Color Blind Test – Check Your Color Vision

Post by St3v3Murray »

I'm always thinking about how we see, mostly how you see and how I can learn to see the same way, but there's also the curiosity about our actual vision and the colors we see as well. You know what I mean when you see someone post something and think wow, that's a lot of green, or red. It's not like they pushed Saturation all the way up, more like they must see certain colors differently than you.

It could also be their monitor calibration of course, but I wonder if it's more, if it's us, so I thought I'd post a colorblindness test and see how we all fare. You don't have to post your scores, that's not the point, I'm just curious if we all see colors the same.

Good luck! S-

Wow, I thought I had really good color vision but a few of them were really hard and a few I had to say Unsure.

I did the first test and it says I have Normal Color Vision but it concerns me I couldn't see a few of them. S-

I just ran it and I have normal color vision. I didn't ask for the scores (don't wanna buy the glasses) but I'm very confident that some of the ones you marked "unsure" may in fact have not had anything in them. That's also part of any color test.

I should have mentioned there's no need to buy anything and appreciate you mentioning that!

And I was thinking the same but out of curiosity I added some more tests and will try them too. S-

normal here... but am sorely tempted to buy the glasses (which I won't do on principle, but Damn, I'm tempted!)

I could do my normal color work wearing the glasses and everyone would tell me I have created the bestest black and white ever!!!!!

Blimey. I have mild proton or something like that. No wonder I like b&w. Never knew. And I have had regular eye tests since I was 20 I put unsure when I didn't think there was anything there. Maybe I should retake. Thanks. Matt

Took the test Steve !!! I have often wondered about my vision. Turns out, I'm normal when it comes to color, but I still have my doubts.

Mild doesn't sound bad as long as you know which colors you have issues with. S-
