This week is exams week.

Which roughly translates to OMG do whatever the hell I can to not study for exams week.

I guess this is one of those things. ;)

Here乫s a bunch of questions I encountered today that乫s supposed
to help you judge whether someone will be a good Consultant. This is not
really specific to IT consultants, but the point is useful anyway.

鈥斺?斺?斺?斺?斺?斺?斺??

Q1.  How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?

The correct answer is:  Open the refrigerator, put in the giraffe, and close the door.

This question tests whether you tend to do simple things in an overly complicated way.

Q2. How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?

Did you say, Open the refigerator, put in the elephant and close the refrigerator?

Wrong Answer

Correct Answer:  Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in the elephant and close the door.

This tests your ability to think through the repercussions of your previous actions.

Q3.  The Lion King is hosting an animal conference.  All the animals attend乧 except one. Which animal does not attend?

Correct Answer:  The elephant.  The elephant is in the refrigerator.

You were the one who just stuffed the elephant into the refrigerator.

This tests your memory.

Okay, even if you did not answer the first three questions correctly, you still have one more chance to show your true analytical abilities.

Q4. There is a river you must cross but it is used by crocodiles, and you do not have a boat. How do you manage it?

Correct Answer:  You jump into the river and swim across. Have you not been listening? All the crocodiles are attending the Animal Meeting.

This tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.

According to a consulting firm using this test, approximately 90% of the professionals tested answered incorrectly but many preschoolers answered several answers correctly.

One conjecture: most professionals don乫t have the analytical powers of a four-year-old.

鈥斺?斺?斺?斺?斺?斺?斺??

Now, I fully realize that this isn乫t a 乬ask this questions on a job interview乭 kind of advice, but more like 乬here乫s something to break the ice乭. But I would bet large amounts of money that some bozo hiring manager in some consulting company will actually use this as a criteria for hiring someone.
