    How good is your color vision?

    Color photography is an attempt to simulate what we remember or more accurately what we would like to see in reproductions of a scene. We try to describe what we see and compare to the observations of others. However, we don't really know how our perceptions compare to the norm or other individuals. This test allows the test-subject to see how he/she compares to an "average" observer. This will give you an idea if your perception approximates the average observer. Granted the computer display will not be as accurate as a printed test but is readily available and easy to complete.

    I remember someone having dramatic arguments with his mother about what clothes should be worn together. It wasn't until he visited the Air Force Recruiting Office that he discovered he was severely color-blind.

    Got 10 out of 10, easy enough for me. It'd better be. I work as a color corrector in a large photo lab.

    Perfect score for me. Your eyes get kinda screwy after looking at all those squares for so long...

    I found that a properly calibrated monitor helps too!

    That one is an interesting one, knew about it for long but never got around to do it. I've just done it. Scored 23.
    I've got an Uncalibrated laptop screen at maxiumum brightness plus some summer laziness and I guess it doesn't quite help.

    This one exists as little plastic tubs as well. They're a little easier to see as a row, but each has a black border, too. I sorta suspect that the type of computer screen and the range it can render may skew the results a bit on the web version. I still did ok, but not perfect (I got just one wrong in the real life one and 7 in the web one) - the green/blue section is where I wasn't great.

    Some forensic labs test new hires with this one, btw.
