Netflix’s Money Heist is all the rage at the moment, with the latest season having been only recently released. The series’ main star, Professor, is a genius. And that’s what you will need to be if you are to answer all the below three questions correctly. They may seem easy at first glance but so far, only 17% of the people who have taken it have gotten all the answers right.
The test first surfaced more than a decade ago in a top rated USA university. It’s the world’s shortest IQ test. How do you think you will fare? And bear in mind that if you get all the answers right, at least you’ll know that you are smarter than a sample representing 83% of the population. You will have earned the right to call yourself a genius and you will probably be at the same level as the Professor in Money Heist. The test has been slightly adapted to give it a Kenyan context. Good luck.
