How do colored glasses work in reverse?

When you choose to look at the world through colored glasses it is obvious you get a distorted view. Depending on the glasses such as the infamous rose ones, you see a pleasant place, or a pair with dark dank color you see a cesspool. This much is the easy to understand thing.

But what does the world see when it looks at you through the glasses the other way? For instance in the rose case, does the world see you as rosy, or does it see you as blue and being in denial of the truth? In the case of dark does it see an incredible light, that is just going to waste?

What about a pair colored with religious fervor?


Keep it abstract please, make both me and the mods happy.

What about psychedelic glasses?

From inside or outside they just give me a headache....

The question answers itself, as the terms are applied to another, not one's self.
