How well do you discern shapes?

Default How well do you discern shapes?

Because I often have people tell me that they can't believe I "could see that," I have realized over the years that not everyone finds the differences in shapes as easy to "see" as I seem to. Today I found a test that helps you determine your ability to discern the vague differences in shapes. This could be a great resource for quilters and instructors. You might enjoy trying it!

Thanks, Jan. I scored better than 4%. I also took the color test and did well on that too. I guess quilting comes in handy.

Hi Jan, I got 96% right. I was a little worried since I'm on my cell phone that I wouldn't be able to see the shape clearly.
Thank you Jan.

Top 4% for me too. I think it's because my Dad was a Machinist and I did so well in Drafting class. I seem to do a lot better when math and a structured set of patterns is involved.

I wonder with these sorts of 'tests' just how true the results are?

I scored in the top too.

Or maybe because quilters work with patterns in fabric and patterns, we have a natural aptitude.

hmmm... I was in the top 4% also. Maybe everyone is? Or maybe we're all special.
