Common Sense Test That 90% of People Fail

Easy but fun personality test. It looks like common sense isn’t so common because according to research, 90% of adults get these questions wrong. Yet kids do just fine. That’s because grown-ups overcomplicate things while children use their common sense and don't overthink. So follow their lead and let's start! 1. Which word would you use if you needed to describe a person who doesn't have all their fingers on one hand? 2. If a plane crashes right on the border between Canada and the United States, where should they bury the survivors? 3. Imagine that you’ve just entered a pitch black room. There’s an oil lamp, a newspaper, and some kindling wood inside the room, but you have only one match. You have to make a tough choice: what will you light first? 4. Mrs. Browny, despite her name, loves the color pink. Her bungalow is decorated entirely in the bubblegum color: pink carpet, furniture, curtains, even the walls are pink. So what color do you imagine the stairs are? 5. 5. One day a man got caught in the pouring rain. Unfortunately, he had no umbrella or hat or anything else he could use to stay dry. Yet not a single hair on his head got wet. How so? 6. How can it be that every single person in a plane crash died, but two people survived? 7. Time for a tricky one so be very attentive: what do you sleep on, sit on, and brush your teeth with? 8. In some months there are 31 days, in others there are 30. But how many months have 28 days? 9. A man dressed in all black from head to toe was walking in the middle of the road. All of a sudden, a huge black car with its headlights off came around the corner and screeched to a halt not to hit him. How on Earth did the driver of the car see the man in black? 10. There were three highly important rooms in the house of an extremely important man. One room was filled with valuable secret documents, the second one was full of money, and in the third room, the man kept expensive jewelry. But one day an arsonist set the house on fire and all the highly important rooms burst into flames. Which of the rooms did the police start to extinguish the fire first and foremost? 11. What’s the biggest problem with snow boots? 12. How do you put a giraffe in a refrigerator? 13. Now, how do you put an elephant in a fridge? 14. Noah builds one more ark and invites all the world’s animals to join him. Every single animal gets onboard, except for one. What animal doesn't board the ark? 15. You’re hiking in the wilderness when you come upon a river. You have to cross it, but you know that crocodiles dwell in rivers there. How can you reach the opposite side without becoming a crocodile’s dinner?

What You See First Reveals Unexpected Truth About You

Optical illusions are tricky, to say the least. We are used to believing what we see because we are sure that nobody can trick our eyes. But some pictures can make us see things that aren’t there. It’s because we don’t see with our eyes, we see with our brain. And the brain can easily be tricked. You might see one thing in the image, yet someone else will try to convince you that it’s another. And that’s exactly why optical illusions can be like a personality test. The test is pretty simple. As soon as you see the image, make note of what popped out at you first. Depending on what you saw immediately, you’ll get a description of some attribute to your personality. Here we go! TIMESTAMPS: Optical illusion #1 1:14 Optical illusion #2 1:54 Optical illusion #3 2:45 Optical illusion #4 3:43 Optical illusion #5 4:32 Optical illusion #6 5:47 Optical illusion #7 6:36 Optical illusion #8 7:34 Optical illusion #9 8:17 Optical illusion #10 9:13 #opticalillusion #personalitytest Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ Mooney Face Picture. An example of the face photographs used by the cognitive psychologist Craig Mooney: By Adapted from Le Cerveau à tous les niveaux, http://www.lecerveau.mcgill.ca/flash/a/a_02/a_02_p/a_02_p_vis/a_02_p_vis.html, CC BY-SA 3.0 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=1916754 Animation is created by Bright Side. SUMMARY: - #1 Did you see a tree first thing off the bat? If so, you tend to pay a bit too much attention to details. On the bright side, you’re really great at reading other people’s moods. - #2 If you can’t help but see a duck, then you’re probably right-brained, meaning you're more of an artistic and creative type. You have a well-developed intuition and a rich imagination. - #3 If it was a candlestick that drew your attention first, you’re great at seeing the big picture and don’t get lost in all the details. Your critical thinking skills are also pretty sharp. - #4 Do you immediately see a young woman in a fancy hat and fur coat looking away from the viewer? Then you have a joyful and optimistic personality. You can be a little too impulsive, though, living your best life in the moment and all… - #5 Did you see a car in this picture? If so, you value your freedom. You prefer to move at your own speed and have things go according to your own plan. Your ability to notice finite details fascinates many. - #6 If you immediately saw a beautiful young woman, then the right hemisphere of your brain is developed better than the left one. Again, this means that you’re a creative and artistic person. - #7 Is that big crocodile jumping out at you? Then you’re probably a pretty practical individual. Cautious and careful, you prefer to avoid any risk-taking. From time to time, you concentrate more on the negative aspects of life instead of its bright sides. - #8 Most people notice a dog's tail and hind leg in this picture. If you're one of them, you always try to look for original decisions to your problems. You use not only your logical thinking but also a creative approach. - #9 For those who see two crocodiles touching noses, this means that you always try to be in control of every situation in your life. You'd rather be in charge than obey orders. - #10 If the first thing you saw in this picture was a dark-haired woman sitting on the ground, then you have sharp observational skills and an eye for detail. Also, you're a reserved and introverted person.

