Most resistors have values take from a list of "preferred values". A 4-band marking will be from the E24 series, where the "third digit" of the value is always 0. If reading from one end gives a preferred value but from the other end does not, it's a pretty good bet that the preferred value is the correct one.
After a while you get to recognize the color combinations of the preferred values (e.g. yellow-violet = 47) without having the decode the digits one by one.
When I see an E12 resistor, like an old friend, I instinctively “feel” the resistance value without reading the colour bands.
“gold,blk,org,org” just feels like 33R 5%. There is no need to turn it around to recognise it.
The problem I have is with fluorescent artificial lighting where red and orange look the same.
33k = 2k2 often look the same.
