That's definitely color blindness.

It's strange, though, that it hasn't gotten a politically correct acronym yet... Like CVD for color vision deficiency.

I have trouble with red+green, but actually it's only the red color component that is the problem. I perceive red color less vividly than other colors, so I for example have trouble viewing red text on a black background, while I clearly see green text on a black background.

So, if you feel that more computer geeks are more color blind than average, vote "blind".


No, that is not correct. The question was if you were color blind, not if you think that others are color blind... Freely interpreting the question as what you think that it should be really would skew the statistics...

Despite everything, the person most likely to be fooling you next is yourself.
