Choose the Most Foolish Person in the Picture

Our choices define us, even if it’s a seemingly insignificant matter. That’s simply the way our subconscious works.

Creative Idea 365 offers you this very simple test: simply choose which of the figures in this image seems the most foolish to you.

 

#1

You’re a leader and most likely an extrovert. Those around you believe they can rely on you, although you also have a reputation for being stubborn. You often take decisions too rashly. Try spending a little more time thinking over your ideas.

#2

“Measure twice, cut once.” This old saying is definitely about you. Wisdom and emotional stability are what define you. However, sometimes you try to shift responsibility for things onto others. You’re a kind person, and sometimes those around you feel tempted to take advantage of you.

#3

You love to dream, but your dreams are very bold. Yet you somehow manage to turn them into reality. People often don’t understand you as your views can seem extravagant to many.

#4

You’re a highly principled person with a headstrong personality. You have an opinion about everything, and you’re always ready to go against the system. But be careful of doing things that might be harmful to yourself just to prove a point to others.

5 Google Job Interview Questions That Can Make Even a Genius Doubt Themselves

The Google Company has become known not only for its achievements but for job interviews you won’t meet anywhere else. The interview can take place in a cafe around the corner or via Skype, and the questions will be so difficult that any brainiac will have to strive for the answer.
Think About Network decided to test you and put together the 5 most difficult questions that Google has ever asked its applicants.

Billiard balls

There are 8 billiard balls. One of them weighs slightly more than the others. How many weighings on the scales do you need to define the ball without using weights?

Dead man in a desert

A man was found dead in a desert, a match in his hand. No traces. Why and how did he die?

4 liters of water

You have unlimited access to water and two jars: 5 L and 3 L. Measure 4 liters precisely.

Bears

You built a house, all the sides of which are south looking. Suddenly you noticed a bear. What color is it?

Pills

A doctor gave 4 pills to a patient: 2 pills of each type that cannot be told apart from each other. The patient should take the pills in two stages: 1 pill of each type in the morning and the same in the evening. If he breaks the dose or does not take pills, the patient will die. The pills happen to become mixed. How does he get his treatment and survive?

 

 

Of course, we should say it’s better to visit the doctor again and ask for new pills. After all, it’s a matter of life or death. But these might be the only pills in the world, the doctor might mysteriously disappear, etc. So we still need an answer. And this is how it sounds: the patient has to divide each pill into halves and take the halves of each pill in the morning and in the evening.

Try Solving These 8 Puzzles to Prove You’re Thinking Outside the Box

Our brains need workouts. Short puzzles and riddles are the perfect way to train your brain.
Think About Network collected some tasks to help the eggheads warm up their brains.

5 Logical Puzzles to Kick-Start Your Brain

These puzzles are simple enough to be solved over your coffee break. And tricky enough to stump you for hours, sending your mind on a wild goose chase!
So, are you up to the challenge?! The Think About Network team offers you a chance to stretch your brains a little by cracking a few of these mind-bending little beauties!

1. The prisoner hat riddle

The 4 criminals are lined up on some steps. They are all facing in the same direction. A wall separates the fourth man from the other three. So to summarize:
  • Man 1 can see men 2 and 3.
  • Man 2 can see man 3.
  • Man 3 can see none of the others.
  • Man 4 can see none of the others.
The criminals are wearing hats. They are told that there are two white hats and two black hats. The men initially don’t know what color hat they are wearing. They are told to shout out the color of the hat that they are wearing as soon as they know for certain what color it is.
  • They are not allowed to turn round or move.
  • They are not allowed to talk to each other.
  • They are not allowed to take their hats off.
Who is the first person to shout out and why?
Answer

Man 2 will shout out after some time.
Here’s why :
  • Man 3 and 4 cannot see the others hats.
  • Man 1 sees a white hat and a black hat and knows his hat can be black or white.
  • Man 2 sees one black hat , but if he is also wearing a black hat, it would be obvious to Man 1 that he is wearing a white hat. Since Man 1 did not shout out, Man 2 concluded that he himself is wearing a white hat.

