How can you tell if someone is "faking" color blindness? What would be some clues to look for?

Update:

He is an adult who calls all pinks "red", all purples "blue", all browns "black", etc. yet he has never failed a color-blind test at the eye doctor.

    On the serious side, there's many different types of color blindness, so someone affected may pass one test and not another. Here's the real scoop.

    What would someone gain out of faking color blindness? You can't tell by just looking at someones eyes.

    Sounds pretty classic red green color blind to me. There are tests where a person with normal color vision would see one letter and a person with red/green color deficiant vision would see another number.

    Being color blind sucks...I doubt anyone would fake it.

    My science teacher once told me that color blind people mistake blue's for green's and other close colors.

    I doubt anyone would fake it. Most people don't relise they have it until they have been tested. Also depends what he (it's mostly males) is. Blue/blue, or reg/green which is the commonest.

    If you are Paris Hilton and get mistaken for Tyra Banks, it would be pretty surely a fake.
