Out of the Blue

Thanks Ant for sending along a link to a Reverse Color Blindness Test, perhaps recalling my previous mentions of being color blind myself. I found a couple of tidbits in this article particularly illuminating: I have always have excellent night vision and an immunity to camouflage, and never before realized that these are likely positive side effects of my condition: "Color vision deficient people have a tendency to better night vision and, in some situations, they can perceive variations in luminosity that color-sighted people could not. It might also be worth mentioning how U.S. Army discovered that color blind people could spot “camouflage” colors that fooled those with normal color vision!" Go figure!

My Grandpa was a tool and die maker and his colorblindness allowed him to see manufacturing defects that his normal-sighted co-workers couldn't see. I inherited his colorblindness but I haven't found it particularly useful in my web design career It's nice to know I have a higher probability of spotting ninjas in the dark though.
