Make sure you answer all of these questions in order.
1. How do you put a giraffe in the refrigerator?
The correct answer: Open the refrigerator, put the giraffe in, 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 in the refrigerator?
The correct answer: Did you say, open the refrigerator, put the elephant in, and close the door? Wrong answer.
Correct answer: Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put the elephant in, 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?
The correct answer: The elephant. The elephant is in the refrigerator. You just put him there. This tests your memory.
Okay, even if you didn't 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 don't have a boat. How do you manage it?
The correct answer: You jump into the river and swim across. Haven't you been paying attention? All the crocodiles are attending the animal conference. This tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.
According to Anderson Consulting Worldwide, around 90% of the professionals they tested got all the questions wrong, but many preschoolers got several correct answers. Anderson Consulting says this conclusively disproves the theory that most professionals have the brains of four-year-olds.
