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 things in an overly complicated way.

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

Wrong answer!

This tests your ability to think through the repercussions of your previous actions.

3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All of the animals attend... except one...

Which animal does not attend?

Correct answer: The Elephant. The elephant is in the refrigerator. You just out him in there.

This tests your memory. Okay even if you did not answer the first 3 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?

According to Anderson Consulting Worldwide, around 90% of the professionals they tested got all of the questions wrong, but many preschoolers got several of the answers correct. Anderson Consulting says this conclusively disproves the theory that most professional have the brains of a 4 year old.
