Thanks for your input.
Wellllllllllllllllllll, my own bias is that
it is more FUNCTIONAL when scrolling, particularly more than slow scrolling . . . to have
to WATCH FOR regarding the main thing you are looking for.
That's the way I search and that's the way I believe most folks search.
We look for CUES to signal when we have found or are close to finding what we are looking for.
in THAT regard--looking for CUES is greatly helped by
SPECIFIC COLOR CUES tailored, wedded to specific TYPES of searched-for-objects
The yellow YIELD signs on the highways are a good example, as are the RED !STOP! signs. One only has to see a blur of the respective color to know
what the sign is likely signaling.
Yes, some folks take more time and practice than other folks in getting used to or becoming comfortable with such a wealth of cues.
And, some of us CRAVE THEM, NEED THEM, GREATLY APPRECIATE them. They save us time, struggle, anxiety, hassle, annoyance A LOT. And in this era, any
saving avoiding more annoyance, hassle, anxiety IS MOST WELCOME and at some point . . . life giving, stress relieving.
Yes, I'm aware that some folks react to color as a stress. I have found that MOST such with some practice and an attitude adjustment can learn to
enjoy the color and remove it as a stressor and add it as an aid, even a relaxing cue.
Anyway--that's my 2 cents.
I doubt the thread will be deleted and a totally COMPILATION thread began unless a particular mod wants to bother. Either way is OK by me.
if a mod wants to ask me to post a new thread with strictly the Q&A's without any other commentary and another strictly on the color
discussion, I'd be happy to try and get around to that--they'd just need to ask.
I'm going to try and compile and upload the remainder of Tom Carey's responses shortly.
