Women See More Colors Than Men
Assuming you are a male reader and in a relationship with a female, you may have experienced disagreeing with your girlfriend over the colour of something. The research does show that women are superior when it comes to seeing colours. In a study by the University of Maryland, the results showed that the ability to see the color red is only found on the X chromosome, meaning that women clearly have the advantage. Since the ability to distinguish colors is based on being able to see the colors red, blue and green, it is apt to say that men are (somewhat) color-blind compared to women. But why is this? It is thought that there is an evolutionary reason for this difference. Back in the hunter-gatherer days, women had to learn to pick between colorful fruits in order to avoid choosing a fruit that could potentially kill her and her family.
