Do the paint jobs on cars seem much more rich or vivid nowadays than they used to? I mean, (to me at least) the reds somehow seem “redder”, the blues somehow seem “bluer” than they used to.
For example, of the primary colours, what is the “red-est” that red can be? Is there a scientific measurement or standard that defines the colour red, independent of a person’s individual perception of what the colour red is or should be?
And would this have any bearing on people who are colour-blind, say between green and red? Could such a colour-blind person even know what the colour red looks like, or what the colour green looks like in the first place?
If a person could see reds but not greens, (and called a green object red), and if another person corrected him and told him it was green, would this have any meaning at all to the colour-blind person, since he’d never seen the colour green in the first place?
