8.

Hey, it’s a laptop, no screen controls other than generic brightness.

I got 29. I’m not a tint freak, but I thought my color acuity was pretty good. I guess it’s not quite as good as I thought. Then again, I’m surrounded by bright lights right now, including some flashing lights and lights of various colors. Also, I wonder how much the quality of the monitor you’re viewing on matters to this test. Probably more than it should. Yeah, I’m probably just making excuses, but it makes me feel better, okay? Facepalm

EDIT: I think that if I can remember to do so, I might take the test again when I get back home to my computer that sits in the corner of a dimly lit room, and see if that does make a difference.

I’ve never had trouble scoring zero on this test regardless of what display I use. I am curious how people in my age range managed to score between -158 and 39999750 though, especially with zero being a perfect score.

My “low discrimination” bars were all in the middle area, in the blues and greens. Maybe this monitor is out of calibration, or the super bright cold white lights around me are making a difference. Or perhaps my vision is worse in only those color frequencies?

These old eyes managed to get 30, which is apparently pretty good (for my age).

Move towards the light.

I got a 4. Just turned 46. Feel my eyes are pretty good. Anything closer than 10” from my face is a little blurry. Neat little test. I had 4 misses between the purple and reds.

I’m not surprised at my score since I suffer mild colour blindness. I really tried hard on this though, tilting the monitor screen, tilting my head, moving closer or further. I could see there were one or two that didn’t fit but I couldn’t for the life of me work out where they were supposed to go.

I’m wondering if maybe that’s why i’m not as concerned about all the colour/tint discussion that goes on in blf??

EDIT- my wife tried it and got 19. I’ll get my kids to try it tomorrow

I did this back in color theory in college. I remember getting a perfect score then. It’s not too hard because you’re allowed to keep dragging and comparing adjacent tiles. If you had a limited number of moves it would for sure be harder. We had to make gradient strips like this using gouache as well, boy that was a bitch.

I scored a 4 this time. Probably should have spent a little more time with it.

I scored a 3. Some of the greens looked the same, and sure enough, that’s where I messed up.

There is a longer and more intensive version of this test too, can’t remember what it’s called but is commonly used for jobs where color vision is important IIRC.

I got an 8 and I guess it explains why some of the tints that bug the crap out of people here on the forum don’t bother me as much.

If you got a zero, are you consumed with high cri and are bothered by greenish tints?

I wonder if it’s like people with perfect pitch wincing at all the notes that are not dead on.

I got a 31, and I admit I’m not as sensitive to tints as some – my wife in particular!

I do appreciate neutrals, and 219B’s are particularly pleasing, but so are MT-G2s and XM-L2 T6-4Cs. Another trait which may be connected is that I’m comparatively unaware of PWM. It has to be pretty slow before I pick up on it visually.

For comparative purposes, I’m over 70 and have had lens replacement cataract surgery on both eyes.

I always score a zero on this test, and I think it’s safe to say I’m pretty obsessed with CRI and tint. I am quite sensitive to poor colour rendering and immediately notice the difference in most settings. I’ve seen lots of people say it makes no difference to them out in nature because all the colours are so similar anyway, but the first time I tried a high CRI light in the woods it was immediately obvious all the shades of brown and green were rendered much better than my CRI 80 Zebralights, and certainly much better than the average CRI 70 LED. All the more so in the browns with a high R9 like the R9080 219B and E21A. Everything outside just looks “dead” to me without high CRI.

What I got:

Not bad for someone that trusts his ears far more than his eyes (I’m 4.0 nearsighted on both eyes and a lazy right eye, though thankfully no astigmatism).

I got a 0. I guess I’m a tint freak now. Is that how it works?

I scored 4, age 66

I wear bifocals, have trouble reading street signs, have cataracts and CSR, with essentially no vision in the center 50% of my left eye.

.

my favorite LED is the N219b 4500k 9080 sw45k, and I dislike green tint with a passion. I dislike my 6500k Optisolis due to the tint above the BBL. I generally dislike 219c LEDs, because I find them too yellow/green.

Either you ninja-edited this or what display I’m using has a huge impact on that pic. I know there’s a confirmed answer after it went viral but if you didn’t swap pics I can see where the arguments came from over it haha

Yep, depending on what device you view the dress, it can appear blue/black or white/gold.  :THUMBS-UP:

try scrolling down until only the bottom half of the dress is showing
that was the only way I saw any blue/black in it
-
and then having seen the blue/black then that’s all I can see
before I only saw white gold in this and other online images
