Isabel de Yzaguirre's insight:

Moraleja: 
por eso somos necesarios los Expertos en Color. A parte de Formación y estudio, quizás tenemos unas condiciones fisiológicas para ello...

Un 25 % de la población tiene un cuarto cono y ve los colores tal como son, igual que las abejas. Según el test, estoy entre éllas y no por poco. Quizás por ello me dedico al Color.

 

Sea lo que sea, los tetracrómatas, o cuatricrómatas, vemos los colores en las franjas del púrpura/azul, verde, rojo y amarillo, y esto me hace pensar en la clasificación de Colores Primarios Psicológicos que hizo Ewald Hering y que son la base de la Notación NCS, el oficial para la prescripción de colores en España, referido a pinturas.

 

La autora ha publicado el test a raíz de la famosa discusión de los vestidos y su color, y concluye que probablemente, un cuatricrómata lo vea tal cual es independientemente de las condiciones de iluminación.
