Are you Smarter than a Chimp?

The answer is probably no.

How do I know this? I played this memory game and loss to a chimp. And just to save you the suspense, so will you. This is how it works.

Memory game right? You click the “circle” and a series of numbers will briefly flash on your screen. Memorize it. They will get covered up with squares instantly. The game is to click on each squares in the proper numerical sequence based on the numbers underneath them.

Give it a try and begin by clicking here.

Once you are done, watch the video below of Ayumu, a 7-year-old chimpanzee and weep as chimps slowly take over the world, Planet of the Apes style…

“Inoue and Matsuzawa from Kyoto University used the ‘limited-hold memory task’ to show that their chimps can out-perform college students.”
