The refrigerator test

Post by omegaclass on Sun Aug 31, 2008 2:53 am

hi gentlemen

"to take this test correctly you must read the question, do not look at the answer, after you have your answer then look at the correct answer on the test then go to the nest question. do not read the answer till you answered the question, then proceed to the next question. important if you want test your common sense!"

The refrigerator test You will be asked four questions and you must rely on your common sense to answer them correctly.
According to Andersen consulting worldwide, around 90% of the professionals they tested got all of the questions wrong. But many pre-school children got several correct answers. Andersen consulting says this conclusively disproves the theory that most professionals have the brains of a four year old.

Q1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator

Correct 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.

Q2. How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator

Wrong Answer:
Open the refrigerator, put in the elephant and close the refrigerator.

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 actions.

Q3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All the animals attend, except one. Which animal does not attend

Correct Answer:
The elephant, since it is still in the refrigerator.

This tests your memory.

Even if you did not answer the first three questions correctly, you still have one more chance to show your abilities.

Q4. There is a river you must cross, but it is inhabited by crocodiles. How do you manage it

Correct Answer:
You swim across. All of the crocodiles are attending the meeting!
This tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.

(i found this somewhere on the net some time ago and only got one right the last one. at leas there is hope for me lol)
