My cousin linked to this earlier today. She scored an 8, where as I got a 0 (lower scores are better, 0 being perfect). Women usually score better than men.

So are you wasting money on that high end display?

What does this test tell you if you can only deal with it for about 20 secs before you are bored and quit?

I got 0, too. (screencap)

My process was to sort the most obvious to the left and right, not worrying much about order. Then I sorted each third separately. Toward the end of each row sort, it was fairly easy for me to see when two swatches were swapped.

The question should be do you have a color vision deficiency?

I do and so do about 5% of the male population compared to less than 1% of the female population.

Or whether your monitor isn't particularly well calibrated. Or good, for that matter.

I worked from right to left.
