Did you say, Open the refrigerator, put in the elephant, and close the refrigerator?
Wrong Answer.
Correct Answer:  Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in the elephant and close the door. This tested your ability to think  through the repercussions of your previous actions.

Correct Answer: The Elephant. The elephant is in the refrigerator.  You just put him in there!

This tested your memory. Okay, even if you did not answer the first three questions correctly, you still have one more chance to show your true abilities.

4. There is a river you must cross but it is used by many many crocodiles, and you do not have a boat. How do you get across it?

Correct Answer: You jump into the river and swim across. Have you not been listening?  All the crocodiles are attending the Animal Meeting!

This tested whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.

According to Anderson Consulting World-wide, around 90% of the management professionals they tested got all questions wrong, but many pre-schoolers got several correct answers.  Anderson Consulting says this conclusively disproves the theory that most professionals have the brains of a four-year-old.
