The following short quiz consists of 4 questions and will tell you whether 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 each 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 tests 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 tests 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 tests 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 it?

Correct Answer: You jump into the river and swim across. Have you not been listening? All the crocodiles are attending the Animal Meeting. This tests 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. Anderson Consulting says this conclusively disproves the theory that most professionals have the brains of a four-year-old.

How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?

It shows more the over-imaginative multi-dimension thinking of adults over the almost autistic simple-minded imagination of children. And how incredibly stupid "professionals" are inventing these kinds of things when they ought to be trying to solve the world's problems. And the fact that I have too much time on my hands answering this when I should be back trying to solve the world's problems. :) xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx SOLUTION: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Why are there many crocodiles at the animal meeting but no elephants because one of their number is in fridge? Giraffes and Elephants in the fridge? We're talking a big fridge here. Maybe made by the same mob who make those Humvees?

I guess we're talking toy animals here, because our fridge is usually too full of milk, yoghurt and stuff to get any real animals in. Attention+SpaceMaking Sense of Complexity and Chaos - Kindness - Awareness - Choice - Trust -

Thanks for reposting, missed it last time and thought it useful. Much better if you put the elephant in the fridge (not a fridge), would really make the point then.
