# Mind Tricks

While stumbling upon the net I got few silly mind tricks. These mind tricks try to drive our chain of thought in a particular direction and then a question is thrown to us. Most of us fall in the trap as our mind is thinking in a particular direction and we give a wrong answer.

Try two such silly mind tricks,I think they are really cool. See if you are a lateral thinker. Scroll down slowly, otherwise you’ll see the answers. This works better verbally, but try it:

### Color Mind Trick

Name the colour of the following things as fast as you can:

snow

paper

clouds

chalk

wedding gown

Say the word “white” to yourself 10 times fast. QUICK!!!!!!!!

WHAT DO COWS DRINK???

Contrary to popular belief, cows do NOT drink milk. They drink water.

### Numbers Mind Trick

FOLLOW these instructions one at a time and as QUICKLY as you can! What is:

2+2?

4+4?

8+8?

16+16?

Quick! Pick a number between 12 and 5. Got it? Now scroll down…

The number you picked was 7 right? Isn’t that weird???

4. pradeep says:

I too tought of 7. What i found is after the brain tries to perform some serial arthematic operation(which it did in the previous steps i.e, addition), immediately given 2 numbers 12 and 5. so the operation addition(results in 17) on these numbers doesnt lie in b/w given range. The next immediate step would be subtraction which results and prompts to think/choose 7….
Its just my logic…pure guess
