Screen gradients and "fooling your eyes"

so, i discovered something weird last night...i may be just me, but i thought i'd share.

i have a slight screen gradient on my Oasis 1 where it is a faint yellow on the thin side of the reader. to me, it is very noticeable when i read from that thin side to the thick side (holding the kindle in my right hand). however, if i flips the kindle around and read from the white (thick side) to the yellow (thin side), the gradient is really difficult to pick up.

my mind may be playing tricks on me (it likely is) but my wife agreed too that the gradient is nonexistent or really hard to pick up in the latter case.

anyway, i toss this out there as something for you guys to try if you are struggling to accept a slight color shift on your Oasis.

one guess i have is because i choose left justified text (ragged right edge), the mind handles the transition at the end of the line more readily since the yellow occupies "less" of the text.

anyone have a similar observation or am i bonkers?

Actually that makes a bit of sense.
Now are you bonkers? I don't know. You might want to ask your wife.

Actually for me it's vice versa. I notice the gradient more when reading from the whiter side to the yellower. But then I read fully justified text, always.

I'd guess everyone is bonkers in their own special way...
