Take The Test: How Well Do You See Color?

I was on Facebook the other day and saw this test. I thought it would be fun to put it out there for you to see.
'It is generally believed that around 1 out of 255 women and 1 out of 12 men may have some degree of color blindness. When you consider the importance color plays in the products we buy, our aesthetic tastes, and the design decisions we make when we decorate, it's quite intriguing to consider that many of us may not perceive colors in the same way.
X-Rite, a company that specializes in the technology and science of color (and who also owns the popular color system Pantone) offers a really interesting tool to test your "color IQ" online.'
I would love to know what everyone got. My score was 16 which surprised me. I figured it would be alot higher.

I got a 7 on the test. I was surprised that I did so well when I read that men and older folks have more trouble discriminating values.

Whoa - I got a 4 and a migraine starting up. ;D I ***really*** need to go get new lenses for my glasses. This was fun. I wonder, though, how much it might be affected for some people by their monitor's variations.

I got a 62 on my laptop then I took it on my son's new computer with the big pretty screen and got a 4. :D

What I learn from that is that my computer is junk.

I got a 31.....woohoo! lol

I remember taking this test many months ago, with my old monitor, and got a 79! Yikes!

I've always known I was a bit blue/green colorblind (so is my dad), so I think I did better than I thought I would! :o) (I NEVER see those numbers-in-the-dots tests! Just looks like a bunch of dots to me! lol)

Thanks for posting this! It was fun!

So it is pretty evident I am better at getting color help from others as I scored at 45. Wow!

So, I scored 31 which is not that wonderful. I'll try again next month when I get new glasses.

Thanks for posting this. What fun! I got an 8 which is surprising because it's late at night and my eyes are tired and I'm old and I wear glasses.... (Can you tell I wanted to get a 0?! Ha ha!)
