This is a pretty silly test since one's perception of colour and colour differences vary, depending on the colours they are placed next to. This is a well know fact of colour perception, a fact exploited by Van Gogh when he was painting his sunflower pictures. He was finally able to get the intense yellow he sought by making the background colour a pale greeny-blue (other paintings have yellow backgrounds). This is known from correspondence of Van Gogh with others, notably his brother Theo. Most good books on photography refer to this effect.See also this and related links:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_constancyI am sure that everyone found as I did, that once the similar colours are placed adjacent to each other that it became much more difficult to tell the difference between them - a demonstration of the effect that adjacent colours have on each other.Folks. The test is hokum. Your scores highly unreliable. The good news is that your eyesight and visual perception are just fine. Rest easy and enjoy a happy, and colourful, Christmas !
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 !
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
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!
