    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.

    That was neat. I think the quality of your monitor will affect your results.

    I did it first with a very zoomed-out screen, and quite quickly. 25 score.
    Then I zoomed it a lot, double-checked each movement and position. Perfect score!
    I don't know if you can extrapolate anything from that.
    I had some trouble with the blue-green section, though. I've long experienced some small amount of difficulty telling the difference between very close turquoise colours, and the bar graph seemed to back that up on the results of my first test.
