How Well Do You See Colour?
I was browsing through Facebook the other day and I came across a post about a Colour IQ Test, so of course, I had to take it. I scored 3, which unlike the other type of IQ tests I’ve taken, bodes well for my ego.
Do you see any undertones in the above paint colour?
How long does it take? About 10 minutes.
What’s the point? You will discover how well you see undertones and to what degree (if any) you are colour blind! They state that ‘1 out of 12 men have some sort of colour deficiency’ and I have to agree with them. I’m amazed at the number of times I’ve been to a clients house and say to the main man, ‘What do you think?‘ and he says ‘Don’t bother asking me, I’m colour blind.‘ Enough said. In fact, this may explain why my Tim loves wearing his salmon coloured shorts even though his friends all make fun of him – he probably thinks they are green!
The only thing I wish this test included was some detail on what it meant if you were ‘within a certain range of numbers’. So, just so you have some guidelines to base your own number on, here’s how I classify things…
0-10 Colour Genius
11-30 I may not hire you to help me pick colours, but I still like you
31-50 One of your eyes might be slightly crossed from the other
51-70 Are your socks even matching?
70+ Would you like a straw with that wine bottle?
So, all of that being said, let’s get on to the test – I’d love to hear about your results and they BETTER not be better than mine!
Happy decorating and good luck matching your socks!