2. Roadside difficulties

While changing a tyre, a motorist accidentally dropped all four wheel nuts into the sewer grate. He tried everything to retrieve them, but — to no avail. The man was beginning to suspect that he would have to spend many hours by the roadside, when a passing kid suddenly helped him solve the problem. Acting on the kid’s advice, he successfully fitted a new tyre and drove to the nearest service station without accidents.
What was the advice that the child had given the motorist?
Answer
The kid told the man to remove one nut from each of the other three wheels and use them to secure the new tyre!

3. A witch’s present

Once upon a time, Prince Charming was searching far and wide for his betrothed. Summer had already ended, when he came upon a shack, inhabited by an old witch. The weary traveler asked if she could grant him refuge for the night. The witch obliged and showed her guest a warm welcome, offering him food, drink and a place to sleep. The next morning, as Prince Charming was preparing to continue on his journey, she gave him a present, saying: ’A time will come, when you’ll find your way barred by a wide river with no bridge. The only way to cross it is to swim to the other bank. This enchanted tunic will help you — it won’t let you drown!’.

Our hero continued on his journey. A hundred days and nights had passed before he came across the river the witch had warned him about. But, in the end — he didn’t need to put on the tunic to cross it! Can you guess why?!

Answer
Prince Charming visited the witch’s shack in September. After that, it took him a hundred days to reach the river. Which means that, by the time he got there, it was already mid-winter. The river was iced over and he simply walked across it to the other bank!
4. The rabbit hutch mystery
A farmer keeps rabbits in three large hutches that stand in a row in his back yard. Each of the hutches is painted a different color — red, yellow and green. Until recently, the number of rabbits in the green hutch was twice as large as the number of rabbits in the yellow hutch. Then, one day, the farmer took five rabbits out of the left-side hutch and gave them away to the local school’s pet corner. He also took half of the rabbits that remained in the left-side hutch and moved them to the red colored hutch.
Now, can you guess what color the left-side hutch is?!
Answer
It is yellow. As we already know, at the outset, the number of rabbits in the green hutch was twice as large as the number of rabbits in the yellow hutch. This means that the number of rabbits in the green hutch was an even number. After the farmer removed five rabbits from the left-side hutch, the number of rabbits that remained there also became an even number (this is proven by the fact that it was divisible by two). Therefore, before those five were removed, the left-side hutch contained an uneven number of rabbits. Hence, the left-side hutch can’t be the green colored one. But, based on the information we’ve got — it can’t be the red colored one, either!

5. Identify the culprit

Late one evening, a car ran over a pedestrian in a narrow bystreet and drove away without stopping. A policeman who saw the vehicle leave the scene of the accident reported it moving at very high speed. The accident itself was witnessed by six bystanders. They provided the following conflicting accounts of what had happened:
  • It was a blue car, driven by a man;
  • The car was moving at high speed, its headlights were turned off;
  • The car did have license plates, it wasn’t going very fast;
  • It was a Toyota, it’s headlights were turned off;
  • The car didn’t have license plates, the driver was a woman;
  • It was a gray Ford.
When the the car and its driver were finally apprehended, it turned out that only one of the six eyewitnesses gave a fully correct description. Each of the other five provided one true and one false piece of information.
Keeping that in mind, can you determine the following:
— What was the car’s brand?
— What color was the car?
— Was the car going fast or slow?
— Did it have license plates?
— Were its headlights turned on?
— Was the driver a man or a woman?
Answer
It was a blue Ford. It did have license plates. It was driving at high speed, with its headlights turned off. The driver was a woman. The solution to the riddle lies in the information, provided by the policeman (the car was going very fast). If we accept this statement as trustworthy, then the statement provided by one of the eyewitnesses (the car was going slowly) is false by default. After we’ve established that, eliminating all the other falsehoods won’t present a problem!

