This simple test checks how well you see different colours – and women usually beat men



THERE is an easy way to figure out just how good your eyesight is using a simple test designed to assess how well you perceive different colours.
Researchers from London-based online optician Lenstore tested 2000 people and found women and men aged between 31 to 35 usually performed best.
The test assesses your ability to perceive different colours
The test works by asking the user ten different questions like identifying the lightest or darkest shade of a certain colour, or matching identical shades.
However, women did seem to have a slight upper hand when perceiving colour, with the average woman scoring 57.7 per cent, compared to 53.8 per cent for men.
After you finish all the tasks you are then told how many you got right and how your score stacks up to everyone else.
Take the test below (or follow this link) and let us know your score in the comment section.

Don’t be too worried if you don’t get a perfect score as less than 1 per cent of the 2000 people initially surveyed scored ten out of ten.
In fact post people only just score over 50%, with most people getting just six questions right.
There are a number of factors that can influence how well you see colours.
As mentioned before women typically perceive colours slightly better than men, while younger people have a higher perception than elderly people.
The theory is that men perceive motion better because they needed to spot prey or predators from afar, while women adapted to perceive colour better to forage for edible plants more successfully in ancient times – but scientists have been unable to definitely prove a cause.
People between 81 and 89 had the lowest scores of any age group, with an average of 38 per cent.
The results also found that people who speak more languages were more likely to get a higher number of correct answers.
People from Cyprus scored higher than any other country with an average of 66 per cent, while Australia came in at number six with 57.5 per cent.
Other countries that had the highest scores included South Africa, United States, Bulgaria, Germany, Poland, France, Portugal, Zimbabwe and Spain.
