Farnsworth Munsell 100 Hue test
April 2, 2010 1 Comment
Have you taken this test? If not you should. I have taken it three times and have never got a perfect score. I once administered this test to a woman at the SIGGRAPH show in San Diego and she scored perfect many times in a row. She was amazing at seeing color difference. You can take the test online but that’s not as much fun. It’s better to take the test in person. The test is used by the government and industries where determining color difference is really important in a particular job function and it has been used for over 40 years. It consists of 4 trays containing 85 caps – your job is to put the colors that space the spectrum in order of transition from one hue to another. The test must be administered under a daylight balanced light booth as pictured here. If you haven’t taken it or you want to see if your employees are color deficient in a particular area I suggest you get the test.
