    I wonder if anyone has proposed an experiment to search for commonalities between people who see the same colors?

    I never heard about this until everyone already had the answer, but I never saw anything except blue and black....maybe people who tend to focus strongly on the most pertinent physical details (like people on the autism spectrum) see the real colors, while people who are better able and accustomed to immediately taking in an image in its entirety are fooled by a visual trick? That would explain why the majority (in an admittedly unscientific poll) see the wrong colors.....

I know I have unusually fine perception of chroma (absolute pitch, perfect color vision, etc.) that might make me more sensitive to the actual colors of the dress.
    I read an article that said that the actual colours of the photo are on the border of white/blue and black/gold.

    So I think it strange if someone can't see the goldy brown of the so-called black.

    Honestly you can't see the gold in this picture with the black painted next to it?

I also painted white, true blue(red and green 0, blue max) with 100 color and about 50% color. You can see that the 50% blue(again red and green 0) is nearly the same color as the blue on the dress and that its far from being white. i didnt want to try to make gold/beige color, because its mix of many colors and cant have "true" gold/beige/lightbrown on photoshop

    But again crap camera and crap white balance. But the color in the picture clearly has no white or black in the dress

    damn you printers for correcting the colour. Or at least, that does look like blue and black to me on the same screen...

    The printed picture I see as white and gold. And the photo you quoted I see as white and gold too. The printer didn't do any correcting.

    OK, after a while of coming back, now it looks like "gold" and "white". and also looking on this old TFT monitor.

    haha, if I only look at the bottom half first it turns to blue and black. My mind is playing tricks on me. I going to let this go.

    I did say in one of my posts that I can see how people might see gold due to the yellow light, but not white. But I still see it as black.

    My eyes are very dark brown, grandson inherited them

    One theory that’s been posted on several forums and social media sites suggests that people who see blue and black have “more high functioning” retina cones, while those who see white and gold have eyes that “don’t work well in dim light” and are more light sensitive.

    Jacquot—who, for the record, sees light blue and gold—doesn’t agree with this idea entirely. “Terms like ‘high functioning’ are relative terms and a bit subjective, and I wouldn’t say that one group is better than the other,” he says. But he does admit that the amount of light that enters the eye can play a role in color perception. Darkly pigmented irises let in less light than light ones, he points out, so eye color could possibly be a factor.
