Dollyfroggy suggested a click version of this quiz, so here it is. Thanks for the suggestion!

Nice! I did not do well and probably lost most of my time visually scanning for where each colour was to click since they're not in alphabetical order!

Hmm, do you think it would be better alphabetically? I put them in colour (rainbow) order as that felt more intuitive to me. I found myself hunting around more when they were alphabetical. What do other people think?

Ooooooh… I never realized it’s rainbow ordered. Did a lot better and got 39 this time.

Alphabetical order would make it harder for me. I have the spectrum memorized; I don't have the alphabetical order of the spectrum memorized.

I didn't realize it was rainbow ordered, but rainbow seems better alphabetically.

However I also wasted quite a bit of time scanning (less so on my second attempt). I felt like it would be much easier to read if the words were not beside eachother but underneath eachother. Somehow your mind processes them better then, more all at once. And as a bonus leave dragging your mouse (touchpad...) around.

You need to have more time for sure. I missed like 20 of them because the time ran out.

If you take your time, you'll get all them correct.

It has to be quick so that it is a challenge.

Thanks for making this! I like it more than the original because you have to get it first try.

Yeah true, it's less forgiving. Thanks for the idea!

that one satisfying moment when the color and word match up perfectly:

That's the moment that throws me off the most. The word describing the correct answer makes my brain more likely to focus on the word of the next answer, instead of the font colour.

42/49 (covered up the word so i could only see the bottom 5% (i was still able to read some of them))

Should this be easier or harder for someone whose mother tongue is not English?

Level 73

Good question! My first guess was that it should be easier because it's more likely to get less distracted by the meaning of the word. On the other hand, you would need to search for the correct answer in a foreign language which should result in a couple of milliseconds slower reaction per word. I'm not native a English speaker myself so maybe I can try and find a version of the test in my mother tongue and see which was easier.

the only times i had to double check was when the colour was same as the word, I thought I had made mistake and then realised I was right

I try to cancel out the written word completely and just look at the color. That works best for me. Still missed the last three before time ran out.

Definitely cheating, but I just scrolled down to where I could barely see the word and went from there.

100% on the 7th try?????????

I usually mess up at the end due to me rushing to make it before time runs out.

GREAT QUIZ OVERTIRED!!!!!!

1:05 is the absolute perfect amount of time for this quiz. I took it 5 times before getting 100% and each time I was either a few seconds short or finished with 1-2 seconds to spare.

Glad to hear that. I think I set it as a minute at first and then added a little bit more when it seemed slightly too tight. My best time is 48s but I played it a lot when testing.

I feel like I took the longest when the color and the word actually matched. Those made me double check.

Guess that with a mouse would be faster, but with a mac touchpad at least cannot do it fast enough.

I use a Mac touchpad. I guess I've had practice though!
