How Well Do You See Color?

Hi Everyone,

Yesterday on my Facebook page, this test appeared.  It is to test your ability to see color.  I would compare it to a sophisticated color-blindness test--testing your eyes, not your ability to combine and play with color, however I thought it looked like fun, so I tried it.  You don't need Facebook to do it and it does not require any personal information to be entered.  At the end, it will ask you for an age range and sex, but you do not have to enter it if you don't want to.

In this test, getting a zero is the perfect score!  I took it and got a four.  Then, after I had clicked away, I realized I hadn't noticed what color range was my problem area, so I did it again and got a three.  My problem seemed to be in the greens. 

So when my husband got home last night, I decided to have him try it.  I thought it would be fun to see whatever score he got and then tease him that I got a 3 and no wonder he couldn't pick out clothes that match.

He got a perfect 0!  Yes, I learned my lesson.

If you would like to try it, here is the link.

Have a great day!


  1. Fascinating! Of course I had to try it--and I got a 7! Yikes! It was in the blue/green range that I didn't do well. Maybe I should put my glasses on and try again! : )

  2. That was fun! It was the blue/green range that did me in as well... I got a 9!!! Hmmm... maybe this is why I'm partial to bold, contrasting colors...

  3. That was hard! LOL I don't like tests. I got a 12...blues and greens were my downfall as well.

  4. Margaret from The Average Quilter just posted this, too!

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

    I remember taking this test many months ago, with my old monitor, and got a 79 then! Yikes! I think I'm feeling pretty good with a 31 now! LOL

    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)

  5. I got an 8--I think it was those mauve's that did me in!

  6. I knew I was never good with colors--probably shouldn't be quilting. Got a 55! ACK! Or at best, always buy kits!! LOL Oh well.......

  7. Reading everyone's comments and results, I think I need to give this a try! Thanks for sharing! (Oh, or maybe I should wait till tomorrow morning when my eyes are nice and fresh!!)

  8. Lol at your wish to upstage your husband. I've never taken an IQ test because I don't want to find out if it's lower than my husbands! I know it would've close but I like to think I'm smarter. I've thought about taking the colour test before, but it's never been the right time of day regarding best lighting or on the best screen for me to think it was worth it.
