Re: test your color IQ

Listen, someone in my age range scored 1409. 16 is just great, seems to me.

So I guess this means I'm on the mentally challenged side of things with regard to color? I was feeling pretty good about my 16 score (well, after my test-taking nausea subsided), until all these other scores came up. Oh, well. I'm pretty content with the idea that I don't see colors the way they're apparently supposed to be seen-- probably stems from the same mindset of preferring to see a blurry image to a tack sharp one. ;)

Well, that tested my resolve to get something productive done this morning, which obviously was not very strong to start with. I scored 8, but I was aware when doing it that there were a few adjacent squares that I simply could not distinguish from each other, so I had no idea which order to put them in. Old eyes, I guess. I did well when compared to my age and gender, is how I console myself. Anyway, that was fun.

That was fun. I felt like I was going cross-eyed after a while and also got a little nauseated. I scored a 16, but the lower the score the better, right?

I scored a 12 and I would have bet that it was perfect, so I'm
switching to monochrome work...
