    SHORT AND SWEET......

    Test your IQ with the question below:

    There is a mute who wants to buy a toothbrush.
    By imitating the action of brushing one's teeth he successfully expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done.

    Now if there is a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of sunglasses, how should he express himself?

    Think about it first before scrolling down for the answer...
















































    He just has to open his mouth and ask,
    so simple.
    If you got this wrong please -
    do not pass go,
    do not breed,
    just go dig a hole and hide.

    blind people get sunglasses all the time because some times, there eyes look very well strange. They may be white, have extremly visible cateracts, ect. Why do you think you always see people with blind canes also have sun glasses.

    I heard that places give out these kinds of test to see if you can "think out of the box"...I heard microsoft and other places...but yeah, most 1st graders can pass these test, while older people don't...

    Society conditioning and conditioned response... that's what affects most of it.

    I'll tell you this- the Microsoft job interview is HELL.

    They wear sunglasses so no body pulls the old Three Stooges Dual-Action Eye poke.


    I'm sure blind doesn't affect the fact that that HURTS LIKE HELL! :p
