IQ tests and personality quizzes are all the rage online these days. We spend a great deal of time trying to see how our minds stack up against those of our peers.

No brain is quite like any other; each one of us is simply different. Lateral-thinking tests are a prime way to understand your mind even better. These are 3 that work well.

Test number one: How many F’s are in the following text?

“Finished files are the result of years of scientific study combined with the experience of years.”

Pretty easy test, right? Okay, let’s move on to the second one. Don’t worry, you’ll get the answer in a moment.

Test number two: How much is:

15 + 6

3 + 56

89 + 2

12 + 54

Now think of a tool and its color!

Final test:

A girl is attending her mother’s funeral where she sees a man she’s never seen before. He was charming and handsome – really the man in her dreams. She fell for him hard. After several days, the young girl killed her own sister.

What was her motive?

Test one:

How many F’s did you count? Probably three, right? It’s funny, because for some reason, our mind’s down process the word “of.” There were actually six.

Test two:

98% of people think of a red hammer after completing this test. Almost everyone thinks of some kind of hammer. Why? Hard to say for sure.

Test three:

It’s because she hoped the man would appear again, right? If this was your answer, you may have the brain patters of a psychopath. This test was created by an American psychologist to determine murderous mentalities among people.
