How good is your vision?

Color Test. Take the test. I'm actually interested to see how well other people score.

My results:
Your score: 11
Gender: Male
Age range: 16-19



I was reading a little bit on a woman with super vision who could see 99 million more colors than the average human. A visual representation of the test she took:

I got 10 and I don't have a background in graphics/design.

Edit: With an old AOC display.

I think I took it before and my score was a lot higher back then, probably around 80 or 90. Now it has fallen to 24, maybe the older I get, the better I see?

But I guess it also has to do with a proper calibrated display, and I do not have the best one and probably looked at it a bot funny and could have gotten a 21 instead of 24.

Now that you mention it, my score could've been flawed since I have f.lux installed. That, and my screen isn't the best of laptop displays. This thing has such distorted color compared to any desktop screen that its ridiculous.

I got a zero - really. I took the test using a 24 in ACD. I do wonder what the distribution curve looks like for this metric.

So close...I need glasses. Interesting that the ones I missed are all right in the same range.

Thumb resize.

I got a 4 in that exact range.

It makes sense if a person has fewer green-sensitive cones in their retina the issues would all fall in the same range.

I got 4 on a Retina MBP, the 4 I got incorrect were also contiguous but slightly lower in the yellow/green range

I scored a zero, which seems to be good.

Male, 50-59.

I'm using an older 23" ACD that has been calibrated (though I will admit it's been too long since it's been recalibrated.... a job for today, I suppose).

Cool test... thanks for passing that on.

I've been in the printing industry for about 25 years, I had to take this test, and pass it to be a color technician on press. The test I took had little plastic colored pucks, that I had to put in order. All I knew was that I passed it, never gave much thought as to how I scored on it, until now. I just took the Xrite test now, and got a perfect 0.

Got 16, and the my errors were pretty consistent (which can partly be blamed on my slightly off display).

Problem area seems to be the teal green area, though I'm pretty sure it's just my monitor, viewing the colour bar on the summary page on another monitor seems to be better in that area but worse in others.

I got an 8. I got a 4 the last time I took this test a few years ago though. Looks like my eyes are getting worse!

24. It took me a awhile and I kind of gave up after awhile as well. I'm doing this at work during lunch on an old Dell display. Will try it at home on my iMac at some point to see how if it is easier.

I got a 75. I'd like to blame my mb pro but I have a feeling it's the acid I accidentally shoot in my eye 3 years ago is what did the trick. I can however see perfectly (20 / 15 vision) maybe not colors anymore.

Gonna interrupt an old thread here, but I just caught this and thought it was pretty interesting. I always thought tetrachromatic people were only genetically theoretical. Like it could happen, but the closest anyone has come to finding anyone who were some women who potentially might be, but they had yet to verify it.

It's not like they'd be easy to find, since they'd assume everyone sees colors they way they do. About the only clue you'd get is maybe a kid griping they don't have sphangagish off-violet yellow-mlorng in the big box of crayons. I mean come on, that color's everywhere. How could Crayola forget it?
