In brief: Color mistakes

Color blindness (we call it deficiency) causes failure to distinguish colors along certain patterns of confusion.
So a red-green deficient person cannot make that distinction between objects of those shades. From a practical standpoint, color deficiency is a bar to certain occupations such as fruit grader, electronics assembly, some law enforcement jobs, certain types of painting, etc.
