Describe Color Red by mylastel Describe Color Red by mylastel
It's an interview question from a call center company (A kind of question that measures an applicant if he/she has the ability to describe a certain product to a customer through phone. Testing also your convincing power.. they say. :P)

One night, I was pretending asleep when my aunt and her friend chatting in the room. My aunt was asking for some interview tips because she wants to apply in a call center company. Her friend shared some questions that was asked to her and some of them were really weird, one of them is now on this stamp. I just did not hear the answer so until now, I don't know how to describe a color red (or any color) to a blind person (of course, inborn). Hmm, I can't say it's like blood cuz they've never seen blood yet. :lol:
How 'bout you, guys? Well, if any of you has a brilliant answer to share, pls don't hesitate to leave a comment. =D I'll be glad to read them. Haha!

My brother saw this stamp and said "I would describe it exactly like this..."It's a color you can't see""

And I smacked him for it

describe it like emotions in a story.
It's the color that sparks your emotions and keep you going. It's the heat that comes across your face when your by your crush. It's the same the same thing that keeps your heart thumping through pain. Courage, commitment and the smell of burnt food. Love, pain and jealously. That is red.

How to describe red:

The colour you feel when have complete anger or intense passion.
The colour you could associate with pain or love.
The feeling you get when you have too much pepper.
The colour that is like the warmth of fire.

When describing colours to a blind person, you must always add emotions and sense to make it seem more like something. :) Glad if I helped

Think of Red as a comforting color when you're sad.
It's like a friend to you.
It's so sad and lonely but it understands your feeling. ^^

If I close my eyes and imagine red, I think of the feeling of grabbing something too hot, holding someone who you really care for close to you, and the kind of anger that makes you want to hit things. Lots of contrasts, though all seemingly wild feelings of pain, love, or rage.

Red is... Heat, Passion.
Yellow is happiness, a smile.
Green is the smell of freshly cut grass.
Blue is being calm, or the smell of salt at the beach.

I just got inspired a bit... Hmm...

Red is the heat of your face when you get embarrassed.
Red is the uplift of your lips when you're happy.
Red is the burn of the fire that warms you.
Red is the cut of the skin that pains you.
Red is the taste of an apple that nourishes you.
Red is the anger that fuels hatred.

I don't know, I used other senses to think about what red is like.

I'd talk about anger and heat like evryone else. But then I'd also try embarrassment maybe. Like, when you feel embarrassed, you say you're 'going red', so maybe that would help ^^;

I imagine if they've always been blind, you'd just describe it through emotion and feeling. Red for instance would feel hot and give you the impression of anger. Blue would feel cool, and give you the feeling of calmness or even sorrow.

That's all I can see to describe it D:

I once discussed with a one blind man and he didn't had any problems with colors. Many people thought that it was a strange thing that he knew all the colors but then that blind man told that he was able to see when he was a child. Then he got a disease that made him blind. Many people often think that every blind or deaf person is born like that.

But I don't know how to describe colours to someone that has always been blind. Someone once said that the blind people don't see black (that black that you see when you close your eyes) but I don't know is it true. Some people that have had an eye injury have said that they 'see black' when they don't see anything.

I would say that colors are not something you can physically feel, and that colors may tend to give emotions off.
I would say that the red represent, the blood, the danger, the heats...

It remind me a trollcomic I saw once:

Yeah, go tell so to a born deaf, and see how he will look at you. <.<

Not to sound like a grammar nazi, but don't you mean 'How are you going to describe the color red to a person'? You used the word 'will', rather than 'are'.

You don't have to fix this, if you don't want to. I just thought I would let you know.

Sorry if I sound rude, as I'm not trying to be. ^^;

The sound of a trumpet is often described as red by people with synesthesia. =)
