Ok, can someone explain this?

This is one of those emails going around, and it worked for me, and now I’m kind of freaked out. Read through this – and finish each mathematical calculation before moving on to the next question – then post in the comments if it worked for you, and someone please explain why. Because it worked for me.

At the end of this message, you are asked a question. Answer it immediately. Don’t stop and think about it. Just say the first thing that pops into your mind. This is a fun “test”… AND kind of spooky at the same time! Give it a try, then e-mail it around (including back to me) and you’ll see how many people you know fall into the same percentage as you. Be sure to put in the subject line if you are among the 98% or the 2%. You’ll understand what that means after you finish taking the “test”.

Now… just follow the instructions as quickly as possible. Do not go to the next calculation before you have finished the previous one

You do not need to write or remember the answers, just do it using your mind.

You’ll be surprised.

Start: How much is:

15 + 6

3 + 56

89 + 2

12 + 53

75 + 26

25 + 52

63 + 32

I know! Calculations are hard work, but it’s nearly over. Come on, one more…

123 + 5

QUICK! THINK ABOUT A COLOR AND A TOOL!

Scroll further to the bottom…

A bit more…

You just thought about a red hammer, didn’t you?

If this is not your answer, you are among 2% of people who have a different, if not abnormal, mind. 98% of the folks would answer a red hammer while doing this exercise.
