    Are you safe at traffic lights?

    I got 10/10 but one was an educated guess.

    I got 10/10. My father, an electrical engineer, passed every one of these he took, but was definitely colour blind. His was green/grey rather than the most common red green. I remember him having an argument with my Mum about a hated grey carpet that had the whole family puzzled. It was green. My daughter seems to have the same problem. There is a green rug in our spare room that she says is grey!

    Fortunately for drivers, traffic lights are arranged vertically so people with a red/green problem can go by light position

    Did you find the second shape one easy? I picked the correct answer because it looked less like the other two. The first shape was pretty obvious.

    The thing is, we could all see colours differently. We only know that blue is blue because someone told us. So, it's not really surprising that we see subtle shades differently. We have two wheely bins. One is a light green and the other I reckon is slate grey but my wife says it's green. So if I ask her which bin has to go out and she says green, I then have to ask if it's the green bin that is green or the grey bin she thinks is green. This invariably leads to "Why can't you look on the calendar like I have to???" To which I reply "Why don't you put it out?" I know, it's a daft thing to say but I can't help myself.

    Personally, yes. As I was getting towards the end I did start to worry that maybe I was doing something wrong, that there was some trick I hadn't noticed. The obvious answers meant I'm colour blind or something, then I hit the submit button - 10/10.

    That was really easy.

    But then the only colour I ever disagree on with people are some navy blues and dark purples

    Colour blind and got 0.
    I favour blue and so everything has a blue edge.

    10/10 although I did have to think about the woman shape one.

    I apparently have a bit of an issue with light green/turquoise/blue. I see something as green and others see it as blue.
    I also saw our old suite as green when everyone else thought it was grey

    My husband has a grey suit he insists is blue. I'm not sure which of us is wrong.

    I second this light green/turquoise/blue colour "blindness"

    Maybe it's a ginger thing :P

    Oh and...
