Munsell Hue Test

Mondays may be a relief for workaholics, but most of us are trying to disguise the fact that we either didn’t have time to shower this morning or that we’re still drunk from last night. So while you’re pretending to work, why not exercise your visual acuity?

I found online versions of the Munsell Hue Test posted a few different places, but either place you take the test, it’s not as easy as it looks. The game involves putting lines of colored tiles in spectral order. The distinction between tiles is harder for some than others, especially if your rods and cones are still sleeping. ┬áBut if you can prevail against eye fatigue, hereditary eye disease and the watchful eyes of bosses… then maybe your week is looking up.
