This is really weird.

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"... 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 su! bject 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, including the person that sent it to you.

i would guess the color part of the test works like this: Red is a stimulating color. and since quick thinking math tests make most people anxious and on edge, it would make sense that the color red would pop into their mind first after completing the test (as opposed to blue, for example, which is usually associated with relaxation).

Hmm maybe this tells the political party to which you are most aligned. But I am sure there are some greens here.

Red hammer. Damn, I hate to be normal. But maybe I'm not really, since so far only 4 out of 20 (5 counting me) have admitted to red hammer.

But maybe the 'normals' are less likely to respond?

Cool test, regardless.

When asked to name a color most people will say red.

When asked to name a tool MOST people will say "hammer" because that's the only tool they're familiar with.

The "test" has nothing to do with it.

BTW - Blue Wrench. Like a large number of cyclists I actually use tools and a hammer is not often used unless I'm working on a Huffy.

Yellow Screwdriver.

I admit that I might be swayed in my judgement as there is a yellow screwdriver sitting underneath my screen from when I was making a few adjustment earlier on.

Haha, I said Red Hammer! Sucks to be normal. I like to refer to hammers by their more technical name, Manipulators!
