The first time I saw that one it took me about 5 seconds while moving my moniter up and down to see the 5. I can't see a 2 either though.

But what does that test say now? Just how good you are in differing colors. But that doesn't say anything about if some color appears greener or more bluer for somebody

Just ran the test on my Lenovo laptop with different screen than original (long story, suffice to say I broke the original ).

Got a 12 on my first try, which is relatively high up for my age group of 20-29 males. I'd like to get my monitor calibrated through, considering I know this monitor is heavily skewed towards blue, and is really bad on greens and reds, although more so on greens.

Default Re: Color Acuity Test

I scored a 4, however, the test is meaningless unless presented on a calibrated
monitor.I work on production color equipment for a living and I can state without equivocation the test as presented is good for testing the color curve of your monitor!
It was still fun.Women do better at these tests with their higher number of cones.I do well because of practice, but I have female artist clients who can see subtle differences much better.For maximum hilarity proof a color print under non full spectrum lighting and then send it to a female artist for approval...failure imminent!I saw a guy adjust a machine to get a neutral 4 color gray out of it....only to see it turn pink in daylight.Fail.He adjusted it under energy saving fluorescent lights....which for the most part emit only a few spectral lines.And that makes accurate color reproduction impossible.

Default Re: Color Acuity Test

I got 6 using a recently calibrated Dell 2209WAf (e-IPS) display, with moderate ambient daylight. I was already sure i did not get it perfect, but was bored bubble-sorting the color bars over and over again.

Also, i have a bit of an odd condition where colors seem 'warmer' when i look with my right eye closed and vice versa. I've always had this and it doesnt get worse or better over time, not does it pose any problem at all. I suspect it could be point mutation in the green cone, which are not that uncommon.

Women on average will be better at these tests, not because they have more cones, but because a significant number of women are actually tetrachromats, with 2 different genes for the green cone (on on each X chromosome). Little is known about the practical implications of this: the different cones are present, but how the optic nerve and the brain actually deals with their signals remains to be studied.


Naming colors is a different matter too, since it is always a subjective thing. We learn the name of colors by identifying objects that have those colors as children. Such as everyone will state that the clear day sky is blue. If you take a color-accurate picture of that sky and clip out a little piece, they may very well call the exact same sky 'cyan', or 'indigo'.

It gets worse when frame of reference gets involved: al amost-ripe tomato would be called red when next to a green one, but orange-ish when next to a fully ripe one.
