Check this out: http://www.xrite.com/custom_page.aspx?PageID=77 It's a Munsell hue test, and it's pretty tough. I got a 3, but it definitely strained my eyes. My slips were in the pink range, which I think is pretty funny since I am no fan of pink.

I also had trouble with the blue greens....and that's my favorite range....

I wonder if there's a correlation.

You do realize that the test is inherently flawed, in that it uses electronic media for the distinction of the color and color display is inherently flawed.

Wow I had issues in just about every range and I got 43.
This could be why I've always put weird colors together most people wouldn't. Usually looks okay though

Took the test again after moving my laptop into a brighter room, turning it this-away and that-away so that I could really see. NOW, I'll tell you my score...a 10.
Will not be getting my eyes checked! I really believe lighting makes a difference. First time I took it I got 58.

I got a 44 on the desktop and a 13 on the laptop. I agree, colors read differently on different computers and light makes a difference. It was fun! Thanks!

I don't understand the scoring. My score was over 200 but when I typed in my age and gender, it said I had a perfect score of 0. Are you talking about your score before or after the age adjustment? I expected a poor score because of my blurred vision.

I'd like to see my arrangement of the colors next to the correct arrangement so I could see where I went wrong.
My score was a 50.

I guess a 10 isn't too bad for my age! :-} It was fun!

I scored 0. Go me, I guess. I suspect it says as much about the monitor I inherited from my Dad as it does about the color vision.

I used a strategy of sorting things roughly to the side they needed to be at, then switching anything that looked a little off with its neighbors until everything looked right.

I got an 18, for my age range the scores ranged from 0 to 99. I had the most difficulty with blues/greens, which explains why I always have to ask my hubster: "Is this more blue or green?" sheesh. My eyes are shot!
