The Giraffe Test (this is hilarious)
The giraffe test ...

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?


Did you say, Open the refrigerator, put in the elephant, and close the refrigerator?

Wrong Answer.






















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 previous 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. You just put him in there. This tests your memory. Okay, even if you did not 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 do not have a boat. How do you manage it?


























Correct Answer: You jump into the river and swim across. Have you not been listening? All the crocodiles are attending the Animal Meeting. This tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.

According to Anderson Consulting Worldwide, around 90% of the professionals they tested got all questions wrong, but many preschoolers got several correct answers. Anderson Consulting says this conclusively disproves the theory that most professionals have the brains of a four-year-old.


If you have any other funny things like this, i want to see them. i love these.

try it and tell me what results you got. that would be interesting. i tried this with a number of my friends. everyone got all the questions wrong but 1. he got 3/4. not sure what that means. either he is really smart or extremely stupid. he does have an IQ that is more than 135. maybe that has something to do with the results.

Results from class # 1..... 12 children

question one : one child answered correctly... but added that you must take the shelves out first so the giraffe would fit.

question two: one answered correctly adding that you take the water out of the elephant's nose first so he doesn't get water all over the fridge

question three: two children answered correctly

question four: none correct, but two answered get the elelphant out of the fridge and ride him across the river.


Will post results of class number two tonight

were the questions answered correctly answered by the same child or 3 different children? this is interesting. i thought that the results would be higher. maybe we just need more data.
