    Color test - how good are you?

    I'm colorblind so I sniffed around the webs and found this awesome color test.
    http://www.xrite.com/custom_page.aspx?PageID=77&Lang=en
    I'm apparently blind as f*ck. My score was 122 after like 10 minutes of fidgeting with so many ultra-similar squares and I can do a bit better, third row looks pretty similar all the way through, but it just hurts my eyes so I stopped, the longer I look, the more everything blends together.
    So guys, how good are you?

    According to Photoshop color blindness simulation, this is how I see the test.. OHGODWHY?!

    EDIT: After my second try, I got 75, but that was hard

    I did this test 5 years ago and thought I’d give my middle aged eyes another go at it.
    I did it twice and got a 20 score and then a 0 score on the second try (nothings changed in 5 years). The second time around I concentrated harder, enlarged the page/swatches, cropped around the dark space and blacked out the screen background.

    I did it really fast and got a score of 8 I like it, I think I'll do it regularly to keep me on my toes. Thanks for posting.

    I'm 100 I never know I'm colorblind until now. This is unbelievable. I'll practice with it until I get good score.
    Thanks for the great test link.

    I'm 49.

    Not bad in my eyes considering I'm working with one real lens and one artificial.

    It's probably a good idea to merge this with the already existing thread if possible.

    on a sidenote, it was pretty easy to get 0 for me. It's great that I can see the colours, applying them in a painting is a completely different matter

    11, but I think it was beginning to trigger the beginnings of an opthalmic migraine.
