|A smart one.|
I heard this question on the radio. Someone on the BBC was interviewing an expert in how the brain works, specifically in quick thinking and slow thinking.
Got the answer yet?
Well, I did not get the answer right....using my fast thinking. When I heard what the correct answer is, I was in the car and must have driven for another ten minutes (albeit listening to the rest of the interview) wondering WHY my answer was wrong, and how their "correct" one could possibly be right.....(all the time using my slow thinking) before it came to me. I felt so stupid. (Nothing with numbers comes to me easily, I confess.)
Well, the next day I asked Zhenya. He immediately came back with an answer, and I didn't miss the "of course" tone in his voice - and his answer - it was right.
He is great with numbers, and smart as a whip, as well.
They said that over half of the students at Harvard got it wrong, too......that did make me feel a bit better.
What answer did you get?
The answer is: (scroll over) 5 cents
