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.

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 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! :p

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! :p 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!

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).
