Colour Test

My friend Nancy, sock mentor and knitter extraordinaire over at Wyoming Breezes found a colour test that was really fun and interesting. 
It tests hue differentiation and gives a score. You can also see how your score relates to others of same gender and age type.
It involves dropping and dragging colour tiles into order and you can take it here
I got 27 and struggled with the pinkish/purple hues the most. As a crafter and knitter etc I thought I was pretty good with colour but I have really noticed a change in my eye sight and perception as I have aged over 40. It would be fascinating to do this test every 5yrs and see how this progresses wouldn't it.

Pop over to Nancy's and read some of the results in her comments.

It would be really fun if you want to post your score and comment here too....


  1. Isn't it fun to see the different scores that everyone got? I am going to retake the test in a few months to see if my score changes.

  2. wow I got 4...I'm quite shocked. I used to be really good with colour but have as though I'd lost it in the last few years. Perhaps I've just stopped listening to my gut! It was the last row, blue/greens that tricked me.
    Thanks for sharing this.

    cheers Kate

  3. I got 50.... not very good! And it drove me crazy after awhile - I think I was starting to blend them all in!!

    Oh well.... glad I like black :)

  4. Thanks for sharing this Tanya, I scored 7 which I was happy with considering my eyes aren't great right now. :)

  5. Wow .. I got a zero score ... and it was a fun test. Age 54 .. not too bad :)

  6. hum well I got 8. I guess I should be pleased considering my eye sight... Lets hope its does not degrade to much over my lifetime!!!

  7. This was a really interesting test! I got 4, and I'm 36 years old. Blue/green was the weakest. Surely though, there must be some impact on the test dependent on your computer monitor? I forgot to see if there was any info on that on the site.

  8. I'm 56 and I scored 40, I was thrilled as I did it without wearing my glasses. Who knows what I could have got if I had worn them. Probably higher knowing my eyesight.

  9. I'm 57 and got 4 which I thought was really rubbish until I read the lower the better!

  10. I am 48 and I scored 57 - is that good? It made my eyes water!


  11. Wow! What fun. Especially since this 65-year-old (grumble, grumble) scored a 3. And that's with cataracts (I really should do something about that) and an impatient husband hanging over my shoulder waiting to get at the computer. I wonder if 30+ years of quilting has paid off? Thanks Tanya, you made my day!
