All humans with normal vision perceive color the same way. The rods and cones in the eye react the light in the same way. It is not perception that varies, it is interpretation. Our minds process the raw information of color, relate it to other things and store it with those relationships as memories. It's fuzzy and error prone and beautifully human.

The same is true for tone. Our ears all react more or less the same to sound but we interpret it differently based on all sorts of cultural and emotional experiences. Absent that interpretation, it's just noise.

I like ultra clean but robust and full sound with a hint of Reverb. Then I want a little bit of Blues Grunt when I push it. For Chord Solos I want to add a little bit of Chorus. I like just enough treble to make each note well defined and no muddyness.

Dunno. I have absolutely no idea whether you see (ie how our brain interprets it) red the same way as I do, because neither of us can describe it in absolute terms.

Because you have no idea doesn't mean it isn't true however.

Research in perceptual psychology suggests otherwise.

Think Different: How Perception Reveals Brain Differences

The Ponzo illusion is mentioned in the article, but I don't see it; could be a popup blocker or something: http://opl.apa.org/Experiments/About/AboutPonzo.aspx


Westerners and Easterners see the world differently

There's plenty of data that suggest culture has a lot in how we interpret stimuli. It's a chicken/egg kind of thing- did something in the dna of different people create the culture, or did culture arise somehow, that cause perceptual/interpretive differences?
