Do Men and Women See Colors The Same Way?

It's now a scientific fact.......men and women do not see colors the same way because the male and female brains process information about color differenty.  Men are more attuned to seeing fine detail and objects that move rapidly, women are better at differentiating between colors.

Researchers at Brooklyn College and Hunter College in New York City studied participants, all of whom were over the age of 16, had normal color vision and perfect 20/20 vision (either natural or corrected), were asked to view and identify colors across the spectrum from red to violet.  The results:

*  In order for men to see the same color hue as women, they had to view a sightly longer wavelength.
*  Men had more trouble than women discerning specific colors in the center of the spectrum.
*  Men were better able than women to see images that changed rapidly.
