4 with all errors in the blues :-)

on a HP w1907v monitor. I like the little beast.
age range 30-39.

Verry interresting: The first time around I got a 28 (in the 50-59 age bracket). Second time around I did a first arrangement, then took a break to stop all the colors from vibrating, then fine-tuned while frequently looking away from the monitor (HP LCD). Second score was a 4. Hmmmm.

... and my errors were in almost exactly the same place as Mike's! This suggests that 1) we have exactly the same color vision characteristics; 2) we have the same monitor; 3) humans in general don't discriminate well in that spectral region; or 4) there's some glitch in the text.

28 for me, and I'm 32. Of course, I'm also a bit color blind, so I wasn't really too dissappointed. Quite a few of the squares looked identical to me. Of course it points out yet again to me why maybe, despite using calibrated monitors and knowing a fair amount about color management for ink jet prints, I just don't care as much about color accuracy as other people do. I guess maybe I just can't see the problem sometimes (but if I do see it, it must be a doozy...)

Scored 4 with an uncalibrated Dell E229WFP LCD.

30-39 male.

Got a 10 in the 50-59 age group. Old eyes and bifocals don't help.

Hmm I got the exact score and error range as Mike, but I'm "only" 30-39 lol... using a Dell laptop 15" LCD 1680x1050 uncalibrated. and yeah luminance is irritating.

0, You have perfect color vision!

30-39 age

did it on a 5 year old Eizo FlexScan L567 15' LCD monitor

Scored 38 on a non-calibrated ViewSonic Graphics Series G70fmb monitor here at work.

I'm curious to see if I can do better on my calibrated Dell at home.

Age 62.

Does trying a second time counts ? First I got 3, tried again and I got 0. I rather think I was reckless the first time. Nice test BTW.

i have perfect color vision!

take 1
under some time pressure since i was off to work

other notes:
old crt monitor, google chrome, 31 y/o

70+ years old, scored 20 on a 2004 uncalibrated PB g4 using store bought 2.5 diopter correction reading glasses :)

Scored 3 (30-39). Mistakes were in an area I knew I was not good at.

Someone gave me this monitor. I am 30, female. Got a 19. Consider myself lacking in these aspects because I have seen the work of someone with the keenest eye make color swatches from paint before & realized I ain't that good, even though I fancy myself an artist.

I scored "Zero". I'm 33 and a dude. Although, I am a graphic designer and I was using a 22" Apple HD display. But still.

I got a 4 in the 20-30 year old range. Yay me! I am such a geek, at least I know my monitor is pretty accurate.

Scored a 4. Hit back and found my mistake in a few seconds, got 0. Age 20-29.

Got a 0/perfect score. Almost fell out of my chair. Using an older low-end Viewsonic LCD, and my girlfriend constantly tells me I'm color blind because I can't tell whether my pants or socks are brown, black, or blue. I was expecting a triple-digit score. A lot of the squares looked almost identical to me, so it may have been random chance. Age 20-29.

score 109 64yrs male with red/green color blindnes

I did 7...

Am I so good??? :p

each ,in the middle area of course.
Well ,better than people around me let me thing about my color sense.

Nice little test ,indeed,should be more games like this.

0 (perfect score)
50-59 years old (age 58)

I was totally surprised at this perfect score as I've always felt a bit unsure of my colour identification abilities. Maybe I can learn to trust my instincts a little more from now on. (calibrated iMac screen used).

I score a 4, male 40-49, using an uncalibrated laptop display.
