Maybe there is some gender bias here... I scored a 0 on my first try. Funny because I work in a newsroom where nothing ever prints like you see it on your screen.

Well, females are less likely to be color blind than males. B)

I got an 18. It was interesting that when I clicked on "how do you compare to others" that it said the low score for my age/gender was 0. So does that mean someone got them all right?

I swear they really looked lined up perfectly! Always knew I was color blind...

Interesting link, it'd be neat to do a black and white grayscale version.

I managed to get a "0" my first try, though it took awhile to complete. I guess those countless hours doing mosaicing and radiometric correction (in B/W) paid off!

Edit: I'm glad I took the test on my MacBook screen, I've found it's color to be excellent, when I look at pictures I've adjusted on my machine on other monitors, they look really screwy, even more so than I'd expect...

Scored a 4, but I just got a new monitor. Curious how I would've done without the fixed chips, though.

Thanks for posting the test,
Travis

I got an 8 so not so bad I guess. I think this is a really cool link. I am going to test my partner because he is always saying I have bad colour perception. Now we will see!

Yay for perfect color vision! Scored a zero, and it took about 5 minutes total I guess. Probably had the toughest time with the third green-purple row, but overall fairly straightforward.
Although I'm a bit perplexed with the lowest men's score... -4??? I'm not quite sure how you score in the negatives....?

I also got a perfect score on the first try. My friend in the color industry says that women typically have better color perception than men. (They periodically take these types of tests to find out where their weak areas are.) Looks like our self-reported results agree with this trend.

I got an 8! Cool test... the monitor makes a big difference.
