Comment : You are probably colorblind


I was not expecting 5 points because I was REALLY not sure about my answers. I knew it since military service, but I have no problems with my cube or other stuff. Those test are just so hard for me. When I first looked at them I thought: "OMG I can see nothing". I spent like 2-3 minutes for most of them to guess what it is.

Can you distinguish between red and green on the traffic lights?
I guess the fact that red is always on top and green is always on bottom makes this an easy task even for colorblind people...

Got a score of 2.

Kind Regards
Martin
Yeah, I just wanted to know if he can distinguish because in some countries you are not allowed to drive a car if you are colorblind.

I NEVER would expect that from you, seeing as you have (or are extremely close to) the UWR on 3x3 average.

Conclusion: Being colorblind doesn't mean you can't cube VERY well.
As far as I know - and we had a course of colors in University some semesters ago - there are two different types of colorblindness: red-green and yellow-blue. ~5% of the population is red-green colorblind and 0.4% or something like that (you cannot really be precise about that) are yellow-blue colorblind. The "cones" in the retina are not so good or you don't so many if you are colorblind. There are 3 different kind of cones: red green and blue and all of them are more sensitive in another absorptionspectra-area. In your eye they are then bundled to red-green, blue-yellow and one other (I don't know exactly). So what I wanted to say is, that if you are red-green colorblind you may be able to see other colors correctly and also the degree of your colorblindness can vary. It is also known that colorblind persons have more rods so they can better see in the dark and in the corners of their eyes. Maybe he can distinguish very good between the brightness of the cube-colors.

okay, so half-colorblind (as in people who have half right) get it

can someone who gets a 0 or 1 see if they can see it?
I want to know if this one counts as a real test?

Does anyone here who is colorblind use the patterned colorblind stickers from cubesmith?

Also, I got a 1 and trafic lights are easy to tell the difference between, but if the were less contrasting and not in the same place everytime, it would be harder.

As expected I scored perfectly. But I already knew that I have extremely good vision.

I see absolutely nothing that would justify someone not being able to cube just because they are partially colourblind. Being colourblind doesn't give you arthritis...
I would only expect someone to have trouble if they were completely colourblind, in which case there are cubesmith's new colourblind stickers which should be legal eventually.

All, if you take the test multiple times, it does not reset from 0, but keeps adding to the total. I got 10 first, then altered one answer to find out what it would say. But it said I scored 19. I tried a 3rd time and it said the score is 28. Apparently it does not reset.

@Novriil, if you truely saw what the answers indicate (regardless of what you wrote), then consider your answers correct. For example, you write "5 " (with an extra space character), it might consider it wrong but you should count it as correct. Likewise, for other objects like circles versus disks.
