Only 1 in 4 people see the colors in this graph, can you?

What color is the sky? Blue, right? But do you see the color blue the same way I do? Maybe my blue is your green or my green is your purple. What’s more, in the past no one was able to see the color blue.

It sounds a bit strange, but after half the internet imploded with the existential issue of whether the dress was blue and black or white with gold (white with gold, of course) it became very apparent that not everyone distinguishes colors in the same way.

For example, many see a distinct difference between gradients of green, yellow, and canary color, while others simply consider all three shades to be “yellow.”

In reality, the issue comes down to the number of cones, or color receptors, present in each individual’s eye. Professor Diana Derval, an expert in neuromarketing, has published an interesting test that supposedly determines the number of cones you have. After posting the test on Pulse, it became interesting to see the various ways people appreciate this image.

To do the test, count the colors you see in the spectrum:

How many could you make out?

Less than 20 colors: Derval argues that you are a dichromaton and only have two cones in your eye. Twenty-five percent of the population is a dichromat. But there’s nothing to worry about, because you have good company since dogs are also dichromats. Derval says dichromats have a tendency to wear black, beige and blue clothing.

Between 20 and 32 distinctive colors: you belong to the trichromatic group. That means you have three different types of eye cones in the purple/blue, green, and red area. Derval says trichromats enjoy different colors and can appreciate them very well. About 50% of the population is trichromat.

Between 32 and 39 distinctive colors: Like bumblebees, you’re a tetrachromat. Derval assures that these types of people have four types of cones. They get irritated with yellow and will most likely never use it. Approximately 25% of the population is a tetrachromat.

Over 39 Distinctive Colors: You’d Better Count Again! Derval says there are only 39 different colors in the image, and probably only 35 are properly interpreted by a computer screen.

I counted 36.
