Such a Tool
Courtini sent a bunch of the girls at work
this little quiz.
* * *
Do not go to the next calculation
before you have finished the previous one.
You do not need to write or remember the answers,
just do it using your mind.
Here we go ...
How much is:
15 + 6
3 + 56
89 + 2
75 + 26
I know! Calculations are hard work, but it's nearly over.
Come on, one more:
1233 + 5
THINK ABOUT A TOOL AND A COLOUR!
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 folks answer a red hammer while doing this exercise.
* * *
Is it any surprise that I'm in the 2%?
I'm definitely different.
I thought of a green screwdriver.
Of course, since I'm colour-blind,
it could be blue.
Courtini thought of a blue saw.
(or maybe it was green.)
At one point, she pipes up:
"Sarah thought of a red hoe!"
"That's cuz she IS a red hoe!"
