    I scored 291. Not bad for a color blind guy.

  4. Jason M. Bryant says:

    I scored about a 30. I have no idea how good that is. At then end it had a screen for comparing your score to others, but all that had was the high and low scores for people my age. That's not useful.It's a neat test, though. When I first looked at it I thought it was like a hardcore version of an eye exam.

  5. Alex Jay Berman says:

    Damn. I scored a 15. Since each of my eyes sees colors differently (there's a slight hue divergence; one eye sees things more sharply, skewed to the blue, the other sees things more warmly, skewed to the red), I was trying to double-eye it; looking with one eye only, then the other. Had I not been going for speed, I think I would have realized that a triple-eye look would have been better: Just one eye, then both, then just the other.

    I score a 94. Oh the shame of 8-bit color eyes!

    I scored a perfect 0. Then again, I think I better have.

  12. Amy Goldschlager says:

    27. I think I'll stick to words.

  13. Jerry says:

    I got 153. Since I was told the highest score for my age/gender group was 1520, I'm guessing that's not very good.

      You wouldn't be the first color-blind comic artist to color comics. Howard Chaykin might be the all-time champ in that regard.

    My color vision is 0 (perfect)! That makes me happy because I am a colorist! If anyone needs a colorist plz contact me. I am looking for work!

  21. mike weber says:

    I got a 20. I suspect that, under better conditions (including using a monitor that's not ten years old and bought second-hand for $50), i might have done better.But maybe not. I'm bookmarking it for whan i *do* manage to get a better monitor.
