Check this out: It's a Munsell hue test, and it's pretty tough. I got a 3, but it definitely strained my eyes. My slips were in the pink range, which I think is pretty funny since I am no fan of pink.

This is the first time I ever got a zero on a test that I didn't flunk!

I bookmarked the site because I'm having cataract surgery in a few weeks. I've heard that colors are more vibrant after surgery. Wonder if that'll be an improvement or not??

I got a 7 which I guess is pretty good as my age group went from 0-1432. I'm blaming the monitor. But how do you tell where your problems were? Unless mine were all across the board?

I got 29...I found it tough to tell the difference in the middle ranges. And do I work with color in my business? Yep-I dye yarn for Scarlet Fleece. Maybe that is why I have several vibrant colorways-so I don't have to work with colors with very close contrasts.

48, but I think it's pretty good for being 50, taking the test at midnight, and after having suffered MS-related optic neuritis in each eye, with related vision and color perception loss. Can I blame the floaters as well?

I am determined to think positive! (And to blame it on the light...)

I got a 12.

I kinda expected to suck even worse at this.

Holy crappola- I got a 0! But then I have been dealing with colour my whole life

In colour, one has to talk not only to hue- but intensity and value- and they are indeed, different.

Fun challenge! KL

Did anyone take it twice? I just got a 0 and I can't tell you why. It looked exactly the same of the other one. So much for being able to learn from your mistakes. *shrugs* HA!

I got a 7.

Interesting that my weak area was blue/green!

Now I know why I love to play with dye.


What came out of my dyepot this week? Sock yarn? Laceweight? Silk? Come and see my yarn!

I scored a 7. The blue/green hues were the ones that confounded me. Odd really, besides being a fiber fiend I paint as well. The colour range I favor in my paintings? Blue/green!
Great fun though. Thanks for posting the link.

Best score for my age and gender: 0
Highest score for my age and gender: 1409

I got them all right. I KNEW I could discern minute shifts in color!

That was interesting. I got 118 and have no idea what I did right or wrong.

Your score: 118

I loved doing this. Yellow/greens were the weak ones, and my score was a 4. Thanks for the fun, Lanea :)

I can remember trying this a while ago when it was quite a sunny day. My score wasn't too good that day. When I saw the link here a day or two ago, I tried again. The weather was rather cloudy which meant the colours on my monitor were a lot easier to distinguish. My score? 0! I was rather chuffed!
