How color sensitive are you?
This has been posted on other forums in the past, but thought it would be fun to post here too.

The lower the score, the better. I scored an 8. Apparently, I struggle in the green ranges. Maybe that's why I don't see green in moissanite as often as others see it.

Sparkly eye candy found at thefacetlounge.com!

My husband scores a zero. Show off. Crackup
Though, he does have an eye for color, which I am sure has something to do with him being an artist.

I scored a 7 with the same location of hue discrimination as you @MrsK . Looking at my chips before I scored I thought I did better than that. Fun!

This is kind of overwhelming! Not sure if I'm committed enough to do this whole thing right now, but I'm going to try. Lol.

ETA: It's not QUITE as overwhelming as it seemed at first glance, but I got a 19 and I'm honestly kind of surprised I didn't do better. I was blessed with perfect vision, but I guess perfect vision is not equal to perfect color acuity. Smile

Hm, late at night and I had to shut flux off and try to adjust my eyes, but I scored a 34 with trouble in the bluey/purples.

RE: How color sensitive are you?
I got a 0. First time I've ever been proud of one of those ....

It makes sense, though - I can be weirdly picky about matching tones, and I have a gift for buying, oh, a random skirt that will be an exact match for a top that I bought five years ago. Used to color-match pearls as a teen, and I did pretty well in the GIA diamond-grading course ... nice to have it confirmed!

P.S. - BTW, I've taken this test before and gotten 3 or 4 ... I think it probably depends on monitor sensitivity, to a certain degree.

OMG! I must be the least colour sensitive person on the planet.
I scored the whopping 108! Maybe I even have a tad of colour blindness, who knows...Confused

I did this before, I think I got a 3 or 4. I don't remember, but it was not a 0... but it did prove prove to me that I have the attention span of a newt. I found it so long and tedious, lol. I can't do it again. Tongue

Lol, agree. I wanted to do it again last night to see if I could score better, and I found that I was just physically incapable of doing it a second time.
