I'm in the 2%

At the end of this post, you are asked a question.
Answer it immediately.

Don't stop and think about it.

Just say the first thing that pops into your mind.

This is a fun "test"... AND kind of spooky at the same time! Give it a try, then
e-mail it around (including back to me) and you'll see how many people you know
fall into the same percentage as you. Be sure to put in the subject line if you
are among the 98% or the 2%. You'll understand what that means after you finish
taking the "test."

Now - just follow the instructions as quickly as possible.

Do not go to the next calculation before you have finished the previous one.

You do not ever need to write or remember the answers, just do it using your

You'll be surprised.


How much is:
15 + 6

3 + 56

89 + 2

12 + 53

75 + 26

25 + 52

63 + 32

I know! Calculations are hard work, but it's! nearly over..

Come on, one more! ..

123 + 5


Scroll further to the bottom....

A bit more...

You just thought about a red hammer , didn't you?

If this is not your answer, you are among 2% of people who have a different, if
not abnormal, mind. (** I must be slightly abnormal. I thought of an orange hammer. Sei thought of a red hammer.)

98% of the folks would answer a red hammer while doing this exercise.

I've seen this before, so I couldn't honestly play. But when I did it before, I thought of a purple screwdriver. So, I don't fit in either group. W'sup w/that?! I'm in a league of my own! :-)

The color I thought of was blue, and the tool I thought of was my step-sister.
