Please have at least 15 posts before taking this test:




Print this page out on a sheet of paper before taking this test.


This is a test to determine how well you are able to follow directions. Accuracy is more important than speed; you will have all the time you need to complete the test. Before beginning, read the test through once carefully to make sure you understand all the directions.

1. In the first paragraph of this test, circle every word beginning with the letter A.

2. Underline two nouns in direction 1 of this test.

3. Count and write down the number of three-letter words in directions 2, 5, and 6.

4. Cross out all the commas in the first ten lines of this test.

5. Fill in the center of all the O’s in the third line of the first paragraph of this test.

6. Do not follow any of the first five numbered directions. Do not make any mark on this paper.

I have seen this test before. Credit goes to a website I can not remember for these questiosns.

it's amazing how many people would go through the trouble of taking this test, beause they don't read the very first instruction, which was to read the whole thing through

I've seen it in a book, well it's a teensy bit different:

It doesn't say "before starting" in the title and it doesn't have the last line. So, if you did the test, you should have just read the instructions and not done anything. I like evil tests like these

I had the test in fourth grade (so many years ago - oh how I wish I was still.....).
The 35th instruction or somthing like that was "yell out 'I am the king of directions' "
.......I think 95% of our class failed (excluding me).

I heard of a real test like this given in a physical science class. The instructions were to read ALL questions before beginning the multi-page test. Every other question (the even questions) was either extremely difficult, or was a type of exercise (do 10 jumping jacks, 10 pushups, etc) and the teacher made notes of who did what. The last (odd) question was to only answer the odd questions. Most students read through the first page, but not beyond.
This was done later, but students had learned to look at the end of the test, so the instructions to only do the odd questions was inserted into the middle of the test.
