The Farnsworth-Munsell 100 Hue test was created in the 1940s by Dean Farnsworth.

The test asks participants to order a set of hundred ties by their hue. Farnsworth, a US Navy Commander in the Second World War, based the test on colours in the Munsell hue system.

Originally the test was carried out using physical tiles.

A set can be purchased today for hundreds of pounds, or it can be done for free online by clicking here on Color Munki!
