98% (this is unbelievable...try this test and see if you come up with the same answer

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 e-mail it around (including back to me) and you'll see how many people you know fall into the same percentage as you. Be sure to put in the subject line 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



Scroll further to the bottom....

A bit more...

You just thought about a
red hammer, 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 put in the subject line if you are among the 98% or the 2% and send
to everyone, including the person that sent it to you .

oh, no, I'm abnormal.

Well, it's not the first time I've been accused of that.

I thought of black (I think your background influenced by quick decision) and a sewing machine.

Red hammer, indeed.

black file. must be influenced by your spooooky background.

Jeez....abnormal. I thought of a green garden hoe...I did quickly change the color to red in my mind though....but it wasn't the first color. Weird.

Hi Tristan,Meg & Katiedid!

My guess is that perhaps I should have put it on a white background and left the original text which was blue which was exactly how it was sent to me via email. Everyone that send the quiz to me including myself all thought of a red hammer. We could not figure it out. However, it may appear that changing the background and/or text color may have something to do with it? Otherwise, you 3 are exceptional! Maybe that's why I'm so fascinated with your blogs. Thanks for playing.

My husband and I both, (I read it on the computer but read it to him, so I don't think the background changed anything) said, blue hammer. What does that mean? Not only are we abnormal but we are exactly the same abnormal? MB

Hi Julio,
This was fun and I did (final answer) say "red hammer." But first I thought "red," and after a split second "no blue, no red," and decided to go with my first response.

Thanks for sharing this. Whew, I'm normal! Well ... semi-normal I suppose. ;)

Hope you and yours have a great Halloween!

Dang! Green shovel here!

Jan said...

Red yes, hammer no (spanner)- makes me not quite so abnormal I assume.
That was hard work - maths is not my forte - but thanks for the game !

Bonnie said...

Hi! I just found your blog via Christian's at Maison21! Oh no... I am honestly in the 2% category! I thought of a yellow shovel. What's it all mean? I got the math right... which is the real shocker! Happy Halloween!!!

Red Hammer for me but my hubby Ron always says it is AbbyNormal anyway and he should know, he is a Mental Health Professional.
