Are You Smarter Than a Four Year Old?

This test is to ascertain your mental state now. If you get one right you are doing OK.  If you get none right you’d better go for counseling. (I’ll meet you  there.)
Before you check the answers, stop and think about it and decide on your answer.
There are four test questions:
Giraffe  Test
1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?
Elephant Test
2.   How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?
Lion King Test
3. The Lion King is hosting an Animal Conference.  All the animals attend … except one.
Which animal does not attend?
Crocodile Test
4. There is a river you must cross but it is used by crocodiles, and you do not have a boat. How do you manage to cross the river?
 Answers after the break…










Quiz Answers
 1. Giraffe  Test
How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?
Correct Answer: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.   Elephant Test
How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?
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 tests your ability to think through the repercussions of your previous actions.

3. Lion King Test
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.  You just put him in there.  This tests 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. Crocodile Test 
There is a river you must cross but it is used by crocodiles, and you do not have a boat. How do you manage to cross the river?
Correct  Answer: 
You jump into the river and swim across.  Haven’t you been listening?   All the crocodiles are attending the Animal Conference.  
This tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.

Around 90% of the Retirees they tested got all questions wrong, but many preschoolers got several correct answers.

This conclusively proves the theory that most Retirees do not have the brains of a four-year-old.
