Management Test

The following short quiz consists of 4 questions and will tell you whether you are qualified to be a professional manager. Scroll down for each answer. The questions are NOT difficult. But don't scroll down UNTIL you have answered the question!

1. 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.

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

Did you say, Open the refrigerator, 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.

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

Correct Answer: The Elephant. The elephant is in the refrigerator. You just put him in there. 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 abilities.

4. 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 paying attention? All the crocodiles are attending the Animal Meeting. This tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.



There is not a snow balls chance in hell that any of my managers would have even managed to read the questions never mind answer them.

I may put a manager in the fridge one day.

This was excellent! These tests would also help with politicians being screened too! Unfortunately it has been said that the voters memory is only six months though...

First of all I have to say I love your new template.

Secondly, I loved that test. I would definitely have failed it though.

Brilliant ... this is well-worthy of wider circulation --- but I think my level of competence barely rises to 28% marks in the BBC-News weekly test

Is there any likelihood of 4-Dinners' managers putting him in the fridge or has it now been filled with the remains of RainCoaster's Mummified Fairy

For a moment there I thought I was back at the County. I now see where I went wrong.