Which Word Did You See First? This Fact Can Reveal Much About Your Psychology

We at Think About Network just love quizzes and tests that you can do without spending too much time on. That’s why we put together the following one, which is short yet highly revealing.
All you need to do is take a quick look at the following image. The first word that your eyes find describes who you are and also what worries you at the present moment.
Lion — You’re the person who inspires others to move forward. Although you have moments of deep sadness, everyone knows you as an optimist in your heart. Your greatest weakness is in sometimes overestimating your abilities.
Fruit — You love people and are always ready to help. This aspect of your character can sometimes be a source of trouble for you, since it encourages others to sometimes take advantage of your kind heart. At present, your life feels harmonious.
Coffee — You enjoy fantasies. The chances are you’re the kind of person who loves to draw, paint, or engage in a similar form of creativity. However, you lack self-confidence and look to others to support you. You’re inclined to depression and often find yourself in a bad mood.
Rainbow — You love everything to be in its place, and you don’t feel comfortable with change. People know you to be a kind, calm, confident person whom they can rely on.
Nature — You’re an honest and straight-talking person. Directness is, of course, a good quality, but it may be worth being more careful — many people find it difficult to deal with. Sometimes, you find it very difficult to make decisions and agonize over the different options available.
Explorer — Your opinion of yourself is unjustifiably negative, and you think too much about how others view you. Try to be more independent, and you’ll see your self-estimation rise. Most likely, you’re quite pessimistic, or perhaps you simply took the quiz when you were in a bad mood.
Root — You’re inclined to underestimate your own abilities. However, you often have the ability to influence others without even realizing it. The chances are your hobbies are connected with tourism or nature.
Depths — You’re used to getting what you want, and you have the ability to see the essence of things. It’s for these reasons that some people consider you a dangerous individual. But, deep inside, you’re a soft, kind person.
Silk — You’re not searching for easy paths. You’re the kind of person who develops new ideas and brings innovation to our lives — you might even be an inventor. But it’s probably worth setting aside more time for relaxation and focusing your attention on those close to you.

Only 2% of People Can Solve This Einstein Riddle

We at Think About Network love to solve riddles — it’s a fun way to warm up and test our brain. Today we challenge you with a riddle devised by Albert Einstein.
Tip: Do it when you’re calm, and don’t despair!
To solve this riddle, you must know that there are 5 houses of 5 different colors. There is a person of a different nationality in each house. Each person drinks a certain drink, smokes a certain brand of cigarettes, and has a certain pet. But no one drinks the same drink, smokes the same brand of cigarettes, or has the same pet.

Who has the fish?

  • The British man lives in the red house.
  • The Swedish man has a dog for a pet.
  • The Danish man drinks tea.
  • The green house is to the left of the white house.
  • The owner of the green house drinks coffee.

  • The one that smokes Bluemaster drinks beer.
  • The German smokes Prince.
  • The Norwegian lives next to a blue house.
  • The person that smokes Blend has a neighbor that drinks water.
Tip: The key to finding the answer is to discard all possibilities progressively until you reach the final solution.

1. The Norwegian lives in the yellow house, drinks water, smokes Dunhill, and has a cat.
2. The Danish man lives in the blue house, drinks tea, smokes Blend, and has a horse.
3. The British man lives in the red house, drinks milk, smokes Pall Mall, and has a bird.
4. The German lives in the green house, drinks coffee, smokes Prince, and has a fish.
5. The Swedish man lives in the white house, drinks beer, smokes BlueMaster, and has a dog.
The German is the owner of the fish.
If you solved this tricky riddle, congratulations! You are very smart!

Test: Can You Recognize Everyday Objects Close Up?

The structures of the various objects that surround us on an everyday basis are actually incredible when you examine them close up.
Take a look at the following close-up images, and see if you can guess what they are.
We here at Think About Network didn’t guess many of these. How did you do?

Can You Solve a Brainteaser That Not Even Computers Understand?

We at Think About Network are certain that people are still way more intelligent than machines. And we can prove this to you.
This brainteaser is sometimes offered to people on computer courses — it’s possible for human beings to resolve, but no machine can ever work it out. Here it is:
How old are these 3 sisters, if:
  • Multiplying their ages gives a figure of 36;
  • Adding their ages together gives 13;
  • The oldest sister is blonde.
So did you work it out?

