I did well on the test, with only a few tiny mistakes, all of them in the blue range. Blue is my least favourite part of the colour spectrum. And I have blue eyes. I wonder if there is any significant correlation between favourite colours and colour sensitivity? Between eye colour and colour sensitivity? I know that men almost uniformly have less sensitive colour discrimination than women. I wonder what other genetic factors correlate with colour sensitivity? Do gay men have finer colour sense than straight ones, for example?
