#1206  A Test

Yesterday I told you about Pink and Blue Cows.

If you wouldn't have fared any better than I did with the Pink 
and Blue Cows, maybe you will do better with today's test. 

Let's see if you have what it takes.

The following short quiz consists of 4 questions and tells 
whether you are qualified to be a "professional".

Scroll down for each answer.

The questions are not that difficult.

1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?

The correct answer is: 
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.

2. 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.

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

Correct Answer: The Elephant. 
The Elephant is in the refrigerator.

This tests your memory.

OK, even if you did not answer the first three questions 
correctly, you still have one more chance to show your 

4. There is a river you must cross. But it is inhabited by 
crocodiles. How do you manage it?

Correct Answer: You swim across. All the Crocodiles are 
attending the Animal Meeting.

This tests whether you learn from your mistakes.

According to Andersen Consulting Worldwide, around 90% of the 
professionals they tested got all questions wrong. But many 
pre-schoolers got several correct answers.

Andersen Consulting says this conclusively disproves the theory 
that most professionals have the brains of a four year old.
