I received this in email. It is slightly old, so you may have seen it before:


Short IQ Test

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

(A professional what, you ask)

Scroll down for each answer. The questions are NOT that difficult.

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?

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 true abilities.


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

Correct Answer: You swim across. 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. :D

LOL! My mom told me that (not the 90% though!) a long time ago. I think my sister (who is in child care) should ask these questions some day to her kids and see how many get it right.:D
