    I'd like to poll the intelligence of General Forum. But not with your standard IQ test... This is a simple Divergence test that will test your ability to think critically.

    As quickly as you can, give yourself around 5-10 minutes (more if you have to its not like I can stop you :hah:) and answer these two questions:

    Question 1 & 2: Name ALL of the uses you can think of for the two objects;

    #1.... A Brick

    #2.... A Blanket

    Please spoil your answers (the button that represents a steaming pile of dog ****. Or spoil them yourself using the bb code:

    I'm interested in how you all answer, I have no clinically based reasons for this, just an interest to see how truly your minds & imaginations flow....

    and please Most Importantly !!!!!!!

    [highlight] Do the Test yourself BEFORE you read anyone elses answers![/highlight]
