Not if you have deuteranopia, Daltonism or achromatopsia (all medical terms for color blindness)<br />
<br />
50% of women are tetrachromatic, which means they have 4 types of cone receptors instead of the usual 3 (trichromatic). They can actually see more colors. For example, in a rainbow, trichromatics can see 7 colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. But tetrachromatics can distinguish 10.<br />

It also seems to be true that women, in general, are better able differentiate colors in the red-orange range of the color spectrum. That's why a woman may see ob<x>jects as crimson, Chinese red, maroon or tomato and an man will see red.

I've always wondered that! I mean really how do we know? I can see what red is to me, and I learned that from a standard color chart, but how would I know if my red is different than yours? It's red to you too.

Well not if you are color blind, I had a friend run through a red light after I just told her at the stop light keep going unless it turns yellow. I guess I should of thought about that one before she asked me to show her how to drive. I just thought she was Gothic with all the black and grey crap.

We all don't taste the same... so my guess is that even though colors look unique to most of us (there is color blindness) I doubt we all decode it to the exact same thing in our minds... my guess is its similar though,
