I just read a blog that sent me to a cool little colour hue test. You can find it here.
I've been convinced for a long time that we do not all see colour in the same way. A personal example for me is that I sometimes see purple when someone else will call the same hue blue. At one time I thought this was a semantic issue but when comparing colour during a workshop I realized that when shifting from blue to purple along shade cards I thought the change happened earlier. Perhaps that means I'm more conscious of the red?
I got a 35 on the scale. I'd be curious to hear the results others get. The test also checks for age and gender at the end and gives you a range of scores on what similar testers scored. I think I'll do a little more research to see how this might be affecting my design work.
