Are you NORMAL ?!

Postby narjes » Sun Jul 17, 2005 3:29 pm

Here's something that you may enjoy:

Have you ever wondered if your mind is normal or different?? Well, do this little mind exercise and find out at the end!! You be the judge. Check out the following exercise, guaranteed to raise an eyebrow. There's no trick or surprise. Just follow these instructions, and answer the questions one at a time and as quickly as you can. Again, as quickly as you can but don't advance until you've done each of them...really. Now, scroll down (but not too fast,you might miss something)........






What is:
















1+5



















2+4

















3+3
















4+2
















5+1




















Now repeat saying the number 6 to yourself as fast as you can for 15 seconds.





















Then scroll down.

























QUICK!!! THINK OF A VEGETABLE!


















Then arrow down




























Keep going


















You're thinking of carrot, right?














If not, you're among the 2% of the population whose minds are different enough to think of something else.









98% of people will answer with carrot when given this exercise










Freaky, huh?

Yeah, at first I was thinking of broccoli, but I hated it so changed my thought to cabbage and then carrot and then cabbage. It was cabbage, carrot, cabbage, carrot for about two-three seconds or so. It was freaky to me. I was like, "what the hell is going on? Why can't I think of something I like? Screw it. I'm looking for an answer"

Carrots never crossed my mind while I was doing this exercise. I was between tomato and avocado but then I had to turned down the tomato cuz I remembered that someone had said that it was considered a fruit and not a vegetable or something like that.
So does that make me a freak?
Oh well if that happened to be true, I'd prefer being a freak to being just normal. :wink:

This test is for people who know English well, who think by English. This test isn't for me 8) cause I think by russian language in more cases. :wink:

Now that you mentioned that, Lennye. I was wondering the same thing. Before thinking in any vegetable, I was like: "Wait, should I think in Spanish or English?"
Then I thought, "Oh well, it should be in English since I'm being asked in English." :wink:

This is so funny, Dix. I thought with images first. I pictured a beautiful, green avocado and then bright, red tomatoes. :roll:

That's what I meant. Your mind works with images before words. When you think of a beautiful house, for instance, what do you see first in your mind: an image of that house, or the words you use to describe it? :D

That's what I thought, too Vi. It's either that or we all have a little of weirdness inside us all.

:lol: that's interesting. As for my case, I was scrolling it down and I was blah blah blah..., so broccoli was in my head. But then I remembered I hated broccoli. Right after that, cabbage popped up in my head (in English) and carrot (in Vietnamese since carrots in Vietnamese is a borrowed word in English; therefore, they both kinda sound the same).

Wow :D It's very interesting. As soon as I saw the word vegetable, an image of carrot popped up in my mind. I don't know why it came in my mind. I was thinking of carrot for around 3 seconds before switching to potato.
Everyone's invited!
