    men from mars women from venus… Yes we are completely different

  2. As a graphic designer, I see SOO much of this! There actually is a SCIENCE to color. Different colors do emote different emotions whether known or unknown to the viewer.

    In my opinion Men and Women are two entirely different people.
    Absolutely they see different colors.I think that’s how they are attracted towards each other.

    I believe this is pseudo science, not because it’s false but because the reasons are not listed. Women may be more attentive to color because as growing up they are exposed to more activities and culture with color, just make up alone has dozens of colors – while men / boys toys dont go beyond primary set of colors. Human brain is shaped, not created already preloaded with the abilities

    well, i came to this site to get an answer so I’m now know it’s YES for sure. I’m also wondering about patterns of colors like woven rugs and shirts. Women are more intense meaning and movement makers. Wear less black and more gay colors if you wear solids, got it.

  6. It could very well be the case. I know that most men I know have no taste in colour or clothing, but it could just be our culture. (Italian nad Japanese men, for instance, are known to colour coordinate very well!)

  7. You all are stupid *Author too* says:

    They do not see different colors they only name them differently. We distinguish the colors but we do not give them different names because that would just leave way too many names and it would get ridiculous.. Obviously none of you are men and do not recognize this notion,

    There is no doubt in my mind that men and women perceive colour differently, how much is genetic and how much is due to social conditioning it seems is still up to debate but don’t use this to justify misandry. Twice in this article you’ve claimed that because women “care” more about colour men MUST care less about other things as well. Stick to the issue you sexist bitch.

    Reading this, I totally understand everything they are saying, because I see it every day, dealing with customers. Yet, I’m a guy, who happens to be good with colour, well beyond most of my female clients. Funny thing is, I’m just a schmuck who fell into the place where I own a paint store, so suddenly I care about colour. I think the caring argument is much stronger than any physiological difference.
