I got a 4! I think my monitor's a bit uncalibrated though. Maybe it's cheating a bit, because I have synesthesia?

Eloisa said...

I just woke up and tried it.
I got an 18. Not bad for someone with a migraine.

I took this last year and got a 0-- one of the very few perfect scores I have ever gotten in life!

Clare said...

I got a 12, and I'm an oldster (over 50), FWIW.

i'm surprised with my 8 because i'm always seeing colours different from other people and have guessed my way through colour-blindness tests before. the bigger problem might be how much i enjoyed organizing the blocks...

i am a synesthete as well. I got the same score as the other synesthete (4)

Jeannie said...

12 that was tough...
apparently i have a hard time on blues and pinks..

also got a 4 (greens were troublesome) not a synesthete but am a painter.

vel said...

I got 0, but I think the result it's quite monitor and light depending :)

(also of course, coffee & biscuits related...;)

This one is real fun - saved my day. I love colour and it says - perfect colour vision. Wow! Will treat myself to another coffee for this result ;-)
Always enjoying your blog

nick sung said...

4 — not bad!

neki desu said...

8.
humble pie for someone who holds herself in high esteem for color sense. perhaps the monitor's off ??
:)

Megan said...

Wow. I got a 0! Funny thing is I have terrible eyesight but guess I am good at colors. Another funny thing is my boyfriend and I were having a color debate last night and now I have definite proof that I am not the color blind one. Ha!

Thanks!

i scored a three last year, and i'll take it again this week-end.

I got a four. It was really hard though, I definitely felt like my eyes were slowly concentrating less and less.

I notice that any with a somewhat "bad" score has not posted. I was surprised to get a 34!!!!! and I have always thought I was a good designer with a sense for color!

I will blame this on my tiny temporary net book (or this could perhaps explain my odd sense of what works in fashion as well)

I scored 3, felt ok since I´m an artist obsessed with colors. (I´ll try it again later on another computor..)
Thanx for posting! And allso, love Bas Jan Ader (privileged to see and discuss his work last year when we showed three at the art gallery where I´m workin)!

Elizabeth Kennedy said...

Tammy said...

Well, I got a 4 too. I wonder how we would have scored had this been in "real" instead of on our monitors...fun test, thanks for pointing it out!

eri said...

i also wanted to say thank you for posting about the book 'from alice to ocean'. i checked it out from the library and really enjoyed it. the mix of beautiful Australian desert and late 70's photography is perfect.

Amy Malinsky said...
