Can you pass the world's shortest IQ test?

It's just three questions, but 83% of people can't do it

Can you pass the world's shortest IQ test?

Professional comedian Donald Trump has come out with another zinger.

After reports that his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called him as “a fucking moron” (this was initially reported as simply “a moron” before one of the greatest corrections of all time), Trump responded in his typically understated manner in a Forbes interview, when he said:

“I think it’s fake news. But if he did that, I guess we’ll have to compare IQ tests. And I can tell you who is going to win.”

So, tell you what Donald, how about you take this one? And it won’t take up too much of your precious time.

The Cognitive Reflection Test (CRT to its friends) is one of the shortest IQ tests around, comprising just three simple-looking questions. However, in a survey of around 3,500 people, fully 83% of respondents got at least one wrong.
