HUZZAH!!
Got zero-
Now if I could just see a crow on the top of my barn, that would be something.
I'm sure I could benefit from a 12 bit monitor.

Struggle with the test?


No.  Started it and quickly realised it was a waste of time.  Fun, in a kind of masochistic sort of way, though !

This has been on a few forums. It is obviously doing the rounds. The hue wheel is a joined up graph that has all the hues in the correct order so there isn't a need to differentiate them in the real world?

It's rather amusing that the "color pattern" I discern from this test is that those who did well like the test and those who did poorly think it's crap. LOL

I thought it was a novel test, but I agree that it will measure the performance of your hardware as much as your eyes and brain.  

Differentiating gradations of like colors isn't incredibly relevant to what we do.  Recognizing when gradients aren't smooth is far easier and more common. I also think that having a good eye for the color cast of an image is as important as discerning gradations in one color.  Seeing an image that looks off  and knowing what colors to tweak is the real talent that most of us try to cultivate.  I can see graphic designers needing close color discrimination more than photographers.

second try, actually turning the lights off and taking more than five minutes, I got a 3.

I did the worst of anybody here so far and I like the test. It just verifies what I'v known for many years from amny other tests (Ishihara being the first): I have faulty red-green vision and no amount of monitor calibration is going to fix that.


Now if someone could come up with an effective way of producing a reliable "eye calibration profile", I'd be interested.

Kind of interesting.  I did it very quickly the first time, and scored a 16.  I went back and did it again, this time really paying attention, and I scored a 0.  So I guess that means I'm capable of seeing the relationship between the colors correctly if I make an effort?

Now when I close my eyes I see little colored squares...

Wow, I'm kind of disappointed with my score of 20.

Tried it again and got a 4.

Tried it last night, took my time, about 15 minutes, on a standard but calibrated ViewSonic VX910. I am 70 years old, wear slightly tinted glasses and got a zero (0). I wonder if equipment matters, mine or the computer's!

62, score 0.  Took my time too last week on a reasonably calibrated Samsung 205BW used for the web only. Then thought it would be easier on a wide gamut NEC 2690 ........... it is easier so that is a flaw in the test.

On my calibrated laptop in a bright room, I got a 37 ... on my calibrated wide gamut LED-back LCD, I got a 0.

I tried equally hard to get it right each time.

25 male with a red-green deficiency (protanomaly) , scored 74.

Took me about 10 minutes and was a nightmare.

If you are interested in color blindness, I recommend this site : http://www.colblindor.com/. Has a lot of information on color blindness, also includes a color blindness simulator for any image you upload, so people with normal color vision can finally see through eyes like mine (not sure it's that accurate, but it's a start).

Male, 40 and a score of...0

I guess when you have such a score you find this test very good....  

Old NEC Diamondtron calibrated monitor.

Now if someone could come up with an effective way of producing a reliable "eye calibration profile", I'd be interested. 

This test appears to be similar in a way to audio tests in which a person can compare and try to reproduce a specific series of tones. The goal of the test is to see if one has “perfect pitch,” or how close to “perfect pitch” one has.

Here we see that, in a similar way, not everyone sees color hues as they exist. Of course there are a number of possible reasons for this. The accuracy of the monitor, if the monitor is color calibrated, if the background lighting in the room are too bright or impart a color, the mood of the person taking the test and any number of other external influences. But the long and short is that many don’t have quite the ability to discern hues as they might want to have.

This phenomena raises some interesting philosophical questions, but they are perhaps best left for other forums….
