The 3.0, third dimension (3D) society in my opinion has been in existence even when we had not started interacting with it in the sci-fi way in which we now do. The world has always been in the multi-dimensional as opposed to being mono-dimensional. It has taken a few people the insight to discover it and then carve it out in their own perspective, which can be 4D, 3D, 5D etc.
In a post by 99u.com, emphasis was laid on creative mental challenges. Psychologists, recruiters, family, friends and subordinates come to seek for opinions, perspectives, insight, foresight and we as individuals tend to overlook the enormity of what our unique and sometimes out of the world point of view can mean to the other person.
It is rather pointless for your opinion to be sought, and what you can give in reply is a mundane, dull and very obvious answer. We are as individuals, corporations, organizations are looking for people who can handle and deal with things in creative ways, people who have the ability to engage in lateral thinking, that is, solving problems through a creative and indirect approach, using reasoning that is not obvious.
Let’s see you take the tests we have below and you may be amazed at what you’ll come up with. Try these brain teasing challenges, and have fun while you are at it.
Take the creativity test:
Alternative Uses Test
This test makes use of everyday object and meddles with the uses you can come up with. It therefore stretches your creative faculties by making you come up with various uses you can come up with for an everyday object. For example:
How many uses can you think up for Brick?
1. To build a house
2. Use as a doorstop
3. Use as paperweight
4. Throw through a window
Now come up with various uses for Spoon.
Remote Associates/ Word Association
Remote Associates takes unrelated words and asks you to come up with a word that connects all those words together. Solutions usually come up like a flash of insight.
With Word association, you come up with a word that is associated to the original word pronounced or written. It is often played as a game.
This is another method used to test creativity and creative responses. It is often used to test creative problem solving potential.
Marsha and Marjorie were born on the same day of the same month of the same year to the same mother and the same father, yet they are not twins. How is that possible?
Answer: They are triplets.
Now, let’s put our mental resources to the task.
Basketball: Our basketball team won a game last week by the score of 73-49, and yet not even one man on our team scored as much as a single point. How is that possible?
Mr. Shadow: Mr. Shadow opened the door to Dr Apple’s office and surveyed the scene. Dr Apple’s head lay on her desk in a pool of blood. On the floor to her right lay a gun. There were powder burns on her right temple indicating that she was shot at close range. On her desk was a suicide note and in her right hand the pen that had written it. Mr. Shadow noted that death had occurred in the past hour. He also realized that it had not been a suicide but a clear case of murder. How does Mr. Shadow know?
