Quick Quiz

Now this landed in my inbox today. I'm not sure if I can format it to get it to work on Blogger format but here I go. You'll need to keep on scrawling down the page a bit as you work through it>>

It's a quick quiz to find out if you have a 'normal brain' or are a bit 'off centre'. Worth a try ... it's not at all hard to do - a few minutes concentration to get the answer - it may interest you..


At the end of this message, you are asked a question. Answer it immediately. Don't stop and think about it. Just say the first thing that pops into your mind. This is a fun "test"... AND kind of spooky at the same time! Give it a try. Now, just follow the instructions as quickly as possible. Do not go to the next calculation before you have finished the previous one. You do not ever need to write or remember the answers, just do it using your mind.

You'll be surprised.

You just thought about a red hammer ! - didn't you?
If this is not your answer, you are among 2% of people who have a different, if not abnormal, mind. 98% of the folks would answer a red hammer while doing this exercise. If you do not believe this, pass it around and you'll see.

Well - it wasn't for me - almost but not quite - about sums me up I suppose. I thought of a red pencil.

teeni said...

LOL. I have seen this one before and wonder why MOST people think of a red hammer. I did think of a red hammer but screwdriver was also in the corner of my mind. Makes you wonder.

Mark Wadsworth said...

I've done this test before, and I desperately tried to guess something that wasn't what I remembered as being the the answer, I got as far as guessing red screwdriver ... bugger.

pink spanner for me.

Red trowel! I'm either half mad or I was already distracted by your gardening theme. But the colour link is interesting. Some people see colours all the time when they're reading or looking at numbers.
Or are we simply biological robots and you've stumbled on a programming glitch?!

green knife

merry weather said...

What? - Purple sieve...!

lady thinker said...

I'm glad to see that most of my visitors are also in the 2% - winchester whisperers/merryw must be in the top 1% as they didn't even get the red part of the colour spectrum ...

Henry North London said...

I couldnt think of a tool at all

Where does that put me?

rilly super said...

oh dear, before I answer is that abnormal in a good way or a bad way?

lady thinker said...

Dear, Dear Rilly - surely ANYTHING that separates us from the 'common'herd is a good thing? Therefore either way the answer will be good - 98% you're normal - 2% you're a 'deviant' but less common - that's how I look at it anyway.

Nice to know you're still alive and well enough to get out and about.
