Test Your Color IQ

Posted on: 10 October 2008

This is a great test. I first heard of it over on TOP. x-rite has a little test that you can take online to see how well you can distinguish between colors. After posting his scores, TOP had this to say:

Both Ctein and I noticed on this test that there are slight luminance variations between some of the tiles, which can tend to throw you off. I’m more sensitive to luminance than I am to chroma. I was aware of my uncertainty in the region in which I showed error.

I tried it out and wouldn’t you know it–I got the same score as TOP had had difficulty in almost the same area. I admit I ran through it a bit quickly but sometimes the more you think about it, the worse off you are. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
