I got 32 on my first try. The lower the score, the better.

31... although the results are also a function of your monitor's capabilities.

One quick try. The result: 4. Obviously my monitor has some problems with red/brown hue, due to my perfect color vision :D .

That'll be my excuse as well. On my second go around I go it down to 24. Someone else in the office got 4. I wonder if there is any male/female difference in colour perception.

33, a second try would be inaccurate.

"There is much beauty that we fail to see through our own eyes teeming with life forms that give us that perception of our reality.  Leaves on the trees blowing gently in the wind, or scarily, the waves pounding through high surf, or lightly on a warm summer’s day; that opportunity to sit or swim in the water on a white beach.   That comfort to shout, “The universal conscious do you hear me?  I am alive, guide me dear logos towards the path of rightnesses.”  Earned what has been kept, no longer to be absorbed into a life filled with cold damn winds and  that stubborn fog clouding  my vision with nothing but darkness."

I got a 37 on my first try... but after calibrating my LCD and trying again, my score went down to 23!
I'm not sure if the lower score is a result of a better calibrated monitor, or just the fact that it was my 2nd try...

Interesting test though!

I received a 7, although I am not sure that this is a good visual quality to make use of since I am assuming that most map readers cannot discern between slight hue differences. So what may be a slight difference to me, will have no discernable difference to most others, thereby potentially creating confusion on the map reader's part. What I think is more valuable is the ability to incorporate and present completely different hues in an aesthetic and meaningful way.

Fun test though!

My first and only try came up with an 11, although I think my eyes are still cross from staring at the screen too intently. I noticed I had to keep backing away from the monitor and look at it from various distances before I felt comfortable with my choices.

15... it helps if you unfocus with your eyes and blur your vision ... that way the colors blend together and you can really see where the colors are out of order. i think i need to calibrate my monitor though. hehe

No problem with the reds and yellows. Most of my errors were in the blue/purple range and a few in the greens.

15 on first try. I guess those years in the press room and negotiating between the press foreman and the customers during press checks still has some residual effects.

I got 11 - a number of which Nigel Tufnel and I are quite fond. However, I must admit that I took this test once before months ago - and knew to arrange the tiles - then give your eyes a break for a bit before scoring.

I managed a 7 when I completed the test. I agree that when you take your focus away from just one square the rest start to fall into place.

Cheers
