    If it makes you feel any better (it probably doesn't), I seem to have female depth perception, at least from inside a car (I can't see or feel the outside surface of my car, how am I supposed to know exactly how close I am to other cars!?).

    On a side note, I've wondered whether a typical male or a typical female would be a naturally better contact hitter in baseball; depth perception versus peripheral vision, which wins out?

    My husband has bad depth perception and he drives a semi. With double trailers.

    He has trouble finding stuff, but his color perception is probably better than mine.

    For a long time I thought my mom couldn't see colors right, but then a lot of people couldn't see them right, so after awhile I decided that if I was encountering multiple people that couldn't see colors right, that it's probably me that is messed up, not them. My dad has blue/green color blindness so it's possible mine could be a tiny bit off, even though girls usually aren't color blind. But it is blue and green that my mom and I always disagreed on.

    And, yeah, this thread is kind of sexist. Shame on you, prp! Shame!

    It's rare thing, but some women could be a Tetrachromat.

    This is a colour challenge

    This will show some examples of what colour blindness might be.

    I knew about my problem distinguishing between blue and purple, but the yellow and orange was new to me.

    It's not. But the idea that guys are inherently bad at something because they are guys is. Unless it's, like, breastfeeding.

    It's not that guys are inherently bad at seeing. It's just different kinds of seeing. Men do tend to have better spacial recognition than females (hence the stereotype that females are bad drivers) whereas females are better at identifying colors. It has to do with evolution in a way. Guys hunted (need spacial recognition for that) and women gathered things like berries (a difference in color could be a difference between nutrients and poison).

    Not sexist, it's just like how men are generally stronger than women and women are generally more flexible than men. Physical characteristics.
