    2% or 98% ?

    I appologize in advance for the length of this "Test". If the moderators decide we need to delete, I understand ...

    Normally I would not post something like this message, but a friend sent this to me and and it really was interesting ...

    So - I'm <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">98%</span hide> <img src=/S/frown.gif border=0 alt=frown width=15 height=15> or <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/question.gif border=0 alt=question width=15 height=15> - I do not know ...
    Try this TEST and decide where you fit in ...

    <big> <big> <big> 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 post your answer and you'll see how many people fall into the same percentage as you. Be sure to state 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 <big> <font color=red>red hammer! </font color=red> </big>, 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 post if you are among the 98% or the 2% !</big> </big> </big>

    Stanley silver hammer... its old, and i've been working on my house way too much this past month.

    a friend of mine wrote this to me after taking the test:
    <hr>The reason why we think of the color red when we do math is primarily because of all the red ink we saw on our math homework assignment since grade school. The ones that did not think of the color red means that they were good in math.<hr>

    <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15> for the quote. I passed it to the friend who originally provided me with this "Test".

    What I really find interesting, is although many postings have different colors, the tool is hammer .... <img src=/S/hmmn.gif border=0 alt=hmmn width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29> <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    BTB-I was actually pretty good in math - but saw <font color=red>RED</font color=red> <img src=/S/doh.gif border=0 alt=doh width=15 height=15>

    Re: 2% or 98% ?

    At this time, I thought I would share some of the outcome results based on the original E-Mail I received. Of the "INFORMAL" responses (89 responded so far):
    <UL><LI> 38 said Red Hammer
    <LI> 84 said HAMMER as tool !!!
    <LI> Other Tools: "Manly Black" Bludgeon, Sledge Hammer, Knife (Ms Bobbit I presume <img src=/S/innocent.gif border=0 alt=innocent width=20 height=20>), Screwdriver and Drill.
    <LI> Some of the colors include Orange, Blue, Aqua, Silver, Pink (Close Match ?!?!?), Black, "Manly Black", Rust, and Yellow.[/list]
