Please choose what colors you see on the dress, no matter what the real colors of the dress are.
It's clearly blue and black, and whoever else sees blue and black would be correct.
My sister and her boyfriend saw white and gold and they wouldn't believe me when I said I saw blue and black. She thought I was trying to troll them lol
When I first looked at the photo, I saw black + blue, and thought the entire thing was a hoax.
Last night I took a look at this link http://www.ctvnews.ca/polopoly_fs/1...._620/image.jpg
I saw it as pure white + gold. But when I changed tabs and went back to the image, it changed back to black + blue! At times it has literally morphed
colours right in front of my eyes. It's fascinating.
Without reading the thread, I, specifically, see periwinkle and brown. I did a search to find those two colors together and it matches. I guess this is a trick image or something?
Edit: I don't see black, white, or gold. I hope my brain is not broken. :/
Thanks to crayola I knew what periwinkle looks like. I am just wondering what this debate is about now. Maybe I need to calibrate my monitor. I am so logical.

Same as Aylen
Looks both. First blue/brownish then the same as Aylen.
I am still wondering what this question was asked for?
Me too - off white and diarrhea brown. Do we have defective eyes/brain???
Is this dress bleached or the photo overexposed?
Seems there are more than two/three kinds of viewers. Where does science come in, in relation to the picture of this particular dress? What I have seen about it seems to be about whether or not it is knockoff and the lighting of the image. Do others really see a royal blue like the original?Science tells this depends on each one's background, what we don't know yet is in what concrete respect the two types of viewers are different (well three, if we include those who see both ways).
I find it interesting that people, looking at the same image as I am here, see it as having black, white, or gold (I could see a gold sheen) in it because no matter how many times I look at the image, the empress has no black/white/gold dress.
[I am just rambling today]
Well of course there is black. Not pitch black, just like almost everywhere, and it simply shines in brown/gold whatever. Let's not nitpick more than necessary.
If I had factored in that it could be a washed out photo, over-exposed or that the dress had faded over time I might have made the connection but the original dress was not even posted. Op asked to tell what we saw regardless of the real colors of the dress. I thought it would end up in a discussion about different perceptions.
Not related but you and another person (I recently typed LSI) are giving me a new perspective on LSI. I admit mine was rather limited having an LSI mother. I am starting to give her more credit for her strengths.
I'm wondering how all these people are seeing black and blue. I can maybe see a faint blue for the white stripes but I would mostly just see white. Black I can't see at all.
EII - INTj - Dostoyevsky -
No, it's not a typo!
I don't get how anyone can see blue and black
I see it blue and black right now.
I have not seen Black or anything near it. White or blue depends on whether its shade making it look blue or sunlight making it look white. But yeah, never had any sort of shift In color ever. 20/10 vision yall.
I would say that ethically you are still supposed to act as if you have unilateral responsibility; but simultaneously you have to be able to see the other as a fully autonomous, free, aware person.
Medicalizing social problems has the additional benefit of rendering society not responsible for those social ills. If it’s a disease, it’s nobody’s fault. Yay empiricism.

When he and his team analyzed the pixels of the stripes, they found that they appeared to be brown, not gold or black. But because people could not tell what material it was made out of, some people’s brains assumed it was shiny and perceived it as gold." http://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/15/sc...ess-color.html
So those of us who saw blue (periwinkle) and brown were closer it seems.
