The Mind of a Professional

I was emailed this test and got a kick out of it. Lets see how you folks
do.

_____________________________________------

The following short quiz consists of 4 questions and
establishes
whether you are qualified to be a "professional".

Scroll down for the answer.
The questions are not that difficult.

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.

Wrong Answer :

Open the refrigerator, put in the elephant
and close the refrigerator.


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 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.
This tests your memory.


OK, even if you did not answer the first three
questions,
correctly, you still have one more chance to show
your
abilities.


4. There is a river you must cross. But it is
inhabited by
crocodiles.
How do you manage it?

Correct Answer:
You swim across.
All the Crocodiles are attending the Animal Meeting!

This tests whether you learn quickly from your
mistakes.

According to Andersen Consulting Worldwide, around
90% of the professionals they tested got all
questions wrong.

But many preschoolers got several correct answers.
Andersen
Consulting says this conclusively disproves the
theory that most
professionals have the brains of a four year old.
