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 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 tests whether you tend to do
simple things in an overly complicated way.

2. How do you put an elephant into a


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.

have one more chance to show your true abilities.

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 World-wide, around 90% of the
professionals they tested got all the
questions wrong, but many
pre-schoolers got several correct answers. Anderson Consulting
says this conclusively disproves the theory that most
professionals have the brains of a four-year-old.
