Ever wondered how accurately your eyes can see the subtleties of color?
Find out by taking this quick test. Drag and drop colored squares in each of four rows according their hue, then submit the results for calculation. The lower your score, the better your eyes discern color.

The test indicates which hues you see best and also lets you compare your results with others in your gender and age range. I wasn't too thrilled when I got a 61 until I found out someone scored over 1,000. Wow.

For most people, this is just a fun little time-waster (or a way for you super-competitive types to beat up on your pals -- "Dude, I see olive-green better than you!"). For anyone in Web or graphic design, Photographers, however, it might be an interesting little test to see how your eyes measure up.

Post your scores here, please. The lower the score the better, it says

This is a pretty cool little test.

I scored a 4 with my weak area being in the greenish-yellow-brown area.

Edited to add: People without properly calibrated monitors/browsers (or just crappy monitors) may be at a slight disadvantage due to the color ranges being off.

i blame my bad notebook screen for score of 15 !!!
sharaff 10 years ago
holy cow Helen. Funny I did the hue test on the old monitor and my score hahaha 510.
Did a second one on my macbook pro and it is 13. my brain is fooled when i look at it for too long. is it cheating if i leave it for a while and then do it, later. i may have to try that.

K, 15 is low. but Helen's zero, i dont think i can beat it.
~ geisha ~ PRO 10 years ago
hehehe....the colour police huh?.....don't know if i like
maybe i am just better practised at it....since i give the test to others alot...

if you can't beat 'em....join 'em.... ;)
i did the test on the bad pc at work....

you did great!.....compared to k and sharaf anyway.... ;P
my monitor here is pretty crap...the colours don't look as good as on the mac at home...but the test was ok.....
or maybe it made it easier?????
kktp_ PRO 10 years ago
or may be you should be disqualified in any test of this kind when you probably have all kind of charts fixed in your brain, LOL :)
sharaff 10 years ago

I got 8 and I'm pretty happy with that given the family history of colour blindness (and the cheap uncalibrated monitor!). And it was the blue greens than I fell down on.

19 but then I do need my sleep and also I have to admit that I do wear glasses because I have shortsightedness.
I was really bad in that green area before the turquoise.

Well I re-did the test later at around 9:50 p.m. on Tuesday ( which it is, down here in New Zealand ) and I got an 11!

Which goes to show, that it's better to do this test when you're not tired lol.

4, go me.

Looks like my weak point's in the green-turquoise area though. Damn, one of my favorite colors...

This was so much fun! Is each incorrect tile an added point? I was very surprised that I got a 0!
