Color is subjective and people see colors differently sometimes wildly differently. Where someone sees the color red a different person will see orange or yellow. This survey is designed to find a common ground for defining color names.
I didn’t some up with this test, it was stolen directly from Randall Patrick Munroe (XKCD) and he deserves all the credit. After two weeks of running this test he stopped accepting new submissions and displayed his results. I am looking to do a longer study of color and how color changes over the years.
