X-Rite has an interesting (but very difficult) online test to measure your ability to differentiate among hues. meuon is excused from the test...

Seems like that's pretty dependent on your monitor setup...

But of course - and they'll sell you their $4995 Hubble Laser Guided Color Measurement device to help you fine tune your monitor!

A 15... doesn't seem so bad for someone the Army determined as colorblind I guess. I was told I have a blue/green deficiency, but it seems most of my errors were between blue and purple.

That was very cool. I got an 11 on a fairly crappy monitor. I think I'll get the kid with the megacool monitor and better eyes to try it.

Done quickly: 369. I'll try again in the morning, I think I'm better when I'm not tired.

12 for me on my thinkpad. I was hoping they'd tell me where that was on the bell curve, though. Errors in three little clumps

23 - On my Dell 2200FP, I find I get better differentiation if I look at two color pairs straight on. Viewing at an angle decreases differentiation.
