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, then e-mail it around and you'll see how many people you know fall into the same percentage as you. Be sure to put in the subject line 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





















3 + 56



























89 + 2

























12 + 53





































75 + 26




































25 + 52





























63 + 32
































I know! Calculations are h hard work, but it's! nearly over..


Come on, one more! ...


























123 + 5























































QUICK! THINK ABOUT A COLOUR AND A TOOL!










































Scroll further to the bottom....












































A bit more...




















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.

Be sure to put in the subject line if you are among the 98% or the 2% and send to everyone, including the person that sent it to you.

What's wrong with a screwdriver?

My husband's foremost tool is a grey staple gun. (He's an upholsterer).

Red Screwdriver May 4, 2007

Thought of a red screwdriver.
To judge by the other answers, I guess translators don't like to think like the crowd.
It was fun.
Thanks,
Arturo

No, surely not! It probably means that you are a lateral thinker or something like that!
