Interesting article about color perception, titled "Is my red your red?"

The chart is interesting, since I didn't agree with most of the average "best representation" dots of each color. It was done in '72, maybe that's why.

My norms, based on my monitor: Red - up one from shown dot. Orange - down a square. Blue & Yellow - one to the right.

Cool. I remember reading that the Japanese sense of blue & green as seperate was introduced from the west. Of course shades were discerned but conceptualy most shades of blue & green were grouped.
