This simple test is to ascertain your current mental state. If you get one right you are doing OK. If you get zero right you better go for counseling (I’ll meet you there).
There are just four test questions. Please scroll to the end. Don’t miss any.
1. Giraffe Test
How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?
Stop and think about it and decide on your answer before you scroll down.
The correct answer: 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. Elephant Test
How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?
Did you say, 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 previous actions.
3. Lion King Test
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. Crocodile Test
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. Haven’t you
been listening? All the crocodiles are attending the animal conference.
RESULTS – This test tells whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.
According to Anderson Consulting, worldwide, around 90% of grandparents they tested got all questions wrong, but many preschoolers got several correct answers. Anderson Consulting says this conclusively proves the theory that most grandparents do not have the brains of a four-year-old.
Now, go have fun and share this fun game with your four-year old grandkids!
