In the past we have featured multiple color blindness tests, where individuals suffering from this particular “disorder” could’ve felt put on a side. Even though, only 7% of male population is color blind, I thought it would be interesting to explore reverse color tests, where rest of us would have difficulty solving them. I have found exactly what I was hoping for at G. Sarcone’s website! In fact, most color blind people can easily read what is written in the picture above. That means, if you fail the test, you probably have the full range of color sensitivity that is attributed to color-sighted people. Anyway, this test is not to be considered by itself sufficient to determinate defective color vision. Now let’s see a mockup of what they were able to read, while rest of us couldn’t:
Color vision deficient people have a tendency to better night vision and, in some situations, they can perceive variations in luminosity that color-sighted people could not. It might also be worth mentioning how U.S. Army discovered that color blind people could spot “camouflage” colors that fooled those with normal color vision!
Regular Color Blindness Test no.1
Now let’s see if you are able to find a circle, star, and/or square in this Demonstration Card below. In reality, everyone should be able to see a circle, star, and square as this is a demonstration piece only.
Regular Color Blindness Test no.2
Let’s see how the previous, “normal” tests worked like. Try and find a circle, star, and/or square in 3 seconds or less in this picture below. While the colorblind individuals should only see the yellow square. Color normal individuals should see the yellow square and a “faint” brown circle.
Regular Color Blindness Test no.3
The question is same -are you able to find a circle, star, and/or square in 3 seconds or less in this picture below? Just the opposite from previous test, colorblind individuals should now see the yellow circle, while color normal individuals should see the yellow circle and a “faint” brown square.
