    I'm Red-Green color blind. I look at those things and only see about four colors per bar. I scored 191.

    I had a weird flashback to when I was younger, stuck waiting in the makeup aisle with my sister and mom. It paid off though, got a 0.

    Colors are really weird and vivid for me right now. I went partially blind in one eye a few years back and just now got a contact that helps significantly, and I swear, it's like going from black and white to color. It's almost flashback inducing. I couldn't look at that page for more than a few seconds.

    I got a 15, on an ASUS notebook. The screen isn't the best nor is the graphics card, so I may be capable of a slightly lower score. In my mid twenties, male.

    I got perfect.

    which is surprising, because this dell U2311H only has 6bits of colour + dithering.
    The reds were difficult due to poor colour reproduction of reds in general.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I got a 28. I could blame it on just waking up and only one sip of coffee but the truth is I had to ask the clerk at the store the other day what color socks I was buying. Luckily Brooks Brothers has numbered codes for their socks, which helped me find more browns using the tag.

    ...at home I have them separated by color in little drawers, but it's tough for me to return them there after the laundry.

    It gave me a 69. My eyes aren't that great and with my 40th birthday coming up I suppose they have gotten worse. They have been subjected to laser surgery once. Still, I still get 1.0 0.9 corrected vision so colors can be vague if they like.

    I've taken this test 3 times and got a perfect score. It's part of my job running the color management dept of a printing company.

    Ya, I was going to say that the monitors people are using are going to be a crutch or help more than anything. Five different monitors, six different results!

    I got a 0. I guess that means I'm ok to continue choosing colors for people's buildings.

    I lost it on just the first row. No way could I concentrate on that long enough to get a real score. If you need to enter something for me, write down "potato"

    I got a perfect score. Toward the end I had to look away from the screen a few times and close my eyes to give them a break.
