When I started in the printing industry many, many moons ago, I remember being tested for colour-blindness. Luckily, I passed with “flying colours” as I was so excited about my career choice at the time. And when hiring staff for my own company 16 years later, I would borrow this book from my two brothers (who had a growing photo-lab and thus were also in the colour business) to make sure new hires were up to the task of delicate colour decisions. But sheesh, “The Psychological Corporation”?
Now here is the modern equivelent. iGame’s Eye Test is a simple online test that will assess the quality of your colour perception through a fun and simple game format.
The game works as follows: you’re presented with a grid of coloured boxes. All the boxes are the exact same colour except one — find the irregular box and click it to move onto the next grid. Each grid is harder than the one before it, and you have 15 seconds on each grid to make your decision. Clicking on a wrong box will also slash 3 seconds from the time remaining. Each box you correctly find increases your score by one, helping you move up in the animal kingdom in the area of colour vision.
After the test is complete, the results screen will tell you what animal your eyes are the equivalent to.
