    The following short quiz consists of 4 questions and will tell you whether you are qualified to be a "professional."

    Scroll down for each answer. The questions are NOT that difficult. But don't scroll down UNTIL you have answered the question!

    1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?

    The correct answer is: 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 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. 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. There is a river you must cross but it is inhabited by crocodiles, and you do not have a boat. How do you manage 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 tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.

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

    See I think too logically, I had to go out, buy a new fridge-mine's too short (and since I was shopping anyway I totally forgot about the Giraffe). Then I had to buy a bigger, wider one for the Elephant and that led to more shopping :). I figured the antelope didn't attend because they were the main course and I just didn't cross the river because the only things in life I MUST do are stay white, die and taxes.

    I guess I'm not a professional, more like a manager (making my owns rules and all) hehehe. :LOL:
