    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. This is a fun "test"... AND kind of spooky at the same time! Give it a try, then e-mail it around (including back to me) and you'll see how many people you know fall into the same percentage as you. Be sure to put in the subject line if you are among the 98% or the 2%. You'll understand what that means after you finish taking the "test."

    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


























    3 + 56




























    89 + 2


























    12 + 53






























    '

    '




























































    75 + 26








































    25 + 52






























    63 + 32

































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



    Come on, one more! ...



























    123 + 5



























































    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.

    98% of the folks would answer a red hammer while doing this exercise.

    If you do not believe this, pass it around and you'll see.

    Be sure to put in the subject line if you are among the 98% or the 2% and send to everyone, including the person that sent it to you.

    oh, that was good!! thanks!

    my immediate response was "green plumber's tool" and that "plumber's tool" almost did become "hammer".

    i've always known that i was different!!

    and i'm always "over-thinking" things (still not really sure quite what that means nor why "thinking too much" should be considered a handicap?):

    given the almost "anti-intellectualism" of this (american) society, after "all that math" one could imagine that folks might be thinking in terms of "seeing red, wanting to smash something".

    me, i guess i'd like a green-for-go/environment unplugging of the mess!!

    When I did this exercise, I thought of red and hammer as well. Then, I thought that a hammer isn't red...it's more of brown. So, I would have said BROWN HAMMER.

    But, check it...WHY would most of us say HAMMER in the first place?

    We could have said screwdriver, scissors, lawnmower, anything besides hammer. I think it's a childhood thing. :D
