Hi friends,I wanted to share this riddle,trick whatever it is with you.But I wanna have your opinionex about it.To may way of thinking it's a bit silly.Cos it doesn't work as it says.I wonder whether you give the answer that they

expect or not..Take care(don't forget to let me know)

This is for the Psychology majors...

Don't need pen or paper. Just answer as you go. Free will or synaptic wiring? You be the judge. Check out the following exercise, guaranteed to raise an eyebrow. There's no trick or surprise. Just follow these instructions, and answer the questions one at a time and as quickly as you can! Again, as quickly as you can but don't advance until you've done each of them ... really.

Now, arrow down (but not too fast, you might miss something).........

What is:

1+5

2+4

3+3

4+2

5+1

Now repeat saying the number 6 to yourself as fast as you can for 15 seconds. Then scroll down.

QUICK!!! THINK OF A VEGETABLE! !

Then arrow down.

Again arrow down.

You're thinking of a carrot, right?

If not, you're among the 2% of the population whose minds are different enough to think of something else. 98% of people will answer with carrot when given this exercise. Freaky, huh?

Hey DJ Bueno,

When i was doing you little trick thingy, i thought of carrot! When i finished doing it, i remembered i did a trick like that but it was:

2+2..

4+4..

8+8..

16+16..

32+32..

64+64..

Think of a vegie quick!

(and then ppl thought of carrot)

I also know another one but not the same type, here it is...(it works better if you actually say it though)

(scroll down)

Both of my friends thought of a vegetable ,i was thinking about cabbage,and that of my friends is potato.....do u put us in that 2% of the people
This is " kidding "
I thought it worked by associating the "Sticks and Carrots" thing. You know, the adage? Six sounds like sticks.

I used to know that trick like that;

Say "silk" ten times....

Now what do cows drink?

You'll probably think of milk
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
There's another one(maybe i modified it, but it should work all right):

Say "coast" six times.

Coast

Coast

Coast

Coast

Coast.

What do you put in a toaster?

Well, the first thing you want to say is "toast." The answer, of course, is "bread."
Thanx, DJB,
...and LOL to Tearsofjoy, i said toast...lololol
(i like these sort of tricks)

Hm I thought potato, but maybe that's just because they're the best vegetable in the world and I could live purely on them for my entire life...

That apart, Joy, I thought bread!! Feeling considerably smug....
