    color challenge

    As quilters we work with color all the time but the challenge says a fair percentage of people are color deficient and even color blind.

    See how you do, http://www.xrite.com/custom_page.aspx?PageID=77&Lang=en

    I scored a 0.

    I scored 34 too, but do have some eye problems so am very pleased with the result. Hmmm could screen resolutions and colours influence this?

    I can't get it to load. Maybe too many people, trying at once.

    I scored 98! Love color, but it's still a challenge at times.

    I scored a 7 but I think I am now blind from working on this!!! Apparently my weak spot was right in the middle of the lines of color. At least in my age group I did not score over 1500 which apparently someone did. I have a feeling that score came about because the person did not understand what this test was asking him/her to do. Now I have to go rest my eyes.

    PS: I also wondered if personal computer screens could make a difference in the colors.

    I got an 8, better than I thought I would do. It might help that we have a good monitor on the computer. Cool test!

    I think our monitors may also affect/afflict our scores.

    Okay everybody, I got a 70 and think that that is pretty darn good. Stop whining about not being perfect. My age group is 60-69 and the high # is over 1500 so I think I fall into way above average. And if you got zero, good for you. I do have a ? If your color sence is that precise do you find it easier or more difficult to choose fabric due to the fact that you do see so precisely. I think I would find it harder to match color cause there is a natural tendency for perfection. What's the scoop?

    I scored a 35, so what does that mean?

    This is a really good question. I scored a 0 and sometimes it drives me nuts when a fabric is half a shade off from what I want or think it should be. Sometimes I just have to settle for what there is because I can't find that one perfect shade.

    I scored a 69, but I think that was wrong. Too little delineation between colors.

    I scored 967, is that a good number? It was a little frustrating.
