People see things differently. That is a fact and in a world filled with colors, we are bound to see them differently from one person to the next. How we perceive a certain shade of blue or red or green depends not only on our eyesight, but our experiences in life as well.
Two particular colors that many people interpret differently are blue and black. While lighter shades of blue, such as cyan, turquoise, and teal, are easily identifiable as belonging to the blue color family, darker shades are not so clearly blue. The deeper and darker the blue, the more likely we are to confuse it with black. If you know what oxford or peacock blue looks like, then you know how blackish they can truly appear to be!
