8 Percent of People are Color Blind - This Quiz Will Tell You if You're One of Them


Only about 8 to 9 percent of people in the U.S. are color blind, with men making up most of that number. Some people think "color blind" means seeing only in greyscale, but in fact, most of these folks are red-green or blue-yellow color blind, meaning it's hard to distinguish between these hues. If someone has ever commented that your clothes don't match or laughed when you identified a color they didn't see, you might be color blind (or maybe they are!).

Ever tested your ability to see color? For people with color blindness, some of letters and numbers hidden in these images will be difficult or impossible to see. Try your hand at our color blindness quiz and find out if you're one of this exclusive group. Of course, this test is just for fun and you should see an optometrist if you're concerned, but in the meantime - click on!

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
