Explain the color thing before I cry. I'd rather have color than shape or texture :(
well, to me, being colorblind, colors are ambiguous and frustrating.
shapes, textures, patterns… aren’t
growing up i have tended to associate colors with things being muddled and requiring me to strain to tediously distinguish between shades and guess at what i’m supposed to be perceiving. i can figure it out, eventually, but it’s a drag. Half the time i end up guessing from context; this means, well, shapes. You show me a drawing of a brown or yellow apple and I will think, faster than an eye-blink, “apple, therefore, green or red”; the net effect of coloring the apple is often just to decrease the contrast between it and the background and make it harder to see for me.
there is a crispness and a clarity to shape and texture that, ultimately, makes the whole thing feel a lot more friendly. It tells me “you do not need to do this extra work to guess what I mean here”. It’s nice.
…or at least that’s a story i can tell that seems to explain how i feel. idk.
in any case. I’m sorry i possibly almost made you cry; i was just being overdramatic because i was getting annoyed at being asked what my favorite color is.
