What’s your color IQ? Take this test and find out.
Okay, when I first went to the page, I looked at it and thought it would take forever and almost skipped it. I’m glad I didn’t. It really doesn’t take that long.
A couple of noodles (needlework doodles) that I keep at my desk for times when writing doesn’t involve typing, i.e., I am thinking, or exercising my other noodle. They will become tags and go away somewhere.
My color IQ is 3. Apparently, I have trouble discerning some greens. A perfect score (you discern colors perfectly) is 0 and a really bad score (can you say “color blind”?) is 1409. My high school band teacher was color blind. That’s hard for me to imagine. I get such pleasure from color, I think I need to more consciously appreciate my ability to see it.
How effective is this test? Beats me. Let’s hear what your scores are; if they’re all 3s maybe we should be skeptical.
