So for those that are on team blue/black, I guess all these facts were instantly perceived?

Yes. So that means blue/black people have more keen perception?

I wonder if you could separate the two groups by IQ

Here's a more elaborate explanation... So I would say it probably has little to do with IQ.

Probably because there isn't much else in the picture, just a washed out background with a touch of red.

What I want to know is what visual cues did the people that saw "blue/black" use to determine the dress was blue and black?
The background has a yellow cast or tint to it, which made me think (well my brain automatically perceive) it was taken indoors in artificial warm lighting.

Exactly. People keep saying that there is no context, but there is context. 1/6th of the picture provides plenty of context.
