    I am one of the 2%, how about you?

    Concentrate and see it through to the end, it only takes about 30 secs.

    And don't think hard about the word question at the end, just the first thing that comes into your head.


    At the end of this message, you are asked a question.
    Answer it immediately. Don't stop and think about it.
    Just say the first thing that pops into your mind.
    This is a fun "test"... AND kind of spooky at the same time! Give it a try, and you'll see how many people you know fall into the same percentage as you. You'll understand what that means after you finish taking the test".
    Now... just follow the instructions as quickly as possible.
    Do not go to the next calculation before you have finished the previous one..
    You do not ever need to write or remember the answers, just do it using your mind.

    You just thought about a red hammer! , didn't you?

    If this is not your answer, you are among 2% of people who have a different, if not abnormal, mind.
    98% of the folks would answer a red hammer while doing this exercise.
    If you do not believe this, pass it around and you'll see.
    Be sure to put in the subject line if you are among the 98% or the 2% and send to everyone, including the person that sent it to you.

    Orange Hammer - I did all the sums telling myself I wasn't go to conform and think of a carrot, and decided I was gonna say parsnip! Then of course realised the question had changed since I heard this many moons ago. Decided resistance was futile and went for orange! Hammer was genuine - I am sure I would probably have said red if I had done it properly!

    Blue hammer, so they were half-right.

    I doubt the 98/2 split though - I know that a lot of people will think of red when asked for a colour (and a carrot when asked for a vegetable), but not in those proportions, especially with a tool as well.
