    Giraffe Test






    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.











    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 used 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 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 disproves the theory that most professionals have the brains of a four-year-old.

    I have seen nary a fridge that can hold an elephant in my entire life, unless its like a freezer room, but you just said a fridge. I heard this one before and I still can argue against it not making any sense.

    If its an argument that really even matters...

    still its a funny thing, so I laugh HA, HA, HA. good stuff.

    I agree! They should specify the size of this refrigerator...if it can fit an elephant why cant it fit a giraffe as well at the same time.....also even if Ive heard it before I answered the last part incorrectly for once more...

    Not to mention the time gap it would take for animals to travel to the meeting, and where the meeting is.

    My question is, who is sadistic enough to put these animals into a fridge and secondly why would you do so?

    Also you usually keep much smaller animals like pigs in a Freezer room, so wouldn't it be more logical to use such a room?

    I put forth that the person formulating the questions is actually an idiot.

    It just means you're not as smart as a 4 year old ;)

    I kinda just read everything in one go, so I didn't attempt to answer them. I'd have probably got the first 2 wrong though.

    One doesn't usually ponder on such topics. Although my first answer in my mind went something like "you could fold it up" lol

    If I put an animal in my fridge, its usually dead and I plan to eat it. So I could argue I thought the animals were pre-killed. Or something.
