So, who are you?
If you couldn’t answer these questions, you shouldn’t worry – it only means that you have a healthy mind. However, if all of these questions were too simple to you, it might suggest a possible psychological problem, and it may be a good idea to seek professional advice.
This test is based on the “contraposition method,” which helps to reveal the extent of a person’s awareness. While for somebody with a standard mind a shoe and a pencil have nothing in common, a schizophrenic would immediately look for deeper connections between the two objects.
How can you know if you’re a schizophrenic person or a real genius?
If you answered all of the 3 questions immediately, you might have an inclination towards schizophrenia; however, if it took you more time to think, discarding the most obvious ideas to come up with a unique answer, congrats, you’re most probably a genius!
