    A little test to make you feel very stupid

    Okay, I'm not sure if anyone's posted this before but see how you go with this test - be honest with your scores at the end, getting them incorrect is normal. And remember to answer the questions as quick as possible, that's the whole point.

    "Here is a very simple little test comprised of four questions to determine the level of your intellect. Your replies must be spontaneous and immediate, with no deliberating or wasting time... And no cheating!"

    1: You are competing in a race and overtake the runner lying in second place. In which position are you now?





























    Answer: If you answered that you're now coming first then you're completely wrong. You overtook the second runner and took their place, therefore you're coming second.
    For the next question try not to be so dim.

    2: If you overtake the last runner, what position are you now in?





























    Answer: If you answered second-last, once again you're completely wrong. Think about it. How can you over take the person coming last? If you're behind them then they can't be last. The answer is impossible! It would appear that thinking is not one of your strongest points.

    Anyway, here's another to try, don't take any notes or use a calculator, and remember your replies must be instantaneous. Take heart!

    3: Take 1000. Add 40. Add another 1000. Add 30. 1000 again. Plus 20. Plus 1000. And plus 10. What is the total?





























    Answer: 5000? Wrong again! The correct answer is 4100.
    Try again with a good calculator. Today is clearly not your day. Although you should manage to get the last question right...

    4: Marie's father has five daughters: 1. Chacha 2. Cheche 3. Chichi 4. Chocho Question: What is the fifth daughter's name? Think quickly...





























    Answer: Chuchu? WRONG! It's obviously Marie! Read the question properly!

    So, what did you score?

    I got 0. Yay, I'm not a lateral thinker.

    At least you're honest then.

    Nice one Nibbs. I tend to agree that the second one is a little confusing and misleading but then again, I didn't think of the test...

    4 out of 4.

    We get shed loads of courses with trick questions like that in the civil service to test our powers of observation, so I'm used to them.

    Plus I'm incurable smartar$e too!
