Spooky quiz - try it

At the end of this message, you are asked a question. 
Answer it immediately.
Don't stop and think about it. Just say the first thing that pops into your mind.

This is a fun 'test'... AND kind of spooky at the same time! Give it a try, then e-mail it around (including back to me) and you'll see how many people you know fall into the same percentage as you. Be sure to put in the subject line if you are among the 98% or the 2%. You'll understand what that means after you finish taking the 'test.' Now - just follow the instructions as quickly as possible. Do not go to the next calculation before you have finished the previous one.. You do not ever need to write or remember the answers, just do it using your mind. You'll be surprised. 

Start: How much is: 


15 + 6 


3 + 56 


89 + 2 


12 + 53 


75 + 26 


25 + 52 


63 + 32 


I know! Calculations are hard work, but it's! nearly over.. 

Come on, one more! ... 

123 + 5 



Now look at the first comment for the answer....

Um, I thought "Red screwdriver." Guess I'm not the one in 25 or whatever who will think you're a mind reader.

Blue hammer
Maybe its just that hammers and screwdrivers are the most common tols people use. Perhaps we'd get the same answers irrespective of the quiz quesions.
