How well do you see color?
FACT:  1 out of 255 women and 1 out of 12 men have some form of color vision deficiency.
Take the online color challenge, based on the Farnsworth Munsell 100 Hue Test.

BTW, I am a male that has been in his 60's for a few years now, and just scored a "perfect color vision" result.     cheesy

I scored 8, my wife scored 15 (lower scores are better).

Have posted it to facebook to see if anyone else can beat me.  Your perfect score was pretty impressive, but I reckon a lot has to do with the type of monitor you are on, if it is properly calibrated and so on...

To anyone viewing my posts and finding missing/broken links to a website called www.needanother.co.uk, I still own the domain but recently cancelled my server (saving ú30/month) so even though the domain address exists, it points nowhere.  I hope to one day sort something out but for now - sorry!

I am sure a good monitor, which has been calibrated, would make a big difference, but I have never bothered to change anything other than the resolution since I unpacked the one I am currently using.  I have always been very good at spotting minute differences in shape, size, and color (as long as it is not far from my face, since I am near-sighted).     wink

I found that particular web page on a shared-link posting by Pam Blackstone, on her Facebook page.  She had scored a 16, and there was a guy named Jim that scored a 57.  Hal Tenny commented that he had scored a 19.

There are new world monkey spacies (actualy most of them) with females having colour vision and males don't. So females sees better in day, but no colour vision males in night.

I scored 16. There was a lot of troubles with greens. Rest was ok. Maybe that's why most of my images have not so much greenish colors  grin

I went to the page, did nothing but press "Score Test" and got this:

That is quite strange, because when I did nothing and hit the same button, it gave me a score of 920 (worst possible value).  Which is just the opposite of what I originally got when I aligned the hues correctly and got a perfect sore of 0 (best possible value).    [See attached]

P.S.  Used Mozilla Firefox 24.0.

That is odd.

The glitch is repeatable from here.  Maybe it's my browser settings?  I use firefox with noscript, and only allowed the xrite.com site despite other sites attempting to run scripts.

Not sure where the Option for "noscript" is, because I could not find that within my version, which is the most current.

It's an add-on.  Has to be installed.  Check "Tools>Add-ons" then enter "noscript" in the search field.

It's a great security helper.  Cripples the entire internet, then you allow sites to run scripts one at a time.  Only sites you trust can use java, flash, and many other possible threats.

I have read that red/green "color blindness" is the most common form connected with color vision deficiency, affecting a significant percentage of the population.  The most usual cause is a fault in the development of one or more sets of retinal cones that perceive color in light and transmit that information to the optic nerve.   This type of color blindness is usually a sex-linked condition.   The genes that produce photopigments are carried on the X chromosome; if some of these genes are missing or damaged, color blindness will be expressed in males with a higher probability than in females because males only have one X chromosome (in females, a functional gene on only one of the two X chromosomes is sufficient to yield the needed photopigments).

I scored 11. Like Buddhi, I had trouble distinguishing the greens.

According to this site, I have deuteranomaly, the most common form of colour blindness:

Oddly, it's worse through one eye than the other for me.

Maybe the alcohol has a beneficial effect upon your retinal cones.     jabbering
