    Default Orange/Green confusion

    I thought that I was the person that did this, but tonight I asked my brother if he ever got the colors orange and green mixed up. He immediately said "All the time!" Its not that I'm colorblind, its just that I mix the name of these colors up most of the time. So now, I have to ask, does anybody else mix up the names of these colors and why. Is it some genetic disorder or something?

    No. I don't think I've ever heard of anyone confusing green and orange.

    I confuse green and yellow sometimes (rarely) but never orange.

    EDIT: Oh, the names? No never.

    Did you look at the post? From what I understand, he's not mixing up what they look like, he's mixing up what they're called. Sounds unlike anything I know of...

    Sorry. I'm pretty sure I paused for a second to make sure I was using the correct version of the word. Only to do it wrong anyway.

    So much for thinking too hard.

    That's ridiculous! They're colors. They can't be confused, they're just the energy level of EM radiation.

    you'd have to be realy sneaky to confuse them; more razzle-dazzle than I've ever seen.

    Never got this, orange is a rather ugly colour while most shades of green are beautiful.
    However I have something similar with numbers, I sometimes call 5 7 and 7 5 when reading a piece of text with these numbers in. I know what the number actualy is I just say the wrong name occasionly

    Orange and Green are easily confused. This is why they should always be separated by White :nods:

    I used to confuse Spain and France all the time when I was a little kid. But I've never confused Green and Orange.

    Not orange and green but as a kid I often messed up gray and brown.

    Just because it's slightly on topic, I also mixed up "me" and "You" which became very distressing for the little baby Soniku when I explained very carefully to my grandmother that it was in fact I who wanted to eat that tasty lolly.

    So you can visually tell the difference between the colours, but you don't say the correct name? Sounds like some kind of mild dyslexia.

    My thoughts exactly. I get my mild dyslexia from my dad, left and right, ketchup and mustard, Yellow and Orange on occasion, they just get blurry and everything gets all backwards, I can't help it...

    I don't do it with colours, but I do it with other things... Onions and Mushrooms are nothing alike, they taste completely different, have different shapes and are spelled completely differently, but the number of times that I have called onions mushrooms and visa versa is astonishnig, especially as half the time, I don't know if I have got it right.

    The following rules are integral to any roleplaying game:
    Rule 0: The Gamesmaster is always right.
    Rule 7: Do not take the piss.

    Well, it looks like at least one other person does this. Anyways, yeah, its odd how it happens. I know they dont look anything alike, but for some reason something about them makes me mix the names up. I dont do it with anything else, just these two very unsimilar colors.
