Everyone's psychological makeup is immensely diverse when compared with every other person in this world. We have colour blinds and we have "normal" people. With colour blinds, you can be blind to only a certain colour or a colour group (like reds, pinks, etc), which some--although rare--are blind to the whole colour spectrum. When we see all colours, we are all perceived as normal. However, this is not the case. Although we all receive light wavelengths, we all receive them differently, as our eyes collect the light different, thus having a different reaction and perception. We all have differing sensitivity to the cone cells within our retinas that detect light at different rates. So a light red Skittle exposed to much sunlight on a summer day could appear that way to me, but it would appear much differently to you, but still have a red hue.

Very interesting, basically. I learned a lot about this in my psychology classes in the tenth grade. I find it rather fascinating how it all is broken down in text and makes total sense when we think about it. Even though I may have made no sense in my ramblings from above, I still think, no matter how different our eyes react to light sensitivities, we still see the close-enough colour. I am not going to see that Skittle as red while you see it as blue. Besides, if there was a blue Skittle, I'd be scared.

People, whichever strategy you choose, make sure to also open a PayPal dispute as soon as possible. It is very likely that you won't get a reaction from anybody from CL/CM, and the earlier you open the dispute the earlier the waiting-for-the-seller's-response phase expires and PayPal can start acting as the judge. This will not only result in you getting your money back, but it will also signal to PayPal that the seller isn't doing anything to fix the issue, and I'm hoping that they might stop servicing Creative Market's PayPal account temporarily, until they get their shit together. That could prevent other people from having to go through this whole hassle as they wouldn't be able to pay through PayPal for their sponsorship anymore in the first place.
