Test for logical thinking
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 the problem, some circumstances that are considered previously somehow proven and always true.
" Effect " is a logical consequence of the 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 the words in the test should be interpreted as it is done in ordinary everyday Russian, but not in the same way as in mathematics or another special field. All words in a test must be interpreted literally, no metaphors or hints in the test are provided.
In the test, you can find unfamiliar words, such as "kuzdra." These words are intended to assess your ability to think logically, separating it from your other knowledge about the world. Consider that these words can mean anything, but so that the phrase in the condition is truthful in meaning. For example, if it is written that “kuzdra is running”, this means that the kuzdra really knows how to run and, apparently, has legs or legs, this could be for example a person, an animal or a walking mechanism
Sometimes in the test there are opposing words and expressions, for example, "can" and "do not know", "big" and "small", etc. In all such cases, it is assumed that intermediate options ("can, but badly", "medium") are not considered.
You have a well-developed logical thinking. If you make mistakes in reasoning, it is mainly by chance or from fatigue, but not because of inability. Nevertheless, remember that all good things can always be improved - unless, of course, you need it.
Your logical thinking is well developed. However, you can make mistakes in unusual or confusing cases. Having received any conclusion as a result of reasoning, do not rush to accept it for the truth. Make it a rule to double-check your conclusions, look for mistakes in them and just weak points. Do not be surprised, do not be indignant if you are corrected: perhaps for the cause.
You did not have the patience to pass the entire test, you made it only in part, and the remaining points were chosen at random.
Your logical thinking is underdeveloped. If you try to reason publicly, then, quite possibly, you will be ridiculed. You will have to turn to the other strengths of your personality if you want to convince someone or learn something. However, maybe you are not completely hopeless if you try to learn.
You passed the test, poking at points at random.
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 taken for a madman.
You did not want to take the test.
You have a well-developed logical thinking. If you make mistakes in reasoning, it is mainly by chance or from fatigue, but not because of inability. Nevertheless, remember that all good things can always be improved - unless, of course, you need it. In this case, you decided to show off and answer questions intentionally wrong.
