I was hard, I think for most of the colours I was guessing. I scored and 11, but on the chart for my age bracket (40-49 male) it's about 80-85% perfect, I was surprised and was without glasses.

Edit, this may also depend on how well you setup your screen?

Thanks for the link.

Great test. I scored a 4. I guess that is pretty good. Maybe I should stop shooting in b & w?
P.S. Second time around I gots a 0! Still feel like a man though.

I don't think I did too bad. I scored a 3. I had a slight problem with the very close aqua greens it looks like, but otherwise I seemed to do okay.

I bet if you took those glasses off you would do a bit better. The first time I took it my problems were in the blue-green as well.

I am going to send this to some of the people that I work with. I will be interested to find out how they do if they will tell me. I am an architect. I work with people that fancy themselves as superb designers and connoiseurs of good taste. I am positioned as someone that works out the problems with their cacamaimee ideas. I have to pick and choose my battles with their aesthetic decisions carefully. Many times it is their egos that define the outcome.

Edit: One of my co-workers just emailed me. She got a 58. Of course she has one of the biggest egos that I have come across in quite a while.

My Uncle (Sam) already informed me 40+ years ago that I am partially color blind and our fashion conscious daughter confirms it.

Wow. I got a 0. I was surprised as it was late at night & I was kinda tired & squinting by then...
You should get a free X-rite product for a perfect score

It might, somewhat: I got an 18, (which is surprisingly not apparently that bad for gals 40-49: obviously not flying colors. ) but I noticed it was a lot clearer when I went back and looked with a different brightness setting. ) Ill try again with that when I'm feeling a little better, without the slight sun-dazzled migraineyness, just to be scientific.



(Edit: Yeah, I tried again just now, got a 4. (Also in the bluish fringe of greens, actually: four low bars right together: previous results were kind of a bunch of little errors all over. ) Screen settings do seem to matter. But this actually squares more with experience.

Got a 25. I'm exhausted, eyes are tired, too, so I'll try it again tomorrow and compare. It has me wondering if my screen needs tweaking though (which, I'm sure it's designed to).

Interesting test, thanks for posting it.

I don't feel so bad now, after reading the others scores in lower number, I got a 28. But it doesn't help when lighting isn't good, and this LCD monitor isn't calibrated either.

I emailed this test to some family members and a few friends. Thanks for posting it Alliecat.

I have four LCD screens in front of me, all are different brands (well, two are Dell, different models and one's a laptop screen insane pixel density). They all display colour differently. The one I have centered is the most "normal" looking, to my eyes, with a slightly cooler one to the left, a slightly warmer one to the right. It's handy for estimating how other users might see a site I'm working on, or a picture I take.

Still, the test should display consistently on any screen. The actual colours we see might be slightly different, but the amount of difference between each tile would be the same. I guess we'd only do better or worse on uncalibrated screens if the character of the screen pushed the selected colour ranges into hues we're not quite as sensitive to.
