I found this test rather interesting.
We often discuss what to call colors, but rarely how we "see" colors.

Let us know your score....the poll is anonymous. :wink:

Many men have physiological issues with color perception.
It would have been more interesting to make 2 polls based on sex.

What operating system and browser is being used by those who can't connect?

PS Kerensky and Jack Ogden scored the same: 14.
