@ykgoon I think the question represents best effort approximation whose answer correlates with the real question of what's your favorite experience of visual stimulus for which we have no words.
@octesian only if it's asked by people like you.
I've never heard it asked outside the context of small talk.
@ykgoon I suppose. What I was getting at is that even though there are multiple combinations of light frequencies that register as the same color, there’s still some agreement what those color perceptions are and people have strong preferences nonetheless.
@ykgoon there’s no big picture rationale, but it always makes a difference to the psyche. When we form our preferences as children, they’re completely arbitrary yet (at least with my children) very strongly held. Then for the rest of your life it makes a clear emotional difference to the psyche even if no practical difference exists. Or the opposite too. I have strong aversions to certain colors. I “rationally” avoid them because I don’t want to feel bad.
