The previous fun test reminded me of this one which I've seen on a kids' tv programme recently - and this one definitely works! I just checked it on the internet to get the numbers right:

- Think of any number from 1 to 10.

- When you have it, multiply it by 9.

- If it's a two-digit number, add them together.

- Now, subtract 5 from that number.

- Think of the letter in the alphabet that corresponds with the number ("1" is "A," "2" is "B," "3" is "C," and so on).

- Think of a country that starts with the letter.

- Think about the second letter in that country's name.

- Think of an animal who's name begins with that letter.

- Finally, think of the animal's color.

(scroll down)

It's grey, right?

 What colour is an egret? White, I think May 4, 2007

I guess I was supposed to think of an elephant

Very good riddle, Nesrin, I'd forgotten about it.

 It works in Dutch as well! May 4, 2007

I gave all the answers in Dutch and my animal was an "ezel" (donkey). Most "ezels" happen to be grey! Did anybody else get a grey animal in another language?

 need arbitrary help! :) May 5, 2007

in German it worked perfectly with "Elefant", then did it in Macedonian, and would you agree the hedgehog is grey, too?

 Tested but not sure May 5, 2007

In Turkish (let's check together):

- Think of any number from 1 to 10. (6)

- When you have it, multiply it by 9. (54)

- If it's a two-digit number, add them together. (9)

- Now, subtract 5 from that number. (4)

- Think of the letter in the alphabet that corresponds with the number ("1" is "A," "2" is "B," "3" is "C," and so on) (Ç)

- Think of a country that starts with the letter. (ÇİN - China)

- Think about the second letter in that country's name. (İ)

- Think of an animal who's name begins with that letter. (İNEK - cow)

- Finally, think of the animal's color. (confused

 Yes, in Italian it worked! May 5, 2007

I also thought of Danimarca and then asino (donkey). It's grey

 Is a fish grey? May 5, 2007

In Polish I ended up with "R" and "ryba" (fish). In Baltic fish are silver (grey?), but there are colourful fish elsewhere. So I'm not sure it worked

 Well, you ARE supposed to solve it in English! May 5, 2007

But it's interesting to see that some other languages lead to the same result!

 Denmark for everyone May 5, 2007

I did the test in Romanian and ended up with a brown hedgehog. It's not that strange that it's Denmark for everyone, it's just basic math. If you multiply any one-digit number by nine and add the two digits of the result, the sum is always nine. By subtracting five, you end up with a country beginning with D. Now, it seems that Denmark is the country that everyone thinks about. I've checked and there are only four countries starting with D (in Romanian, at least): Denmark, Diego Garcia, Djibouti and Dominica. Now, in English there's also Dominican Republic.
So much for psychology.
