Logical Thinking Test
For adults and very smart children.
The test consists of 30 points. Each item has the form:
- a. Condition
- b. first consequence
- c. second consequence
- d. third consequence
A “condition” is a condition of a problem, some circumstances that are previously considered to be somehow proven and always true.
A “consequence” is a logical consequence of a condition. Of the three consequences, one and only one is correct. Your task is to test your ability to separate the correct logical consequences from the wrong ones.
The test does not require special mathematical knowledge. All words in the test should be interpreted in the same way as in ordinary everyday Russian, but not in the same way as in mathematics or another special field. All words in the test must be interpreted literally, no metaphors or hints in the test are provided.
In the test, you may find unfamiliar words, such as "cuzdra." These words are intended to evaluate your ability to think logically, separating it from your other knowledge of the world around you. Consider that these words can mean anything, but so that the phrase in the condition is true in meaning. For example, if it is written that "the cousin is running," this means that the cousin really knows how to run and, apparently, has legs or feet, it can be, for example, a person, animal or walking mechanism
Sometimes in the test, words and expressions that are opposite in meaning are encountered, for example, “they can” and “cannot”, “big” and “small”, etc. In all such cases, it is assumed that intermediate options ("knows how, but poorly", "average") are not considered.
You have well developed logical thinking. If you make mistakes in reasoning, then mostly by chance or from fatigue, but not because of inability. Nevertheless, remember that all the good can always be improved - if, of course, you need it.
You have well-developed logical thinking. However, you can make mistakes in unusual or confusing cases. Having received any conclusion as a result of reasoning, do not rush to take it for truth. Make it a rule to double-check your conclusions, look for errors and just weak spots in them. Do not be surprised, do not be indignant if they correct you: perhaps for the cause.
You did not have the patience to pass the entire test, you did it only partially, and the remaining items were chosen at random.
Your logical thinking is undeveloped. If you try to reason publicly, then, quite possibly, they will make fun of you. You will have to turn to other strengths of your personality if you want to convince someone of something or learn something. However, maybe you are not completely hopeless if you try to learn a little.
You passed the test, poking at random points.
You have no logical thinking at all. The result that you got can be obtained by simply poking at random. Do not try to "reason logically", especially in public. You may be mistaken for a madman.
You did not want to take the test.
You have well developed logical thinking. If you make mistakes in reasoning, then mostly by chance or from fatigue, but not because of inability. Nevertheless, remember that all the good can always be improved - if, of course, you need it. In this case, you decided to show off and answer questions deliberately wrong.
