Color Test Challenge

I didn’t know:

1.  Color vision can indicate certain medical conditions.
“The Farnsworth Munsell 100 Hue Test is one of the most widely used tests in industries where color decisions are critical. The test has been used in clinical applications for the study of ocular disease and other medical conditions such as diabetes and Parkinson’s disease. It’s also used to determine the effects of pharmaceuticals on color vision”.

2. “FACT: 1 out of 255 women and 1 out of 12 men have some form of color vision deficiency. Take the online color challenge, based on the Farnsworth Munsell 100 Hue Test at: http://www.xrite.com/online-color-test-challenge

I lOVE colorespecially bright colors. They make me smile. It’s good that I grew up as a brunette – dark brown, not quite black –  since deep bright color I’ve always loved looked good on me.

Now I have always admired soft colors, neutral colors – on other people’s clothes and in other people’s homes.  But strong contrasting color has always been my “cup of tea”.  Until now.

No longer growing up I’m now growing “down” – salt & pepper grey not quite white. More and more I’m drawn to softer hues of the bright colors I’ve loved.  Instead of red, I’m picking pink.  Instead of forest green I’m drawn to lime.  Instead of deep blue I’m attracted to robins’ egg blue.  

When I found this color test on-line I was intrigued.  How well do you see color? 

P.S.  On the test “Hue” = saturation and brightness

  1. I got an 11…..started with a migraine….so had the brightness on my computer turned down, think that made a difference. and my migraine is worse. I’ll try again sometime.
    Love colors! Still love my brights. Wear all kinds of colors! Even though my hair is white in front, and brown in back. haha….parting my hair on the side I have a lovely white streak. That may be a bit blonde soon. Our house…inside…is so subdued, it is not inspiring…but my studio! It’s bright blue with swirls of a purple shade and yellow dots!
    Wheeee!

  2. I got a 22 and a migraine. You also might be interested to know that I am a close friend of Vandi Clark and I too am dealing with Fibro. Maybe we can exchange horror stories sometime. 🙂

  3. Well, I scored 36. I honestly thought I’d do better. I seem to do very well with embroidery floss when the colors are close.

  4. I scored a 26, I’d like to be 26 (again) so I could make some of the same life mistakes that were fun all over again!

    1. Rick,
      Mom used to say: “If there is such a thing as reincarnation I want to come back as a healthy, wealthy, 32 year old bachelor.” 26 isn’t far off!
      (You might not remember because I think she might have said it to me in her later years).

      P.S. Won’t tell you what I scored because I don’t want to rub it in . . .