If multiplying their ages gives 36, then their ages have to be one of the following eight combinations:
36 = 2 × 3 × 6, and adding these ages together gives us 11.
36 = 2 × 2 × 9, and adding these ages together gives us 13.
36 = 4 × 9 × 1, and adding these ages together gives us 14.
36 = 4 × 3 × 3, and adding these ages together gives us 10.
36 = 18 × 2 × 1, and adding these ages together gives us 21.
36 = 12 × 3 × 1, and adding these ages together gives us 16.
36 = 6 × 6 × 1, and adding these ages together gives us 13.
36 = 36 × 1 × 1, and adding these ages together gives us 38.
We are left with two possible answers, since 2 + 2 + 9 = 13, as does 6 + 6 + 1. This is where the seemingly useless comment that “the oldest sister is blonde” turns out to be useful. This statement indicates that there is an older sister who doesn’t have a twin. In turn, only the first equation fits. Therefore, the answer is that the oldest sister is 9 years old and the younger ones are both 2.

17 challenging brainteasers for kids that will stretch your brain

When we grow up, we somehow become less spontaneous and creative. Our ability to simplify things as we did in childhood disappears too. We tend to complicate things, even in situations when the solution is right before our eyes.
We here at Think About Network have prepared some fun brainteasers that kids crack in no time but leave adults scratching their heads.

Who are you really? Find yourself in this intriguing test

This test was created by Pip Wilson, a famous British psychologist. It was made for elementary school students to see how well they did in their first three years of studies, but later on it turned out to be suitable for adults, too. The test helps determine your real and desirable emotional state and even realize what your social status is, too, to some extent.
Our Think About Network team has already taken the test, and some of us were quite surprised by the results. See what you think.
Each figure in this picture is in a different mood and has a different position on the tree. First, find the one that resembles you the most; then find the one that you would like to resemble.

Test results interpretation:

  • If you have chosen figures 1, 3, 6, or 7, then you’re a resolute person, not afraid of difficulties or obstacles.
  • If you feel that one of the figures 2, 11, 12, 18, or 19 resembles you, then you’re an amiable person who is always there when your friends need you.
  • The choice of figure 4 describes you as a steadfast person, who wants to achieve success without the hassle of overcoming hardships.
  • Number 5 means you’re often weary and feel weak, and you have little energy for life.
  • If you’ve chosen figure 9, you’re a merry and fun-loving person.
  • Choosing numbers 13 or 21 means that you’ve got the tendency to keep to yourself, you’re also frequently anxious and would normally avoid other people.
  • Figure 8 says that you’re a real daydreamer — you like being in your own world and away from this one.
  • Choosing figures 10 and 15 describes you as a well-adapted person, content with the life you have.
  • Picking number 14 signifies that you’re emotionally drained or exhausted. There is a good chance you’re facing inner emotional crisis or turmoil.
  • Figure 20 is for people with a heightened sense of self-importance. You’re a born leader, and you want to be the only one people listen to.
  • If your choice is figure 16, then you’re tired of supporting someone; however, you could have seen yourself as being hugged by figure 17, in that case you think of yourself as the one who is doted on.

Can You Solve a Detective Mystery Using Just One Picture?

In order to exercise your brain, you don’t necessarily have to multiply ten-digit numbers in your head. Sometimes, all it takes is one picture with a hidden explanation behind it.
We at Think About Network recommend trying to solve this unusual brainteaser right now.
It was a hot summer day, and a police detective decided to catch a little sun by the banks of a river. Suddenly, he heard a woman crying.
“What’s happened?“ he asked the sobbing girl. ”Please calm down and tell me everything one step at a time.“
“That’s easy for you to say,” said the girl between sobs. ”You can’t even imagine how dear that bracelet was to me. I come here every day. Today I took off my bracelet while sunbathing, placed it on top of my book, and accidentally fell asleep. I woke up and my bracelet wasn’t there anymore.”
The inspector fell into deep thought. There were no footsteps left by other people in the sand around where the girl had been sitting, apart from her own. There were no other people in the vicinity. It followed that only one of the regular visitors to the beach could have taken the bracelet. These people had now formed a thick wall all around the inspector. He looked at them and within a moment understood who could have taken it.
The only person who could reach the bracelet without leaving any footsteps in the sand is the one with the fishing rod. He was the first person to fall under suspicion.
