Have you ever argued the color of a sweater or were told that something was one color but your eyes tell you that it's not? Well according to X-Rite, the company that specializes in color and owns the Pantone color system, "1 out of 255 women and 1 out of 12 men have some form of color vision deficiency." There are those who know that they have a deficiency and others who are blissfully unaware, but this simple color recognition activity on their site inspired by the "Farnsworth Munsell 100 Hue Test" will tell you exactly how well or poorly you perceive color compared to those your age and gender. The challenge seems easy enough but you quickly begin to second guess your choices. Take the color challenge here and let us know how you did.
