I'm part of the 2%

I was sent the following quiz. Follow it through and see if you are in the 98% or the 2%. I am in the 2%.

This won't take long and it is kinda spooky: (I thought it was odd but not spooky)



At the end of this message, 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". 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 mind.


You'll be surprised.



Start:


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























































QUICK! THINK ABOUT A COLOR AND A TOOL!










































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.

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

If you do not believe this, pass it around and you'll see.

Be sure to put in the subject line if you are among the 98% or the
2% and send to everyone.

Green rake.

I said black wrench.

Doing a little research, it seems that this works by basically relaxing your mind doing the repetitive math problems, and then when asked something completely different you will pick the most common tool and colour. Apparently that is a red hammer. Having said that, for me the most common tools I have around are wrenches of one sort of another. As for the colour, who knows why black came to mind.

A green hammer. Probably betrays something about living in Northern Ireland!!
