An IQ test for color

by | Monday, September 08, 2008

If there is an IQ test for everything, why not one for color. This is Howard Gardner multiple intelligences run rampant. Check out the Color IQ test. BTW, my score was 27 (where 0 is a perfect score and 99 is as bad as you can get!). Irrespective of what you think of the test, I must say the interface for collecting the information is quite cool, similar to some of the survey techniques I had discussed in the personal DNA test.

Banksy’s biggest trick OR why I hate art museums

I have been a fan of Banksy, the subversive British street artist, for a long time. I love the visuals he comes up with, the subversive quality of his art and most importantly his ability to take art out of the galleries into the real world. His most recent trick,...

    I can hardly believe it but I got a zero. I am female, 37 years old. Those colors really start to mess with your eyes after a few.

    I am female, 30yrs old and my life is ruled by colour.
