I learned about this when I was taking cognitive psychology my freshman year. It's weird to think that if nobody ever told you or you never tested your peripheral vision with colored markers, you'd probably die without knowing that you don't have much color vision outside of the center of where you look. It's just that the brain is that good at taking in the information it has and filling in the gaps with some guesswork so that our conscious self doesn't notice.
