Joke: Managers and intelligence

This famous quiz game has been developed by Andersen Consulting (now
Accenture) and will help you understand better your style of thinking.

1. How do you put a giraffe in the fridge?
Correct answer: Open the fridge, put the giraffe inside, close the fridge.
This question checks if you tend to make simple things complicated.

2. How do you put an elephant in the fridge?
Wrong answer: Open the fridge, put the elephant inside, close the fridge.
Correct answer: Open the fridge, remove the giraffe, put the elephant inside, close the fridge. This question checks your ability to consider implications from your previous actions.

3. The Lion King organized a moot for the animals: all the animals are present but one. Which one?
Correct answer: The elephant. The elephant is in the fridge. This checks your memory. Even though you did not answer the first three questions correctly, you will answer the next one for sure.

4. You have to cross a river, but it is populated by alligators. What are you going to do?
Correct answer: You swim across the river because all the alligators are attending the moot. This question checks if you learn quickly from your mistakes.

According to Andersen Consulting Worldwide, 90% of the managers who undertook the test failed all the answers, on the contrary many children under 6 answered some questions correctly. Andersen Consulting says this is the proof that many top managers have the same brain as a 4-years old child!
