I did this...did you........?

Amazing test....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 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 TOOL AND A COLOR!













































Scroll further to the bottom...





























































A bit more...























You have just thought about a red hammer, haven't you????







If this is not the case, 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.

Well now I have it confirmed. I'm abnormal.

Well, I guess it's official now, I am a freak on the 2% fringe.

I thought of a blue hammer, ironically since I have a red Stanley in the tool chest! Dh does have a blue handled one though..

Oddly, I thought of an orange hammer too.
Then a red screwdriver, but that is just because DS came and wacked me withg a red robertson while I was scrolling. Ow. I should clean my house.

Red hammer here

I once read that that's how tourists are easily ripped off in "psychic" places like India, by asking htem to think of a flower and then the "psychic" "seeing" that they're thinking about a red rose.

In linguistics this is called semantic prototypes ~ "hammer" being a very prototypical or "primary" tool etc.

Well...way the hell off...

Yellow drill.


Not only not red...but a power tool no less.


I am a weirdo.

:LOL

Hee hee! I'm finally not a weirdo.

I did think of a red hammer. But I would think of red when asked to think of a color, because it's my favorite.
post #19 of 111
oh no.

Does this mean I'm normal?

Red hammer here! HOW?? How does that work? Hammer I can maybe understand - it's such a common tool. But with color choices, I never pick red.
