The Banana Test There is a very, very tall coconut tree and there are 4 animals, a Lion, a Chimpanzee, a Giraffe, and a Squirrel, who pass by. They decide to compete to see who is the fastest to get a banana off the tree. Who do you guess will win? Your answer will reflect your personality. So think carefully . . .. Try and answer within 30 seconds !!! Got your answer? Now scroll down to see the analysis. If your answer is: Lion = you're dull. Chimpanzee = you're a moron. Giraffe = you're a complete idiot. Squirrel = you're just hopelessly stupid. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A COCONUT TREE DOESN'T HAVE BANANAS. Obviously you're stressed and overworked. You should take some time off and relax! Try again next year.

Yipee, the smart ones are around. Good for you, a lot of my friends got fooled. That comes from not reading the question properly. Thanks. Life is at most times serious, thought wed have a little fun.

I learned the hard way a long time ago to always read the question twice and try to think about what the question is asking. While your first answer to a question is usually the correct answer, it is important to make sure that you understand what the question is asking BEFORE you submit your answer on the test. It never hurts to read the question multiple times. I have actually used another approach at times in the past to help me make sure I was reading the question correctly. There have been a few times in the past when I actually took out a pen and paper and wrote the question down word-for-word from the paper. It is a lot easier to make sure you are not being tricked by a question like this one if you actually write it for yourself. People tend not to remember or comprehend much of what they read, however, the percentage of what is remembered or comprehended increases in cases where the person writes something down...

Phew, you seem to be one of the few who really concentrate and read. I suppose you learnt it the hard way for you to be so cautious. Anyway, we are all better off with lessons learnt in life. Cheers.

any way.it's interesting question. and i guess,if you ask other person when you are talking,many people will be fooled.but if you write it here,many people will find out the key. it's different between listen and read.you can listen just once,but you can read many time again.

Yes, you have hit the nail on the head. Mostly those who fell into the trap were told orally, so could only hear it once. Good w ork.

OMG this is so funny…you really had me foxed there. And no, I am not that thick, in fact I was thinking of ‘asking’ you whether there’s any typo error here, I mean you start off with a banana tree and then talk of a coconut tree! Good joke, anyway.

Actually it just shows how smart mylotters are. A lot of my friends got foxed with this one and started choosing this animal and that. It comes from not reading the question properly. But it was fun and Im glad you enjoyed it.
