Hidden away on the x-rite website is an online version of the Farnsworth Munsell 100 Hue Test. The FM 100 Hue Test is traditionally used to separate persons with normal color vision into classes of superior, average and low color discrimination.  The test is deceptively easy looking, just rearrange the little blocks so that they are in hue order.

After all the block are in the correct order by color, you score the test and hope for the best.

I think my eyes are pretty good. I trust them to tell the difference between a red light and a green light. I mean I have been able to safely cross the road for years without getting splattered, but when I confidently pressed the score test button I was amazed to see that I was not perfect. While 3 is a great score, I was truly disappointed since I was absolutely sure they were all right.

So go on and test your color IQ.

The score to beat is 3.
