## Brain Test

This just in from the “Quirky Internet Tricks” Department.

Update:  Fun but fails for most!

It’s fun and only takes a moment, so please try and let me know the result in the comments.

Begin the test …..

At the end of this message, you are asked a question.
Don’t stop and think about it.

Just say the first thing that pops into your mind.
This is a fun ‘test’ …

See if you are among the 98% or the 2%. You’ll understand what that means after you finish taking the ‘test…’ 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..

Start:   How much is: 15 + 6

Ha – it’s pretty unimpressive if it does not work! I think the blog post format may be wrong. I tried this by voice and it worked on another person.

3. RichieP says:

Yep, red hammer. Very good 🙂

4. Blue hammer. 😀

5. raftman says:

Green lawnmower, which obviously is not a tool, but it was the first thing that popped into my head. I fail on multiple fronts.

• JoeDuck says:

THANKS to those who tried this. Clearly … it works less than 98% of the time, though it does make sense that “red hammer” would be the most common combo name.

But even if “red” is half and “hammer” is half, you’d only get that combo 1/4th of the time.
