Color Test
« on: September 15, 2008, 06:39:49 AM »
Here's a really fun site that tests your ability to see colors.  Perfect score is a zero.  I got a zero!  :o  :D  I am pretty amazed.

Hue Test 


To me, it just looked like the next tile I needed would almost jump up and glow.  Strange.

I got a 25 but I did this in kind of a hurry, so I'll take that!

I got a 40 :(   And it looked pretty good to me...   Maybe I'll blame it on my monitor  :P

Well, I certainly wished the tiles jumped up at me!  So this must indicate why I have a harder time matching items and someone else doesn't?  Does this come easily to you, Liana?

I was glad to see that they at least indicated which color group I had errors with. My guess is on another day I might make different choices - or be more patient to check things better.

HA! 4!

This is amusing to me because I work with people who went to art school decades ago, and since I didn't, they don't "trust" me to "see" colors. I KNEW I was better than most!

1st time--11  Not satisfied after reading all the other scores.

Retook test--12, Worse, score gravitating toward the mean, determined now

Retook--Score 0 yea!!!

I knew if I took my time and really tried, I could do it, cause color is my thing.

I got a 7.
I know my monitor poorly represents color. Sometimes I am shocked - shocked! - when I compare the Pantone color given on a fabric retailer website to my Pantone color booklet. Sometimes they aren't even close.

It was really interesting, though. Thanks, Liana!

I got a zero which I'm somewhat suprised with. I used to be very good with colour matching but I would have thought eyesight problems would have dampened that.

I'm happy to report that a retake resulted in a zero.   :) :)

I use a laptop and generally have it a couple of feet away from me, it's on my sewing desk and I sit here and sew, with a cutting mat in front of the machine...point being it's a) not close to me and b) the light I have on the desk sometimes makes the screen harder to see.   So for the retake I moved the laptop closer to me and turned out the light on the desk.   

Anyway, I'll sleep tonight, I dd it :)

I got it on the first try.
Well, I passed the "perfect color" test first try.
However, I swear I tried to load the test 20 times and all I got was a black screen on my computer.
Finally, I just got the color blocks to pop up, and was able to take the test. Fun!

That was fun! I only did it once, and I got an almost perfect score.  I sent the link to my mom- she'll enjoy it too.  Thanks!

I got a 43  :(  I guess that's why I'm an electrical engineer - I deal with numbers, not colors.  It also explains why I let my husband pick my thread for me ;D

Would 41 make you happy?  My eyes went all wonky on me while I was doing it.  It almost made me sea sick! (Then I started cursing Liana under my breath.  >:D) I also did not have my glasses on.  Is that an excuse?  I didn't think it would matter for color.  I'm going to try it again after a glass of wine, (not right now - it's the middle of the afternoon for heaven's sake!) and then after scotch (not right after the wine- another time) and see how my color choices function the best.

So maybe now we should see who can get the highest largest score!  ;)


edited to clarify.   I just thought we might need to increase the challenge.

I can't imagine why my two scores were so different, except the lighting and me having the screen closer to my eyes the second time around.  I do OK for reading at a distance of about 2 feet, but obviously not details.

I was chuckling about this yesterday choosing DMC floss for a new cross stitch project.   Some of those colors are pretty close to each other :)

Well, I've done it four times over the last couple of days and I got a 9, a 17, a 22 and an 11.

And an eyestrain headache! LOL

I wonder how the scores are computed.  There must be some factor of how far off the correct tile is; there are only 80 tiles, so it's not one point per misplaced tile.

Just for grins, I scored the unaltered beginning spectrum and it scored 1025.

Fun.

Boy are my cones and rods sweating!

I got a 19 on the first try, then adjusted my monitor settings a bit and got a 0.
I changed the gamma setting a bit which darkened the screen and it seemed to help.

That was a lot of fun Liana, thanks.

Wow, this is really fun. Since this is an older thread, I thought I'd bumb it up again. I got an 11 on the first try. What was the most interesting for me was the scoring part where you see where you had errors...

I did it without my glasses and got a 7.  I thought that was pretty good.  I have my monitor dimmed on purpose as well.  I knew some of the tiles weren't quite right, but changing them around didn't seem quite right either. 

I did like the fact that we were shown the general area where our mistakes were.  I wasn't surprised.  Not my best color areas anyway.  I'm not going to retake.  My eyes ache now.

I got a 7, working fast with my readers on, weakest in the green/blue transition.  My mother was color blind, so I'm a carrier but have tested with normal color vision.  DH, a biologist, thinks I might actually be a 'mosaic' (some normal cones, some color blind).  Mother was weakest in greens--makes a body wonder.
