Given the sudden interest for the color of dresses and vision, here some of the fascinating findings.
It all boils down to how many cones, or color receptors, you have in your eyes. Professor Diana Derval posted an interesting test that determines how many cones you have.
To take the test, count the colors you see in this spectrum:
If you saw…
Fewer than 20 distinctive colors:
Derval says you're a dichromat and only have two cones in your eye. Twenty-five percent of the population are dichromats. Yet, don't fret, you're in good company - dogs are also dichromats too. Derval says dichromats have a tendency to wear a lot of black, beige, and blue clothing.
Between 20 and 32 distinctive colors:
You're a trichromat. That means you have three types of cones in your eye in the purple/blue, green, and red area. Derval says trichromats enjoy different colors and can appreciate them. About 50 percent of the population is a trichromat.
Between 32 and 39 distinctive colors:
Just like a bumblebee, you're a tetrachromat. Derval says these kinds of people have four types of cones. They also get irritated by yellow and will most likely never wear it. About 25 percent of the population is a tetrachromat.
More than 39 distinctive colors:
You better count again! Derval says there are only 39 different colors in the test.
