Are you qualified to be a "professional"?

Now, perhaps these would make good interview questions ;-)

The following short quiz will tell you whether you are qualified to be a "professional."

According to Anderson Consulting Worldwide, around 90% of the professionals they tested got all questions wrong. But many preschoolers got several correct answers. Anderson Consulting says this conclusively disproves the theory that most professionals have the brains of a four year old.

The quiz consists of 4 questions. The questions are not that difficult.

Thanks to Patti Wilson of The Career Company for posting the quiz on the Wednesday Job Group mailing list.
