Count the colours
« on: September 03, 2015, 02:29:44 pm »
Simple, right? Just count the bands of different colours in this picture. Disregard compression artifacts. Do it visually (as in, don't inspect the numerical values of the pixels - that doesn't work anymore because jpg). Bands not near each other can be assumed to be of unequal colour (it's a rainbow).


I'll go first because OP: 37

I think I see 39. Is this a test to check your monitor calibration?

Nah its an eye test. like if so see a low amount (like 20 or something) you have 2 different cones, around 30 three and 35+ four.
There are 39 total, so just subtract the number of doubles from it. Though i'm fairly sure it doesn't work at all.

Also fyi this test was already on 9gag an the like a few months ago :P

My dad has daltonism, but as far as I know I'm not a girl :P Anyway, how could a test that checks for 4 colours even work on a monitor that only has 3 base colours?

Girls are less exposed to Daltonism/color blindness because the gene that causes it is a recessive gene on the X chromosome. Females have two, so they have a backup. I also know tetrachromats are mostly female for the same X chromosome reason but I forgot the exact explanation.

Anyway not counting the colors when I can see smooth gradients. :P

Effectively it tests monitor calibration as well as your eyes of course, and old 6-bit LCDs would be at a significant disadvantage..

Also the test is probably bulls***, but who cares right

I count something like 40. But even without the bad JPEG compression artefacts, this test is bad and you should feel bad.

I recommend this test, which is way better: http://www.xrite.com/online-color-test-challenge (I got 0 once!)
