    Heres a test for you guys and it consists of 4 questions and tells whether you are a qualified professional:



    Q1. How do you put a giraffe into a fridge?


    answer: open the fridge put in the giraffe and shut the door


    (this question tests whether you tend to do simple things in an overly complicated way)





    Q2.How do you put an elephant in a fridge?


    wrong answer: open the fridge put in the elephant and close the door.


    right answer: open the fridge take out the giraffe,put in the elephant and close the door



    (this tests your ability to think through the repercussions of your actions)




    Q3. The lion king is hosting an animal conference.All the animals are attending.Which animal isnt attending



    correct answer: the elephant, the elephant is in the fridge.


    (this tests your memory)



    OK even if you did not answer the 1st three questions correctly you still have one more chance to show your abilities.







    Q4.T here is a river you must cross but it is inhabited by crocodiles how do you cross?




    correct answer:you swim acrosss.All the animals are attending the animal conference.

    (this tests whether you learn from your mistakes.).



    [bold]According to business experts around 90% of the proffessionals they tested got all questions wrong but many pre schoolers got several correct answers.
    The business experts say that this conclusively disproves the theory that most proffessionals have the brains of a 4 year old[/bold]



    If you did manage to get to the end of this drivel you wouldnt believe i found this on a site designated 'stupidity' and yes its another of those useless posts .

    I've seen these questions. You kinda missed out the 'steps' part on the first two questions.

    Question should be more like this:-

    "How do you put a giraffe into a fridge in 2 steps?"

    4 Questions for smart people



    Below are four (4) questions and a bonus question.
    You have to answer them instantly.
    You can't take your time, answer all of them immediately. OK?
    Let's find out just how clever you really are..

    Ready?

    GO!!!


    First Question:
    You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?




    Answer:
    If you answered that you are first, then you are absolutely wrong!
    If you overtake the second person and you take his place, you are now second.


    Try not to screw up in the next question.
    To answer the second question, don't take as much time as you took for the first question.



    Second Question:
    If you overtake the last person, then you are . . . . ?





    Answer:
    If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong again.
    Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST person ?



    You're not very good at this! are you?



    Third Question:
    Very tricky math!
    Note: This must be done in your head only.
    Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Try it.




    Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000. Now add 30. Add another 1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000. Now add 10. What is the total?








    Did you get 5000?
    The correct answer is actually 4100.

    Don't believe it?
    Check with your calculator!
    Today is definitely not your day.
    Maybe you will get the last question right?






    Mary's father has five daughters: 1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini, 4.Nono. What is the name of the fifth daughter?





    Answer: Nunu?
    NO! Of course not.
    Her name is Mary.
    Read the question again.






    Okay, now the bonus round . .




    There is a mute person 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?





    He just has to open his mouth and ask, so simple.


    and how did you do ?
