    cyclopse Are you color blind? Get tested and find out!

    I went through several years of my life not knowing that I had red-green colorblindness. I found out when I was about 15 and it was a huge relief when I finally knew (I found out through a “color dot test” in my Biology book in high school). After I discovered that I had a condition, it made sense why I would make so many mistakes in identifying the correct colors of certain things in my everyday life- certain clothes seemed purple when they were really blue, leaves on a tree would look brown when they were really green, etc. etc.

    Color Vision Testing
    Take this test to find out if you have a colorblind condition. There are several other sites online, but this one has more explanation on the topic than others. It explains that it is more common in males, shows side by side comparisons of a normal’s person’s view and a colorblind person’s view, and so on…



    One little side note that I find of funny: I passed Art in both high school and college with an A.

    I well I'm not color blind, but while taking the test, i kept on looking for the stars.
    I thought that I was then however.

    I'm sorry for you, does it effect you much anymore?

    My father-in-law is color blind, but I have now idea when he was diagnosed. I suspect he was younger, because he has a severe form of it. When he goes shopping for clothes, he wears either the pants or shirt he wants something to match and has someone select a color that goes with it. And he has some kind of organization system to match what goes with what. He's too obsessed with how colors go together, for someone who's color blind.

    Years ago I was in a park somewhere and someone who worked there said a color blind person had been there the day before and had seen snakes everywhere. People with normal vision get fooled by the snakes' coloring/camouflage and don't see them as easily.

    Wow!!!! I wish that I was color blind only for that reason.
    At my house during the spring/summer I'm always looking for snakes but almost never find them.

    ROFL! Awesome!

    Am I the only one who doesn't think that'd be a worthwhile tradeoff? Thanks, but the snakes can stay camoflaged from me. heh

    Don't be sorry, it's not like it's cancer... Over the years I have adjusted and have learned to use logic when trying to determine "my difficult colors." For example, if I see a man wearing a shirt that I belive is blue or purple, then I choose blue... It is not likely he is wearing purple. This method is not always be right though....

    My friend is color blind, although it's not natural. His best friend hit him in the head with a metal baseball bat on accident. o.o;

    For him.. black=purple. I think he also sees pink as a different color too but I don't know what he sees it as.

    BTW, his best friend then is still his best friend now. :P
