Colour Argument

Me and my friends were once in class, working out a problem when we saw the colour of the paper, when we were talking about what colour the sheet of paper was. I SAID IT WAS” YELLOW” when my FRIEND SAID IT WAS ” GREEN”, of course it was yellow,’to my opinion’ but my friends said it was green’ to their opinion’, but, I got their side of view, it was kind of green, but I thought it was more yellow! After a day of fighting, we thought “lets just believe what we think”

  1. I like the way you have used this story, Lucas, to show how different people have different opinions. They see things in a different way. By using colour, which on the face of it seems very clear one way or the other, you have made the point very well. I particularly like where you say ‘but, I got their side of view’.

  2. Hello Lucas, it is interesting how people see things differently, isn’t it? I think it was good that you showed that even though you were sure about your view you were prepared to understand the other person’s point of view. That was a good message. Well done.

  3. Hello Lucas,

    An argument over the colour of paper… It’s possible there are differences in the way people see colours. Some can recognise many different shades of the one colour while others might see only primary (red, blue, yellow) and secondary (purple, orange, green). The solution of allowing each of you to believe what you think is a good one. Well done.
