Brain teaser

Keep scrolling to the end. I'm in the 98%.










Brain teaser for the day.. Don’t ask me how this works….


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.
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








21









3 + 56






59






89 + 2





















91







12 + 53



















65







75 + 26

























101





25 + 52





































77







63 + 32

























95







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




Come on, one more! ....















123 + 5






















128













QUICK! THINK ABOUT
A COLOR 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.

Actually...I thought something else....but one is mounted on the wall beside my monitor just in my peripheral vision. So either I'm in the 2% or maybe I have A.D.D.?

yellow cordless drill

I used to have a red hammer but I don't know where it got off to...... but it didn't have a trigger anyway My favorite hammer is all steel with a leather wrapped handle, it used to belong to my grandfather. I have no idea how old it is.

Well, I aced adding. So what is there about those questions that is supposed to cause you to say a red hammer? When asked the last question my first instinct was to ask myself how this was going to be some sort of set up or trap question - so my mind went blank and all I could utter within about 5 seconds of thinking was pink. I could not even think of a tool.

(Quick!)

Spell flop.

Spell mop.

Spell hop.

What do you do when you get to a green light?

(That sort of thing)

Ecman - somewhere in the forum there is a thread about using the right tool for the job. I think this qualifies.

Mackay is a genius. I also thought a blue skill saw. So at this point, 15% of us think the same.

Magenta ...hammer

does that count as being among the 98%? I just changed my ink cartridges on my printer. The old magenta cartridge was tough to get out.


I think if the two elements are answered separately you get common answer + common answer. Name a color: red ...name a tool um...ok.. hammer.

If the person immediately associates the two questions to think of one answer you get ...name a color "of a tool" and then a different thought process is used.
