    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 need to
    write or remember the answers, just do it using your mind. You'll be surprised.

    You have just thought about a red hammer, haven't you????

    If this is not the case, 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 it to your friends.




    Kinda bugged out... i thought of a red screw driver, so i don't know if i'm actually part of that 2% or not... i've done similar things like this and have actually chosen what they said i did... Strange stuff...

    karma,
    nice choice!:)


    Carbon, the color part is just my favorite color. It seems that most people would respond with their favorite color followed by what they subconsciously identify the word "tool" with the most.

    Carbon,
    it's word association while you are focused on something else to keep you off-balance and not really give you time to dwell on the question. You are thinking about numbers, houses, history, whatever. Then you are asked a question about a tool. Tool? Hammer. Most common answer. Next, color! Color? Ummm, most common color or phrase with color in it...red dress...red!

    If you are not focused on the numbers or tired in general, your mind wanders more. Then you get drill press and grigio alloy.

    Now here's some real magic. I bet you could never figure this out... What number am I thinking of??!

    What do you mean it's not incrementing...? Right now you're at 1,411... Post again, see what happens...

    Is there an angle on this number you're thinking of...? A hint you might wanna give me...?
