The C.R.T.

See if you can answer these questions.

(1) A bat and a ball cost $1.10 in total. The bat costs $1.00 more than the ball. How much does the ball cost? _____ cents

(2) If it takes 5 machines 5 minutes to make 5 widgets, how long would it take 100 machines to make 100 widgets? _____ minutes

(3) In a lake, there is a patch of lily pads. Every day, the patch doubles in size. If it takes 48 days for the patch to cover the entire lake, how long would it take for the patch to cover half of the lake? _____ days

This is the Cognitive Reflection Test.

And if you take it, honestly, without looking up the answers you will make a mistake.

Because 33% of the “average” people who take it miss all three questions and 83% of people miss at least one. 52% of students at MIT, some of the brightest and best thinkers around miss one or more of these questions. Successful business owners and people on welfare miss one or more of these questions.

Here is why this matters. 

We all make mistakes. The number one reason people don’t make their art, start their business or try out their new thing is because they are afraid they will make some mistakes.

And they are right.

We all make some mistakes. Every success is built on a pile of mistakes. Making the wrong choice leads us to the right choice, but sitting back and doing nothing, because we are afraid to fail, leads to failure. So I am not posting the answers to the CRT. They are easy enough to find. I have a different test I’d like you to take. It’s only one question,

and it isn’t, “How many did you get right?

What I want to know is, “Did you take the test?
