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.

Yea!! -- "You have perfect color vision!" Looks like I'm kind of badazz!

I took about 4 minutes to do them all. Pretty surprised they were all in the right order because I was kind of just going quickly through the test. I guess my graphic design background kicked in.

I was pretty happy that I got a prefect score, until I saw that half of the other people in this thread got perfect scores

Age range 30-39

Having said that, I've always known that I have good eyesight. I can read signs etc from really far away. I didn't realise that my colour perception was good though. I wonder how accurate this test is.

Got a zero. Surprised actually, took me forever to decide over a couple of them.

You should still happy about it. Perhaps only a few took the test... perhaps the ones that took it, didn't bother to say when they found that they didn't do very well.

True, well at least I can be happy about one of my senses! I would dread to test my hearing. I suspect that I did a lot of damage to it in my youth by listening to loud music through headphones. Always was at maximum volume. Always used earbud style headphones. Doh!

Or at least I did. After taking that test, it seems I now have a permanent dark splotch floating in front of my eyes.

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).
