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....
