    I can see different colors, but their descriptions of the colors are wrong.

    Odd, because I see, in order:

    Lavender
    blue
    green
    yellow
    light beige
    pink

    exactly how described by the page.

    Under what lighting conditions are you guys viewing your screen?
    Right now for me it's incandescent lights. Or it could be the gamma setting for on your video.

    Just in case, right click on your desktop background, click "properties," click the "settings" tab, and make sure your color depth is "32 bit."

    Weird, the first and the last are indifferent

    I couldn't see the last 6 colours at first glance either. But just a slight tilt of my laptop screen away from me and the 6 colours were reavealed!!!

    That's funny, when I tilt my screen the green becomes blue and all the colors become really strong :O (colors are still mixed around though)

    Not in the least. I've always past every such tests with flying colors :wink:
    Besides, just to be safe, I asked both my wife and daughter to double check me, and they both agreed that with the same colors I saw.

    How many of you that see the colors differently are using laptops or flat panel displays? Their displays are sensitive to ambient light conditions which CRT monitors aren't.
