      I’m 65, been married to the same wonderful woman for 42 years. And yes I only see the grade school primary colors, can only dance the two-set, and can only three notes (flat, flat-flat, and flat-flat-flat). Oh well, how she still puts up with me I’ll never know.

  2. Замечательно. Все так и есть на самом деле :)

    Hahah! So true! :D

    So now true, I’m a girl and I do classify my colours like the “guy” side!

    • Maybeh:

      I agree with you! OTN, I’m not even really a tom-boy or anything like that. Who calls a color “moss” anyway? Lol

  6. Alia:

    Im a girl and i dont think the female side is complete. where is coral, indigo, royple and fuschia? red and yellow definitely have more shades than that. im just sayin

  7. Skylar:

    It’s actually been proven that the majority of men cannot see as many distinct colors as the majority of women.

  8. Asianguy:

    i think this whole thing is pretty sexist in thinking that all men dont see colors the same way men do. and you have all your colors wrong, you should separate by tint, grey, shade and mutes. that teal should be a lot closer to blue than the spindrift. ~(b.s. visual communications)

    • JediKnightBoB:

      You think it’s sexist to say that men don’t see colours the same way as men?

      You’re not making any sense, man!

    So…Women see colors much more vibrant and colorful than men? If this is so…How can we really test this? I do not think this is possible unless I can see thru my wife’s eyes. Then and only then will I be able to tell a difference. Does anyone have a better test?
