Who is Althouse? * View only LAW posts * Contribute * Shop AMAZON*
I got 797 which is certainly horrible. I had a woman who worked for me who would give such a good descrpition of the color of a subjects car, or the color of their hair, etc. I'm retarded on color..I mean I'm hue challenged...a good alias.."Hello my name is Hugh Challenged, do you know where your neighbor works?"
Hey, I got a 24. They don't say what that means though. And they didn't ask for my address, so I guess they won't be sending a prize.
Compared to the scores above my 16 should make me eligible to host an HGTV special.
I got a 3
I was going to answer, "Badly," but I got a 3. So, "Not perfectly."
Way too much work. I have a patriotic buzz on going. Sorry. I only see Red, White and Blue this weekend. If I want hues, it will be in the explosions I create this weekend.
I got an "8". If someone gets a "0" is Althouse going to hire them to pick out her next set of drapes?
I thought I had done better.My score: 71
I was under par.. I'm so proud of myself ;)
Slightly painful. I never went through a fireman/cowboy/etc phase. I wanted to be a fighter pilot from as earlier as I can remember. I didn't realize until around 16 that I was red/green deficient. Bye-bye cockpit...or any other combat arms job period. Kinda sucks when you're in a family who's service spans generations and every man around you has jumped out of planes to kill people.
I got a 36. They don't really tell you what it means though. Percentiles would be nice.
Scored an "eight" also. Lucky number if you're Chinese, LOL.
I ran out of patience so my 147 was not a true measure but it was good enough for government work. You could spend an hour rearranging those squares. That would be the IQ test part of it.
108 out of 1520 - for males over 60.Not too bad, I suppose.Jason (the commenter) said...I got an "8". If someone gets a "0" is Althouse going to hire them to pick out her next set of drapes?Nah, Ann's BFA probably gets her something in minus territory.
Sorry. I only see Red, White and Blue this weekend.Wait--those weren't the main colors in the test?
I got a 52, which I think keeps me solidly in the middle of the bell curve, where I'm just content to be after losing sight in one eye.I think Unemployment with his/her 3 just discovered a new job skill to list on the resume.this was a fun time killer in the feels like 105 degree heat
From the title, I thought this post was about today's 6th Circuit decision.
27 - - not too bad for an old broad, but considering how much time I spend staring at pieces of fabric, cutting them apart, and putting them back together again, I had expected to be in the single digits.
My mind said Ack ...no waaaaay! as soon as I saw the instructions.So I didn't even start.What's my score?
16...despite the terrible monitor and dreadful lighting here in the office.
I could have done better but I choked.
I got a zero. I should have studied harder!
I got a 66. On my laptop.This test probably reveals more about the quality of the viewer's monitor than anything else.
15 for me.
Those are all different colors, right?
I always tell people that I'm open-minded and truly color blind.This proves one.
I got a 51. I was much better in art school, but after an auto accident damaged one eye, color acuity started a downward slide. That's why all my socks are the same color... well, I thought they were the same color. OH, NO!
I was gonna say "tl;dr" after the first row, but my curiosity got the better of me and I went back and finished. 33. Meh.
The test looks just like the food on the squares of the lunch trays in grade school.I didn't know what that shit was either.
139 - Low colour acuity.Not too surprised.
28 and now I have a headace. I might have gotten better but by the time I got to the last bars I was getting eyestrain.Still. Not too bad.My mother (now deceased) and brother could never ever do this. They are both color blind.
Pogo: Those are all different colors, right?Not only are they all different colors, but they all have individual names (which you should know).
I got 0, which is a perfect score. Good thing I didn't have time to go back and change any answers.
I got my 3 on a Chromebook.
If I cross my eyes during the test, I see a 3D Gloria Steinem.Yipe!!!
This reminds me of me handing my clearly perfectly tuned guitar to a real musician who strums it, makes a face, a proceeds to tune my guitar.
"they all have individual names (which you should know)"Usually, I just go Hey! There he is! How ya been, dude? Somebody usually says the name later, and I work it in then.Man, Magenta, it's been years!
My 36 is most likely on the bad side of the bell curve in case anyone is trying to figure out where they stand. I say that because I was diagnosed with mild color blindness many years ago.
I got a 3. That was fun...thanks.
Pogo: So I didn't even start.What's my score?Congratulations, you're now qualified to be President of the United States.
4. I'm 44 yr old male.
I got an 8 as well. I can't believe so many people got the same score.My errors were in the blue green area. Did anyone with the same score have their errors in a different part of the spectrum?
I scored 26, which was much better than I thought I'd do, as all the women in my life had me convinced that I effectively color blind.
950.I don't let colors push me around.
27, but I probably got lazy on some of the tiny differences. I want a percentile, though!
Regarding the state of American politics and jurisprudence Leonard Cohen said it best:Everybody knows that the dice are loadedEverybody rolls with their fingers crossedEverybody knows that the war is overEverybody knows the good guys lostEverybody knows the fight was fixedThe poor stay poor, the rich get richThat's how it goesEverybody knows
Everybody knows that the boat is leaking.Everybody knows that the captain lied.Everybody's got this awful feeling.That their father or their dog just died...
