Almost scary mind reading game....try it
 
I read at this board daily and never seen this, but apoligize if it has been posted. A friend just sent me this, and it read my mind on all 3 quizzes. Some of you may have done this already, since I know a lot of people here love Ebaum's World.

LINKY

Post the results after you try it.

I was thinking of 11 and it told me I was thinking of 7. How craptacular.

It's not a flash thing, and it's really weird. It absolutely nailed the first two for me, and on the third, I thought pink hammer, and it guessed red hammer. Anyone know what psychological principles are at work here?

Amazing it wasn't one of those things, anyhow i've seen something similar before and it got me again even though i was trying to think of other things.

I would think that because you are supposed to be answering math problems quickly, when you see "pick between 12 and 5" your brain just automatically does a math problem as "12-5=7". That can be the only logical reason it's "between 12 and 5" and not the other way around.
