How Observant Are You

How Observant Are You
“““““““““““““““““““““““
The average person only gets 7
correct.

This is based on U.S. info, so
use all lobes of your brain.
This can be more difficult than
it looks – it just shows how
little most of us really see!

There are 25 questions about
things we see every day or have
known about all our lives.
How many can you get right?

These little simple questions are
harder than you think– it just
shows you how little we pay
attention to the commonplace
things of life.

Put your thinking caps on.
NO CHEATING!
No looking around!
No getting out of your chair!
No using anything on or in your
desk or computer!

Can you beat 20?? (The average is 7)
Write down your answers as you go.
Check answers (on the bottom),
AFTER completing all the questions.
REMEMBER – NO CHEATING!!!
BE HONEST!!! That means no looking
at your phone or anything on your
desk…

Then, before you pass this on to
your friends, change the number
on the subject line to show how
many you got correct. Forward to
your friends and also back to the
one who sent it to you.

    I got 17. Does lucky guessing count? I was not sure about the match one but I figured one for each cigarette and there are 20 of those in a pack so it made sense….
