Self Test

Check out this test for sensitivity to color perception. I scored 4, where a score of 0 is perfect, and over 1000 is probably severely color blind.

Yikes...that gave me a headache. I wasn't sure how much staring at the computer screen was messing with me.
My score was 22.

At the large manufacturing palace that I work at. We use the X-Rite Test. Our people in the color area must score less than a 5 on the test. (different than the website test) So far all have scored a 0. Females will must likely score lower than males. As you age, your score will worsen.

You could actually work in our color development area with the score of 4.

My score was a 56. One of our Assistant managers was around 1520. On this test it was an 84. I must be getting worse!

I went nuts in a couple minutes. I suspect my score will be as good as my dog's.

Whew, I was a little nervous there. I'm a color scientist (or at least I was in a past life) and I got a 0. :)

If you want to improve your chances of a good score, make sure the ONLY thing you can see are the tiles you are working on. Block out all the other tiles, turn off all the lights in the room, make everything black but that one row. I promise you'll improve your score under these conditions.
