A new study finds that men and women really do see the world in two vividly different ways.
The research led by Brooklyn College psychology professor Israel Abramov recruited a group of young adults with normal vision to evaluate differences through multiple tests.
Study results showed that men and women examine the color shade of an object differently.
“Across most of the visible spectrum, males require a slightly longer wavelength than females in order to experience the same hue, “the researchers reported.
The study found that longer wavelengths are typically connected to warmer colors. For example, while a female may observe a color as orange the color may appear redder to men. Women also tend to find grass greener than men who usually see it as a yellower hue.
Results also showed that men are less likely to tell the difference between colors lying in the center of the color spectrum such as yellows, greens and blues.
On the other hand, men proved to be adept in detecting quick and small-detailed changes when it is at a distance through tests using thin blinking lights.
