Are You Professional ?

The following short quiz consists of 4 questions and tells whether you are truly a "profess-ional". 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.)

2. How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?

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 conference! (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.

Heh. I'm not only unprofessional but a total moron. I got every question wrong and spent way too much time trying to figure out where to get a giraffe to practice on.

I have been hoarding it a while myself, Hoss. I guess I gave in first.

Hale McKay said...

SJ, I never did see the crocodiles. I was trying to procure a new belt and a pair of shoes.

We ain't all that smart, are we? LMAO!
