Japanese IQ test for job applicants
Apparently this is an IQ test given to job applicants in Japan in which "Everybody has to cross the river". It's an animated game that's both fun and frustrating.
Click to start the test: Japanese IQ Test
Everything is in Japanese, but follow these instructions below if you prefer English. ;-)
It took me about 20 minutes to solve, my boyfriend about 10 minutes.
Click on link above and then click on the big blue circle to start. To move the people, click on them. To move the raft, click on the pole on the opposite side of the river. You must follow the rules below.
- Only 2 people can be on the raft at the same time
- The Father cannot be left alone with either or both of the daughters without their Mother
- The Mother cannot be left alone with either or both of the sons without their Father
- The thief (the redhead in the striped shirt) cannot stay with any family member if the Policeman is not there -- she gets violent
- Only the adults (the Father, the Mother and the Policeman) know how to operate the raft
