a result, different people perceive color in different ways. After I got done watching it, I couldn’t help but say, “WOW, AWESOME!”
