A friend of mine emailed me this link to a most frustrating and intriguing colour test.
It consists of a series of eight screens. You are given a word at the top and two buttons to choose from at the bottom. You have to choose the COLOUR of the word and not the word itself.
But you have only a couple of seconds to make your decision, and the colour of the buttons changes as you move your mouse over it – just to confuse you even more before you make your choice!
The idea is to integrate your left and right brains (which is supposed to slow down Alzheimer’s and all those degenerative brain diseases).
Apparently, according to the email,
“It takes an average of 5 tries to get to 100%. Follow the directions! When you are finished, enter in the subject line how many times it took you to achieve 100%. Don’t be embarrassed. It’s harder than it seems, as it should be!”
Man, oh man! I’m too embarrassed to say how many tries I needed. But now that I got 100% (much to my own surprise!) I can just feel the synapses firing.
Go on, give it a go!
