Are You Qualified To Be A Manager?

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Remæus on Mon Jul 09, 2007 8:27 am

The following short quiz consists of 4 questions and will tell you whether you are qualified to be a professional manager. Scroll down for each answer. The questions are NOT difficult. But don't scroll down UNTIL you have answered the question!

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 simple things in an overly complicated way.

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

Did you say, Open the refrigerator, put in the elephant, and close the refrigerator?

Wrong Answer.

Correct Answer: Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in the elephant and close the door. This tests your ability to think through the repercussions of your previous actions.

3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All the animals attend... except one. Which animal does not attend?

Correct Answer: The Elephant. The elephant is in the refrigerator. You just put him in there. This tests your memory. Okay, even if you did not answer the first three questions correctly, you still have one more chance to show your true abilities.

4. There is a river you must cross but it is used by crocodiles, and you do not have a boat. How do you manage it?

Correct Answer: You jump into the river and swim across. Have you not been paying attention? All the crocodiles are attending the Animal Meeting. This tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.

Damn! I got every one wrong!
"Some things are important. Others are not. Yet all would claim a mortal's attention. It falls to each of us to remain ever mindful, and thus purchase wisdom in the threading of possibilities. It is our common failing that we are guided by our indifference to eventualities. The moment pleases, the future can await consideration." - Steven Erikson's Midnight Tides

Missed the first two, got the second two.


EDIT: A friend of mine suggested a different answer on the last question that I like better. Take the elephant out of the fridge and ride it across. Teaches you to use the recourses at your disposal. Besides, you can't leave the poor elephant in the fridge forever.
I am everything and nothing all at once, I am the imperfect perfection. I am like nothing you have ever seen, nor will ever see again, and the most common sight in existence.

I am me.

I agree with Spasm's last answer. That is the exact answer I thought of for the last question. My answer for the first one was kind of twisted. I said chop the Giraffe up and then place the slices in the fridge. I kind of got it right. =/ I suppose based off of my answer, the answer to the third question would mean the giraffe didn't attend either then since he's all chopped up.

Damn... I messed those questions up pretty bad.
