How to follow directions

Can you follow directions? Sure you can,,,or can you?
Here is a simple test to see how well you can.
CONCENTRATE and give it a try- but you only have three minutes to complete it.

It works better if you can copy this test- or hand copy it (or just pretend)
  1. Read everything before doing anything.
  2. Put your name in the upper right hand corner of the paper.
  3. Circle the word "name" in sentence two.
  4. Draw five small squares in the upper left hand corner of the paper.
  5. Put an "X" in each square.
  6. Put a circle around each square.
  7. Sign your name under the title.
  8. After the title write "yes, yes, yes."
  9. Put a circle around each word in sentence #7.
  10. Put an "X" in the lower left corner of the paper.
  11. Draw a triangle around the "X" you just made.
  12. On the reverse side of the paper, multiply 70 times 70.
  13. Draw a triangle around the paper in sentence #4.
  14. Call out your first name when you get to this point in the test.
  15. If you think you've followed all the directions so far, call out "I have."
  16. On the reverse side of the paper, add 8245 and 9863.
  17. Put a circle around the answer. Put a square around the circle.
  18. Count out loud, in your normal speaking voice, from one to ten.
  19. Now that you have finished carefully reading theses directions, do only sentence one and two.

Feel free to pass this along, but I wouldn't mind a mention- instead of just copying a post and dropping it in your blog without attribution.
