Impossible colors or forbidden colors are hues that cannot be perceived by ordinary viewing conditions from light that is a combination of various intensities of the various frequencies of visible light.

Impossible colors

Examples of impossible colors are bluish-yellow and reddish-green.[1] This does not mean the muddy brown color created when mixing red and green pigments (such as paints), or the green color from mixing yellow and blue pigments, but rather colors that appear to be similar to, for example, both red and green, or both yellow and blue. Other colors never experienced by ordinary viewing, but perceivable under special artificial laboratory conditions, would also be termed impossible colors.

The purpose of ego defence mechanisms is to protect the mind/self/ego from anxiety and/or social sanctions and/or to provide a refuge from a situation with which one cannot currently cope.[9] One resource used to evaluate these mechanisms is the Defense Style Questionnaire (DSQ-40).[10][11] Structural model: Id, ego, and superego[edit]
