Final assessment and debrief.

According to Andersen Consulting Worldwide, around 90% of professionals tested got ALL questions wrong. Any yet many preschoolers got several correct answers. Anderson Consulting says this conclusively disproves the theory that most professionals have the brains of a 4 year old.

The questions test your reasoning and lateral thinking ability. So….if you answered four out of four correctly you are a true professional and lateral thinker.  Wealth and success await you.

If you answered three out of four, you have some catching up to do, but there is hope for you.

If you answered two out of four, consider a career as a hamburger flipper of BOLT/ WOLT driver.

If you answered one out of four, try selling some of your organs. It is the only way you will ever make any money.

If you answered NONE correctly, consider a career that does not require any higher mental function at all, such a law, politics, or computer support.
