n recent study by Ohio State University (USA) reveals that humans perceive colors remain the same regardless of the place and the culture in which we are immersed, and that even named and classified similarly. Specifically, in all cultures analyzed, researchers have observed a tendency to classify hundreds of different color shades in just eight categories: red, green, yellow or orange, blue, purple, brown, pink and teal. So, have demonstrated that among languages like English, Zapotec or Abidji, perception, and the names of the colors are very similar. "While culture can influence the name we give to a color within our brain see the world very similarly," said Delwin Lindsey, author of the paper.
However, there are exceptions where the colors are classified into only two categories. But even then keep one thing in common: all cultures grouped the colors we call "cold" in a category we call "warm" in another.
The results of the study, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, were extracted from analysis of data collected by the World Colour Survey Project (WCS), a collection of color names in many languages developed over half century contributions currently has 2,616 people and 110 languages, mostly just spoken.
