How many colors can you see?

Take this test and find out how many of the colors in the visible light spectrum you can actually see.

Believe it or not, we don't see the world in the same way. That is because the number of colors we can perceive differs from one person to another.

The reason behind this is the number of cone cells in the eye, that isn't the same for everyone. The cone cells are photoreceptors and their number affects the number of colors you can see.

To find out where you stand, take this quick test created by Professor Diana Derval and compare your results with your friends.
