You’ve probably heard the saying that age is just a number. But did you know that the way people perceive colors changes depending on their age? A teenager might see red when looking at a picture, then start seeing orange in the same exact picture forty years later!
Part of what alters our perception of a color is how we approach a picture when viewing it. Adults, for instance, might pay closer attention to the details before taking a step back and looking at the whole picture. By contrast, older people’s eyes drift over the whole picture first, then zoom into little details that catch their eye. These acts can change color perception entirely. In fact, it’s an art form!
The colors that you think you perceive say a lot about your age and the kind of state you’re currently in. This quiz will test both your eyes and brain in picking up different colors. Depending on your choices, you’ll see where you fall on the color spectrum. See if the results add up to your actual age or not.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy!
