Share your insights, friends! This is pretty challenging. These kinds of questions are actually being used in some job interviews in the Philippines.

I would say to touch the ocean water and that is blue. Blue is everything the ocean feels like...it is fresh, peaceful, rejuvinating. It looks open and vast like a new beginning. Blue is everywhere you go and in every step you take because if you look above, the sky is blue.

Hello misc11! Dude, nice answer. We have almost the same idea. I really find the color blue peaceful and relaxing. Questions like this really challenges me. :D

A man who has been blind all his life will probably not understand if you say "like an ocean" if he has not been near that place before. So I would describe the color blue by using my sense of touch or taste like blind people do. So I would describe as "when you drink a cold water and it sooths your thirst." or "when somebody caresses your arm and you feel relaxed".

That's usually the question being asked when you apply in a call center company. You can use this answer: "Try to relax and be very calm. When you reach that point when you feel everything seems to be peaceful, that's the color Blue."

wow that's a fun interview question. I would say it's cold, like a breeze on a winter day, or the feeling of swimming in a river.

when seeing your question i really hvae no idea. Maybe you can say that the blue color is one of the three basic colors. And all the colors are made by the three color. Or you can say that the bule color is the color of the ocean and the clear sky.
