    That's pretty neat!

    I scored 14.

    Apparently that's pretty good (I think). I have this one co-worker who literally thinks I'm color blind because I have these two shirts, one gray/blue and one gray/green, that she thinks are both just gray.

    I'm going to show this to her and say, "In yo' face!"

    Edit: people who get over ~1K do on purpose, you'd have to try to get a score in the 1500's

    hehe wonder if there's a "Barney Purple" in the mix of the BIG CRAYOLA box of crayons - complete with CRAYOLA sharpener!!!

    At one time I would have traded my bestest toys, no - my little brother - for the big buttress of crayons that had over 100 colors PLUS SHARPENER!!

    <making a bit of Tim the Tool Guy Noise here ....>


    ugh.

    and grrr


    I do have my own set of crayons - that are nested VERY NICELY THANK YOU with my other drawing implements in the boxes I just got out of storage.

    I remember doing this one in real life once, and it ended my chances of becoming a commercial airline pilot. Ah, well.

    Edit: 87. Yup, no flying for me. Although I did get kind of annoyed by the end and just wanted to finish it...

    Ok, here's a question for all you low scorers. When you see the whole spectrum (as in Hobartlemagne's post above), does it look like a smooth range of colours, or are their noticeable bars of varying widths here and there? I'm seeing bars.

    I see equal size squares but they are a smooth transition from one color to the next. Oh wait. I mean on the squares I moved around. I don't remember what the final one looked like.

    4 for me...

    Accurate color discrimination can be a blessing and a curse. When I have a run of 500 t-shirts made, I can see the color variations in the ink and fabric color a little too well and it gets me all pissed off. Hah.

    I can also tell a little too easily that I painted my living room Tequila and my dining room Raffia Beige, even though I know I only did it to compensate for the difference in lighting between the two rooms.

    ugh..

    Weird. For instance, in the green square, it looks to me like there's a slightly lighter section just to the left of half-way across. It's the width of one of those bars measuring your colour discrimination ability.

    I should have taken a screen shot of the way I had arranged the colours to compare.

    Anyway, I think the test is saying I don't discriminate based on colour - I guess I can be proud of that

    The picture in my post probably doesnt look smooth since i copied the window image, pasted in
    MS paint and converted it to a jpeg, which caused some loss of picture quality.
