The small but really neat browser quiz Chromantics asks ten questions touching ten different design environments. You need to choose the right one of two color options for each design task from a color-psychological point of view. I wasn't always right.
Chromantics: Who is the Best Color Psychologist?
always explains the correct choice with background information which was able to restore plausibility even when I would've made a different choice. You'll surely learn one or two things from the results.
For one, you'll learn things about color psychology which you probably didn't know before. This even happened to me after over 20 years of design experience. On the other hand, you'll also learn that there's not always one definite answer. In some cases, my opinion was generally different from the one the makers of Chromantics declared as right, and I can back it of just as well as they back up their color choice.
In any case, Chromantics is an interesting piece of knowledge for in between. It looks beautiful, does not only offer plain fare, and just takes up one or two minutes of your time. So, visit it and click through the quiz…
