Dementia test

Let’s see how you do:

1. You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?

Answer: If you answered that you are first, then you are absolutely wrong! If you overtake the second person and you take his place, you are second!

Try not to screw up next time. Now answer the second question, but don’t take as much time as you took for the first question, OK ?

2. If you overtake the last person, then you are…? (scroll down)

Answer: If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong again. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST person?

You’re not very good at this, are you?

3. Very tricky arithmetic! Note: This must be done in your head only . Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Try it.

Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000 . Now add 30 … Add another 1000 . Now add 20 . Now add another 1000 . Now add 10 . What is the total?

Did you get 5000 ? The correct answer is actually 4100.

If you don’t believe it, check it with a calculator! Today is definitely not your day, is it? Maybe you’ll get the last question right… Maybe.

4. Mary’s father has five daughters: 1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini, 4. Nono. What is the name of the fifth daughter?

Did you Answer Nunu? NO! Of course ! It isn’t . Her name is Mary. Read the question again!

5. A deaf-mute person goes into a shop and wants to buy a toothbrush. By imitating the action of brushing his teeth he successfully expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done.

Next, a blind man comes into the shop who wants to buy a pair of sunglasses; how does HE indicate what he wants?

He just has to open his mouth and ask…It’s really very simple.

So… Are you demented?

Where do you stand politically?

CentristSo, you think you know where you stand, politically.  Think again.  The result from this short  test may surprise you and give you some food for thought.

 You’ll be asked  just 10 questions, and then it instantly tells you where you stand politically.  It shows your position as a red dot on a “political map” so you’ll see exactly where you score. 

 The most interesting thing about the Quiz is that it goes beyond the Democrat, Republican, and Independent.

 The Quiz has gotten a lot of praise.  The Washington Post said it has “gained respect as a valid measure of a person’s political leanings.”  The Fraser Institute said it’s “a fast, fun, and accurate assessment of a person’s overall political views.”  Suite University said it is the  “most concise and accurate political quiz out there.”
