Here's a really good online color blindness test. It will give you a good idea on how you see slight color hue variations compared with others.

yeah it's much more sophisticated than others I've seen and really gets down to very fine differences which are important for doing pro art.

Others might find it a good eye exercise to improve the sharpness of what you can identify.

There's a bunch of other color theory details, which will help explain the RGB CMYK color systems to beginners that you find in photoshop and video editing programs.

here's a pdf with lots of technical specs for the Munsell color system. Munsell created a system to define color, which is a really useful tool when someone asks an artist for a specific color to be used in a project, like I want it kinda 'glowing purple' or pink, there's lots of different variations and the Munsell system helps everyone at least start from the same point and agreeing on what color they really mean.

The system also help with color mixing in paints, inks and computer screen and video colors etc
