One of my blessings is the ability to expertly discern color even in the most complex variations of hues and tones. If there’s such a thing as “Super Color Perception” — I have it in spades. I always do extremely well on “What Number Do You See?” color exams like the one you see below. Can you see the number 29 in the image? If you have red-green deficiencies, you will see 70 instead of 29. If you have total colorblindness you won’t see any numbers.
I wonder if eye doctors can be colorblind?
I would think not because how could
they administer such an eye exam if they can’t tell the different
between colored numbers? Aren’t there color changes in the eye itself
that one would need to recognize with perfect color perception?
Let’s take a quick color perception test together.
In this example, normal color perception can see a “5” while red-green colorblindness will the number “2” and total colorblindness will not see any number.
Do you see a “45” below?
If you have any sort of color deficiency you won’t see any number or, if you do, you won’t see 45.
Can you see “16” in the image?
Those with any sort of colorblindness will not see any number.
In the two images below, the first image has no number if your color perception is normal. If you’re red-green deficient, you’ll see the number “5.”
In the second image, there’s no number for normal color perceivers and red-green blindness will see “45.”
How did you do — better or worse than expected??
