    This is a test for Intelligent People.

    The following short quiz consists of 4 questions and will tell you if you are qualified to be a professional. Scroll down for each answer. The questions are NOT that difficult. But don't scroll down UNTIL you have answered the question!

    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 tested 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 tested your ability to think through the repercussions of your previous actions.

    3. 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 tested 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. There is a river you must cross but it is used by crocodiles, and you do not have a boat. How do you manage?











































    Correct Answer: You jump into the river and swim across.
    Have you not been listening?
    All the crocodiles are attending the animal conference.

    This tested 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. AndersonConsulting says this conclusively disproves the theory that most professionals have the brains of a four-year-old.
