This is one of those emails going around, and it worked for me, and now I'm kind of freaked out. Read through this - and finish each mathematical calculation before moving on to the next question - then post in the comments if it worked for you, and someone please explain why. Because it worked for me.

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, then e-mail it around (including back to me) and you'll see how many people you know fall into the same percentage as you. Be sure to put in the subject line if you are among the 98% or the 2%. You'll understand what that means after you finish taking the "test".

It didn't work for me, but how about you?

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 need to write or remember the answers, just do it using your mind.

You'll be surprised.

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.

I thought "blue saw".
soarer
green hammer

I thought "red hammer." I guess that means I'm a conformist.

blue wrench? From the DS results, it seems that 2% is rather inaccurate or DS is filled with a lot of basket cases.

I seriously said "red hammer." That was so creepy. *chills*

Perhaps the statistics should be switched? The normal 98% will not answer red hammer, and the wierd, abnormal 2% will?
camshaft
Pour moi, 'twas a red screwdriver...that was a really weird test, though.
Black RSX
I thought of a Yellow Shovel.

I thought of a red toolbox with a hammer in it, but said red hammer in my mind, weird.

Magenta? You've been watching too many home decorating shows with "the wife."
clarkma5
So, using DS as a test audience, we can say that the 98% statistic is total bullshit.

it's a reasonably random distribution of common colors and tools.
PAULIE_D
Nah... I think we just have many "special" members here that don't conform with the rest of society.
