Senses Challenge – An Interesting Game


The BBC has an interesting challenge on their site that asks you 20 questions about how your senses understand and pick up stimuli. Click on the image to give it a try.


I got 11 out of 20, but was lucky that my old restaurant background helped me with the food questions. Give it a try, it will take about 5 minutes or so,  and then come back and leave a comment on how well you did.

      Stranger, I hear you. If I did not have a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management and paid good money to Professors to teach me some of the food combinations, I would have been their right with you.

      I got an 8 that should’ve been a 9…on the decibel test I was so close to finishing it up it shut me down while I was dragging the last sound decibel effect! Grrrr!!!

      But wow that was hard.

      Well I got 8 and have to admit one of those was a flat out last second lucky guess. But whats so bad about this is that my wife got 11. OUCH! I’m arguing that this isn’t an aptitude test and that doesn’t make her smarter but I’m not getting an understanding response, looks like it’s going to be a long weekend. Thanks Tom (grrrr)!

      Sorry Indy…

      Another example of the law of unintended consequences.
