Instructions: Answer these 4 questions that will tell you how smart you are.
1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?
ANSWER: Open the refrigerator, put in the giraffe, and close the door. This question tests whether you tend to do simple things in an overly complicated way.
2. How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?
Did you say, open the refrigerator, put in the elephant, and close the refrigerator? - Wrong Answer.
CORRECT ANSWER: Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in the elephant and close the door. This tests your ability to think through the repercussions of your previous actions.
3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All the animals attend ... except one. Which animal does not attend?
ANSWER: The elephant. The elephant is in the refrigerator. You just put him in there. This tests your memory.
Okay, even if you did not answer the first three questions correctly, you still have one more chance to show your true abilities.
4. There is a river you must cross, but it is used by crocodiles, and you do not have a boat. How do you manage it?
ANSWER: You jump into the river and swim across.
Have you not been listening? All the crocodiles are attending the animal meeting.
This tests whether you learn quickly from you mistakes. 90 percent of the professionals tested got all questions wrong, but many preschoolers got several correct answers. This conclusively disproves the theory that most professionals have the brains of a four-year-old.
