I had no idea that .5 percent of women and a whopping 8 percent of men are color blind, according to the National Eye Institute.
Do .5 and 8 percent seem like low numbers to you? Well, that actually works out to an incredible 1 in 200 women and 1 in 12 men. Who knew so many people were affected by color blindness?
And while most people are born with it, some people lose their ability to see color later in life. So I decided to see just how good my color-viewing skills were. This exclusive test is easy and extremely revealing, just like the quiz that determines if you have a photographic memory.
Could you be color blind and just not know it? Scroll though the eye tests below. Try to see if you can spot the hidden animal in each one. Then answer the question, “What animal do you see?” It’s really that simple!
I may not be color blind, but I definitely didn’t get all of these right. 7 out of 11 isn’t too bad though!
How many of the animals did you spot? Did you have trouble seeing the colors? Let us know in the comments.