I got a 25 - and now my eyes hurt. Thanks a lot Althouse!
I got an 8...
I got a rock.
I got a 58 which is not great but considering I lost interest about half way through and am not so young, I'll take it. Hearing is another matter.
I got a 0
Wow. I spent about 3 minutes working on the top group before the tedium overwhelmed me. I was no where near the point of being unsure whether there were any more moves on the row or not, my brain just suddenly said to me, "OMG, why would anyone waste their time moving these squares around???"My score: 797.wv: ockuslea - the name of the color of the 5th square from the left on the 2nd row.
Damn, that was a hard test. Got a 39.
A 4 on the Alien gamer, but a 12 on the Dell web surfer.
16It was the monitor.Too darkThat's the ticket.
Pogo, want any more?
* Your score: 0 * Gender: Male * Age range: 40-49 * Best score for your gender and age range: 0 * Highest score for your gender and age range: 1520
93.So now I need to know if the scale is logarithmic because 93 is a long way from 0 but MUCH better than 1000.(PS After a while it gets tiresome fine tuning the shades so on a couple rows I said "Good enough")
I knew a guy who could score perfect on these tests every single time. He was an automotive design engineer, working in interior trim, and it gave him a lot of job security. They tested everyone in the department twice a year.I didn't even try taking the test. I scored lousy on it back then, and that was in 1990. No need to see how much worse I've gotten in 20 years.
And I want to know what Palladian got.Though he's no gay activist he better score pretty high (no I mean "Low") on this test. Just as you want your musicians to have perfect pitch, you want your artists to have "perfect hue".
0. Perfect color vision. I also like to think I can see in black, white AND shades of grey. -cpwv: "stosiv," what comes after stosiii.
I got 151 -- high score for my demographic is 1520. I think people just hit 'Submit' to get out of the thing when they realize how annoying it is.
Craig,Yes, indeed--I already confessed to that. :-)
I got an 83, which I think is not too bad considering I only have a B/W monitor.Pong anyone?
I enjoyed the test. Of course, I work specialty software tech support and put together 5000 piece jigsaw puzzles (after tossing the boxtop into the other room where it won't be a distraction). I want to see how all the pieces fit, and that's why I like the variation at Althouse. So many different perspectives as each person struggles with the puzzles Ann presents. -cpwv: "fichmat," the matrix that holds my fich files.
I got a 123. I don't get the meaning either. If my group can go to 1520, why is 123 low color acuity?Does it matter?When will I stop asking rhetorical questions?
36. (Gah, the lines started moving around when I stared at them.)
Pat - Have you watched Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead? Rhetorical question heaven for question junkies.
I scored a 10 - male age 40-49.From what I can tell thats pretty good.
@PeterHeh. Are those arranged by color?
I got a 4. Apparently my deficient area was the green hues.
I got a 4 on a 24" wide screen. I'm 39 years old. My deficiency was apparently in the blue area.Given my self-ascribed artistic affinity, I'm cool with that.
my score was 39, but I did it in like 30 seconds
Um, PERFECT COLOR VISION here, baby.Which is why I'm such a great artist. Which is why y'all should buy my prints!
I got a zero. I figured it wasn't that hard and that most people probably got a zero. I'm really surprised.
"And I want to know what Palladian got."See above.And thanks for defending my honor in that thread. Until I read your comment, I was convinced everyone thought of me as a radical gay activist. It's terrible the reputation one can get around here when the "loudest" commenters are crazy people with gigantic neurotic hang-ups.
"I got a zero. I figured it wasn't that hard and that most people probably got a zero. I'm really surprised."It is amazing. Growing up, I was always astounded how "loose" most people's color perception seemed. When I do freelance design work, I'm still amazed when clients seem to have fundamental flaws in their perceptions of colors, yet insist that I'm the one that is deficient."No! We want the greens to be PISTACHIO!""Um, this is pistachio green.""No, it's KELLY GREEN.""I sampled greens from 20 photographs of pistachio nuts and averaged the results.""Well then your photographs were wrong. We want pistachio green, like this!"
I got 71. I didn't put a lot of effort into it, since all of the squares were bleen, grue, or grey.Compared to the scores above my 16 should make me eligible to host an HGTV special.That all depends. Did the colors "pop"?Guys typically can put names to about twenty colors, anyway (excluding combinations like "yellow-green" and the prefixes "light" and "dark"): black, white, grey, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, brown, tan, pink, purple, and usually turquoise (or cyan, if they're nerds), rust, magenta, and khaki. Oh, and we know "scarlet," but only because of Sherlock Holmes and Gone with the Wind, and we're liable to call it "bright red." Tell us something is "mauve" or "chartreuse" or "cerise" and most of us will just look confused. If you want to be more specific than that, take a sample down to the paint store and have them scan it.
I got 8. They give this test to admissions officers so they can more accurately discriminate, per the 6th Circuit's ruling.
