    I got a 1, but now my eyeballs feel like they’re crossing. But that was fun!

    I’m 27 year old female and I got 0. The first time I took it I got 3, so I think it’s partially a game of patience. 🙂

    I had to take this test to get my job, and I had a perfect score. However, it must be noted that this test is NEVER given on a computer. A backlit screen, questionable room lighting and all sorts of other factors come into play. It is properly given in what’s called a colour room or light box where there is a table designed for this lit with full spectrum lighting. The colour tabs are moveable and must be lined up in order in their tray.

    As others have mentioned, this is easier for a person who has colour training (i.e. interior design work, colour printing work), and to a certain extent it can be taught/practised. Women are typically better than men, and younger people are generally better than older people. All that said, however, a 50+ man who has worked as a colour specialist most of his life will almost certainly beat or equal the score of a 20 year old woman with perfect colour vision; the practice matters that much.

    Regardless, as I mentioned in another thread, colour sensitivity has nothing to do with colour preference. Many people with perfect colour vision have a distinct preference for warm stones, and many people who can discern no difference buy a higher colour because they are told it is better by a jeweler.

    29, female – score 13. I have to say though, won’t our comp screens display these colours differently?

    l got “perfect color acquity”,  I forget my numerical score.


    This reminds me of a course I took in design school–ColorTheory.  We spent a week on these color blocks and you couldn’t pass you didn’t have  PCA.

    I got an 11 which I am perfectly happy with because I have some weird issues distinguishing greens/blues

    @Someday_Mrs_Maguire:  I’ve done this before and didn’t feel like doing it again, but I went back and found my old post and I got a 0. 🙂

    I was surprised.  I guess I’m color sensitive!
