In class we discussed how cones in the eyes are responsible for the perception of color. This really interested me because I always wonder how other people really see color. To test this out I found this pretty interesting color hue test that I had a few people test out. The test:Color Hue Test. The test lays out 3 lines of colors in various hues. You have to drag and drop the colors to arrange them in hue order. A perfect score is a zero, so the lower the score the better. The website states that "1 out of 255 women and 1 out of 12 men have some form of color vision deficiency." I took the test, as well as my mom, my dad and my boyfriend. I scored a 32, my mom scored a 105, my dad scored a 251 and my boyfriend scored a 500. So I guess the fact that the website gave was pretty correct. If anyone has free time, I would recommend taking a look at this website because it is pretty interesting to see how you really do perceive color.
