Recently Raj found out that he was color blind and requested his readers to take the color blindness test on Flixter. When I first scrolled through the quiz questions, I thought it was some kind of fun since I wasn’t able to find numbers in those circles.
After spending considerable amount of time, I finally came up with 6 correct answers out of the 10 questions. The 4 failed ones had single numbers and even if someone showed me where the number was I couldn’t see it!
I still thought that the quiz was some kind of fun and that very few people would have scored 10 out of 10. But I was disappointed to see the average score of 97%!
The next day I sent the quiz to my colleagues and friends; almost all of them scored 100% with a few exceptions. The frustrating thing was that other than scoring 100%, they were competing for setting the fastest time!
More interesting was the way they handled the quiz; they could see the numbers clearly and were searching for the option which had that number. Me on the other hand was checking on the options first and later was trying to find the number in the circle! So this in a way confirmed that I am partially color blind; partial because of the fact that I could answer 6 out of the 10 questions J
Now I am wondering if I was color blind from start or was it caused by the countless hours I spent in front of the PC! Meanwhile you guys go ahead and take the quiz to find out if you are color blind!
