I like the colour yellow but my brain doesn't. I even have a yellow Hufflepuff shirt.

I remember reading a book in the first grade that had yellow predominantly in it and I got a headache and felt nauseous looking at it.

Yellow/green has bothered my brain for a long time so now I wear blue tinted Irlen lenses in my glasses. They make so much difference. Everything looks like the proper colour it should be but I no longer feel overwhelmed by the environment, especially in shops.

Bright orange offends me so much that I fear it.
Yellow is bothersome unless it's soft like butter.

Yes! I particularly dislike VG's Sunflowers.

My grade-school art teacher was obsessed with Van Gough. Particularly Starry Night. Could do a doctoral thesis on it from her alone. But I never really liked any of his other pictures because of the constant yellow in them. I once heard an art history professor that Van Gough possibly had epilepsy because he was so fond of yellow and people with epilepsy crave bright colors.
