Did you know that 1 out of 255 women and 1 out of 12 men have some form of color vision deficiency? Interesting thought I know. Take the online color challenge, based on the official FM100 Hue Test by X-Rite. Reply to the post and let us know how you did. I scored an 8 🙂

  1. Interesting post, Kimberly – I scored an embarassing 106. Although for my gender and age range, the highest (worst) score was 1520. I think I’ll have my daughter take it, as she and I are always disagreeing on hues.
