      IQ Test?

      That one can be interesting. But at what date and time? I can only assume that by 'Wednesday' you mean this coming Wednesday, and that the venue for this IQ test will be here on HP Forums.

    Our continued presence here in hopes of making money wouldn't make us very good candidates for an IQ test, I would think...unless it was for the lower end of the spectrum.  smile

        Your IQ is your Hubber's score X 2.

        For your case it's 97 X 2 = 184

    Well, I’m bored. So I’m going to do the test anyway. Hopefully there will be future readers who will enjoy it.

    Here is the first question. I’ll post the answer in around 10 minutes, along with the second question.

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

    Stop and think about it and decide on your answer before you scroll  down.



















     



    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.

  11. paradigmsearch profile image89
    paradigmsearchposted 5 years ago

    Here is question number two. I'll post the answer in 10 minutes.

    2.  How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?

        oops, I missed that this was answered already. elephant didn't attend but I seem to remember that greek is right, there was something about crocodiles too.  at least in the line of questions my friend kid got from school.

  12. ngureco profile image86
    ngurecoposted 5 years ago

    If putting the giraffe into a refrigerator is just opening the refrigerator, put in  the giraffe, and close the door, then, putting the elephant into a refrigerator is just opening the refrigerator, put in  the elephant, and close the door.

    I have a feeling my answer is totally wrong!


    BTW., today is a Thursday.

    SimeyC scores!!! smile smile smile

    Here is the answer to the 2nd question:


























    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.

    paradigmsearchposted 5 years ago

    Here is the answer to question number three:













    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.

    1. Greek One profile image79
      Greek Oneposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Shouldn't you first let the elephant out of the fridge before you ask the next question>?

      Sadly - due to a rerun of American Idol, the animal meeting finished early so when I went to swim across the river, I was chased by the crocidiles (who returned early) - just as I made it across the other side I ws trampled to death by a very cold Elephant that I had left in the fridge - the Giraffe, who let the Elephant out of the fridge, laughed and pointed at the bloody mass that was once me!

      If the Lion King is hosting an animal conference of which the crocodile is attending, then you can cross the river and you can as well do some swimming.

    Where do you get the giraffe and the elephant from in the first place?

  20. paradigmsearch profile image89
    paradigmsearchposted 5 years ago

    The fourth and final answer is:

















    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 Anderson 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 proves the theory that most professionals do  not have the brains of a  four-year-old.

      To calculate your IQ:

      Add your author score plus 42.

      Multiply that number by the number of answers you got right on this test.

      Thus, yours would be as follows.

      97+42=139

      Zero correct answers means a zero IQ, sorry.

      1 correct answer means your IQ is 139.

      2 correct answers means your IQ is 278.

      3 correct answers means your IQ is 417.

      4 correct answers means your IQ is 556.

      Greek’s IQ is 536.

      Mine is 0.