I scored a 10 - male age 40-49.From what I can tell thats pretty good.I got an 11. And I'm in your demographic, too. I guess that's not too shabby.
"Hey, being colorblind should make me a liberal, right? Oh, right, they are the most color conscious motherfuckers on the planet."They are that.
@Palladian"Well then your photographs were wrong. We want pistachio green, like this!"ROTF!!!Been there.
I got an 11 in the 40-49 demographic as well
@kcom"I got an 11. And I'm in your demographic, too. I guess that's not too shabby."Good going. Who said colorblindness was a good thing anyways...@sixtygrit"Hey, being colorblind should make me a liberal, right? Oh, right, they are the most color conscious motherfuckers on the planet."Riiiight...liberals are fixated on color. Fixated. Stuck. Obsessive.Morgan Freeman is right.
Color is the suffering of light.--Goethe
8. I was seriously confident I'd get a perfect score. Oh well.
7, for a 44 year old male.Much better than I expected.
Rick Lee: 8. I was seriously confident I'd get a perfect score. Oh well.Don't worry, all the cool kids got that.
We want pistachio green, like this!" Hee! I am ok with my score. I am just going to blame boredom and my computer's imperfections!
26. Way too much work, but mesmerizing in a stoner sort of way once you get started. Afterwards they have you click a button to see how your score compares, but when you click it, it doesn't. Bit of a tease there.
wdnelson, hey, I'll have to see that again!Palladian, that's awesome. Maybe Bruce is a hidden artist?The Color Test is interesting, too.http://www.viewzone.com/luscher.html
I got a perfect score, but I've always done well on standardized tests.
I got a 99, which is far better than I expected. I fail all the color vision tests for the miilitary.
I did an embarrassing 145, but consoled myself that I grew weary and hit submit.I remember doing much better years ago. My excuses ran out, however, when looking at Palladian's perfect arrangement. Didn't look perfect to me. Ergo, I do not see color perfectly. Good thing my wardrobe is mostly black.
I have to confess I got a 99 by comparing texture and brightness, not color.I read that they injected some dna or something into the eyes of a monkey and got him to see color as it caused cones to grow in his retina. It is apparently a permanent result.Some women have a fourth variant of cone that allows them to see an entirely different range of colors. I want to see that and I want to be able to see infrared. It's coming someday. Why not? If all they need to do is inject something in your eye to let you detect colors, then why not do it. I can't wait to see what I've been missing.
got an 8, but i work with pantone colors daily. I have the entire pantone color gamut. It's part of my work. Hell, i even have pantone iphone app. I disgust me.
23. Will try again using the larger monitors on the desktop and fresh eyes after I get some sleep.
I want to see that and I want to be able to see infrared. It's coming someday. Why not?During World War II the OSS used people who had had cataract surgery to spot "invisible" UV signal lights, for example, between submarines and observers on shore. Back then the surgeons used glass replacement lenses that didn't filter out ultraviolet the way their original lenses did, and blue cone cells are sensitive to UV. I wouldn't recommend lens replacement surgery just to be able to see in ultraviolet, though.If all they need to do is inject something in your eye to let you detect colors, then why not do it. I can't wait to see what I've been missing.If you have defective red-green color vision, I've read that you can learn to distinguish colors fairly quickly (a couple of days) by wearing glasses that have one lens tinted red and one untinted. Your brain learns to interpret the differential inputs from your two eyes as color. I believe the 3-D glasses that use red and cyan lenses will work, too, but people will look at you funny if you walk around wearing them.
I got a 0. Perfect color acuity. Given that I work with thread, I guess it helps, huh.
bleh, I got 0.
I got a 21 but admit that I didn't really focus on the problem, so to speak.
My score was four.On Sunday I'll see my main interior designer (I usully refer to her as the "the lady who picks stuff," because that sounds less lame), so I'll be giving her this test.She once picked thirty six interior colors for a relatively small house. To my eye many of these colors looked essentially identical. This lady is hated by painters during the summer months. But they love her jobs during the winter (her specifications keep these guys busy during the slow months when exterior painting is impossible).
8. But I tried hard to get them all right. I wonder if there is an optical illusion factor in addition to color vision acuity.
10. I wanted perfect, though, considering the time I spend with Berol Prismacolors.
39, male, age 71. Good or bad? Most errors in the oranges.
"I scored 26, which was much better than I thought I'd do, as all the women in my life had me convinced that I effectively color blind."It was a test of perception, not taste. You can see exactly what 2 colors are, but your idea that they look good together is a different matter.
It was easy to score a zero, any mismatch jumped out almost 3D. But I still suck at all forms of art.
I scored a 7, mostly because I was tired of "refining" the row for perfection.Seriously, who gives a rip as long as you can see the basic color groups?
Taking that test reminded me of a scene from Mr Blandings Builds His Dream House where Myrna Loy was describing the colors she wanted for each room.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZwOGVWqHAw
I got a 16, which seems pretty good for people my age, I guess.Some guy got a perfect score while another 1520.I guess I can pass the DMV color vision test.
3. Screwed up the dismal yellow colors.