16 FAMOUS LOGOS WITH A HIDDEN MEANING (That We Never Even Noticed)

How to design a successful logo? How to build a famous brand for your business? Some of the most well-known logos in the world were purposefully designed to indicate something much more than simple beauty. In fact, it seems that in some cases, every line, curve, and color has meaning behind it. Adidas, Apple, BMW, Coca-Cola, Toyota… We see these famous brands everywhere but never consider what their logos exactly mean. Curious to know the secret? Watch the 16 famous logos with a hidden meaning you've never noticed. #logomeaning #logosecret # Hyundai 0:33 The letter ’Н’ symbolizes two people – a client and a representative of the company – shaking hands. Adidas 0:52 The current logo is three stripes at an angle which together form a triangle. This symbolizes a mountain, which in turn represents the challenges that all sportsmen have to overcome day after day. Apple 1:21 Rob Janoff, the designer who came up with the world-famous Apple company logo, explained his idea in one of his interviews. He bought a bag of apples, placed them in a bowl, and spent time drawing them for a week, trying to break the image down into something simple. Vaio 1:58 The first two letters of the Vaio logo symbolize an analogue wave. The last two are similar to the numbers 1 and 0 — that is, symbols of a digital signal. Amazon 2:14 The orange arrow is similar to a smile because the company wants its customers to be satisfied. The arrow is also stretched between the letters ’A’ and ’Z’, in a hint that the company sells absolutely every product you can imagine. Baskin Robbins 2:40 The pink-colored parts of the "BR" section make up the number 31, which is how many ice cream flavors Baskin Robbins used to famously sell. Toyota 2:56 The logo represents a stylized image of a needle eye with a thread passing through it. This is a hint at the company’s past – they used to produce weaving machines. Continental 3:28 Continental, a famous car tire producer, has a logo in which the first two letters depict a car wheel. Formula 1 3:41 If you look carefully at the white space between the letter ’F’ and the red stripes, you can see the number 1. Pinterest 3:59 On Pinterest, people collect images they like from across the Internet and ’pin’ them to their online boards. That’s why the image of a pin is hidden in the letter P. Beats 4:17 Beats, an audio equipment producer based in the USA, uses a logo in which the letter ’B’ looks like headphones on a person’s head. Toblerone 4:32 The famous chocolate company based in Bern, Switzerland, has a silhouette of a bear in its logo. That's because Bern is sometimes called a city of bears. BMW 4:55 The logo is simply a part of the Bavarian flag, the area of Germany where the company originated. LG 5:18 The logo is a stylized image of a person’s face. According to the company, this represents its aspiration to have human relations with their customers. Evernote 5:34 The corner of the elephant’s ear is folded over in a similar way how people fold the corner of a page to make notes. Coca-Cola 5:57 In the space between the letters ’O’ and ’L’, you can see the Danish flag. It’s purely a coincidence. Nevertheless, Coca-Cola has used this as part of its marketing campaigns in the Scandinavian country. If you’ve enjoyed this video, hit that thumbs up button!

Judge Judy Best Cases Episodes 2019 - 49

You are way more intelligent than you realize! Here's a list of signs that actually indicate a super bright mind. They are all scientifically proved, so if you feel like a few of them are true for you, you have every reason to call yourself a genius!

TIMESTAMPS
You realize how much you don’t know 0:48
You wear the same clothes every day 2:00
You can feel what others are thinking 3:01
You can perfectly control yourself 3:50
Your eyes are blue 4:53
You are a chocolate lover 5:54
When you’re upset, you know what’s bothering you 6:56
You talk to yourself 7:47
You can’t stand any background noise 8:35
Your handwriting is messy 9:21

SUMMARY
- Justin Kruger and David Dunning worked with a group of Cornell University undergrads and published the results of their research in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology in 1999. They asked students to predict their scores after being tested in Humor, Logical reasoning and English Grammar. Those who were 100% sure they did outstandingly well ended up with worse results than those who were more critical of themselves.
- Psychologist Oliver Burkeman has done some serious research on the lifestyle of the brightest minds in the world. He concluded that smart people tend to save up their mental abilities for more important things. Unless those smart people are fashion designers or Lady Gaga, of course.
- Empathy is a sign of exceptional mental intelligence. If you are emotionally intelligent, you love meeting new people and learning new things. According to psychologist and author of Focus: The Hidden Drivers of Excellence Daniel Goleman, people who care a lot about others and can feel them well, generally, succeed in life.
- The ability to control instincts is what we know distinguishes humans from animals. Genius people went even further: they manage to overcome and control any impulses they have. If you can plan and achieve goals without being distracted by emotions you are more intelligent than you might imagine.
- Professor emeritus of the University of Louisville Joanne Rowe has concluded light-eyed humans, and even animals are way better at activities requiring self-pacing than the dark-eyed creatures. The fact that you are better at self-paced activities means that you like paying attention to every detail.
- M.D. Franz H. Messerli, who is most likely a chocolate lover himself, published the results of his study in The New England Journal of Medicine. He tried to link genius (Noble prize winner kind of genius) per ten million people with the amount of chocolate consumed in certain countries. And he found it.
- Genius people don’t stick to the past. And, they don’t blame everyone and everything around for their sadness. Psychologist Daniel Goleman explains a real genius does not only address problems but also recognizes emotions when he feels them, and not ignores them.
- Psychologists Daniel Swigley and Gary Lupyan conducted a whole study on it. The good self-talk, according to them, helps us sort the important thoughts from useless stuff going through our minds.
- A study conducted at the Northwestern University has stated that a genius hates any kind of background noise because it prevents him from concentrating on important issues.
- Next time someone criticizes your handwriting, simply nod, say “I am sorry you don’t get it” and triumph on the inside. Messy writing is one of the signs of a genius!

Did you recognize any of these signs in yourself, or maybe you are now positive your best friend is a genius? Feel free to share it in the comments section.
