OK, but way more intriguing if we knew why. Is there some sort of scientific experiment that goes along with this?
I’m reading “Stumbling on Happiness” by Daniel Gilbert and there are a lot of these sorts of puzzle type things. Gilbert notes that it’s not intriguing if everyone answered differently. It’s only intriguing if people answer mostly the same. And then he goes on to explain some of the reasons that our brain works the way it does and why we answer the way we do.
Did one of these things once while drunk. Shocked the guy because my answers to all his questions were not the usual ones (I’d never done it before though, so I had no clue what he was on about when he was asking me things). I forget the questions though.
ETA: He said it was something he’d learned recently in psych class, something about thought processes and creativity iirc.
I thought of a red hammer, which I thought was odd for me because when asked a color I always say blue. But I do actually own a red hammer and that’s what popped into my mind first because I pictured my tool box and that’s always the first thing I see in it.
Could thinking of a red hammer mean we’re all communists at heart?
ETA: Another thought, math makes me see red and want to hit myself on the head with a hammer to make it stop.
