Retiree's test


H/T to Joni!


 Retiree's test

Here is something to have fun with…
This test is to ascertain your mental state now. If you get one right you are doing OK, if you get none right you better go for counseling. (I'll meet you there.)


There are 4 test questions.

 
 
 
Giraffe  Test

  

1.    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.




Elephant  Test


 


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

 


 

 
Lion  King Test

 
 
 
 
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 test 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.

 
Crocodile Test

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

4. There is a river you must cross but it is used by crocodiles, and you do not have a boat.









Correct Answer: 
You jump into the river and swim across.  Haven’t you been listening?  All the crocodiles are attending the Animal Conference.  This test whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.



According to Anderson Consulting Worldwide, around 90% of the Retirees they tested got all questions wrong, but many preschoolers got several correct answers.  Anderson Consulting says this conclusively proves the theory that most retirees do not have the brains of a four-year-old. 

Send this out to frustrate all of your smart friends and even teachers……
