Management IQ Test

1335048_test_letters I found this test at www.atimetolaugh.org  and wanted to share it with you.  I am sorry to say I did not score very well, but got a few good laughs from it. I wish you all a very happy Saturday, enjoy each moment!

The following short quiz consists of 4 questions and (allegedly) tells whether you are truly ready for ‘management’.

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?
The wrong answer is:
Open the refrigerator, put in the elephant and close the door.
The correct answer is:
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 actions.


3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference, all the animals attend except one. Which animal does not attend?
The correct answer is:
The Elephant. The Elephant is in the refrigerator.

This tests your memory.


OK, even if you did not answer the first three questions, correctly, you still have one more chance to show your abilities.
4. There is a river you must cross. But it is inhabited by crocodiles. How do you manage it?
The correct answer is:
You swim across. All the Crocodiles are attending the Animal Meeting!

This tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.


According to a Leading Management Consulting firm, around 90% of the management professionals they tested got all 4 questions wrong.
(But many preschoolers got several correct answers.)
This conclusively disproves the theory that most management professionals have the brains of a four-year old.
