Crazy mind trick

77 posts in this topic

If do the same thing with the number 6, and ask the name of a vegetable, most people say "carrot". Most others say "cucumber".

Green hammer for me.

Not to make you feel guilty or anything, but I can't believe you're neglecting the GameDev Comic for this.

Red pen.

A pen is a tool, yes? a drawing tool?

I read off the screen, not aloud... I assume I was thinking in terms of letter count, which is supposed to be part of how the carrot thing works? :s

(For those who don't know: "spanner" == wrench.)

Another one:

How much is:

1 + 5?
3 + 3?
4 + 2?
5 + 1?


Repeat the number 6 in your head as fast as possible
for 15 seconds.

FAST!!! THINK OF A VEGETABLE!

Think, think...






















You were thinking about a CARROT, weren't you!?!
Really weird, right!?!?!

Yeah someone did a similiar trick on me but with number 16. I think these "stupid tasks" are not to just to clear your mind. For this trick someone told me it has to do with our mind associating the numbers with words. 6 and 16 carat are standard measures of gold. Thus "most" people subconsiously associate the numbers 6 and 16 with the word "carat". And when suddenly asked a question supposedly CARAT is the first word that comes to mind, and it sounds like the vegetable CARROT, which is why the question is "Name A Vegatable". But don't quote me on this.

I think my mind is broken. I said blue wrench. Not odd at first glance, but I don't remember ever actually using the word 'wrench' in my life. I use spanner instead but I was trying to think fast and it is the first tool I thought of.

Orange. I think the color mind-trick screwed this one up for me because I recall answering carrot to this before.

Except they aren't; 10, 14 and 18 are standard measures of gold fraction (24 carat = pure). However, the symbol you get with shift + 6 key is a "caret", for what that's worth. Also, "carrot" has six letters. But most likely, carrots just come to mind first for most people regardless, because they're a common/popular enough veggie. And I've never heard the version with number 16.

Anyway, I Like Bread's mention of the trick is not first in the thread. And for what it's worth, I get celery. (And why anyone comes up with cucumber is entirely beyond me.
