Turn ON/OFF Dynamic Color Sliders in Photoshop

By default Dynamic Color Sliders is turned on in Preferences > General. This option control behavior of sliders when you work with color in COLORS palette. Dragging any of sliders will cause color to change similar as in Color Picker dialog when choosing color from Color Slider which is in the middle of dialog.

If you prefer to have sliders for base colors  (R,G,B or C,M,Y,K or L,a,b) displayed, so you can mix colors in for my money more natural way turn Dynamic Color Sliders off.
