It might be a test for something if reaction times to the different combinations were measured, if levels of competing stimuli were controlled for, and if there were some indication of what different scores are hypothesised to mean. Otherwise, given that the test seems to have no end point, the only thing it seems to test is the limit of one's patience (what happened to the promised "switching between different kinds of task"?)

It seems rather pointless to me. I can't see any 'switching between different tasks"

I don't know, but it was boring, pointless and somewhat disorientating.

After over 1000 clicks I couldn't be bothered any more. Is there an end to it?

This was my result

Score: 941
Attempts: 1006
Percentage: 93%
