XKCD Color Survey

10 Jun

The guy behind xkcd did a colour survey relatively recently. The idea behind the survey was to test users visual perception of colours, so what they identify as being red, green, blue and so forth. Moreover, it tests the differences in perception between males and females (and the maturity of the responses :) ).

If you’re particularly interested in colour, here are some links:

    Heh heh heh.
    I like “Sea Foam” and “Spindrift”. Interesting that there are two kinds of melon on there. We could have Munsell colour charts, and then Melon colour charts, perhaps? :)

    I thought it was interesting that Strawberry was defined as pink by the ladies. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a pink strawberry :D
