Those things are stupid. You could do it with anything, or just flat out ask someone to name a tool and a color.

Evman gave me this test about two years ago in our cafeteria. I said red hammer the first time too. I had a feeling that the tool and a color thing would be at the bottom, but i got distracted by the math and when i suddenly saw it, I thought of hammer green (in that order).

Yes, but only about 20% of the time.

Anyway, I thought Red Spanner. (wrench to you Americans)

In case anyone doesn't understand what this is all about, the maths are to make you use one side of your brain (logic and problem solving side). The sudden shift to asking for a tool and a colour is to force you to use the creative side of your brain. What you answer says something about you as a creative personality. I'll let you decide what it means if you fall into the 98%, or if you're part of the 2%.

red screwdriver, like DigiSm.

i think the abnormal mind thing is crap. But I can see red hammer being popular. Really, you just do something like this, and write down what people picked most.

I think red is just a color associated with tools, so that's expected.



Anyways, I got another one.

















5*3

































6*2































7*6
























NOW ONE MORE






















2*1



















NOW NAME A PLANT THAT ISN'T A FLOWER, AND A COLOR!!!!
















DID YOU SAY A GREEN TREE!?!?! HOLY CRAP!?!?!?



So yeah. Fun.

I might expect a green fern or red oak from some of you freaks in the 2% category. wink


Oh, yeah, I edited it. I didn't intend for flowers to be in the mix. Then it just goes crazy.

CRAZY!

I ended on "Red Wrench". I wonder if this was written by people who consider themselves normal. Psycologically speaking, Normal can be weird to those who consider weird, normal. Therefore, normal = weird. Therefore abnormal = normal = weird. So who is really "abnormal" and who is "normal"? smile

HAHAHA! How funny is that? I chose a flower. The thing that you're absolutely not supposed to choose. HA!

I think if it just said plant and a color, then more people would say green flower (any type) than green tree.
