How well can you perceive color?

Take the test

it's interesting seeing the results of mates - comparing the designers to everyone else

Dr Karl on Triple J one day said that females have 1 more colour receptor than male counterparts.. Hence the reason why the age old argument that apricot is not a colour, it's a fruit..

I'm sure you'd be able to find the fact somewhere on JJJ's or Dr Karl's website..

31 but I've known for years that I had some difficulty with telling the differenc between browns and oranges.
Probably a good thing I'm not a graphic designer.

I scored 8.. there were 4 in both the blue/greens and the purples that i got wrong, but they must have been with 1 or 2 of each other.. Plus I had a couple of beers under the belt at the time..

Hmmm, using a 3x6bit TFN LCD monitor won't help peeps much. You really need a CRT or expensive LCD with 3x8bit colour to make things fair on yourself.

Got 8 with 2 beers and a leftover margarita under my belt. I wonder if it'll be any different sober?

I got 11. I'm happy with that.

Green is good , Red is bad
Code is black, background is white.

The problem also lies the difference between and quality of people's screen - as well as how much time they spend distinguishing colors in everyday life.
I agree you will have good color discernation (word?) but I imagine Rupe you would have a good quality screen and calibrated it fairly well.
Mine is still on the factory settings.

Yeah, i've got a 5 year old Apple 23" widescreen at work, so i imagine it'd still be decent for quality. I think i adjusted it for black and white when i started using it a few years ago, but other than that i don't think it's ever been calibrated. I might try it with the 17" BenQ thing i'm using at home.
