Zero for me (perfect). It took me about 5 minutes to sort everything, my monitor was uncalibrated. Swapping a tile with it's neighbors highlighted the hue differences more effectively for me.

I scored a 17 and am color blind, so I was pretty pleased with that result.

I don't think monitor calibration will affect this much unless you are crushing one color something fierce. Generally you are going to still see gradiations in the middle of the hue ranges even on uncalibrated monitors.

You'd better be zero!

That makes more even more pathetic since I'm not. I think I will try it on a different monitor.

No need for that Art. Just follow the trick mentioned by two others plus these other refinements:

1. First, sort the colors roughly. Start with the obvious ones that match either end and work to the middle.

2. Now step back and see if there is any single color that looks wrong. If so, move it roughly to the right or left.

3. Here is the main trick. Start at one end, and swap out every two colors to see if it looks more right. This is easily done as all you have to do is drag a square and move it back and forth. For people familiar with computer science, you are basically performing a "bubble sort" algorithm.

4. You may want to double-check your choices above by starting at the other end of the row this time.

I think just about everyone can get a perfect score this way. If I hadn't gotten bored, I would have gotten there myself after doing #4 above . In the above sense, this is more of a puzzle than a true color test. What eye doctors use is the real thing....

Me too, hence my similarly high score. I can see basic colors, but none of the nuances (especially at low value) which others can.

I scored a 4. Score attached. Happy with that for a guy in his mid-late 30's.

Wish I knew which ones I got wrong.

Scott I also scored in your neighborhood. I need to take it again but spend a little more time with it.

This should be required for every ISF tech and should be the first qualification test before being aloud to enter the door for certification. It would weed out those who think they know what good color is who are actually seeing something else.

I might take some time to try again. I went through it fairly quick. But my main excuse is it was done on a medium quality unclalibrated pc monitor. If I had a htpc what would be more interesting is how one would fair doing it on their own projector. (For those who didn't do it that way anyway).

Scored a 4 - twice - which isn't too bad on an uncalibrated 19" LCD with 54 year old eyes with lens implants (cataract surgery in both eyes) and a huge floater in the right eye from a vitreous detachment.

No problems in the blue-green area, both times the errors were in the pinkish area (right side of the bottom line)

It was pretty much the exact same for me. Took about 5 minutes on my 23" uncalibrated LCD. Scored a 0. Swapping a tile with its neighbor definitely helped.

I scored a 0 on the first try. Color calibrated Apple cinema display.

I'm an art director by trade, so this makes me happy. I was actually kind of nervous when I hit submit. ^_^

Wow that messes with your eyes. I took about 5 minutes. I'm 28 and have otherwise perfect vision (20/15 left, 20/20 right). Uncalibrated cheapo LCD.

Final score: 23

Scored a 4. Only took a few minutes but I think the lighting in my office messed with me a bit. Persistance also took its toll at times.

Scored 0. I'm thinknking even with a badly calibrated display I would imagine the variation in color would be consistent and should not have an effect on how well someone does.
