Only schizophrenics and geniuses can answer these three questions. The way a person answers the most straightforward questions, can reveal a lot about them, and about what’s going on in their head. Questions are used all around the world by psychologists, to find out whether an individual is a genius, or needs professional help, or both. You will say: “All right, so if I answer these questions correctly, does it mean my place is in a lyceum?” Of course it does not. In prison times, people become more creative, so your answers will just prove that you have a creative mind. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it. We’ve discovered three tricky questions that can determine your true personality. Who are you: Mad Hatter or Salvador Dali? Each question will have a countdown of ten seconds. All you have to do it’s just look at the pictures, and try to figure out what’s in common in these two. The correct answer will appear right after ten seconds. So, you’ll be able to compare it with yours, and draw your own conclusions. Wait until the end, and we will reveal how this method works. Also, we’ll show you a bonus question, that will identify how creative you are, and how fast your brain is. Shall we begin? Okay. Let’s go ahead. Here’s your first question. What do a kettle and a steamboat have in common? I’ll give you 10 seconds to think. So, are you ready for the right answer? It is steam. Okay, let’s go forward. Here’s question two. What do a race car and a tornado have in common? Any ideas? Here are your 10 seconds. So, here’s the right answer. They move in circles. Aww man! All right, number three. That’s the most difficult one. What do a shoe and a pencil have in common? Ready? Go. Do you know the answer? They both leave behind a trace of their presence. Kind of like a skunk, or maybe a snail. Eww. Well, how many correct answers have you got? If none, there’s no need to worry – your state of mind is completely healthy. Except for that one over there. But, if they turned out to be completely simple, then you may have an inclination towards psychological problems. And it may be worth seeking professional advice to make sure everything’s okay. Now, this kind of test is an example of the Contraposition method, which is used to reveal the extent of someone’s awareness. If someone with a standard mind is asked the question: What do a crow and a desk have in common? They’ll probably answer nothing. To some extent they’re correct. In general, these two things can’t be compared. Now, someone with schizophrenia on the other hand, immediately searches for less prominent, deeper connections between the two objects. Without too much thinking, they might exclaim that people write letters at their desks, and a crow has feathers that can be used to write with. Aah! But, how can you tell the difference between a schizophrenic person and a real genius. The difference is that, the former will answer such questions immediately, where as a genius will need to concentrate. Discard the first most obvious, and least interesting ideas that come into their head, and come up with a truly unique answer. Now, were your answers unique? Share your results in the comments. Now it’s time for the bonus. Let’s see how creative you are, and how fast your brain is. Take a look at this picture. What animal do you see? I’ll give you ten seconds again. So, most of the people see the duck first. However, then they switch to the rabbit, which is also a correct answer. What does it mean? The key is how easily you can switch your consciousness from one image to another, and that’s the identifier how creative you are. This switch is like a creative flash inside your brain, which changes your perception of the reality, it helps to understand that the world can be seen in different ways.
