    I hate this test as I missed all the questions. But it was fun.

    The following short quiz consists of 4 questions and will tell you

    whether you are qualified to be a "professional." (in any field)

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







    1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?





















    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?





















    Did you say, "Open the refrigerator, put in the elephant, and close the
    refrigerator? " (Wrong Answer) 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. The King of the Forest 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. 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 inhabited by 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.

    Heard that in a business comm class last week

    supposed to see how well you think outside the box

    Pre-schoolers do better because they don't overthink the questions


    1/4 the first time I heard it

    Well, this also goes to show how much common sense america really has....


    1. you CANNOT fit a giraffe into a refridgerator, unless said giraffe is shot, killed and field dressed. The fridge would have to be at LEAST a resturaunt sized one.

    2. Same goes for the Elephant.

    3. assuming animals can conference......the chopped up giraffe and chopped up elephant do not attend.

    4. This question gives no time/date reference, and the story line does not infer to it either. I walk upstream to where there are NO crocodiles and cross at the river's narrowest point. The last question does not say what day/time it is.


    It's called common sense.

    this is a stupid fucking way to determine whether or not professionals can "think outside the box"

    if some dickwad came into my office for an impromptu "pep talk" .... I would grill their fucking ass to no end about the logistics of these questions
